From early beginnings as a family singing group and praise team, Personal Praise has since evolved into one of the most promising Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) duos in the country. Personal Praise has taken audiences by surprise through their tight harmonies, strong vocal presentations and creative dance accompaniments.
Personal Praise has ranked #1 on sites like Reverbnation and continues to gain momentum with teen audiences across the country. The mission of Personal Praise is to empower young people to know they are never too young to have a personal relationship with Christ.
The brother- sister duo, Tez (17) and Yana (16) are no strangers to the singing of God's praises. In 2007 Personal Praise was born as a family singing group, but it quickly became apparent the group was destined to be much more.
As Tez and Yana began to develop their own unique style of singing, they wanted to deliver a more youthful approach to Christian music, one which would appeal to a more modern audience. Yana possessed a strong traditional gospel sound likened to a young Tramaine Hawkins. Tez was quite the opposite and preferred the smooth R&B soul of artists such as John Legend. Their father, a singer, songwriter, and music leader began writing music to fit the group's personal taste and needs.
Although no longer performing with the children, Mr. and Mrs. Person are still keeping it a family affair through management and guidance from Person2Person Youth Talent Management Company, which was founded by Mr. Roberto Person.
The group is now working on their first nationally distributed album with includes radio single, “The Call”. “The Call” was first recorded in the late 80’s by critically acclaimed and awardwinning group, “Anointed” which featured a brother-sister duo. Personal Praise felt the messageof the song was still appropriate today and created their own rendition. The album will be available to the public by Spring, 2018.
