At the young ages of 2 and 4, Contemporary gospel singers, Tonita and Iralynn were born into the genre. They began singing together under the leadership of their parents, Mr. Glynell and Mrs. Nora L. Johnson. T & I spent their formative years surrounded by family, faith, and music.
T&I have participated in many church programs, talent shows, concerts, weddings, and various benefit programs. These two young women of God have also provided background vocals for many up-coming artists. In the past year T & I provided background vocals for the up-coming play called “A House Divided will fall,” and have participated in "Rebound" the Movie's Mix and Mingle fund raiser to raise awareness about the job market and help prevent foreclosure for a needy family and they have also participated in feeding the hungry of Atlanta with the Just Jesus Word of God Church family every fourth Sunday morning. These talented sisters just released their Cd in September of 2010 entitled, "Vessel" T & I have been nominated for the 2011 & 2012 Urban Inspirational Awards, nominated in three categories of the 2012 Prayze Factor People's Choice Awards in Atlanta, GA and are also nominated for the 2013 Annual Gospel Music Awards in Mobile, AL for Contemporary Artist of the Year. T&I's song "With God's Love" has been chosen to be on The Prayze Factor Awards Season 1 Compilation Cd that will be produced by Universal Records. The Cd comes out in January of 2013.
In addition to their musical career, T&I are also dedicated to their duties in their church. Tonita is a member Just Jesus Word of God Church where the Rev. Eric B. Walker presides as pastor.

Tonita is a happy newlywed and Iralynn has been married for over six years and is a dedicated wife and mother to her husband and two young boys.
Although T&I include R&B flavored songs, hip-hop, and smooth ballads, in both contemporary and traditional settings, they never altered their message, and that is to do the will of God.
