Just Jinjer (formerly known as Just Jinger) is a contemporary rock group originally from South Africa and now based in California. Just Jinjer is one of the top selling rock bands in South African history, with over 250,000 units sold. Over the last decade, the band has performed and toured with U2, Counting Crows and Def Leppard among many others, performing for hundreds of thousands of fans in venues all around the world from the UK to Dubai, and released six critically acclaimed albums.
The band's debut album, All Comes Round, became the best-selling rock album in South African history. Their second album, Something for Now, was certified gold in only three weeks from release. Both albums achieved platinum certification.
2004 saw Just Jinger (as their name was then spelled) doing several arena shows with the Counting Crows and completed their own sold out tours of London and Dubai. In 2005, the band recorded their international debut album with Grammy Award-winning producer David Bianco in Los Angeles.
In 2006 Just Jinger changed the spelling of their name to 'Just Jinjer', to avoid having the second word in their name mispronounced /ˈdʒɪŋər/ or /ˈdʒɪŋɡər/ instead of /ˈdʒɪndʒər/. They released a new eponymous album in 2006 with this new spelling, consisting of 13 songs including both new and old material.

To my Beloved -- my one and only love. ~ Ephesians 1:6
"My Beloved is mine, and I am his.." ~ Song of Solomon 2:16
I can no longer fight him or his memory, my Lord.
Neither have I the desire anymore. I have lost the battle!
Nevertheless, my Lord, remember Thou Thy servant, Elizabeth,
And Thy promises to her, that my prayers are effectual for
all those for whom I intercede with you. Whether those prayers
are effectual for this temporal world we live in, or whether they
are effectual for those for whom eternal life has been predestined,
according to they word. Amen.
