Silken clarity and captivating sound best describe Brent Carter. This native New Yorker had only one desire since his early childhood and that was to entertain. Attending the Performing Arts High School of New York alongside Wesley Snipes and Esai Morales, he learned to utilize his gifts to their fullest potential.
His theatrical experiences are vast and have opened many doors. His most recent was traveling with Mike Matthew’s hit gospel play, Forbidden Fruit where he landed the leading role of Marcus, also featuring Todd Bridges, James Avery and Marla Gibbs. Earlier in the year Brent starred in Who Can You Trust? with Hawthorne James of The Five Heartbeats, Tony Award winner Melba Moore, Ralph Tesvant, former lead singer of New Edition and many more.
His melodious voice has been in great demand for a number of years, which has allowed him to perform at The Apollo Theater, appear on The Arsenio Hall Show, The Tonight Show and on Vibe.
Carter has had the pleasure of singing with Chris Walker, Malira, Phil Perry, German funk band Chilly Bob, Jeff Tamelier, Francis Rocco Prestia and Mark Whitfield. He’s also been touring with BeBe and CeCe Winans, B.B. King, and Regina Bell, replacing Peabo Bryson on A Whole New World duet.
In 1995, Brent ultimately landed the position of lead singer of the phenomenal group Tower of Power (T.O.P.). In his 5 and ½ year tenure he recorded 3 albums and toured the world to sold-out audiences in Mexico, Germany, Switzerland, England, France, and Holland just to name a few.
Carter’s voice will entrance you by wrapping itself around your heart and won’t let go until the last syllable. It is virtually impossible to walk away from an evening listening to Brent Carter’s sultry tones and not be touched.
