SOUTH CAROLINA FIRST RESPONDERS APPRECIATION DAY

Performers for this event

Unisoghn

 

Twenty Four years ago, Five Benedict College Concert Choir members, started singing and performing in college competitions and delivering singing telegrams in Columbia, South Carolina. They had a unique sound and style that made people of all ages move in their seats. When asked who they were people replied, Unisoghn “Unified Sons Of God Harmonizing Naturally”. Once Unisoghn began performing on and off campus, they opened the doorway for other students to start showcasing their talent. Unisoghn now consist of “Baby Boy” Michael Brown, “Chill Will” Willie Green, “Mystro” Steven Vandross and “T-Bone” Terrence Gambrell. Unisoghn has performed and won many talent shows in the Greater Columbia Area, including a local Apollo Show that took them to New York to perform at the Apollo in Harlem. The four members of UNISOGHN are South Carolina natives and graduates of Benedict College. They have been singing individually since they were youngsters in church and continued vocalizing throughout their high school years. During their tenure at Benedict College the men combined their individual sounds to be called by nothing other than UNISOGHN. The group Unisoghn has been deemed the Godsons of R&B/Soul by the late great Mr. Bill Pickney of the Drifters. UNISOGHN has open and sung background for varies artist such as: The Gap Band, Smokey Robinson, Aretha Franklin, Jeffery Osborne, Barbara Lewis, Jerry "The Iceman" Butler, Hank Ballard, etc. If asked what makes UNISOGHN sound so different from others, it would be the passion behind our music. We are not just singers, but songwriters and most of all Entertainers. We want people of all ages, race, and nationality to feel our music. We like to make you think back to the first time you fell in love, as well as your break-up. We like to make you want to dance. If we had to give a name to our music, it would be called "Southern Soulz". Why? We want to touch your Soul in only a way Unisoghn can.

Chris Darnell Tucker

This remarkable young man has found his niche.  His form of performing speaks to the younger generation.  One of his songs performed spoke to both the younger and older generation, using gospel rap with a touch of Old School music.  Chris Darnell Tucker is a DO NOT MISS performer.

Be prepared for the extraordinary, and entertaining, music band P3.  Raining at only 10 and 12 years old, this young band is doing big things in music. With the versatility to perform Gospel, Contemporary Christian, R&B, and Pop music, P3 is as talented as they come. Being raised by a single father (Emmett Phillips), this brother and sister combination is a force to be recon with.  Twelve-year-old Jordan Phillips plays the keys, while his twelve-year-old brother Joshua Phillips keeps the beat going on the drums. Ten-year-old sister Jayda Phillips tops things off as the Lead Singer and Guitarist.  Thus, creating P3!
