Speaker Bio
Carlos Whittaker is a People's Choice Award winner, a former recording artist signed to a major label, a social media maven, and currently spends the majority of his time writing books and speaking on stages around the world. It really began when the Whittakers found their family in America's spotlight with appearances on shows like CBS Early Morning, The Today Show and more when their viral video "Single Ladies Devastation" went viral.

The release of "Moment Maker" marked Carlos' debut as an author, but his current book "Kill the Spider" has taken Carlos' tribe into the deeper parts of their souls. In his newest book Carlos helps people identify, locate, corner, and kill the spiders that are plaguing their lives. "My dad once told me that I must stop cleaning to cobwebs in my life and kill the spider", Carlos recalls. "This was a massive shift in my soul that began my journey towards being truly centered in my life."

Carlos and his wife Heather moved from California back to Atlanta where he joined the team at Andy Stanley's Buckhead Church. In 2009 Carlos signed a recording deal with Integrity Music and moved his family to Nashville where he decided to make the shift from writing music to writing books. And from singing on stages to speaking on stages.

It was actually only a week after he decided to stop pursuing a career in music and instead pursue a career as a speaker that he got his first call to speak. It was at the White House for the Easter Prayer Breakfast. "I went from singing in front of thousands to speaking in a room of about 50. One whom was the President of the United States. It seems the moment making thing is going to keep on going.” Currently Carlos is regularly teaching at churches and conferences worldwide, including Catalyst Conference, Embrace Church, FreshLife Church, and many more.
