“I am really excited,” says Kurt Carr who is currently on the final leg of a major market promotional tour. “I am so grateful that even though I’ve been away a few years, people have not forgotten about me. I have greatly enjoyed producing for other artists, who I really admire, but it is great to be back and making music with the wonderful Kurt Carr Singers and I thank everyone for their support.”
Kurt Carr has penned numerous number one songs, including the ubiquitous “In the Sanctuary” which has been translated into nine different languages, re-recorded by 20 different acts and is a Sunday morning favorite at churches around the globe.
