At the young ages of 2 and 4, Contemporary gospel singers, Tonita and Iralynn was 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". In addition to their musical career, T&I are also dedicated to their duties in their churches. Tonita is a faithful member of the Temple Grove Baptist Church where the Rev. J. W. Neely is pastor. She also serves as Secretary of the Temple Grove Combined Choir. Iralynn is a loyal member of the Just Jesus Word of God Church where the Rev. Eric B. Walker presides as pastor. Iralynn is also 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 serve the will of God.
