Great Gospel music can uplift and inspire people, and that’s what Phillip Carter and his group SOV (Sounds of Victory) do—and they do it well. Carter and SOV won the 2010 Stellar Award for “Fan Favorite Choir of the Year.”
Carter began playing the piano pretty much right out of the womb—seriously, he was tinkling the ivories before he was two-years-old. Then, at age nine, he started directing choirs. Since then, he served as the Director of the Bowie State University Gospel Choir, the Assistant Director of the Howard University Gospel Choir, and he’s currently the Director of the Georgetown University Choir. This man is the real deal!
Focused on Washington, D.C. and nearby communities in Maryland and Virginia, Carter has been working with his group of more than a dozen singers and musicians—Sounds of Victory—since 1997. Together they’ve traveled across the country and beyond to sing for the Lord and encourage many people with songs of hope, praise and worship.
With both a traditional and contemporary approach to Gospel music, Phillip Carter and SOV currently have a new single out called “A Friend Unfailing.” If you like deep, impassioned singing about how Jesus is our unfailing friend, download the song here.
