Newly Wed Charged with

Hiring Man to Kill Husband
Dalia Dippolito, 26, was arrested
Wednesday for allegedly hiring an
S undercover policeman to kill her
husband and taken to the Palm
Beach County jail.
Reports say that she gave an
informant pictures of her husband,
Dalia Dippolito Michael Dippolito, 38, and $1,200
for a hit man to purchase a handgun.
She even planned the alibi as well as other information. She
confirmed that she wanted him dead and when she was told
that he was dead, she did the reality cry, only to learn he was
waiting for her at the police station.

"There 's A4lways Something Happening On The First Coast"


Pure turquoise water rushes down the wild stream.
Effortlessly flowing over rocks, and cascading
down a mossy waterfall of beauty.


The weeping willows drink from the sweet brook.
Scorching sun rays seep through the openings in the leaves connected to the wil-
low's embracing arms, vibrant colors of orange, red, and green, unite to make a
translucent shield over the water, as it shimmers from the sunlight.
Peaceful sounds of singing birds and the deep
Bellowing of croaking bullfrogs echo over the calm water. Flowering lilies and
yellow hibiscus hide the hungry fish from the soaring
birds in the clear sky above.
Snapping turtles retreat from the heat in their solid exterior, while birds swoop
through the sky without a care.........................................
Excerpts from Peter Coryell Gould's Poem A SUMMER DAY

What brings laughter, amusement, glee and charitable opportunities all together
on a Sunday afternoon in the summer? Well, for the Auxiliary of The National Dental
Association and their guests, cruising down the First Coast's St. Johns River was just the
thing to do. And in addition to an afternoon of fun, it was an opportunity to garner sup-
port for the auxiliary's ongoing fundraising that provides scholarships for promising den-
tal students.
Why not a cruise? We do have the Jacksonville Princess II yacht and the St. Johns IS
our M.O.? (If you were passing through the Hyatt Regency's lobby on a recent Sunday
morning you would've noticed the lovely ladies and gentlemen in their dazzling nauti-
cal attire.)
The food was spectacular! The Comedic performance of local
Actor/Writer/Motivational Speaker Terry Harris made us laugh hilariously! Thanks to
the spectacular planning of the local auxiliary member's 'Fab 5' (Mesdames Aikens,
Mitchell, Morrison, Newton and Polite) it was an unbelievably marvelous afternoon!

Tanjareen Martin: Tough, Foxy and Fun


By Rych McCain/

global.net, Photos by
Jordin Althaus

Irene in Time is a
recently released
movie that co-starred
an up and coming
actor named Lanre'
Idewu. He simply, goes
by his first name. In
catching up with him
to chat at the movie's
premiere, I found him
to be very interesting
and not cut from your
usual stereotypical
actor's norm. Lanre'
hails from the South
Side of Chicago and
attended the
University of Iowa
where he received a
B.S. in Biochemistry
as a pre-med" student
with the intentions of
becoming a doctor.
When looking back on
the experience, Lanre'
reflects.
"That was my origi-
nal intent, to be a
physician," he says. I
even went to med
school for a partial
semester before I real-
ized that it wasn't my
passion. With the way
the health care reform
was changing and


managed care, I decid-
ed that it was better to
really pursue my pas-
sion. If I felt the desire
later to go back to med
school it would be
there."
Lanre' did study his
acting craft during his
time on campus. As he
puts it, "Even though I
was a biochemistry
major, I did a lot of
plays and theatre to
kind of balance out the
mind numbing statis-
tics and facts that bio-
chemistry brings. So
theatre was kind of my
escape."
Like any aspiring
actor, Lanre' made the
trek to Los Angeles
after his graduation
and started booking
small roles. Some of
his TV roles include
"A r r e s t e d
De velopment ,"
"Everybody Hates
Chris," including
recurring roles on
"Ghost Whisperer: The
Other Side" and "The
Game" to name some.
In his latest film Irene
in Time, Lanre' por-
trays a record producer
named Jakub who is a
married player that
takes romantic advan-


