Not Holding Back is preceded by the go-go infused single “You Are Lord of All” featuring Phillip Bryant and Pocket of Hope. The single is currently top 20 on Billboard’s National Gospel Airplay chart.
Fresh off 2019’s #1 single, “Miracle Worker,” and sold-out domestic tour, the album, Not Holding Back consists of an organically composed list of 12 live tracks – each with its own message, but cohesively gathered to directly touch his audience, as is always the intention. This new set of work promises to uplift its listeners to combat the fear of being vulnerable, and illuminate the power of never holding back. Not Holding Back will feature collaborations with Kierra Sheard, Travis Greene, Rich Tolbert, Jr. and Naomi Raine of Maverick City.
JJ Hairston shares, “This project is one of the most important projects we’ve ever released. Not only because the music is relevant and heartfelt, but because we intentionally revived the musical style of our genesis, while embracing the musical style of our current culture. The marriage of both came together and formed a really powerful body of work.”
Hairston’s previous accolades include 7 Stellar Gospel Music Awards, a Billboard Music Award, and an ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Award. JJ Hairston and Youthful Praise were also nominated for a 2018 GRAMMY for Best Gospel Performance/Song.
Currently, JJ Hairston is continuing his devotion to a greater purpose alongside his wife, Trina Hairston, having recently released a book “A Miracle Marriage” together, while also serving as Campus Pastors for All Nations Worship Assembly (ANWA) Washington, DC campus.
Not Holding Back will be available for purchase on all major digital retail and streaming outlets on New Year’s Day, Friday, January 1, 2021. General admission tickets will be available for the Not Holding Back Virtual Album Release Concert on December 7, 2020, using this link.
