Gospel Choir Director


Atreyu R. Singleton

Born to Warren and Christine Singleton, Atreyu (affectionately known as Trey), along with his 9 siblings, grew up in a home full of love, laughter and music. He began his musical studies at the tender age of 8 years old, when his eldest brother taught him a song on the keyboard and he was able to play by ear. As his musical interest developed, he began to play the drums, the piano, the clarinet, and the organ. By the age of 13, Atreyu was the organist for a youth choir and later became the keyboardist for his high school gospel choir at Wilson Magnet High School in Rochester, NY as well as participating in various community events.

Atreyu was surrounded by musicians having grown up in a Pentecostal church deeply embedded with traditional and contemporary gospel. He had many opportunities accompanying the regional mass choir, youth choir and serving as the Musical Director for services and events. In 2005, Atreyu was afforded the opportunity to accompany the Monroe Community College Gospel choir as they opened a concert for national recording artist Tye Tribbett & G.A. In 2008, Atreyu moved to Ithaca, NY where he served as the Organist under the pastorship and mentoring of his father-in-law, Bishop Darrell Barrett until his passing in 2012. It was during this period that Atreyu relocated to Williamsport, PA with his wife Darlise and son Asa. Atreyu currently serves as the Minister of Music at Christ Community Worship Center where his pastor is Marwin C. Reeves Jr., (the former director of BUGC for over 8 years). In 2013, Atreyu formally accepted the position as the Director of the Bloomsburg University Gospel Choir where he enjoys spending time with the students to teach songs reflective of his love for God and fostering a love for praise and worship in the lives he encounters.
