Robert E. Person

Native Washingtonian Robert E. Person’s classical vocal training and love for classic hymns—as well as contemporary gospel—have helped him carve out a unique place in today’s gospel arena.

Robert honed his musical gift at the prestigious Morehouse College—where he held membership in the world renowned Morehouse College Glee Club—as well as at the University of the District of Columbia. The recent three-time 2016 Rhythm of Gospel Awards recipient has a shelf full of independent music awards for his vocal performances of classics like "Someday We'll All Be Free," "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" and his original works "God Has A Plan," "Clap Your Hands" and most recent hit "Testify."

Recently Robert teamed up with Jazz Pianist Allyn Johnson to deliver a socially conscious anthem "Let My People Live." Person & Johnson stylistically merged in trumpeter Dre King and sanctioned rapper Deacon Izzy to flow a poetic account of the growing tragic occurrences played out in the communities of the USA.

Currently, Robert is in the studio working on a new EP/album called Classic Covers on his own music label – REP Music. In addition to self-producing four well-received projects, Robert has toured as a background singer for pop superstar Josh Groban, and worked with musical heavyweights that traverse genres, including Patti LaBelle, George Benson and Karen Clark Sheard. Robert is a member of Holy Comforter-Saint Cyprian Catholic Church, where he serves in music ministry.

“I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever; with my mouth will I make known Thy faithfulness to all generations.” -Psalm 89:1
