WHO IS E-SENTT Carlton “E-Sentt” Thomas aka Minister Tommy CCT / Tommy CCT is an Akademia award-winning singer/songwriter, record producer, and fashion designer. His Early Life Carlton Thomas was born in Howell’s Content Clarendon, Jamaica He went to Denbigh Secondary school, now Denbigh High. His mother Cordilla White and father Wilford George Thomas are of Cuban ancestry. HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY E-Sentt started singing at a very young age, from the day he learned to talk. He and his brother Wilford used to play at community sound clashes (musical competitions where crew members showcased their skills against each other), whenever they got the chance to do so. People from the district would come to listen to them, and after their performances, they would choose the winner. As time progressed, they started singing at youth clubs, schools, and social gatherings. His brother Wilford was always doing solos. In 1973, E-Sentt formed a group called the “Third Generation “and became the lead singer. The name of the group was then changed to “The Improvers”. The Improvers performed in Jamaica, and worked with many famous artists, like Mighty Diamond, The Culture, Barbara Jones, Maytones, and the list goes on.GG Records was distributing the group’s hit song “Out where the Sun Shine'' which gets a lot of airplay all over Jamaica, and England. Unfortunately, many people are guilty of bootlegging this song. Well-known artists, Game-Changing and Frenchie King from England did some songs for them. One of the tracks entitled “Moving” went to #30 on top of the pot in England. Despite all these successes, the group derived nothing, and their pockets were empty while the pockets of others became full. As E-Sentt puts it, that's the life of a singer. E-Sentt released “Out Where The Sun Shine” https://youtu.be/gT5mf99rD6A and ” Moving” in 2020 https://youtu.be/V2C1ptSvP6k Personal Journey E -Sentt experienced many obstacles and because of the struggles he faced, in 1980 he got the opportunity to travel overseas and he migrated to Canada. He continued to practice his trade as a tailor and designer. E-Sentt is an awesome tailor and a talented designer with 46 years of experience. He started his business on Eglinton Ave West, at Oakwood Avenue, Canada, sewing for international artists. His store was called Tommy`s Fashions. At that time, he was the lead singer for a band in Canada when he met Prince Mohamed Aka George Nooks. The band he was singing with George Nooks. He was using the band for performing at nightclubs, along with Julie Spence, Nana Mclean, and other artists. E-Sentt loved the music but he gave up the band, due to financial challenges and focused on his tailoring and designing business. Even though he had something good going, the producers were not giving him the recognition he deserved. Changing Lifestyle (His New Journey) In 1995 E-Sentt was' ' born again’’. He became a new creation in Jesus Christ. He talks about his journey in the church where he has learned that the majority of sick people go to church to get well. Even though some will get healing and some will not. Many remain sick spiritually and physically because they lack the discerning spirit to identify persons who can guide them towards their “healing ground”. This can result in bad experiences. We have to be careful who we talk to when we are in need of healing. E- Sentt firmly believes that people have to know God for themselves, listen to his voice, and he will train them to be like him. Through the trials, you will get strength and inspiration. It was a journey, but he graduated with honor from God. He now knows to walk as a child of the King. In 2010, he released his first gospel album, entitled “Oh Why”. He goes by the name C.C. Thomas on that album. In 2012 he migrated to Houston Texas, USA. He released another album, entitled ‘Success” under the name Tommy CCT. The album was distributed by Tate Music Group. His third album entitled “You're Not Alone” under the name “Minister Tommy CCT '' was also released. E –Sentt believes he was not treated well. He did not get the publicity from Tate Music Group as he should have. They only lined their pockets leaving his pocket empty. He had similar bad experiences with Hit Man Record from LA and V-Pal Record. What is E-Sentt Doing Now E-Sentt has been writing songs as he gets his inspiration from God.
