As a young man Troy Sneed always had a love for music, and after serving as the director of the Florida A&M University (FAMU) Gospel Choir, he was presented the first opportunity to hone his musical talents in the industry in the capacity of Assistant Minister of Music for the Georgia Mass Choir, under the tutelage of the renowned Reverend Milton Biggham.

In the fall of 1998 a new course was sparked as Savoy recorded and Georgia Mass presented a 400 voice youth choir entitled “Youth for Christ” which was directed and produced by Troy. This audio and video recording, appropriately entitled “Higher” garnered the project a nomination for the 43rd Annual Grammy “Choir of the Year” Award.
