Jai's roots and compelling musical heritage are grounded in the rich and distinct musical culture of the ?Big Easy? New Orleans. Singing is not foreign to Jai, actually, he started singing for friends, family and local church groups at the developmental age of six. As a teenager, Jai became a member of the group Endurance; along with group members William Maxwell, Bryon Pierce (Men of Standard), Edward West (Collage) and the late Michael Robinson. This is the group which launched Jai's professional music career.
Currently, Jai holds the elite recognition of being nominated for the 24th Annual Stellar Awards as; Male Vocalist of the Year! He was also blessed to give an outstanding performance for Dr. Bobby Jones' 70th birthday celebration.
A quick glance at Jai's repertoire of performances is quite impressive. He has toured with two outstanding stage plays (Michael Matthew's production of ?Mama I'm Sorry? and Tyler Perry's ?I Know I've Been Changed?). He has shared the stage with legendary artists such as Shirley Murdock (?A Woman's Point Of View? and ?Let There Be Love,? Electra Records), Melba Moore (?Lean On Me? and ?Lift Every Voice and Sing?), David Preston (?Two Wrongs Don't Make It Right,? ?Don't Say No? and ?Can I??

their second project ?Live In Brazil? abroad. He has blessed the masses globally with his music, message and ministry. Their domestic credits are also quite impressive. The group performed at
the House of Blues Gospel Tribute, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and recently in The Essence Festival in New Orleans.
