From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Terry Blackwood is a contemporary Christian musician who is best known as lead singer for Christian pop act The Imperials. He was with the group for nearly a decade, joining in 1967 and remaining with them through 1976. At that time, he left the group along with fellow Imperial Sherman Andrus to form Andrus, Blackwood and Company, one of the only racially integrated groups in contemporary Christian music at the time. They recorded 6 albums together between 1977 and 1986.


Terry Blackwood is the son of Doyle Blackwood, original co-founder of the Blackwood Brothers Qt. Terry's distinctive vocal styling has been featured on many chart topping singles while associated with two highly acclaimed vocal groups, The Imperials and Andrus, Blackwood & Co. He was a featured soloist on many Gaither Homecoming videos.

Terry is performing with the Imperials in the US and around the world. Their association with Elvis Presley opened many doors for them to sing their gospel songs and they are being received very well. They released a six-song sampler entitled Gospel Ship. He released five digitally re-mastered albums of Andrus, Blackwood & Co. Soldier Of The Light, Step Out Of The Night, ABC Live, Grand Opening, and Following You, nominated for a Grammy award in 1978.
