In 2001, Terrell Sullivan, a.k.a.,Tru Soldier and Jamal Ingram a.k.a., The Professor formed the songwriting and production team known as The Phusion. Formerly members and Christian artists with the RP Hip-Hop Group, The Advocates of Unity or A.O.U out of Gaithersburg, Maryland, The Phusion shares a vision to create a genre of Hip-Hop music that will appeal to everyone including non-believers, urban born again believers, and the traditional church. First and foremost, the team uses Hip-Hop music as their musical style. In addition to Hip-Hop, they use cultural blends from Latin to Middle Eastern music, social issues and the elements of traditional praise and worship to minister to all people. The Phusion has minstered locally at George Mason University, Catholic University, International Human Rights Rally in Washington D.C., Hood College, Interdenominational Church of God, Church of the Redeemer, a coffeehouse called My Brothers's Place in Waldorf, MD, the Disciples of Christ Outreach Ministries, Evangel Catherdral Temple, Solid Rock Church, and several other local churches. The Phusion has also ministered in different areas of the country such as: Messiah College, Temple University, Club Feelize in Virginia Beach and Rochester, NY. In addition, they have been involved in Sound Tha" Alarm in Baltimore and Praise In Da Park MusiqFest in Virginia, which are both popular Christian music events. Along with radio interviews on the local gospel radio station, Heaven 1580, their music has been in rotation on various Gospel Hip-Hop radio shows across the country and around the world,including GospelTrax in Sand Springs,OK which airs the only "All Christian Hip-Hop Radio Show" in America. The Phusion is very interested in foreign and inner-city mission work and the Hip-Hop community, and they work very closely with The Christian Assests Network. With the lyrical content of their music they realize that there is a struggle within the Church when it comes to Hip-Hop versus Christian music but the team remains stedfast and believes that a heart committed to the daily Christian experience is what determines the values and the lifestyle of an artist.
