Trying to ID a Tree

Does anyone know what kind of tree this is? I have a bunch of them in my yard. In the spring they had white flowers (sorry, no photos), and honeybees were all over them. Now they have little berries that start off red and deepen into a luscious purple color. Just wondering what they might be.

Out of curiosity, I bit into one, and I haven't gotten sick or dropped dead, so whatever it is, it's not poisonous. It tasted a little sweet, a bit astringent, and it had a pit, kind of like a cherry.

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

*** Update ***

I've been told this is a black cherry. Cool!
