Thaddaeus 'Tee' Gaines, a native of Chicago, Illinois, has a love and appreciation for music, which has compelled him to share his gift with the world. His musical career started at an early age, being the son of a Baptist minister, the late Rev. Claudia Gaines. Growing up in the church laid the foundation for the discipline and dedication needed for his future work in the music industry. His gift has led him to meet and work with many notable artists in the music industry. Those experiences have been in the genres of jazz, R&B and Gospel. His style and dedication have allowed doors to be opened that cross racial, political, generational and denominational barriers. Tee's prayer is that God will continue to open doors, so that he can continue to be a blessing to others through his ministry. Thaddaeus Gaines is the founder of Tee Management Entertainment and Tee Entertainment Productions, managing and producing several groups in various genres of music. He also serves as the talented percussionist with many of his artists. In 2003, Tee answered God's call to organize a group of psalmists, calling them Judah, which biblically means 'Praise'. So it is appropriate that this high-spirited, anointed group flows under the mandate from God to cause people to encounter Him in a worship experience. Made up of six diverse and talented singers and four anointed musicians, Judah is releasing their first CD, SOUL'D OUT, which is bound to have you rejoicing and desiring a closer walk with God. The independent project was prepared with Thaddaeus Gaines as the executive producer, and Jason 'Ja' La Mar Yates, as the musical director, songwriter and vocal arranger.
