Martin conducted the choir until 2006 and during that time TRS presented a wide range of material, including gospel, blues, jazz, swing, pop standards and original compositions. TRS established an enviable record of successful performances at music festivals, major public events and many concerts and recitals, both public and private. TRS continues and more information can be found at: www.therealsing.org.au

Together they conceived the idea of building a large interfaith community-based choir similar to the choir he from conducts in Australia, to help in the rebuilding process in Louisiana.Martin put together a team of international specialists (from America, Australia and Canada) with local community members, singers, musicians and volunteers to coordinate the choir. The Hurricane choir, which consisted of 250 members plus a band, gave three multi-media performances that were held on June 2nd, 3rd and June 4th 2006 at Jefferson Baptist Church, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
