Kurt Carr and The Kurt Carr Singers

With his classical training and love for the church, Kurt Carr formed the world-renowned Kurt Carr Singers in 1989. Under his musical direction, the six-piece ensemble, which was later extended to a seven-piece ensemble, spawned gospel classics like "For Every Mountain" and "The Presence of the Lord." Together, the Grammy-nominated group have released eight albums and earned respect as one of the most powerful forces in gospel music.
