Montrell Darrett is a gospel music singer and a former member of the award-winning gospel performing group Commissioned.

Darrett was raised in a family of six children, all of whom sang. He performed with his siblings as The True Notes and worked locally in Nashville. As a teenager he recorded several singles.

While serving in the Navy, Darrett dedicated his life to Christianity and became a minister at age 24. After returning from the war in the Persian Gulf, he suffered bouts of depression and attempted suicide.[1] Following this he decided his ministry would be achieved through music, and he joined the group Commissioned.

In 1999 Darrett released a solo album, Chronicles of the Soul. The album hit #23 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart.[2]