tage of a female singer
he is producing named
Irene played by actress
Tanna Frederick.
While he was a student
at the University of
Iowa, Frederick was a
theatre major at the
same time and they
struck up a friendship
that was re-kindled
when they both ran
across each other on
the Hollywood circuit.
Lanre' pleased with
the direction his acting
career has taken so
far? He smiles, "I've
been in LA working at
this diligently for
seven years and I just
now finally feel like
I'm starting to see the
light of day and get-
ting more opportuni--
ties to excel in the
field, in the craft of
acting. One of the
things that I attribute
to that is the fact that I
also create my own
projects as well. So
not only am I an actor,
I'm also.a producer."
For several years,
Lanre' sported long
"love Locs" but
recently cut them off
because they were lim-
iting his roles to
Jamaican, thugs and


other stereotypes. With
a regular shaved look,
his roles have expand-
ed and he has a lot
more options that are
open.
As a producer,
Lanre' is particularly
excited about his join-
ing forces with Queen
Nefertiti Productions
headed by a young
lady named Cynthia
Stafford. As Lanre'
exclaims, "She is a
force to be reckoned
with. We have a staple
of projects, both TV
and film that will be
rolling out. We have
put together a pretty
sizeable film fund that
will offer a lot of
opportunities to artists
that haven't been able
to make it yet. It is
kind of giving a voice
to the voiceless as well
as co-operating with
m a i n s t r e a m
Hollywood."
And if that is not
enough, Lanre' is also
a certified personal
trainer which may be
an off-shoot of his laid
aside medical desires
to heal and keep the
human body fit.

Movies:
Funny People;
Universal Pictures and
Columbia Pictures in
association with
Relatvity Media, an
Apatow/Madison 23
Production. Starring
Adam Sandier, Seth
Rogen, Leslie Mann,
Eric Bana Jonah Hill
and Jason
Schwartzman. Written
and Directed by Judd
Apatow. Produced by
Judd Apatow, Clayton
Towsend and Barry
Mendel. Unfortunately,
Judd Apatow; like other
hit writer/directors who
have found a successful
niche film formula is
becoming boringly, very
predictable. This film
goes over the top with
dozens of blatant lines
about male and female
genitals to the point that
it sounds like the writer
is obsessing about his
own genitals. As in the
real life stage act of
most stand-up comics
today, this movie infus-
es way too much sexual
vulgarity to make up for
the lack of creativity to
write truly funny lines
and clean hilarious situ-
ations to invoke a laugh.
Where are the censors
when you really need
them?
Humpday; Magnolia
Pictures; Starring Mark


Naomi Sims, cover of
LIFE magazine October,

Duplass, Joshua
Leonard and Alycia
Delmore. Written,
Produced and Directed
by Lynn Shelton. A
long lost college buddy
Andrew (Leonard)
shows up at his friend
Ben's (Duplass) house
unannounced. They go
to a party, get drunk and
somehow through both
one upping each other
throughout the night,
they come up with the
ultimate dare both of
them (two straight
guys) make a gay porn
movie together. This is
one of those flicks that
you watch in the dead
middle of the night
when nothing good is
on and you can't sleep
and you still end up
turning it off.

Homecooking: The answer for a tight budget
Our parents and grandparents were no strangers to making their dollars stretch. They survived the depression, had six children and always had a good meal
ready for dinner. My grandfather was the son of slaves. When we asked papa how he survived the depression he said, "Depression? The Negro was always
depressed." Papa learned to cook professionally in the Navy. It was his talent as a chef which helped him rise through tough times and cook for Presidents.






