Singer, songwriter, and producer, Terrell Edwards grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he began singing gospel music. Being the youngest in the family of musicians allowed him to sit in the student seat quite often, learning and obtaining a passion for the art of music, while no one else really noticed he was absorbing the lessons.
He studied music as a vocalist and saxophonist, but later picked up drums, and piano. Terrell left his home state at age 18 to join the U.S. Navy, and returned as a songwriter, while continuing to build an impressive resume as a businessman and motivational speaker.
He later got a song writing break when his aunt who owned a radio station introduced him to multi-platinum producer, Allan “Grip” Smith.Terrell moved to Atlanta working with Smith on a wide array of artist projects including, Keith Sweat, LSG, Old Skool, Jagged Edge, Dru Hill and Excape.

Known for their sharp wardrobes, polished styles and crisp dance routines, Motown artists broke all ground when they transformed the sound of rhythm and blues and gave the music “soul”. Join Terrell Edwards and friends for an electrifying performance paying tribute to Motown’s finest!

In 2006 Singer/Songwriter Terrell Edwards took his band and a group of volunteers on a tour of benefit concerts to the inner cities of Jamaica. The effort was to bring some good will to the people of Jamaica by distributing school supplies and toys to the young hearts in the community. Although the people of Jamaica were appreciative, the task proved to be an eye-opener of how poverty seemed to have a death grip on the country. Although relationships were formed with the people of the community of St. Catherine’s Parish, the band Leader left the country feeling that little was done to assist the country’s poverty situation. Returning to North America with a un-accomplished feeling looming over the trip, Terrell felt that the only way to bring real assistance to this challenge would be to get help from home. A home where economic recession had reached over 39 million middle-income families. Coming to that reality convinced Terrell, and some of his friends to help re-build the spirits of a poverty stricken people in North America and abroad.
