(Johnson City, TN)… One of the most unmistakable voices to ever step onto a concert stage is Grammy winning recording artist, David Phelps. Once a childhood musical prodigy from Tomball, TX, Phelps earned a bachelor’s degree in music from Baylor University. Since then, he has become a nationally celebrated vocalist, whose gifts and talents are matched by none. Perhaps best known as the powerful tenor for the multiple Grammy and Dove Award-winning Gaither Vocal Band, a group he traveled with for nearly two decades, Phelps is constantly building on a career that has already been groundbreaking. Emerging as a leading voice in Christian music, Phelps has been winning the hearts of audiences all over the world for more than two decades. He has performed at numerous prestigious venues across the globe, including the White House, New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Sydney Opera House in Australia. His electrifying voice has moved audiences from all walks of life, crossing generational and stylistic barriers.

Over the years, Phelps has shared the stage with many of the most elite singers and musicians to ever grace a concert stage. In January and February of 2018, Phelps will team with three of music’s talented vocalists as he partners with popular musical trio, Cana’s Voice to present The Big Voice Tour. This event is expected to attract listeners of all ages, as it will be a night the entire family will enjoy, regardless of stylistic preferences.

Comprised of iconic Gospel singers, Jody McBrayer (formerly of Avalon), TaRanda Greene (formerly of The Greenes) and Doug Anderson (formerly of Signature Sound), Cana’s Voice is quickly capturing the attention of music lovers from varying genres. In 2016, the trio released their very first recording, “This Changes Everything,” which has appeared in Soundscans’ Top 20 Sales for Inspirational recordings since its release. The group has been featured at numerous events with several of the nation’s most well known pastors, including Dr David Jeremiah, John Hagee and Jim Cymbala. Additionally the group performed for the National Day of Prayer in Washington, DC.

IMC Concerts will serve as promoter of The Big Voice Tour and will be offering General Admission Seating, as well as Artist Circle Seating and a variety of Family Packages, in addition to VIP tickets, allowing concert attendees early admittance, preferred seating, a private exclusive Meet and Greet session and a souvenir autographed tour lanyard. “We are extremely excited about the vocal combinations that will be featured on The Big Voice Tour,” states IMC President, Landon Beene.  “Each night will feature the most talented voices to ever take a platform. This will be an evening any music lover will appreciate and absolutely love.”

Many of the songs featured on The Big Voice Tour are included on Phelps’ Hymnal recording, which showcases masterful vocals and lush arrangements of such cherished gems as “Amazing Grace,” “How Great Thou Art,” “Victory In Jesus” and “It Is Well With My Soul.” Each song takes the listener on a journey of inspiration and worship in song.

David Staton – Thankful for the Miracle and the Promise

Written by Staff on December 4, 2017 – 5:16 am -

David Staton

David Staton

This has been a year of gratitude for our family. I’ll be honest … it has been one of the toughest years of our lives. There have been days when I have felt totally forsaken. I cried out to God, asking Him to let me know that He was even there.

But every now and then, God just hits you in the face with the reality that His word is true and that He is faithful to every promise. With every miracle, there is a promise. We want the miracles. We pray and pray for the miracle, but if we aren’t careful, we will miss the promise.

When I was younger, I was singing with my family. We had been asked to sing in Greece. We sang and stayed at the U.S. Embassy in Athens, Greece. We had military escorts everywhere we went. It was the first time we had ever heard of a car bomb or a roadside bombing.

David Staton and family

David Staton and family

We only had one day with no performances, so our military guide, who happened to be a Christian, asked if we would like to see some sights. He took us out in the middle of nowhere and told us that our first stop would be the ancient city of Philippi. There is much written to and about this city by the apostle Paul.

One of the most recognized accounts is in Acts 16, where Paul and Silas were thrown in prison. At midnight, they began singing praise to God when an earthquake shook the prison and freed all of the prisoners. When I looked in that innermost cell, I was shocked to see the shackles still hanging on the walls. I still get goose bumps when I think about it.

