There’s one thing Demetrius West wants you to know after hearing him and Jesus Promoters, his devoted band of worshippers. “As Jesus’ publicists and exclusive hype team, we want you to know that you have had an encounter with Jesus, and your life will never ever be the same again. As Jesus Promoters, we take our job seriously.” Indeed they do. West and Company has left a bold impression on audiences across America with their unique style of rambunctious praise and unapologetically rich choir sound. Audiences have agreed with them as their first single, Open the Floodgates from the Choirology disc hit number one on both the BDS and Mediabase charts. Accolades followed and West and JP went on to receive their first Stellar Award nomination. They followed that with the release of Do It Again in 2020 with I’m Next rising to the top of the charts.
West said the projects allowed him a chance to give his audience a view from the traditional and the contemporary. Then the pandemic hit. “It was God’s way of giving us time to get back to basics and understanding that He is in control of everything”, says West. We could have been left to focus on our situations and struggles, but we chose to place our hope and confidence in the power that lies in the name of Jesus.” The group released their new single, Your Name, which has risen to the top 20 on the BDS Radio chart. Your Name serves as the pre cursor to the group’s forthcoming project, Old Fellowship Hour which features them at home in their natural element. Demetrius West and JP will continue to travel the country in preparation for the album release with dates scheduled throughout November and December.
