Singer, songwriter, producer and musician Kurt Carr is one of the most celebrated talents of our time. Kurt is a stellar, and dove award winner that has been responsible for some of the most well-known Gospel songs, including 'The Presence of The Lord', 'In the Sanctuary, For Every Mountain, and God Blocked It, to name just a few. At the age of 13, Kurt was inspired by gospel greats such as Walter Hawkins, James Cleveland, and Andrae Crouch. Carr attended the University of Connecticut in his hometown of Hartford, CT, graduating with a degree in fine arts and a newfound appreciation of classical music. He was mentored by the classically trained gospel legend Richard Smallwood, who broadened the young student's horizons to include elements of different musical styles in his compositions and whom Carr still highly respects. In 1986, Carr joined with Reverend James Cleveland and his ensemble, acting as pianist and musical director until the reverend's death in 1991. He formed the Kurt Carr Singers in the early ‘90s, releaseing several albums such as: 'Serious About It', 'No One Else', 'Awesome Wonder' which went gold selling over 500,000 units, and 'One Church' which won him a Dove award and was nominated for a Grammy award. He is back again with his incomparable singers with his latest double CD, 'Just The Beginning' which contains the hot new single 'Peace and Favor.'