The foods I grew up on were not fancy. We ate turkey wings, okra and sausage, baked chicken, tuna casserole, and spaghetti. My family is from Louisiana
so rice and gravy was served with every meal.
Cooking from scratch at home is actually more economical and more nutritious than convenience foods which contain a high amount of salt and fats and sugar. Chef Cynthia is a graduate
of the University of Houston.
Here are some tips to make your dollar stretch when cooking: She is the owner of Bennie
Ferrell Catering, a million
Plan a 10 day menu. Cook 5 days out of the week and 2 days plan to use leftovers. dollar catering coa millipany
started by her father, Bennie
Do not shop when you are hungry. Carry a list and stick to it Ferrtell.
Check the Florida Star for weekly grocery sales. Publix often advertises buy one get one free specials.
Buy items in bulk like flour sugar beans and rice. Buy family packs of meat and freeze in smaller portions.
Prepare casserole type dishes like spaghetti and meat sauce, tuna casserole, Hamburger Helper
Buy fresh fruits and vegetables which are in season.
Buy cheaper cuts of meat like chuck roast and pork shoulder to make stews. Chicken thighs and turkey legs and wings are a bargain and taste great.
Use rice, pasta, potatoes and beans to stretch your meals.
Cooking from scratch or "Soul Food" is very simple basic cooking. I believe many recipes were not written because they were so simple anyone could do it if shown how. If you don't
know how to cook find someone who will take the time to teach you some basics. If you are confident in the kitchen share your knowledge with someone who needs help. Let's take time to
get back to basics. Doing so will not only enrich our health but also our pocketbooks.
Here are my all time favorite recipes for a quick low cost dinner. It is written in what I call "Soul food" style which gives a basic how to and allows room for you to add your own flavor.
Baked Chicken withRice and Gravy
Sauteed Spinach
Baked Sweet Potatoes
Strawberry Shortcake with Whipped Cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1 Whole Chicken rinsed and neck and giblets removed. Season the chicken to taste. Be careful not to put too much salt. More salt can always be added later if needed. Place in roaster
pan
2 can cream of mushroom soup mixed with one can water. Pour the soup mix in pan with chicken. Cook until done about 1 hour. Pour gravy from chicken into pot and whisk until smooth.
Serve over rice
Baked Sweet Potatoes: Wash Potatoes and wrap in foil and place in a pan. Cook at 350 degrees until done about 45 minutes (for a shortcut, place potatoes in microwave without foil for
10 minutes. Wrap in foil and finish in the oven.) Slit cooked potato open and put butter, nutmeg and brown sugar.
Sauteed Spinach
2 bags baby spinach leaves
1 onion sliced
Saute onion in 2 tablespoons oil in large pot. Add .2 cups of water and let boil. Add the washed spinach and turn until all is cooked about 5 minutes Add seasoning to taste.
Rice- The ratio for cooking rice is always 2 to 1. Two portions of water to one portion of rice. Start with hot water then stir in the rice. When the water boils lower the heat and let sim-
mer until done.

I fearless approach to reality-based subjects!


I'm having huge arguments with my girlfriend because she can't
seem to get' enough of her friends. We have a social life that's
active considering our jobs and lifestyle. All of a sudden she
wants to go out three nights a week and she's hanging out on
work nights. The only time I see her is when she's on the phone -1
making more plans or leaving the house. How do I ask her to choose me or her friends
and her new party life?
Walt Phoenix, AZ
Dear Walt:
There's a possibility your problems are more about the relationship than about her
friends. You should offer to join her when she goes out and if she says no, then be pre-
pared to have a conversation. Be direct and ask her why she has the need to be so active,
what can you do to improve your social life and be willing to make personal changes.
However if her honesty hurts your feelings don't take it personal but use the feedback
to improve your situation.
Dear Deanna!
My high school sweetheart who is a senior in college dumped me. He told me that he's
grown up now and ready to start a career and doesn't want a relationship to hold him
back. I was crushed because I didn't see this coming. I supported him by working two
jobs and many late nights helping him study. He lied to me and I thought he was going
to many me and support me as I got my degree. How do I tellmy parents I messed up
their money?
Foolish in College On-Line Reader
Dear Foolish:
Your selfish boyfriend used you like toilet paper and reaped all the benefits.
There is no way you could've been very close to this man without an idea he was grow-
ing apart from you. Unfortunately that's the way the college love story goes and you
could've prevented some of this by putting yourself first. You must tell your parents
immediately because they'll be more upset and embarrassed if you wait and tell them
when graduation arrives without you.
Dear Deanna!
I'm worried about my sister because she is the type of woman that has to be in a rela-
tionship. She recently ended a 6-year romance and after two weeks, already getting
serious about someone new. I think she needs to clear her head and realize she is on the
rebound. She has already told this man she loves him and I want her to slow down.
What can I say to her in order to spare her feelings but still get my message across?
Anonymous St. Louis, MO
Dear Anonymous:
It's good that you're concerned because this is your sister and you love her. If she's not
being hurt and there aren't any foul signs of abuse or cheating from this man, you
should wait and see what happens. However, it's too early to see his true character and
as an experienced dater, your sister should see the signs when they appear. Share your
honest feelings with her about slowing down and let her know she has your full support
if things don't work out. .

