Like most 9-year old boys, Terell wasn't too fond of getting his hair cut.
One particular cut proved fateful, though, and opened up the world of music to Terell because a Newark producer happened to be listening as he spun around in his barbershop chair.
Today Terell has worked with some of the best including Hi-Five, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston.
Terell completed his first solo release, "Love of a Lifetime," in 2001 and expects to release a new recording in June 2004.
Over the course of his life, Terell matured from his younger persona, "Little Anthony Carr," to the suave R&B Performer he's become today.
Terell started as a small boy growing up in Newark that moved to the suburbs of Central Jersey. He never played at the Stone Point in Asbury Park for exposure like Jersey legend Bruce Springstein did - rather, his talents developed through participation in varied vocal groups.
His "resume" includes groups from his church choir to the American Boys Chorus and Newark Boys Chorus, with which he performed in the Czech Republic before he was a teenager. He even took the time to help his childhood friends learn to dance for their neighbors at yearly block parties.
When Terell transferred to Monroe Township High School in the 9th Grade, he became only the second person in school history to be accepted immediately to its perennially award-winning concert choir. He wooed judges in Boston with his solo performance of Paul McCartney's "Yesterday."
As Terell went from group to group, honing his vocal talents, someone noticed. While in middle school, he signed on with Whitney Houston. He had the experience of a lifetime, touring with her and husband Bobby Brown for a summer.
After leaving Houston's label, Better Place Records, in 1998 to pursue a Bachelors of Art degree in Marketing from Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island, Terell found himself shuttling back and forth between Providence and New Jersey on Amtrak. When he wasn't studying, he was recording.
That hard work paid off - R&B fans around the world cheered "Love of a Lifetime," which was produced by DAT Boyz Entertainment. Track 3, "Havin' 'u 'Round" will be featured on Project Gotham Racing 2, a game for the Microsoft xBox.
He admits to being a perfectionist.
"I usually re write and rewrite until I record,' Terell said. "If you look at my papers they're all scribbles."
Romance again will dominate Terell's melodic lyrical in his planned second release. He wrapped tracks Are U Ready, Look Wut U've Done, and Better Off Gone in late June 2003.
"That's something everyone experiences," Terell said. "It's easier to write about because it's easier for others to relate too."
