Grammy Award winning recording artist Kurt Carr is looking to add two new voices to his acclaimed Kurt Carr Singers. In preparation of his forthcoming album, “Bless Somebody Else,” Carr is looking to bless two aspiring artists looking for an opportunity in Gospel Music by having them join his collective of singers.
Kurt Carr Looking to Add Millennials to the Kurt Carr Singers
“It’s been said that millennials don’t go to church and have drifted from God, but I don’t believe that is true. So, I have decided to search for two exceptionally-gifted millennial singers who have a serious desire to worship God in song,” said Carr.
The man behind hit songs like “In The Sanctuary,” “For Every Mountain,” “I’ve Seen Him Do It” and “God Blocked It” will kick off his KC Millennial Search starting Friday, March 23, 2018. Carr is looking to add two millennial-age singers ranging from age 21 to 30 years old-one male, one female-to his Kurt Carr Singers.
“I’ve never had open auditions, but God has impressed up my heart to bless two young people and give them to opportunity to work alongside my incredible singers and I on our upcoming CD, ‘Bless Somebody Else.’ So, I’m looking to add two young voices that I can groom, mentor and inspire to be the people and artists that God desires them to be,” shared Carr.
