The Story of Minister AL’GERON WRIGHT

Algeron Wright was born September 3,1982 in Bamberg S.C., and now resides in Swansea S.C. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Deacon Louis (Eartha) Wright. He is the middle child of six children and currently has two sisters-in-laws, four nephews and one niece with a large extended family.
Growing up Algeron was surrounded by music. His mother was a local singer and was a member and manager of the former group “The Spiritualletes.” This influenced him to begin singing with his mother and brother at an early age. Although he loved to sing songs for the Lord he was very bashful when it came to singing in public. It wasn’t until the seventh grade that Algeron scheduled himself to compete in a competition. Before competing Algeron told his advisor, Mrs. Gooden, that he was going to play the piano for the competition. She didn’t feel that his piano skills were developed enough for the competition, so she suggested that he sing instead. So, for the competition he decided to sing a song by the Mississippi Children’s Choir, “Yes There Is Hope.” As it got closer to the date of the competition Algeron decided to tell his mother about his decision and although she wasn’t quite sure that he was prepared or serious, she decided to attend. While discouraged by the other great talents in the competition Algeron’s mother told him these words “It’s the anointing that makes a difference”. Algeron performed and left the audience blown away and with watering eyes because of the great talent and anointing of this twelve year old boy who had just won the competition. That was where his love for music truly began. This also happened to be around the same time he decided to dedicate his life to Christ. Algeron wrote his first song at the age of fifteen. Shortly after that Al had his first studio time that was paid by his uncle, Izadore Wright. As the word got out about his talents Algeron was invited little by little to sing and assist many choirs and groups in the areas of Orangeburg, St. Matthews, Swansea and Columbia. Algeron has had the opportunity to sing and lead the Fellowship Choir under the leadership of Bishop Wiley Jackson in Atlanta, Georgia. His first year participating in The Fellowship Choir opened up tremendous doors for him. During this time he was given the opportunity to lead an original piece that was composed by one of the fellowship pastors. The second year he led praise and worship at one of the services. That same year at a conference Algeron was given the chance to meet and see several Gospel artist. There, he sung under the direction of the gifted, B. Chase Williams. The following year he was blessed enough to sing under the musical talents of the anointed Shay Norman. Along with his own talents Algeron comes from a very anointed and talented family. He has several family members in the music industry, starting with the previous Air Gospel Recording artists “The Five Singing Sons” who happened to be his cousins. Algeron is also the cousin of EMI recording artist, Reverend Darrel McFadden, lead singer of The Disciples. The WFMV 95.3 FM’s very own parade of quartet and lead singer of the C Young singers, Rev. Curtis Young is another member of this anointed family. Algeron’s very own grandfather, the late Rev. Charlie Young, was known for his music ministry in New York and South Carolina. His group was named “Reverend Charlie Young and the Morning Glories. This group also consisted of his aunts and cousins. With his father as his biggest critic, his criticism is what keeps Algeron in line when it comes to his professional career in music. Although his father is not musically inclined he is the first to give a thumbs up or thumbs down to a performance. Algeron uses this as his strength. Especially following the loss of his brother to gun violence in 2003, which put him through the hardest time of his life. Algeron and his family put their faith in God and gained the strength to move on. Algeron is now a singer; songwriter, preacher and musician who loves to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. He was also featured with many choirs in the area and is a sought after musician and singer in the community. This humble young man continues to be respectful at Choir and Group events, which is what has given him the opportunities that have been presented to him so far. Algeron has a love for gospel of all types and is also known for singing at weddings, which require him to sing some love/secular songs, which he also appreciates. He has always had the desire to teach elementary school but at this point in his life music is where his heart is. Nevertheless Algeron’s love will always be with the spreading of the good news of Jesus Christ.
