Many consider James 'Judah' Hatcher to be a multi-gifted man of God; but most of all his true passion is ministering through music. And minister he does. James' music ministers to the part of each individual that yearns for wholeness and right standing with God. Not only has James been equipped by God with a voice that is able to destroy yokes and break bondages in Jesus' name but he has been anointed to keep it real in order to reach those who have fallen in Christ . Examples of such realness can be heard on tracks like Heal me, I'll continue, & Use me. On this anointed album James has creatively used worship, love ballads, rhythm& praise, reggae, and contemporary gospel to offered a most transparent look at real life circumstances while acknowledging that Christ is the true remedy to all of our struggles. Born and raised in Baltimore MD, James began singing as a young child and learned how to pick out melodies from songs on a wrinkie-dink keyboard that would only allow him to play one note at a time. Although unable to afford a real keyboard James was determined to keep his vision of music artistry alive by writing and using a tape recorder to record songs throughout out his teenage years. His peers soon noticed his passion for music and he was voted most musically talented during his senior year of his school. This same passion carried over to college and afforded James the opportunity to sing in choirs behind gospel music greats like Ronald Winans, Twinkie Clark, and Keith Pringle (under the direction of John Tillery at Columbia Union College). During this period James also had the privilege of singing in two local groups 'Positive Threat'(along side R&B sensation Raheem DeVaughn) and 'Ntencity'. However after exhausting all funds for college James enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served his country well until being honorably discharged in 1997. All of these experiences have provided great insight and served as excellent building blocks which James recalls upon as he goes about his ministry now. His music and preaching has been instrumental in reaching across generations and cultures with the positive message of hope and redemption that the whole world needs to hear. James is currently an ordained Deacon and Licensed Minister after successfully completing three years of Ministry training at Kingdom School of Ministry; Bishop Ralph L. Denis presiding prelate. This experience has prepared James for the multiplicity of roles he currently has. James has served as co-youth pastor, and one of the praise and worship leaders at New Destiny Evangelistic Ministries where Allen and Sylvia Bryant are the pastors. James is also the President of Of Judah Music Publishing, Great Things Photography and Proclaiming Christ Generation For more information about James Hatcher please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us at 410569-8949.
