Biography

While some young people are dreaming about fancy cars, large amounts of money and fame; there are some young people that are simply yearning to grow in God. Twenty-something year old Philadelphia native, James Frager, heeded God’s call on his life and put aside a potentially promising career as an athlete to pursue his musical ministry. He was in love with music by the age of four. By his teenage years he was a well known rapper, but his music was secular based. However, in 1998 he witnessed the redemptive power of Jesus Christ and his life has never been the same. Going by the name of Prayz1, he is poised to take the world to a new level of praise.

His album, “The Difference”, is an eclectic mix of rap and rhythm and praise, with songs like “Church Fan”, “Locks It Down”, and “God Has a Plan”. His pulsing rhythms, soul stirring lyrics, and melodic voice are not the only reasons that Prayz1’s fast-growing fan base loves him. As he travels across the country, both fans of Gospel rap and those who normally prefer traditional Gospel music can not deny the anointing that God allows to flow from his lips. This anointed singer, songwriter, rapper, producer, and drummer understands that his musical talent is a gift. It is because of this knowledge that he leads a life reflective of Proverbs 15:33; “The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honor is humility”.

Whether it is an elementary school or a college, or sharing a stage with the likes of Tye Tribbett & Greater Anointing, JJ Hairston of Youthful Praise, and Kierra “Kiki” Sheard, Prayz1 uses his vocal and rapping talents to spread a word of hope, healing, and salvation to the young and young at heart. With his talented band, Tha UnderDogz behind him, Prayz1 knows how to usher in the spirit of the Lord. He is determined to be a living epistle for those in the world. Young and old, brought together by a versatile Christian artist to worship together…to praise the one [God] that makes the difference.

Lyrics

Stronger

Written By: Prayz1

Prayz1 Featuring Angie White

Verse 1:

Everyday I’m running this race against all adversity

But it is worth it because in the end you face I’ll see

Lord you have made me into what I am today

And what the enemy says has to fade away

I’m more then you say I am, I’m more then you say I am

Chorus:

Stronger Stronger Everyday that I Live

Wiser Wiser Everyday that I Live

Verse 2:

The best time to say your strong is when your feeling weak

I’m learning not to be define by what the enemy speaks

Lord I have come too far to give up what I have earned

And from that very thing I’ve learned

That I’m more than you say I am, I’m more than you say I am

Chorus:

Stronger Stronger Everyday that I Live

Wiser Wiser Everyday that I Live

Vamp:

Oh Ohh Oh, Oh Ohh Oh, Oh Ohh Oh

Na Na Naa Na Na, Na Naa Na Na Na NA

Bridge:

Anybody out there are you stronger than you were before

Anybody out there are you stronger than you were before (repeat 2x’s)

Chorus:

Stronger Stronger Everyday that I Live

Wiser Wiser Everyday that I Live

I’m more than you say I am, I’m more than you say I am

I’m more than you say I am, I’m more that you say I am

Came Too Far

Written By: Prayz1

VERSE 1

WITH EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE IN ME

IM GOING TO HOLD ON TO WHO I AM

IM A LIVING TESTIMONY OF A MIRACLE

BEING MADE IN THE POTTERS HAND

SEE I WAS BORN IN THE STREETS OF PHILLY

A YOUNG PROJECT KID ONLY OUT TO RUN SILLY

THE DEVIL HAD ME COLD FROZE HEART

OUT TO KILL ME BUT GOD WANTED ME TO RISE

OUT THE VALLEY LIKE LILY YA FEEL ME

SO NOW THAT IM HERE LET ME MAKE IT CLEAR

THAT I AINT GOING NO WHERE

I GOTTA WHOLE LOT OF WORK TO DO

YOU KNOW FOR THE MAN UP STAIRS

SO I DON'T CARE IF YOU STOP AND STARE

JUST LONG AS YOUR EYES ON HIM

CAUSE I GOT THE SON IN MY EYES LIKE

WEARING A FITTED HAT WITHOUT THE BRIM

CHORUS:

WE CAME TOO FAR TO GIVE UP ON WHO WE ARE

WE CAME TOO FAR TO GIVE UP ON WHO WE ARE

Verse 2

I WONT JUST RECEIVE BUT I’M GONNA MAINTAIN WHAT YOU GAVE

AND DO MY NAME UNTIL MY FRAME DOWN IN THE GRAVE

YOU PAVED THE WAY FOR YOUR PEOPLE TO DO GREATER THINGS

THAT’S WHY LIKE KEENAN IVORY WAYANS YOU TOOK MAJOR PAIN

BUT NO IT WASN’T A MOVIE IT WASN’T A COMIC FLICK

YOU DROVE YOURSELF TO ENDURE THE PAIN BUT IT WAS NOT THAT KIND OF WHIP

THE KIND THAT HURT YOUR HEART FULFILLED THE NEED TO BLEED

YOU MADE ME WHO I AM TODAY AND I WILL NEVER LEAVE.

BRIDGE:

HALLELUJAH… HALLELU…

HALLELUJAH… HALLELU…

VAMP:

WE THEN CAME TOO FAR

WE THEN CAME TOO FAR … REPEAT

CHORUS:

WE CAME TOO FAR TO GIVE UP ON WHO WE ARE

WE CAME TOO FAR TO GIVE UP ON WHO WE ARE

Fly

Written By: Prayz1

VERSE 1:

Deep down in my heart I wanna fly

A jet a be nice but I’m looking for the prize

That goes on top of my dome they call it the crown of life

I’m a wear it in my home

No not here on earth but where I’m gonna be when the Lord commerce

Me from earth to my pop land it’s called heaven with the angels

And the top man

You know G. O. D. On the end ain’t no greater love

In the world that compares to him

I know we don’t make no sense to everybody

But everybody don’t know Him

So with the pen I’ve got a workout plan

I’m liftin’ Him everyday it’s like a workout man

I’m a give it to you best I can

If you want it then come and you can leave with Him

HOOK:

I really want to leave and fly, Do you wanna leave’

And when I do I hope I reach to the sky

Reach the sky

VERSE 2:

I used to wanna be a star big house big car

Face on the billboard black card at the mall

With a limo on call, never ever have to starve again

And call on nobody

But that ain’t me no more

Too much in store, see I’m runnin’ with the Lord

I ain’t playin’ with the sword

Word of God too fly so I can’t be shy gotta give it

Til it bless somebody

Listen we ain’t here to play games

And we ain’t really here to promote planes

It’s a whole nother’ type thing

We on the move we all trying to see the king

When He comes in the air no problem and if you got some

Let God solve em’ cause that’s really the only way fam

We give get Him til’ we get Him in another land

HOOK:

I really want to leave and fly, Do you wanna leave’

And when I do I hope I reach to the sky

Reach the sky

Vamp: Repeat

Getcha’ life together

If you wanna, If you wanna fly with me

Getcha’ life together

If you wanna, If you wanna fly with me
