“SOS” consists of six members, Carol Kirby-Green, Karen Kirby, Sharron Sales, Troy Bell, Terra Leavell and Angela Tellis. Their music mainly features a variety of traditional African-American gospel music.

Kirby-Green, Kirby and Sales had been singing together since high school. However, they weren’t officially given a title until their choir director at St. Stephens Church decided to give them the nickname “SOS” meaning “Same ‘Ol Soloist.”

Later in 2006 “SOS” realized they needed a few more potential singers in order to ensure the success of the group. Therefore, Bell, Leavell and Tellis were added to the group. They became a vocal ensemble for Simmons College of Kentucky.

Since then, the group has been performing for various audiences sharing the love and hope of Jesus Christ to all. They feel truly blessed to be able to give God glory and honor and praise through their music.
