Leave it to award winning  J.J. Hairston to take em to church.

“I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that I sang at the WORLD FAMOUS Carnegie Hall last night, Hairston wrote on Instagram.  There’s so much history in that room, and now we can say we were there! Thank you Ray Chew & Vivian Scott Chew for including me. It was an AMAZING production! The orchestra, the choir, the team behind the scenes, were all TOP KNOTCH! But most of all, thank you for allowing us to praise & worship the way we do it!!”

The Chew’s collaboration with Carnegie Hall began in 2009, when Ray served as Music Director for Carnegie Hall’s “Honor!” Festival – celebrating the African-American cultural legacy with genres spanning blues, jazz, gospel, R&B, soul and beyond.  Soon thereafter, Ray and Vivian, as his producer birthed “A Night of Inspiration” to a sold-out audience, with an all-star concert featuring notable artists from the gospel and secular communities.
