Terry was born in Houston, Texas and at the young age of 8 years old started singing in his Grandfatherâ€™s church with his Mother. In 1984, Terry tried out for a gospel group known as â€œThe Gospel Messengers.â€ Terry sang tenor for this group for 17 years sharing the stage with other noted southern gospel groups such as â€œThe Mid-South Boys,â€ â€œThe Rex Nelen Singers,â€ and â€œThe Nerthamsâ€.
In 1999, Terry left the â€œGospel Messengersâ€ and began singing with the â€œSouthern Spirit Quartetâ€. They were privileged to share the stage with many other southern gospel groups, to name a few, â€œThe Kingsmenâ€, â€œGold Cityâ€, â€œThe Stanleysâ€, â€œSouthern Plainsmenâ€, â€œGary Shepardâ€, and â€œMark Lanierâ€. This experience set the stage for the â€œSouthern Spirit Quartetâ€ to be voted the Best Male Quartet three years in a row. Terry was voted Male Tenor of the year three years in a row by the Southern News Fan Favorites Poll. In November 2005, Terry resigned from the â€œSouthern Spirit Quartetâ€ feeling he was being led in a new direction, which resulted in him joining another group called â€œThe New Liberty Quartetâ€.
Terry has presently signed a recording contract with Showtime Records, in Nashville, TN., and is now in the process of recording his own solo album project,
plus recording a new album project with â€œThe New Liberty Quartetâ€. Terry is also involved with writing several songs that will be recorded in these projects.
With Terryâ€™s dedication and God given talent, he has and will continue to spread the word of God through his music endeavors and will continue to be successful in the gospel music industry. Terry is a member of the Gateway Tabernacle Church (which was established by Terryâ€™s Grandfather 80 years ago), and is now on tour with â€œThe New Liberty Quartetâ€.
