Youthful Praise & J.J. Hairston

Be it the effervescent choir leader and his drill-sergeant-meets-preacher way of delivering the call and response, or be it that the audience levels are just pumped up real high, J.J. Hairston's 2012 effort After This captures the worship experience with a power and punch well above that of other live albums, gospel or otherwise. Recorded live in 2011 at the First Cathedral in Bloomfield, Connecticut, After This features Hairston's crisp and bright Youthful Praise choir, whose gifted soloists give up some time here, but to a well above worthy guest list that includes Tye Tribbett, John P. Kee, James Fortune, and others. Check the highlight title track, which offers strength to the sick and needy and was inspired by Hairston's own dealings with his mother's cancer diagnosis.
Formed: 2001 in Bridgeport, Connecticut
Years Active: '00s, '10s