JACKSONVILLE ZOO AND GARDENS' -Elephant Paintings Auctioned
Internationally for Conservation -Ali, Chana and Moki, resident elephants at
the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, have added "painting" to their list of tal-
ents. Recently, the Zoo submitted the three animals' footprint "paintings" to
the Elephant Managers Association (EMA) Auction starting August 8, 2009.
Fifty percent of the money raised will go into the association's endowment
fund with the other fifty percent going toward conservation efforts in which
the International Elephant Foundation is participating. These organizations
are dedicated to the welfare of the world's elephants through husbandry,
research, education and conservation efforts in the wild. "The Jacksonville
Zoo and Gardens' vision is to be a leader in the conservation of wildlife," said
Delfi Messinger, director of animal programs at the Zoo. "This is just one of
the many ways that the Zoo supports this important cause. Other notable
examples of the Zoo's conservation efforts include the establishment of a
Marine Mammal Rescue Team that participates with State biologists to rescue
injured or stranded manatees and release them after rehabilitation, the Florida
Butterfly Monitoring Network; and the study of a colony of endangered wood
storks that nest on our Zoo grounds every year." Those interested in partici-
pating in the auction can place bids on Jacksonville Zoo's elephant artwork at

$ MONEY MATTERS $

WANTS vs. NEEDS


You may want a Mercedes Benz, but all you need is
transportation to take you back and forth to handle your
business. Truth is, whether we acknowledge it or not,
most folks don't understand the difference between their
wants and needs; therefore, this lack of understanding has
caused many to fall short in meeting their financial goals
and needs. Most of us think that we need more money, but in truth, most folks need
to first learn how to manage more. For a fool and his/her money shall surely part.
Ignorance is the key to poverty and lack, therefore if you don't know the difference
between your \ ants and needs, you are bound to fall victim to outside material influ-
ences that lead to financial pain and suffering.
The media and marketing agencies are designed to accomplish one major goal,
and that goal is to control and manipulate N otu thoughts and feelings to such a degree
that you feel ou need whatever product that is being sold. This goal is accomplished
as soon as you feel that you've made the decision to want or purchase something
without any outside influences. Trust me. we all are subconsciously attacked each
and every daN the minute w\e start our day Show me someone who is living from
paycheck to pa. check and I'll show you someone who is a victim of not understand-
ing their needs and %%ants. The truth is all around us for everyone to see. For exam-
ple, look at the number of low income folks \\ ho cany around fancy cell phones,
heck, look at how. many kids of low income families who walk around with cell
phones. Ask yourself, for most folks, is a cell phone and the monthly expense it
comes with a %want or a need? Do you know how much money low income folks
spend on fancy toes and finger nails? Millions!! Is this a want or a need?
It has been said "in order to find yourself, you must first loose yourself" when I
first read this I must admit, I didn't know what the heck it meant. But as I grew in
consciousness and understanding, I began to understand its meaning. Just in case
some of you don't get it, I"ll explain. Remember earlier when I talked about the role
and goal of the media and marketing agencies to indirectly influence the way you
think and feel, well, another name for what they do is programming. We are being
indirectly programmed, therefore, in order to find your real "self", you must first
deprogram yourself from the falsehood that has trespassed against you. This is what's
meant by "loose yourself" in other words, before you can truly begin to understand
your wants versus needs, you must loose your old way of thinking. Warning! Think
independently and seeking truth requires a large amount of courage, it is not recom-
mended or suited for the traditional thinkers.

