Jason McGee & The Choir, established in 2015, have become affectionately known as “the choir for hire." They’ve worked with music icons Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, John Legend, Raphael Sadiq, Logic, and David Foster, just to name a few. They’ve recorded songs for Usher, Gospel superstar Erica Campbell, UK rock band The 1975, Christian artist Matthew Redman, and The Fray’s lead singer Joe King. They can be heard on the movie soundtrack for Birth of a Nation and seen on television shows such as David Tutera’s CELEBrations, CBS’ Pure Genius, and Hallmark’s Home & Family.
In 2016, Jason McGee & The Choir signed with legendary producer Warryn Campbell and his record label MyBlock Inc. They’ve since released hit singles like “Promises,” which was named by Billboard as one of the top added Gospel songs to radio in 2018, along with "Never Let You Go," and "It's Not Over."
Jason McGee & The Choir continue to spread their message of God’s love through music, fashion, and performance. They seek out any opportunity to take that message far beyond the church walls and have become leaders in Gospel and trend setters among choirs. They are grateful for any and all opportunities and have purposed to be "medicine to the spiritually sick."
