Jonathan Parker, known to most as “Jai’ Eagle” is a Miami native that is slowly, but most certainly captivating the hearts of God’s people, one soul at a time. For years, he has been perfecting his talents and aggressively waiting on the Lord to grant him both provision and permission to share his ministry with the world. His journey is built upon Isaiah 40:31, which states, “They that wait upon the Lord shall have renewed strength; they shall mount up on wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and never faint”; hence the name “Jai’ Eagle”. He truly believes that in his obedience of waiting on the Lord, his testimony has been built; he’s been broken and pruned, but also mastered and crafted into what God has called him to be so that his ministry can infect the hearts of everyone around him.
As a recent Alum of the University of Central Florida, his long list of campus involvement, and his previous tenure as University Christian Fellowship’s Praise Team Director leave no question that Jai’ Eagle is relentless in his pursuit of God, and that he does everything to the excellence of God; and no, his music is no exception to that fact. Jai’ Eagle just recently released his very first solo EP entitled “The Memoir” in September of 2012. It is a story of the many ways that he encountered God over the years. It took him a while to truly understand exactly what it means to "wait on God". However, by grace, God continued to pull him back, and show him how it was done. The Memoir describes that journey, and has been guaranteed to be of encouragement to every ear that receives it. This EP has blessed the ears of over 4,000 people digitally over the course of just 3 months, and it is fascinating to witness what else God is doing. Since Jai’ Eagle’s release of “The Memoir”, his ministry has been moving faster than he himself could imagine. He has shared the stage with some of our local gospel best, including, Giel, T-Strike, Fee-Lo, and many others. There is no doubt that Jai’ Eagle has a Word for the masses, and you can believe it when it is said, that soon and very soon, everyone you know will have the opportunity to see that for themselves.