After the prisoners were set free from the earthquake, the jailer asked Paul and Silas how he could be saved. They answered him and said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved – and your household.” How did Paul and Silas know that the jailer’s family would be saved? It’s simple really. They knew what many husbands and dads need to hear today, which is this … your family will follow you wherever you lead them. It may not always feel like they are following, but trust me … wherever you end up is where they will end up. Whether it is a rehab facility, skid row, or the cross, they will follow you there.

Through most of 2017 when I didn’t feel like God was anywhere to be found, my youngest daughter Katherine, age 10, prayed and asked the spirit to come into her heart as she chose to follow Christ. Last month, I had the privilege to help baptize her. Katherine was the last of my kids to choose to follow the Lord. It was the fulfillment of the promise in Acts 16, “… and your household.”

While I was praying for miracles, wondering where God was, He was faithfully fulfilling His promise in my life. If you focus on the miracles, you’ll miss the promise and faithfulness of God. Give thanks.
David Staton

Joseph Habedank Receives First GRAMMY® Nomination

Written by Staff on December 2, 2017 – 6:37 pm -

Joseph Habedank Receives First GRAMMY® Nomination

Joseph Habedank Receives First GRAMMY® Nomination

Nashville, TN (December 1, 2017) – Singer/songwriter Joseph Habedank is capping off a stellar year with his first-ever GRAMMY® nomination. Nominees for the 60th GRAMMY® Awards were announced earlier this week, with Habedank’s 2017 release, Resurrection, appearing in the Best Gospel Roots Album category.

Resurrection, produced by Wayne Haun, is Habedank’s sophmore studio release on Daywind Records, and received the 2017 GMA Dove Award for Southern Gospel Album of the Year earlier this year. The project features the chart-topping single, ‘Here He Comes,’ as well as nine other new songs co-written by Habedank with acclaimed songwriters such as Michael Farren, Tony Wood, Jimmy Yeary, and Lee Black, among others.

Named by Singing News as the 2017 Soloist of the Year, Joseph Habedank has appeared on stage this year alongside the legendary Reba McEntire at the GMA Dove Awards, as well as on the Ryman and Grand Ole Opry stage with Opry members Dailey & Vincent.

“I am so overwhelmed with gratitude for everyone who had a part in this record,” says Joseph Habedank. “Thank you to Daywind Records, my producer, Wayne Haun, all of my co-writers; Tony Wood, Chris Cron, Michael Farren, Wayne Haun, Lee Black, Megan Mulnix, Joel Lindsey, Jimmy Yeary, Kenna West, Benji Cowart and Krissy Nordhoff. The studio musicians, Mark Hill, Jonathan Brown, Dave Cleveland, Scott Williamson, Joel Key and the Nashville String Machine. I am so incredibly thankful for this amazing honor.”

The 60th annual GRAMMY® Awards will be held at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday, January 28th, 2018. The award show will be aired at 7:30 PM ET on CBS Television Network.

Resurrection is Habedank’s second studio project on Daywind Records, following the highly anticipated debut, Welcome Home. While the lyrics of Welcome Home speak of redemption and second chances, Resurrection triumphantly sings victory over sin, death and the devil through Christ. Acclaimed songwriters such as Lee Black, Tony Wood, Chris Cron, Gerald Crabb, Jimmy Yeary, Michael Farren, Wayne Haun and Joel Lindsey, among others, teamed up with Habedank to craft ten brand new songs, including the first radio single, ‘Here He Comes.’ Much like Welcome Home, Resurrection covers a range of musical styles, from the current radio single ‘Just When You Thought,’ to the southern rock-infused ‘Jailbreak’ and gospel inspired ‘I Believe In The Resurrection.’

Resurrection is available to through New Day Christian. Mainstream and digital distribution are provided by Sony RED.
