Mix classical music with jazz, jazz with pop, and pop with gospel to discover an artist who truly understands the power in living in a musical world without categorical boundaries.

Jamal joined the group competing on Season Three of NBC’s The Sing-Off, where he was a featured soloist each week.

The Production Team
Producer/Beat Maker/String Composer/Arranger/Apple Crumble Lover - Pawel "Bzim" Zarecki
From Warsaw, Poland, Pawel is an over the top creative Genius. One of the most sought after piano players in Poland, Pawel's musical and production credits are too many to name.
We can't overstate Pawel's contribution to His Story the Musical. With conviction of heart, he succeeded to musically convey the depth of Anna's songs, crafting a soundtrack that evokes emotion.
Often after creating yet another genius moment in a song, he would quip, "Trust da Lord brother!" and "Don't spit in my face!"
Executive Producer/Manager - Joshua Brown
From Indianapolis, Indiana, Josh is a 25 year musician and entrepreneur. When he heard the songs Anna, his oldest daughter, was writing, he felt a calling to get behind it with he and his wife's book publishing company, Thinking Tree LLC, and produce it professionally.
While living in Ukraine with their family serving as missionaries with orphans and teenagers, Josh became connected with Pawel "Bzim" Zarecki, who Produced His Story.
Countless hours were spent meeting with Anna, Sarah, Rachel and Kenneth, helping guide the overall vision and process of bringing His Story into reality.
Co-Executive Producer/The Boss/The Brilliant Genius - Sarah Janisse Brown
Sarah is an ultra-creative visionary idea person who helped guide many of the decisions in producing His Story. She is probably the most instrumental person influencing Anna to write His Story, as Anna is Sarah's oldest daughter.
Sarah is also the president of Thinking Tree LLC, a publisher of hundreds of creative homeschooling books. It is the success of Thinking Tree's books which has fueled the production of His Story.
Production Assistant - Kenneth Booher
Kenneth is a talented singer and guitar player. He was an enormous help working through many details of the song arrangements before going into the studio. Kenneth lives in Oregon with his family.
In the studio, Kenneth sang almost all (yes all!) the scratch tracks to help the other singers learn their parts, not to mention playing guitar and piano on a few tracks.
