Stellar Award winning choir JJ Hairston & Youthful Praise have announced the details for their long awaited upcoming release. The new album, titled You Deserve It, will be available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon on January 27.
You Deserve It is the first release from Hairston’s new imprint JamesTown Music. Recorded live at City of Praise Ministries in Hyattsville, MD (where Hairston is the music director), the 18-track effort celebrates the group’s fifteen years as an influential recording choir. It boasts new recordings of Youthful Praise’s biggest hits alongside new songs featuring dynamic worship leader, Maranda Curtis, and Grammy® Award nominated singer, songwriter and producer, Travis Greene.
You Deserve It is the eight release for the award-winning aggregation and is led by the album’s title track. The chart-topping single has topped Billboard Magazine’s Gospel Digital Sales chart at #1 for several weeks and is currently #4 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Airplay Chart. The single, which has become an anthem in churches around the world, has earned Hairston two Stellar nominations including the coveted nod for Song of the Year and Urban Inspirational/Performance of the Year.
Hairston has also announced the launch of Amazing Love, a special event to take place during Stellar Award weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada. The 32nd Annual Stellar Awards takes place the weekend of March 25, 2017 and will premiere on TV One on April 9 at 7p ET.