Ever looking for' improvement from his championship caliber team '
Grambling State football head coach Rod Broadway could constantly be heard --'"O

took to the practice field this morning.
As Grambling took the field for the early practice intensity and work ethics
was a focus of the head coach. The Tigers maintained a spirited effort throughout
drills and began to pick up the pace towards team offense and defense sessions.
"We have a lot of work to do. We're not in very good shape, but we got some Grambling's Head

the guys get into a comfort zone and do what they want to do. But that's my

ACC TITLE TICKETS NOW ON SALE
Tickets are now on sale for the Atlantic Coast Conference's 2009 Dr Pepper Football Championship
Game, which returns to prime time national television this year with an 8 p.m. kickoff on ESPN.
The 2009 Championship Game will be played on Saturday, Dec. 5 in Raymond James Stadium in
Tampa.
"We are pleased that the 2009 ACC Football Championship Game will be nationally televised by our
partners at ESPN," said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. "Prime-time exposure is always a plus and
will be an excellent showcase for our divisional champions to compete for an ACC title and a BCS berth."
The prime time-kickoff is the first for the ACC title contest since the inaugural game in Jacksonville
in 2005. The ACC Championship Game has been played at 1 p.m. in each of the past three seasons. The
first four ACC Championship Games were televised on ABC.
COOPER RETURN TO GATORS
University of Florida senior wide receiver Riley Cooper has agreed in principle to terms with the Texas
Rangers, and UF head coach Urban Meyer announced that Cooper would be returning to the Florida foot-
ball team for his final season.
Cooper was drafted by Texas in the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft and spent his summer playing
in Virginia and recently with the McKinney Marshals of the Texas Collegiate League.
"We are excited to have Riley back as part of our 2009 team," Meyer said. "He will be counted on
heavily to be one of our go-to receivers. I've said numerous times during the offseason that we need some-
one to step up with the departure of Percy Harvin and Louis Murphy. We haven't had someone step up yet
and Riley can certainly be someone that does."
Cooper opened his sophomore season in 2007 with an outstanding four-reception, 122-yard, three-
touchdown performance in the Gators' 49-3 win against Western Kentucky.
BULLDOGS OPEN CAMP IN GEORGIA HEAT
Under partly cloudy skies and sweltering heat of an early August afternoon in the Deep South, the
Georgia Bulldogs opened their 2009 football camp this week.
"We fought through it, and overall it was a good day," said head coach Mark Richt on the team's ini-
tial workout. "It was very hot and humid on the field turf, and that's what it's going to be like at Oklahoma
State."
Senior defensive tackle Jeff Owens said he was happy to be back and practicing after a knee injury in
the 2008 season opener ended his campaign.
"It feels great to be out here again, my knee held up pretty good today although it's a little sore," said
Owens. "I'm looking forward to us playing as a team and staying healthy, and if we do that, we'll be suc-
cessful. We had a lot of season-ending injuries last year including me, and it's tough to be leader when
you're not out there practicing and playing. Without leaders, you don't have a team. It's like an army with-
out generals."
For the first two practice days, the team will work out in jerseys, shorts and helmets while on Thursday
and Friday the squad will wear shoulder pads as well.
After a Saturday practice in shells, the first two-a-day practice will take place on Monday, Aug. 10
with a full-pads practice during the morning session. Georgia's first five practices will serve as the NCAA-
mandated acclimation period. The acclimation period went into effect in 2004 with the intent to lessen
injuries and heat-related illnesses.

Auntie Roz needs your help!

My dear Friends, Community and Colleagues, I need to raise
$50,000.00 to reach 10,000 kids in my hometown- Jacksonville,
Florida.
For about four decades I have lovingly labored throughout
this country and abroad as an Artist, Educator and Mentor. It is my
proud pleasure to work again this summer with Jacksonville's youth. M y
Peanuts Show Production is perfected and ready to go, together with my
teen project, Auntie Roz Hip Hop Shop.
Please visit this link to see our exciting video:
http://www.videodesk.net/show.aspx?user key=41583&file=auntieroz%2 -
ewmv¶m=10
I'm fortunate to have a downtown Jacksonville st age at MOCA
available for our performances. To fund summer shows at MOCA and
shows at various locations around town, I need $50,000. As always, my
training classes and our live performances include our kids working with
trained professionals, costumes, stage props, and sharing numerous
other valuable experiences.
Our children deserve every opportunity for positive growth and
support. However, I can't continue without your help. In the past, I've paid
from my own pocket to keep the show going! I can no longer do this.
Please, please, please donate as much as you can so that we can con-
tinue to do this essential work.
Thank you for your kind consideration. I look forward to your
enthusiastic response. It's really ALL ABOUT OUR KIDS!
Your partner,

