First, he taught us about what God said, then he taught us how to soar, he made us evaluate our relationship with Christ and now he back working on his fifth project due to release 2011. Undeniably, Eric Carrington is a breakthrough artist. Now his fifth release with Divine Line Records, is categorically what contemporary, praise & worship Gospel is all about.
Eric, born and raised in Houston, Texas, was another Gospel child prodigy, as a minister of music. As an act of obedience to his father, Rev. James Carrington Jr., pastor of the Willing Workers Baptist Church in Houston, Texas Eric discovered that God had gifted him beyond his years. At the tender age of 13, his father instructed him to get on the organ and play one Sunday, and the rest was history. That day Eric found his calling he knew that music was his ministry.
In 1992 Eric took the next step toward developing his gifts with the release of his first project “Calvary”. Although this project didn’t earn him national recognition it caused the local market to take a second look. In 1996 Eric followed up with his second project “God Said It” and this was the introduction of Eric’s signature style. This project announced to the world that a genius was born. Eric has a unique ability to turn traditional gospel music into melodic tunes for the urban gospel contemporary audience. In 1999 he followed up with the release of his third project “SOAR”. This project featured his hit song, “Anointing”.
His forth release T.E.C.P Vol I “Relationship” “Relationship” is an indication of where Eric is as a man and as an artist. “Relationship” is not about the typical Eros type of love relationship. The relationship that he is talking about is the Agape love relationship between an individual and Chris
His fifth project is going to be the surprise of the gospel industry. It has been predicted to be his best work of all time. Keep your eyes and ears open you won’t want to miss his next work entitled “Amplified Prayze” ReleaseD 201
