#FreshMeatFreshBeats | Jairus McClinton

Meet singer and songwriter, Jairus McClinton.

Jairus is an up-and-coming singer from Memphis, Tennessee. The Westwood native realized his singing abilities in church around the fourth grade. Later when asked to audition for his school’s Christmas play, he realized that he had a raw talent for performance as well. 

What is the craziest thing that has happened to you while you were performing on stage?
The craziest thing that has happened to me would be when I completely forgot the words to my own song in the 8th grade and had to freestyle the whole entire performance. Gladly everyone loved it but I was sweating big bullets and winging it the whole time. I didn’t quit though and that was when I knew I had the drive in me to do this for life.

Jairus started his songwriting journey in elementary school by copying down the lyrics to popular songs just to see how the words were patterned. By the time he was in the sixth grade, he started writing his own songs.

I’m so proud of Mama Joyce! She let Kandi and Todd get married in peace!

At least that’s what I am hoping.

According to Straight From the A, the may have been some drama a few days before the wedding:

Mama Joyce was there and actually walked Kandi down the aisle. While I’ve heard Mama Joyce threw up her hands in disgust when asked ‘who gives this bride,’ at least she walked away without a confrontation and allowed the wedding to proceed…

A few things I’ve ‘heard’ along the way… Todd’s mom got into it with Mama Joyce a few days before the wedding and reportedly called her a messy b*tch.  I’m not sure if the in-laws cleared the air before Kandi finally walked down the aisle, but I do know that Kandi and Todd did finally say ‘I do’ and it’s a done deal.

I mean…there’s always going to be drama at a wedding. Trust me, there was plenty at mine. All that matters is the two people making the commitment to each other.

Not too much was revealed due to the wedding being recorded for another spin-off for Kandi on Bravo. It is expected to air later  this year.

Congrats to the couple. I hope you two have many years together!