Perfecting the Parental
Balancing Act

By Rose Rennekamp

The stories of parenting-gone-too-
far ha'e become legendary. Did Nou hear
about the parent \\ho \\role to the college
admissions office to report another student's shortcomings in the hopes ot'getting her o\ n
student admitted instead? Another mom completed her gro\' n son's employment applica-
tions. Still other parents have completed homework assignments and written college
admission essays for their children.
As parents, it's a matter of balance -- letting our kids go while helping them to
make the right decisions And it can be frustrating tor both parent and young adult.
However, the college planning process offers a practice run for Mom, Dad and teen.
No one said that the college planning and admissions process was easy. And no
one thinks a student should have to navigate the journey solo. On average, parents con-
tribute almost half the cost of college, so they shouldn't be left completely out of the
process. As high school juniors step into the college admissions process, it's a good time
to learn how to help.
First, have a frank discussion with your student about how much each of you can
reasonably spend on a college education. Your teen might think this automatically elimi-
nates some potential schools from his or her list. However, if you work together, your son
or daughter may not have to shorten that list. Your student may be eligible for financial
aid that can reduce the "out of pocket" costs. For example, a small private college might
be willing to offer more financial aid to an out-of-state student to improve its campus
diversity. That aid package could be enough to make tuition at that private school less
than what you would pay at an in-state public school.
Great resources are available. Talk with financial aid experts at potential colleges
to understand how much aid they distribute to students. Learn about the various kinds of
student loans. Share research responsibilities with your student. Together, you can set rea-
sonable expectations early and avoid heartache later.
Another good conversation is to determine how much help your teen wants from
you during the process. This is a young adult's first big opportunity to demonstrate inde-
pendence and they may want to handle the details. Or, your student may want your help
with specific tasks. Define those roles early. You can always revise them later.
A big help is keeping track of deadlines. The college admissions process is full of
deadlines registering for the ACT, submitting applications, turning in recommenda-
tions, and completing financial aid forms. The investment is too critical to miss an impor-
tant deadline. Early in the process, sit down together and create a calendar system that
works for both of you. Plot all applicable dates on it and assign responsibilities for calen-
dar items. Then, remind each other of upcoming dates.
You may drive your student to college visits, but be sure to let your teen lead the
discussions. Help take notes and take photos even videotape the visit so you can
remember details about the school and campus. If you visit several schools on one trip,
details can become murky. You are likely to have questions, but ask them of the appro-
priate person at the right time.
Many resources are available if you want to learn more about the college admis-
sions process. Start by visiting with counselors and teachers at your teen's school. They
can answer many of your questions and steer you in the right direction for those they
can't. Online resources abound. Access ACT's parent path website at www.actparent.org.
Here, you'll find college admissions checklists, student blogs, and a monthly parent
newsletter.
The college admissions process offers a unique opportunity for you and your teen
to work together. Take some time early on to set ground rules and expectations, and your
journey will be much easier.

planning information, visit www.act.org. Have a topic you want covered in a future col-

Duval Urban Debate League

By: Jamarcus Jackson teen reporter for the Florida and Georgia star



SORE..


i .


The Duval Urban Debate League (DUDL) is a public-private partnership directed
by the Community Debate Council of Jacksonville, a private group of civic and business
leaders. DUDL searches for a diverse group of kids, from honor students, to the chal-
lenged, falling behind and at risk. They put these groups of kids together and create a
debate team. Debate teams enhance the education of kids, 95-99 % of all debate students
graduate on or ahead of time. I talked to Mr. Jermyn C. Shannon EL VP of International
Marketing, who helped create the Duval Urban Debate League, he stated this is his first
year working with DUDL and hopes things go well and to have much support from the
community. DUDL will begin in middle schools and its administrative office will be at
Paxon High School.

