About James

Raised in Philadelphia, James Jackson grew up in the church, playing organ and piano for worship services for his grandparents church. Since then he has served multiple churches and ministries with his years of music and worship leading experience. He currently serves as a missionary with TheCall and travels the nations as a musicianary.

His debut album marks three years of following the Lord's call on his life as a worship leader and missionary; the songs, a collection of stories and declarations founded in the journey. Written in both Seoul, Korea and Los Angeles, CA the title track "Lord of All the Earth" sets the tone for the album: a bold declaration that in every season and every circumstance God reigns over the nations and remains in control.

"Behold, to the LORD your God belong heaven and the highest heavens, the earth and all that is in it." Deuteronomy 10:14

James has had the privilege of leading worship for gospel artist and pastor Kim Burrell, leading with renown worship artists such as Michael Ketterer, Kristene DiMarco, and Sean Feucht. He's worked with world-renown singer  Patti Labelle and sung for the all-star musical group, Sister Sledge. His most recent project, a single off TheCall's AzusaNow album produced by Seth Yates. James partnered up with Chauntelle Hall for a rendition of the hymn "We Are One in the Spirit" that shook the Los Angeles Coliseum during the stadium event. Here is James singing "Let it Rain" with the AzusaNow Unity Choir.
