Washington, D.C. is filled with talented gospel artists. Stellar Award Winner Phillip Carter, the founder of SOV Ministries and the Independent Gospel Artists Alliance Conference, tapped some of the area’s finest for the first DC Gospel Artists United project entitled, Together In Unity. Featuring some of the most gifted in the region, the 22-track project celebrates the genre of gospel music and the multiple musical styles it showcases. Artists of the DC collection include: Darnell Moore, Kendall King, Stephen Key, Rob Mercer, Robert Person, Rev. Dr. Emory Andrews & The Oxon Hill High School Choir, Restine Jackson, James “Kelly Fox” Davis, Jimmy Russell, Allyn Johnson and last but certainly not least, Carter himself.
On Tuesday, September 18, 2012 at 4PM EST, gospel music fans of the will be able to hear songs from the project during an Online Listening Party on CJBRadio.com. Hosted by Kevin James, Carter and other artists on the project will be interviewed speaking on the influences for the music.
The double CD is scheduled for its national release on Tuesday, September 18th followed by an Official CD Release Concert and Live DVD Recording on Wednesday, September 19th at Mt. Ennon Baptist Church (9832 Piscataway Road, Clinton, MD 20735 – 301.856.2170) at 7PM EST. The concert, which will feature all of the artists included on the compilation, is free with CDs available for purchase at the event.
Stellar Award Winner Phillip Carter was moved to organize artists for the compilation because he felt a need for the gospel community to unify itself. Carter says, “On behalf of SOV Ministries, we are very excited about the release of this monumental project featuring some of the most prominent artists in the DC Metropolitan area. This release will serve as a catalyst for many other great and exciting things that will happen in our area. It is my sincere hope that we will be able to break many new artists from this and other compilations to come,” states Carter.
