Through divine inspiration Edward Baltrip organized the Voices of Fulfillment Community Choir. The original membership numbered thirteen youth and young adults; all wanting to sing as a ray of hope reflecting the enrichment and “Fulfillment” of their lives through Christ. This choir, under the leadership of Min. Baltrip, with the help of community businesses and spiritual advisors achieved the goal to pull at-risk youth from the streets preventing their involvement with gang violence and drug addiction. In addition, due to philosophical controversies [at that time], The Voices of Fulfillment helped to “bridge the gap” between churches and denominations. Because of the powerful impact of this ministry, this in fact helped to ignite a spirit of unity among churches and church leaders throughout the County of San Diego. What was set as a foundation has now become a musical legacy and gospel tradition for over 30 years.
Throughout the years, Eddie Baltrip & Fulfillment have ministered on various stages at filled venues with capacities from 25 to 8,000. They have traveled nationally to such places as New York, Washington DC, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Chicago, India New Orleans, Fresno, Los Angeles, Oakland, Anaheim, Utah, Arizona, Ohio, Seattle and internationally to Paris, France. They have opened for and shared the stage with such renowned artists and producers as; Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Donald Lawrence, Mary Mary, Donnie McClurkin, Yolanda Adams, Shirley Caesar, Edwin Hawkins, Tramaine Hawkins, Mighty Clouds of Joy, The Clark Sisters, Karen Clark-Sheard, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Kim Burrell,
