On this page we'll tell you a little about the leader of the Tru-Tones, the legendary Carl Joseph.
 
      When America first started hearing about Carl Joseph in 1980, the reaction was disbelief.Born with only one leg, it's pretty hard to believe he  played football, basketball, & track. He not only played, but was captain of his football team & made All American. He high jumped 5ft 10in, slam dunked basketballs, and ran over anybody who tried to block him on the football field, all done without his prosthesis. It was so incredible that, Carl was on the t.v show (That's Incredible). Carl Joseph was also on the shows:NBC with Bob Trumpy, To Tell The Truth, Kids are people too, and The Today Show. The National Enquirer was even on to his story. Carl Joseph's life as a teenager was so amazing, Jeff Meyers (A sports columnist) wrote a book on Carl called "One of a Kind-The Legend of Carl Joseph"
  After attending Pittsburg, Carl attended Bethune Cookman College and later became a coach for BCC. He always loved music, so after being apart of many choirs, Eric Farmer(Tru-Tone founder) asked his childhood friend Carl to join the group.  Joseph is one of the many ministers produced from the group. He was soon ordained as an Elder. Carl Joseph thanks God for his past accomplishehments (including his most cherished being The Philadelphia Sports Writers 1982 Most Courageous Athlete Award) but is very well focused on Christ, who he say "is my life". He said "My mama never felt sorry for me, and I never felt sorry for myself. Believe you can do it and Christ does the rest."
