Ricky Atkinson and Compassion did a great job this morning in the Chapel Service at NQC.
Ricky was saved at the age of seven at Faith Baptist Church, where his dad was pastor, in Bishopville, SC. Ricky started singing with family as a young man and continued through the teen years. In 1987, he began his career in music by playing piano for a Lance Carpenter trio called The Campmeeting Trio, as they traveled and playing in many camp meetings across the south. In 1988, he started singing lead with his first group, The Camp meeting Boys. In 1991, he formed a male trio called Kindred Spirit. Ricky sang solo for two years from 1994 to 1996. In 1996, he joined the Wilburns from Carthage, TN. In 1999, Ricky returned to south Georgia to form Ricky Atkinson and Compassion. Ricky is most noted for being one of Gospel music’s top songwriters. Along with being a songwriter, he is also producer, arranger, publisher and president of two recording labels for Resting Place Music. Ricky sings lead and is the group manager.
Here’s a clip from this morning:

Mark Dubbeld Family To Release “LIVE Nothing But Praise” DVD
(Pigeon Forge, TN) The Mark Dubbeld Family announces release of their first DVD recording, “LIVE Nothing But Praise” as part of the National Quartet Convention this week in Pigeon Forge, TN.
The project features songs that have been ranked on Southern Gospel charts. The Mark Dubbeld Family preforms songs, “Nothing But Praise”, “A Little Bit Better”, “Inside The Gate” as well as other songs from their most recent recording. The DVD was produced during an evening of celebration that was marked with an incredible sense of God’s Presence.
Mark states “We were blessed to have such talented Producers and Engineers for this special night of celebrating our 5 years of being full time in gospel music. We are grateful for the Lord’s faithfulness as we follow His call.”
The event was recorded in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Roanoke, VA. The Beautiful House of Prayer Sanctuary hosted the evening while produced by Mark Hale from Harvest Studios, Video Ventures and Star Worx Productions Producer Jeremy Peace.
During the taping, Mark and Janene share personal interviews with “road stories,” as well as interesting incidents. One such story is the inspiration for composing, “Church by the Cotton Field.”
The DVD will be formally released, September 27, at Booth #260, National Quartet Convention, in Pigeon Forge, TN.
