about US

From early beginnings as a family singing group and praise team, Personal Praise has since evolved into one of the most promising Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) duos in the country. Personal Praise has taken audiences by surprise through their tight harmonies, strong vocal presentations, and creative dance accompaniments.



Personal Praise is a Stellar Award nominated group, has been ranked #1 on sites like Reverbnation, and continues to gain momentum with teen audiences across the country. The mission of Personal Praise is to empower young people to know they are never too young to have a personal relationship with Christ.



The brother- sister duo, Tez (18) and Yana (17) are no strangers to the singing of God's praises. In 2007 Personal Praise was born as a family singing group, but it quickly became apparent the group was destined to be much more.




As Tez and Yana began to develop their own unique style of singing, they wanted to deliver a more youthful approach to Christian music, one which would appeal to a more modern audience. Yana possessed a strong traditional gospel sound likened to a young Tramaine Hawkins. Tez was quite the opposite and preferred the smooth R&B soul of artists such as John Legend. Their father, a singer, songwriter, and music leader began writing music to fit the group's personal taste and needs.



Although no longer performing with the children, Mr. and Mrs. Person are still keeping it a family affair through management and guidance from Person2Person Youth Talent Management Company, which was founded by Mr. Roberto Person.



With leading singles, “The Call” and “Just Enough”, in 2018, the group recorded and released their recent project entitled, “We Are Personal Praise”, which has received many wonderful reviews. The album has been nominated for Youth Project Of The Year by the prestigious Stellar Awards. The album is available on all platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, and Tidal. Personal Praise can found on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube.
