Kurt Carr & The Kurt Carr Singers Top Billboard Gospel Charts

Congratulations to Kurt Carr & The Kurt Carr Singers, whose new release, Bless This House debuts atop the Billboard Top Gospel Albums Chart this week. The album also enters at #43 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart. This marks his highest charting debut on the Billboard Top 200 Charts and his second #1 debut on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums Charts.

Bless This House is rapidly receiving accolades across the board – from radio, press, fans and Carr’s peers in the Gospel music industry. Check out what the industry has said via Twitter.

Byron Cage (@RealByronCage): “This new CD by Kurt Carr, Bless This House, is absolutely Epic…Choir directors, praise leaders and liturgical dance ministries – you’ve got two years worth of music to teach on this CD.”

Donald Lawrence (@DonaldLawrence):  “amazing songs and singing!”

“I’m blown away by the favor of God in this season of my life,” says Carr.  “After 20 years in music, to receive awards, critical acclaim, recognition from peers and fans – God has just blessed me in this moment, and His timing is always perfect.  When I wrote ‘I’ve Seen Him Do It’,  I knew it was a great song, but I didn’t realize it would be the theme of MY life right now!  I’m rejoicing about this great debut, and my sleeves are still rolled up to work, because – as we know – to whom much is given much is required.”

“Kurt Carr is a prodigious Gospel artist who delivered a project that exceeded all expectations.  I am incredibly proud of this debut and look forward to keeping Bless This House at the top of the charts,” says Geo Bivins, General Manager, RCA Inspiration.

Written and produced by Carr, Bless This House is comprised of 17 lush songs of encouragement and gratitude. The first single, “I’ve Seen Him Do It” is resonating in churches and at Gospel radio as a heartfelt anthem to which every believer can attest.  “When we think about it, we all can say that we’ve seen God do miraculous things,” says Carr.

This builds on a fantastic season for Carr, who earlier this year received the James Cleveland Lifetime Achievement Award from the Stellar Awards as well as the BMI Trailblazer of Gospel Award from BMI.
