R+B producer 9TH WONDER has discovered the recording secret that has rocketed Destiny's Child to the top - they pray before every session.

The LITTLE BROTHER star, who has produced two new tracks for the girl band trio, admits working with Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams was a real thrill because their faith makes every recording sound special.

He explains, "They're all down-to-earth women who are real about life and real about God.

"One of the things that really struck me about the girls was that before every session, they prayed. That's deep. I'm a Southern boy, so religion is real big down my way. The whole experience was great. We did some real soul music."
