Washington, D.C. native Charles Butler is a music teacher and director, as well as a vocalist and leader of the Stellar Award-nominated group Charles Butler & Trinity. With Trinity, Butler sought to raise the standard for contemporary gospel community choirs. In 2011, he and his group were given a lift by a spot on Jawn Murray Presents Untapped, a compilation of up-and-coming gospel artists. They made their proper debut two years later with Better. Butler, along with Mike Scott, was selected to lead a multi-denominational choir of 100 voices at the Million Man March 20th anniversary in 2015. The following year, Butler and Trinity released their second album, Make It, which debuted at number two on Billboard’s gospel albums chart. Additionally, Butler and Trinity have supported and/or performed with the likes of Shirley Caesar, Hezekiah Walker, and Kirk Franklin.
