Few Gospel artists are blessed to be dubbed a “quadruple threat”. But then again, few artists have the talents of Restine Jackson. A singer, songwriter, producer and composer, Jackson has been doused with amazing musical gifts. But to box this blessed young man in with just four gifts gives a partial picture of this exceptional individual. He is also known as a dynamic speaker, teacher, worship leader and motivational speaker.
As the head of Restine Jackson & Grace, he’s appeared in concert with top names including MaryMary, Yolanda Adams, Vickie Winans, Ricky Dillard & New G, Deitrick Haddon & The Voices of Unity and many others. Covered in the Washington Post, many were introduced to this musical sensation on television shows like BET’s Teen Summit and Bobby Jones Gospel. It’s no surprise that this Morgan State University graduate and current ministry student at Wesley Theological Seminary is igniting the Gospel music industry with his contemporary, yet diverse style of praise and worship.
Known for his national radio hit, “I Command My Soul To Bless The Lord”, and six CDs on Wondrous World Records, he is readying his forthcoming project entitled I’m Free. Full-time, Restine is a music teacher at a school in the Nation’s Capital, and is Minister of Music at Journey of Faith Church in Waldorf, MD, and at the church of his late father, Bishop Restine Jackson III, at Word of Grace Worship Center in Clinton, MD. He is the husband of Mrs. Sherell Jackson and the proud father of Dilan, Kaylin and Ryan.
Whitney Curry, the youngest child of Bishop and Mrs. Restine T. Jackson III, was born in the great Motor City of Motown, also known as, Detroit, Michigan. From an early age, Whitney showed a great love for God, the work of the ministry in her father’s church and a strong passion for music. At the tender age of six Whitney began to grace many stages singing solos fearlessly. Whitney went on to pursue her love for music at Bowie State University and received her Bachelor of Arts in Music Voice with a minor in Business Administration. Because of her unique position as the daughter of a Bishop and Pastor, as well as being the sister to a rising star in the Gospel Music Industry, Whitney brings a perspective that is new and compelling for her audience. The testimony of God’s blessings in her life allow many young people to identify with her message that tells of the grace of God and what young people must do to walk in the fullness of their destiny.
Since 1998, Whitney has been a part of her brother’s music ministry, Restine Jackson & Grace. In 2011, God inspired Whitney to launch her own music ministry. She has been blessed to release the hit single “Come Fill This House” which “is getting rave reviews, showcasing the amazing vocal talents of Curry,” states the Praise Break Article. Whitney is scheduled to release her next single “Worship U” this Spring. Whitney has had the privilege to grace the stage with JJ Hairston, Johnathan Nelson, Virtue, Mike McCoy and Voices United, Deitrick Haddon, Dorinda Clark-Cole and many more gospel artists. Whitney is not boxed into just singing, but is also a talented songwriter and musician. “Worship is what I do,” explains Whitney. “I have a sound of worship in my belly. I want to deliver a worship experience every time we sing,” she says.
Whitney was called to the ministry in 2001 and has faithfully prepared herself to be used by God. Elder Whitney Curry became a First Lady in July of 2009 when God elevated her husband to Pastor her church, Word of Grace Worship Center. In addition, she is intricately involved with music at her local assembly, she leads the Praise & Worship Team, is the Director of the Grace 4 U Church Choir, as well as the overall minister of Music. God has now taken Elder Curry’s ministry to another level by elevating her husband to Senior Pastor and her to Co-Pastor of Word of Grace Worship Center in March of 2014. Whitney’s passion for ministry has grown and she has now received her Master’s in Theology focused on Pastoral Leadership from Grand Canyon University.
Elder Whitney Curry loves the Lord, loves the Ministry, loves music and most of all loves God. She believes that God has called her to minister through her music. God has given her a platform to minister in worship and song and she does not take any opportunity that she is given for granted. As she partners with her record label Wondrous World Record and Destiny Entertainment she believes her upcoming project “Free to Worship” will bless the masses.
