One of New York City’s finest musical treasures, James Hall and his Stellar and Dove Award nominated Brooklyn-based choir Worship and Praise – who are known across the East Coast for their vocal somersaults and breathtaking crescendos are celebrating 30 years in the music business with a reunion concert.
The 30th reunion concert will feature GRAMMY nominated special guest VaShawn Mitchell and legendary vocalist Lisa Page Brooks with Praise & Worship by Andrea Dumas. Stellar Award winning recording artist Bishop Hezekiah Walker is tapped to host the star-studded event.
The choir’s last two albums both distributed by Entertainment One garnered both critical and consumer acclaim. 2012’s Trip Down Memory Lane, debuted on two Billboard charts, reaching No. 6 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums and No. 49 on the Independent Albums chart, while 2015’s New Era, the choirs most successful album to date, debuted at No. 2 on the Top Gospel Albums chart and No. 23 on the Top Independent Albums chart.

Sean David Grant, the multi-talented CEO of Trackstarz, LLC and co-host of the syndicated Trackstarz podcast and radio show, debuts his new album Wonder Years on Monday, April 24. The 14-song set features collaborations with the likes of Mouthpi3ce, Jasmine Le’Shea, Ric Sincere and Eshon Burgundy as well as production from Jay Cardec, Wontel, JRuckers, Cobra, PKOneDay, C-Beats and Trav.is.Music. The project is available on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and Spotify.
On Sunday, Grant unveiled a Wonder Years companion piece, a 119-page digital photo album with conceptual images shot specifically for each song, album credits and lyrics. The idea was inspired by iconic photographer and filmmaker Gordon Parks. For Grant’s “Alfie,” an ode to his wife, the flip book displays endearing pictures of the couple. “Abandon” captures visuals of homelessness. “Suffocating” depicts Grant submerged in water. “Honest With Me” showcases Grant under an interrogation spotlight.
Grant wants listeners to relate to his personal stories. “Wonder Years not only chronicles my life but the typical life of a young Christian trying to find their way,” he explains. “You start out on fire for God then trouble comes. You can either run from God or run towards Him. This album shows you how I got through my ‘wonder’ years dealing with self-doubt, doubts with God, and questions about my future. Are you in your ‘wonder years’?”
Sean David Grant was born outside of Chicago, raised in South Florida, but has been a long-time resident of the Metro Atlanta area. Grant, who holds an electrical engineering degree and an engineering entrepreneurship certificate from the Georgia Institute of Technology, is the CEO of Jaidot, LLC and Trackstarz, LLC as well as the co-founder of Nectar Distribution. A former WEA recording artist and director for the spoken word group Destinations, Grant now records for Trackstarz, LLC, is a co-host for Trackstarz Radio & Television, and is additionally a master of photography, videography, web and graphic design, audio production and engineering. Most importantly, he is the devoted husband of Mrs. Alfie Grant.
