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 "Testify."

Recently Robert teamed up with legendary pianist and songwriter Richard Smallwood to deliver a remake of the Smallwood classic "I Give You Praise." This collaboration is one of a kind that doesn’t happen often enough in gospel and/or jazz music. It’s an extraordinary impressive partnership blending Person’s gorgeous vocals with Smallwood’s signature style of beautifully arranged classical and sacred piano music.

Continuing to expand his musical brand, Robert just joined the league of on air personalities with his own radio show SOULFUL SESSIONS with ROBERT E. PERSON on WBRG Radio Online. Robert’s Soulful Session Radio Show highlights new and independent artists in Gospel (Traditional, Contemporary and Praise & Worship) and in Inspirational and Contemporary Jazz. Soulful Sessions Radio airs each Friday from 10AM – 10:30AM (EST) on

Robert just released his 5th album: an EP entitled Classic Covers on his own music label – REP Music. In addition to recording, 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.
