JJ Hairston Discusses New Album “Not Holding Back,” Why 2020 Was His ‘Most Difficult Year,’ and How the Coronavirus Pandemic Has Taught Christians to Return to God

“Not Holding Back,” JJ Hairston

Award-winning gospel singer J.J. Hairston says a global pandemic has taught Christians how to return to true devotion to God. He urged Christians to follow Jesus’ example as He was the “first to preach a socially distant word.”

Hairston released Not Holding Back, his 11th studio album at the top of the year. The record was recorded during the national lockdown of 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and the music instructor said the title of the album release represents the theme of everything he and his team did musically.

“I honestly can say 2020 is the most difficult year I’ve ever experienced. And it’s not because I haven’t experienced loss or grief in other years. It’s just been a collective source of strain for so many people. So even in seasons of the year where we were doing OK, it still hurt us to watch other people’s struggle,” Hairston told The Christian Post in a recent interview.
