    Jarell Wilcoxson

    Worship Leader | Keyboardist | Drummer | Teacher

    Jarell Wilcoxson is a singer, song writer and producer of gospel music. With his parents Randell and Michelle Wilcoxson having extensive backgrounds in music, he has been emerged in gospel music his entire life. When Jarell was born, he was diagnosed with asthma. This was challenging as a young child. He battled with pneumonia when he was young. At age of 2, his parents attended a gospel fest in Atlanta, Georgia. The gospel great, Shirley Caesar saw his parents from a far distance pushing Jarell in a stroller along with their other children. She wanted to see the baby. As they approached her, she began to pray over Jarell, not knowing his condition, she prophesied that he was a gift from God and that he would not struggle with asthma again. By the time Jarell was 4, he had not experienced any more episodes with any asthma attacks and is now just a history of in his medical records. Hallelujah!!!

    During his childhood, Jarell witnessed his parents singing with the Voices of St. Mark, under the tutelage of Lonnie V. Hunter. He also experienced his parents working as worship directors and leading praise teams, and recording gospel music at home. When the family had guest musicians over to make music, Jarell was very attentive to the melodic sounds of the keyboard. Jarell was gifted his first keyboard at age 11. He begins playing by ear. By the time Jarell entered eighth grade, he was given the opportunity to play for a small church in Chicago, IL where he began to build a list of gospel songs. After a year of experience with this church, he was offered an opportunity to play as the main keyboardist behind a praise team at Community of Faith, COF in Markham, Illinois. His parents were the worship leaders at the time. This position came with much more responsibility and Jarell realized that he needed some training to take his gift to the next level. Jarell was then taken under the wing of a close family friend. John Davis, III, who was the current keyboardist at COF and was transitioning out of the ministry. He helped further Jarell’s gift as a musician, teaching Jarell for no profit, new songs and music theory. Under his tutelage, Jarell began to blossom and his gift from God grew into a singing voice that delivered an anointed sound that encouraged church audiences to continue to seek God for his righteousness and hold on to hope. By his senior year in high school he was leading worship and teaching songs to choir members.

    As Jarell grew in his Christian walk. He was introduced to and joined a church that would advance his walk in Christ and allow him to become a powerful song minister in Christ. In 2015, he started playing for a church in the city of Chicago called “Be Whole Christian Center” where he learned and grew tremendously in biblical studies. Becoming more passionate to serve Christ and deliver a message of hope in song, he began his song writing and producing journey. At Be Whole Christian Center (BWCC), he learned the importance of being prayerful before ministering and hearing from God as he went forth in song. Always yielding to the spirit of the Lord, Jarell has become a strong minister of music, writer and producer during his time with BWCC. Jarell is also the minister of music at Life Church in Chicago Heights under senior pastor Isaac B. Greene. Here, he continues to be an asset to the spiritual growth of the Life Worship Team directed by his mom and shepherd by his father, Assistant Pastor Randell Wilcoxson.

    Jarell is married with two lovely children and a loving and supportive wife. Jarell now has a new single entitled “He Got up For Me” available for purchase, download and streaming on all digital music platforms. With an album in the works, Jarell is really excited and grateful for what God is doing in his life. Today, God is continuing to bless his ministry for him!
