The Voices Terrance Chatman pays homage to legends

Many know of Terrance Chatman as one of the members of The Voices and their quest to help an ordinary man quit his job through music.

A man of many talents, Terrance Chatman stays true to his musical roots.

What's ironic is being called upon by multimedia mogul Steve Harvey to write and sing a song for a man to quit his job. The Voices rose to the occasion putting lyrics to soulful acapella harmonies announcing to millions on Steve Harvey's talk show that Barista Phil is serving his employers his two week resignation. To the shock and amazement of Phil's employers, they ended up thanking him for his "classy", as Steve Harvey stated, exit strategy.

Being apart of The Voices, Terrance Chatman has traveled throughout the country for singing engagements and as a solo artist he's used his platform to pay tribute to legends we've all loved. Terrance credits his upbringing for his soulful roots. Raised in a household where churchy sounds flowed and old school R&B/Soul played a huge role in his musical career. As pastor of a church for 10 years, Chatman's approach to life in the word was unconventional. He never wanted to stray from the music that had been influential in his life.

With the fame of being on Steve Harvey's talk show with The Voices, Chatman looks forward to the future as he prepares a Gospel album with a soulful R&B feel. Terrance Chatman will also be in concert at Chicago's DuSable Museum of African American History to perform a special tribute to two of his musical icons, Luther Vandross and Gerald Levert, on May 4 at 7 pm cst. Dedication to his craft and willingness to inspire through heartfelt music is evident and is Terrance Chatman's lifelong journey.
