Psalm 33:3 – Sing unto him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise.
On Thursday, November 25, 2008, the Lord made bright His clouds and gave showers of rain to a group who acknowledged His calling to sing a new song and play skillfully. Thus, "The Soul Messengerz" were born.
Originating from Washington, DC, the members Pastor DeCarlo B. Coley, Johnny Matthews, Justin N. Young, Minister Charles A. Young, James Vines, Sr., Gregory Parrish, James Vines, Jr., and Craig Wheatley, performances have covered a wide spectrum of audiences. This includes international, national and local audiences and also live and recorded television appearances. The group has shared the stage with artists, such as The Temptations Review (featuring Dennis Edwards), Shirley Caesar, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, Richard Smallwood, Byron Cage, John P. Kee, Tye Tribbett, The Canton Spirituals, Beverly Crawford, The Sensational Nightingales, Jonathan Nelson, Lee Williams & The Spiritual QC’s, ShirleyMurdock and many others. Using as a scriptural direction, to sing a new song and play skillfully with a loud noise, this group of men embraced their desire to bring a mixture of traditional and contemporary sounds that can be heard in their songs and music.
Accomplishments consist of Billboard Top 50 charted artist, signed artist to Malaco Records, National winners of the 2010 Allstate Gospel SuperFest Battle of the Bands, featured artist of the 2011 and 2012 Gospel Music Workshop of America (GMWA), Frequency News Magaznie, Gospel Now Magazine and members of the Stellar Awards Gospel Music Academy (SAGMA).
"The Soul Messengerz" believe in and underscore the need for the restoration of the Church and the harvest of souls. This is done through the promise of God given to us in the last days for the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. Their mandate is to minister in song while skillfully using the talents provided to them and hold fast to a desire that their music bring to life worship experiences which both uplifts the hearts and souls of God’s people.
