Internationally renowned and celebrated, Kurt Carr has penned numerous number one songs. One such song – “In the Sanctuary” – has been translated into nine different languages, re-recorded by 20 different acts and is a Sunday morning favorite at churches around the globe.
Since his 2005 release, “One Church,” Kurt Carr has helmed numerous projects including “I Never Lost My Praise” the critically acclaimed “comeback” CD for the legendary Tramaine Hawkins and Bishop Paul Morton’s powerful “Still Standing.”
On October 28 he releases his seventh CD, “Just The Beginning.” Kurt Carr & The Kurt Carr singers reunite to deliver a powerful opus of good ‘ole church music with Carr’s trademark cross-generational, cross-cultural appeal.
“The songs on ‘Just The Beginning’ are very singer-friendly, very congregational. This time, I’m going back to my roots,” Carr says.
“Just The Beginning” offers Kurt Carr’s unique brand of Sunday-morning liturgies and soaring choir-friendly melodies. The first single “Peace & Favor Rest On Us” is a clarion call that points listeners to life in Christ. The song is destined to be an enduring classic. Another high energy track is “Don’t Let Your Light Go Out” which is preceded by a musical treat from 89-year-old Narcissus Hinton-Brown, a traditional soloist from Carr’s hometown in Hartford, Connecticut and one of his mentors.
“As a kid, she was a star soloist at my church,” says Carr. “I didn’t start going to church until I was 15 and God used people like Narcissus to inspire me in my musical journey. I just always wanted to do something special for her because she never received great national acclaim, yet she remained steadfast and faithful to her calling.
