J. Norris

Norris J was born in the inner city of Fort Worth, TX on November 9, 1976. He is the second eldest of 4 children. Growing up in a divorced family home, he battled many challenges similar to today's urban teenager, such as low self-esteem, wanting to fit in, street life and peer pressure.
Music was a great escape from the world around him. His love for singing, hip-hop and rapping provided a release of creativity.

Norris was led to Lord at an early age in the Church of God in Christ. As a teenager in the church, he loved the Lord, but knew that "hip-hop [was] the language of the streets". He wanted to reach his peers by engaging them through music they could relate to. He started writing in order to minister the word through music in 1999, which opened doors for him to travel the country as a member of the hit group, 'XFactor'. The duo released a self titled album in 2004. Norris received rave reviews for his writing which definitely ministered to all those who heard their music.

His style is very relevant to pop culture, but the main focus is on praising God. His music includes high-energy praise tunes that make you want to get up and dance, to mid-tempo songs that can transition you into worship. Although his music is geared toward our youth, it touches the lives of anyone in need of encouragement through a positive message. His passion is to be a voice for a young generation, that would meet them where they are and introduce them to Christ through Hip-Hop music.
Norris J. currently resides in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex where he is the devoted husband and father to his wife and three children. He is a deacon and faithful member of New Breed Christian Center in Fort Worth, TX under Pastors Darrell and La'Tonya Blair.
