Entry# 0019  Kevin Jarido and Nu Virtu

Birthed out Bethany Baptist Church in New Jersey, Kevin Jarido and Nu Virtu bring the holistic healing power of praise and worship to every listener. The dynamic group carried the message of hope to homeless shelters, detention centers, colleges, and concert and entertainment venues. They have performed in the Gospel Explosion III, Dare to Dream convention, and the Gospel Comedy Slam as well as along side Donnie McClurkin, James Fortune and Richard Smallwood.

 

Serving as an 8th grade Math teacher, Kevin Jarido, began singing classical music at age 13. He suffered from severe depression in college, was introduced to the school choir, and dedicated his life to Christ and to singing for His glory.  He organized Nu Virtu in 2004, and he served as a Director of Worship in Philadelphia. Nu Virtu was nominated for both a Stellar and Grammy Award in 2009.
