About The Performers
Praizum’s debut album "Life Support" is played on radio stations across the country and online radio internationally. Their original musical compositions cover an array of inspirational and positive music [hymns, traditional, contemporary, hip-hop, R&B, Christian & gospel]. Praizum has sung all across the United States as the featured artist at various churches, colleges, musicals and conferences. Their diversity sets them apart and gives them a unique ability to appeal to people from different walks of life.
Praizum has had the privilege of providing background vocals for other major gospel recording artists. They have expanded their brand by appearing on television shows and commercials as well as appearing in music videos with Grammy award winning artists like OneRepublic and Charlie Wilson. They have also provided background vocals for Grammy award winning pop group Wilson Phillips (Dr Phil Show) and Grammy nominated rock group Heart (California Tour).
Visionary Lorenzo Johnson Jr. has not only paved the way for Praizum as a musical group, but has also spearheaded a non-profit organization, The Life Support Foundation, to which every member has dedicated their time, working in the community. The Life Support Foundation has sponsored quarterly and annual concerts using music to bring awareness to social issues plaguing urban communities, such as terminal illnesses and foster care, resulting in letters and certificates of recognition from the mayor and council members of the city Los Angeles and Carson.
