He's also been a guest lead singer for the Wanita Carter Quartet, winners of the 1987 First Annual Youth Gospel Talent Show in Los Angeles. For two years, Barron sang and assisted in arranging background vocals in a quartet which included Chant Moore. Barron also lent his voice on four albums including 11 selections for the live recording album project entitled Shades of Gospel (not available through Chapel), which included his first solo selection, We Need a Word From the Lord.""

He has been blessed to share the stage with many gospel artists such as the late James Cleveland, Larnell Harris, Daryl Coley, Take 6, Richard Smallwood Singers, Brian McKnight, Shirley Caesar, ""Little Richard,"" Walter Hawkins and the Family, Tramaine Hawkins, Mervyn Warren, and Clifton Davis.

Barron preaches "we can accomplish and overcome all things through Christ who strengthens us if we just keep pressing on toward the mark of what the Lord has called us to do." This conviction inspired the production of Barron's new album, Pressin On.
