Contemporary Gospel artists are using all types of influences in their music. MOJEAN, made up of husband and wife team, Moses and Jeannine Holmes, have a love for Jazz. Jeannine, the singer, and Moses, the saxman, have been making beautiful music together for years. Separately and together, MOJEAN have performed with many top artists, including Daryl Coley, Ben Tankard, Shedrick Mitchell, and Marcus “Coco” Baylor, formerly of the Yellowjackets. Their affinity for Jazz is apparent in their latest release entitled, ONE.
Co-produced by Dana T. Sorey, known for his work with Marvin Sapp, Jason Nelson and many others, and Sean “Smiles” Miles, ONE is a musical memoir of Moses and Jeannine’s challenges and triumphs. The group’s sophomore release is a 10-song collection of motivating and inspiring cuts. Flaunting R&B and gospel stylings, songs like the beautifully-penned, “God Is Still Good” and the reflective “More Than Anything” showcase the talents of this amazingly-gifted team. Gospel music fans will also enjoy the hand-clapper “Might As Well” and the reverent “Slain For Me”. The love birds also include a song to each other called “This Love”.
It all started with 5 simple words: “Can I call you sometime?” That's what Moses said to Jeannine in the vestibule of the Springfield Baptist Church in Washington, DC. The year was 1986. Two years later, they were walking down the aisle as husband and wife. Fast forward thirty-plus years: Moses and Jeannine are going stronger than ever.
