Lorenzo Johnson is the visionary behind Praizum. Determine to create a positive outlet for this generation and a fresh sound, he formed the group in 2006. But what he created was more than just a creative expression, it was also a vehicle to bring awareness to illnesses that devastate families all over the world. Shaped by his own personal tragedy and loss, his passion leads him to take the stage with purpose, hoping to impact lives and make a difference with every note and melody. Lorenzo's heart was always beating to the rhythm of music. At a young age he was considered gifted, and his gifts and talents have made room for him in the gospel and mainstream industry.

He has earned various musical credit working with artist like, R&B sensation, Omarion as a instrumental arranger.