Youthful Praise and worship leader. James Y"JJ'" Hairston have tra\'-
eled the world, ministered the gospel, and have garnered national and inter-
national recognition. Through their career, YP has set a new standard
regarding the "church choir" and with no signs of slowing down they con-
tinue RESTING ON HIS PROMISE. With 17 years in the ministry, YP has
undoubtedly learned to trust what God has done and will continue to do for
them.
Founded in 1992, the 35-member choir was birthed out of their
home church, Cathedral of Praise in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where the
group remains as one of the church's choirs. As their ministry grew they
began singing background for artists such as Destiny's Child, Pastor Shirley
Caesar, and SWV, to name a few.
Currently Hairston writes, produces, and leads YP, although in his
youth he did not imagine himself in such a position. Growing up in
Brooklyn, New York, Hairston spent most of his time at Mt. Sinai Cathedral
COGIC where his grandfather Bishop C.L. Sexton was the pastor and his
mother served as choir director. JJ would watch daily as the ministry was
laid before, him, but never thought he would follow in his mother's foot-
steps. Soon after his family moved to Bridgeport, Connecticut, JJ was
struck with tragedy as a good friend was shot and killed. At that point,
Hairston made a decision to make a change in his life and began directing
the Central High School Gospel Choir, subsequently joining YP.
After years singing in the choir. Hairston became co-director of YP
alongside Shawn Brown. When Brown left YP to become a pastor, Hairston
stepped into the position as director. Already co-writing, arranging, and
producing many of the songs, Hairston took his responsibilities and contin-
ued developing the signature sound that people have to grown to love from
YP.
In 2001, YP released their debut album, Awesome God, with
Evidence Gospel (a division of Gospelflava.com). The mid-tempo title
track became an instant hit among church and college choirs across
America, and propelled the album to #13 on the Billboard Gospel Albums
chart. Additionally, it earned two Stellar Award nods in 2003 for Choir o
the Year and Contemporary Choir of the Year, a Soul Train Award nomina-
tion for Gospel Artist of the Year, the Gospel Mtusic Workshop of America
Excellence Award nomination for Choir of Year and the Gospel Truth
Magazine Award for Contemporary Choir of the Year.
The 2004 release of Thank You For The Change continued in the
same stride with songs "Up There" and "He Rose". However, it was Live:
The Praise, The Worship, released in 2005 that put YP on the map.
Producing the anthem, "Incredible God, Incredible Praise," YP received two
Stellar A ard nominations, peaked at #6 on the Billboard's gospel singles
chart, and was also #27 on Billboard's hottest gospel songs of 2006.
It was difficult to imagine howYP would top such a massive hit but
they did with the live recording of Exalted... Live In Baltimore.
The project was highlighted for "bringing it all together." with praise and
worship, rock and R&B inspired tunes, and. church music.
This album created more personal message from the choir and particular-
ly Hairston with "You Are" and "Freedom." On the same album was the
track "Everything Has Changed" which was as a precursor to the message
of Change that Presidential candidate Barack Obamra (now President-elect)
spread throughout his campaign.
The newest project in their legacy is a hybrid of the "ole' school" YP
sound with some new school edge, which adds an additional stamp to the
YP imprint. The choir shares their transparency while allowing listeners to
visualize the results of their faithfulness. During this time of disparity,
RESTING ON HIS PROMISE gives a message of hope and the ability to
believe in something or someone bigger than us. The new single and title
track, with its mid-tempo swing, shares that "I'm resting on His promise/I
know He's working it out for me/I'm resting on His promise/I know that
God is covering me." In YP tradition, their complex lyrics and harmonious
melodies have been tightly packaged into their new anthem, "Powerful
God". Best described as a musical testimony, the song starts asking simply,
"How did I make it out of all the things that I was in?" yet resolves boldly
with "I should have never doubted you/my Savior/always being able."
S The project also boasts appearances by Gospel greats; Dorinda
Clark-Cole with the jazzy yet traditional "Still Mighty"; singer, songwriter
and producer, Myron Butler ministers on "Great Expectations"; and Pastor
Shirley Caesar gives "High Praise" as she graces the album.
YP has had numerous television appearances such as BET's Bobby
Jones Gospel, Video Gospel and Lift Every Voice, The Stellar Awards,
TBN's Praise The Lord, Gospel Music Channel's The Kitchen Sink and
Hometown.Gospel, just to name a few. They also maintain a rigorous tour
schedule; which enables them to Praise the Lord with their supporters all
over the world. Singing songs from all of their projects, their appearances
are known for being energetic and spirit filled.
Youthful Praise has matured in age; however their message has
stayed consistent... to praise and uplift the name of the Lord.
