Joshua’s Troop Celebrates Return to Radio With “It’s My Time”
Biography

Originating from Chicago, IL, Joshua’s Troop blends urban and hip hop tracks with contemporary gospel. Consisting of more than 40 young people and a band that ranges in age from 16 to 22 years old, Joshua’s Troop proves to be a vocally experienced group beyond their youthful years. 
“Project Youth,” is produced by Grammy, Stellar, and Dove Award nominee Percy Gray, Jr., (New Direction, Chicago Mass Choir) and Jeral Gray (New Direction) of the respected GrayBoyz Productions. 
“Project Youth” incorporates non-traditional gospel instruments to create tracks that expand the normal lines of gospel music. The writers have gone outside of the box of the standard melodies associated with typical choir songs and chosen arrangements that are urban contemporary and easy to sing along with. In addition, the song writing contains some very clever lyrics that are spiritual, while relevant to youth. The vocal ranges of the lead singers are tremendously mature and controlled, especially considering their average age. The harmonies are very tight, and the modulations happen smoothly demonstrating the unique chemistry of a choir this size.
The first singles from “Project Youth” include the hits “He Changed Me” and “Help Me.” Joshua’s Troop is no stranger to radio, though. Their debut self-titled release produced the hits “God Is Not Dead” and “I Found A Savior.” They also performed for the Gospel Announcers Guild at GMWA this year, as well as at the GMWA Youth Forum. 
Joshua's Troop is under the leadership of Pastor Charles Jenkins, successor to Pastor Clay Evans at Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church of Chicago. The name of the group came about as a result of the relationship between the two pastors. During the time of transition from Pastor Evans to Pastor Jenkins, they were referred to as Moses and Joshua. The name Joshua remained with Pastor Jenkins, and so the group became his troops…Joshua's Troop.
With a void of youth choirs creating music that appeals to youth, “Project Youth” will fill this shortage. Combined with their energetic live show, Joshua’s Troop will be a favorite of people of all ages.
