Review on Brent Harrison

Brent has been singing on stage since he was five years old. You could say he has literally been a singer pretty much his whole life.  Everyone back home in the small town of Thomasville, Al. knows the Harrisons as a singing family.

With his upbringing in the church, and background in southern gospel music, Brent was eventually able to become a full time worship leader for many years. “I embraced this era of my life and gave it all I had - just as I had done in country music," he said.  During this time, Brent wrote and recorded the independent praise and worship album, "Hope Has a Name.”
