Terrell Carter's prodigious physical stature while standing firmly at an impressive 6-feet-5 inches of sculpted perfection pales in comparison to stellar acting abilities and a vocal prowess.
Terrell's desire to succeed were born through a determination to make the petulant streets of his childhood a necessary part of his past. Terrell's classic sensibility and non-formulaic approach to music can be attributed to years of absorbing the traditional gospel sound acquired through the church in Buffalo, New York where he was a regular attendee at the urging of his mother and grandmother.
Auditioned by gospel superstar Fred Hammond after singing in a Detroit church, Terrell's life quickly changed and he soon found himself working with Hammond, which inadvertently opened doors and segued into a full-time career traveling and working with several other artists before branching out on his own. His preeminent vocal range, conversant writing, and unparalleled vocal arrangement abilities coupled with a passion for creating engaging music from the soul have not only won praises from his peers, but has led to him backing artist such as India Arie, Faith Evans, Patti Labelle, Christina Aguilera and Sheila E., as well as tours with
Fred Hammond, Kirk Franklin, and Yolanda Adams. His musical influences are Karen Clark-Sheard, whom he credits as being his absolute favorite singer, and the late Donny Hathaway.
With appearances in Tyler Perry Productions, "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" the play, "Madea's Class Reunion", and "Meet the Browns" continuing the momentum and helping to build the anticipation for what is expected to be a long and storied career, Terrell will also appear in the second installment of the blockbuster film franchise, "Think Like a Man Too" in the Spring of 2014.
Terrell has three independent albums to his credit and his fourth album on Jam Brothers Music, which is also set to debut in the Spring 2014, has been affirmed as Terrell's be vocal work to date.
