Carnell Murrell accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at the age of 22 and the Lord began to stir up gifts within him. In 1985, Carnell accepted the call as Minister of Music. In 1987, he was called to preach the Word. The rest of the story is simply divine.
Minister Carnell's musical ability came to light at Savoy Records, and the world in the next few years, while he was a soloist, composer and musician for the Dallas-Fort Worth Mass Choir. In 1990, the Dallas native formed the Nework Community Choir and recorded his debut album for Savoy You Can Make It If You Try. This disc garnered Carnell and his Nework Choir Billboard Chart action, and numerous award nominations. Carnell's next album, Wait I Say On The Lord, was recorded with his choir in his hometown of Dallas. It swept the country and also climbed up Billboard's charts.
Through the years, Carnell increasingly has distinguished himself in the gospel music industry, not only as an ingenious artist and musician, but as a gifted writer and producer. In 1997, Carnell showcased his bounty of God given talents on his third release Prodigal Son. Carnell has also written songs for some of gospel's greatest, including Rev. James Moore, Men of Standard, The Revival Temple Mass Choir, Ricky Dillard, Bryan Wilson, Patrick Henderson, and the DFW Mass Choir.
Carnell's faith in God and faith in his ministry has led him to take the leap of faith into ministry full time. He regularly conducts workshops and performs throughout the United States. But, he maintains his church affiliation by serving as minister of music for Greater Harvest C.O.G.I.C.
