Phillip Carter and his ensemble SOV (Sounds of Victory) treated their fans and supporters to a free concert on Saturday, April 26 at Mt. Ephraim Baptist Church in Upper Marlboro, MD. Carter called the free event a “fan experience.” And indeed it was!
The songs went all the way back to 1997 and delighted fans and gave the unfamiliar a chance to see the depth of the treasure trove of songs that are the signature of Phillip Carter and SOV. Songs included, “Jesus I’ll Never Forget,” “A Friend Unfailing,” “Over There” and so many more. There was also an engaing mic toss on “A Friend Unfailing,” with Kendall King, Ronnette Harrison, Darnell Moore and Kaneisha Trott.
Before the concert, Phillip Carter shared some exciting news. After very successful production effort last year with Maranatha, Carter announced that he has inked a deal with Maranatha for multiple distribution deals for Phillip Carter and SOV and that the group will be releasing their first Christmas album this year.
