Biography

Known for its brand of exuberant, urban-tinged gospel and praise & worship songs, Youthful Praise is anchored by James "J.J." Hairston, who both directs the choir and writes most of its material. Formed in 2001 out of Turner's Faith Temple in Bridgeport, Connecticut, the choir was originally known as Teens of TFT, and released a debut album, Awesome God, that same year on Evidence Gospel. A second album, Thank You for the Change, which featured a guest spot by Coko, arrived in 2004, followed by Live! The Praise...The Worship, a year later in 2005. Television appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Bobby Jones Gospel and performances with Joan Osborne, Shirley Caesar, and Destiny's Child increased the choir's visibility and fan base, as did its exuberant, energetic live shows and urban affinities. Exalted, recorded live in Baltimore, Maryland, was released on both CD and DVD in 2007. It would be five years before the next album, After This, arrived in the spring of 2012, with I See Victory following two years later in 2014. ~ Steve Leggett
