Gospel music is the most soul-stirring music created and SOV Ministries and its founder, genre trailblazer and label owner, Phillip Carter, are providing two projects just for the choir music lover. The holidays are just around the corner and so are the sounds of the season. Carter provides something melodic to ring in the holidays with a brand new Christmas project entitledChristmas with Phillip Carter & SOV. Created with the choir director in mind, Carter provides new sacred music for Christmas. In addition to the seasonal release, he is also releasing another CD entitled Brandon J. Felder Presents The Largo High School Choir: Rejoice: A Celebration of Music. Delivering Christmas favorites along with great Gospel music for every season, the CD showcases the award-winning choir from Prince George’s County, Maryland, under the direction of Brandon J. Felder. Both releases are currently available on digital music outlets.


Christmas with Phillip Carter & SOV is a 14-track project featuring songs like “Christmas Is A Special Time of Year”, “The Angels Sing Hallelujah” and “El Shaddai”. Carter says he wanted to record the project to introduce new sounds during a very familiar season. He says, “The new CD is full of Christmas music that churches can sing for their Christmas cantatas and other holiday programs. I specifically targeted this release to choir directors and church musicians looking for Christmas music to bring to their congregations. In addition to familiar songs, there are a few that I wrote and Gospel Artist and Songwriter Kendall King’s song, ‘Holy God’ is included as well. There is also one instrumental track called ‘Christmas In The Summertime’ featuring saxophonist, Phil French”.


Many will recognize tracks like “O Come Let Us Adore Him” and “Hark The Herald Angels Sing”, but Carter added a splash of “churchiness” to every tune. Songs like “Christ Was Born This Way”, which features a chorus of Richard Smallwood’s classic, “Total Praise”, “and “We Will Glorify”, are fresh additions to the Christmas repertoire. “And The Glory”, pulled from Handel’s Messiah, receives a makeover and “Merry Christmas” takes us to the islands to celebrate with its reggae flavor. Those who love uplifting Christmas tunes will find that Christmas with Phillip Carter & SOV is the perfect addition to the holiday collection. The project can be purchased from
