During an unprecedented sold-out event this past Easter Sunday at The Kennedy Center, multi-award winning producer-songwriter, Warryn Campbell, made the announcement that the emerging 19-year-old singer-songwriter, CARSON BARNES, will be joining the My Block Inc. family as the latest signee to the platinum award-winning record label.
“I’ve dreamed of this moment for as long as I can remember, and now I can say, ‘God did it for me!’ To be here at 19 years old is mind-blowing and to be part of a family/label such as My Block Inc. seems so surreal! Having the opportunity to be surrounded by some of the greatest and most talented people in this industry is an absolute honor,” mentions Carson. “I understand this journey won’t be easy, but with God, my family, and this My Block family, I’m certain we will win souls for Christ through the music God will allow me to create. Thank you, Warryn, for taking a chance on me. It’s go time!” he adds.
“I’m very excited to have Carson added to the roster. We [My Block Inc.] have some of the most premier music artists in the world, and he’s next on deck! With his youth, skill level, and what he can do, he has the ability within him to move the needle forward in gospel music and create something fresh and new for the next generation. I think he’ll be the next voice, the next Donnie McClurkin, the next main staple that people actually look to and say, “Oh yeah, that’s what gospel music sounds like.” So I’m excited to work with him. I’m excited to present Carson to the world and curate this next new sound for the next generation of gospel music artists through him,” shares Warryn Campbell.
