“…I know that through your prayers and the help given by the spirit of Jesus Christ what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance”.
Jairus Williams was born on September 30, 1997. He was born in Austin, Texas, and raised in Jackson, Tennessee until he was six years old. Jairus is the seventh born in a family of eight children. His biggest role models and spiritual advisors are his father, Reginald Williams Sr, and mother, Vi- vian Williams. After graduating high school Jairus decided to join the United States Marine Corps where he served faithfully for 4 years. During his time in the United States Marine Corps, he stated, “there was a time where I found myself struggling with worldly desires and influences that heavily waged war against my very soul”. “After bringing so much pain, guilt, hurt and shame to myself and others, God redirected my focus and convicted my soul”. “This brought forth my reconciliation back to him”. “In doing so I became mature and wiser in my approach to life and spiritual growth”. “Upon reflection of old ways and seeing how far God has brought me from, gives me a strong crave and thirst for his Holy Spirit”. He states, “God has cared for me and protected me in my worse times, I am forever embedded in his loving arms”. “I will continuously use my gifts, talents, and abilities he has given me for his glorification”. “As a willing vessel, I take pride in my humble service unto the Lord, for he’s been far too good”. “Without God, I have no meaning or value”. “We are all so undeserving of his love, but he continues to love us despite our wrongdoings”.
On May 11, 2021, Jairus was shot once in the back after five shots were fired during a dispute in an outside parking lot of a local Fiesta Market east of Austin, TX. After a brief discussion of this horrific situation, Jairus stated, “immediately after I got shot God had spoken to me and told me that I had my trust and faith in the wrong things and that I was battling with my salvation, and pride, becoming a friend of the world”. “I instantly knew that I was going to be okay despite the excessive blood loss because God had given me peace in my soul”. “I knew from that very moment in my life that I was going to do something great in the name of Jesus and that I wasn’t going to allow the world to steal my testimony any longer”.

Jairus is a young 23-year-old new & unsigned gospel artist from Austin, Texas.

This EP Album is special and creatively unique in nature infusing R&B/Soul, and Hip-Hop with Gospel influence. This album uncovers the daily internal battles of Chris- tians and how God’s peace, love, and protection will see us through if we remain in faith.
Jairus’s focus here is on strengthening his relationship with Jesus and al- lowing the Lord to use him as a willing vessel to bring a great deal of influence upon the younger generation and to bring God’s people who are lost to the cross. Jairus wants to make it known to the world that regardless of anyone’s background, lifestyle, or appearance, Jesus loves them all equally and he deeply cares for them. Jairus’ intention is to then lure them into the presence of the Lord for purified salvation. “In life, we must show God that we are appreciative through our daily representation and dedication within him”, he says. “Music that’s influenced by God, is the best music, for it has a divine purpose, it soothes and restores the mind, body, and soul”, he states. “In creating music, I must remain faithful to my intentions, is it to glorify my Lord and bring heavenly influence on his people? “OR” is it to receive worldly recognition & approval? (For this is the intent of an egotistical man, not a righteous one)”.
