Written by SGN Scoops Staff on July 23, 2020 – 9:52 am -

It’s July and I’m sure you are sitting out in your backyard, or on the beach, and enjoying the summer heat and the sunshine. Or you are sitting in the shade and drinking a cold lemonade. Either way, I hope you have time to peruse the entire issue of the SGN Scoops July 2020 magazine. We have so much for you to enjoy!
First off, we have a cover story of one of the Crabb Family. Adam Crabb is a soloist, as well as being a member of the Gaither Vocal Band. As you read about his life, I hope you see Adam’s big beautiful heart, which has been made and moulded by God.
We have so many other great artists that we also are highlighting in this issue, including the great Guy Penrod, the top-notch Jerry Sally, and those Christian Country artists with the comedic flair, Sunday Drive. Be sure you don’t miss the stories on Dallas Rogers, Beyond Grace, and Mary Burke. All of this, plus the DJ Spotlight, the Publishers Point, the SGNScoops charts, and the new release reviews. And there’s even more, so be sure not to miss one page.
Special thanks to all of our wonderful writers, creative/design staff, and editorial group for the hard work and time commitment that you give to SGN Scoops every month. You are so appreciated!
The main thing we hope that you read in this month’s issue, is the artists’ commitment to the Lord, their heart for ministry, and their ability to communicate what God has done in their life. If you are unable to see what God has done in your life, feel free to email me. Let’s chat about faith! My email address is lorraine@sgnscoops.com

Heart2Heart Releases New Lyric Video for “Happy Glad Day”

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on August 13, 2020 – 11:45 am -

Heart2Heart Releases New Lyric Video for “Happy Glad Day”

Heart2Heart Releases New Lyric Video for “Happy Glad Day”

Cherryville, NC  –  Popular North Carolina Trio, Heart2Heart have announced the exclusive premier and release of their new lyric video Happy Glad Day, a single from their newest album, Pray, currently being featured on Singing News.

 

This upbeat and encouraging song was written by Southern Gospel legend, Reba Faye Rambo and Tery W Wilkins, and is impeccably mastered by the talented trio. Heart2Heart’s harmony blend delivers this song in a way that is both classic and fresh, and invites the listener to shed the cares of today and celebrate our heavenly home that awaits.

 

The performance video for Happy Glad Day was filmed at The Historic Savannah Theater in Savannah GA, as part of the Great American Gospel Series that will be coming out later this fall.

 

The single was originally released to radio in March, but given the popularity of the song — it is currently at Number 25 on the Singing News Radio Chart — Heart2Heart knew it’s encouraging message needed to be released to an even broader audience. They approached Kingdom Artists Media, who produced the video in conjunction with AG Publicity.

 

Of the song and the video, Heart2Heart’s David Kiser says “What a joy to release the single “Happy Glad Day” in the midst of such times as we are seeing today. It is filled with encouraging thoughts of God’s promises. Thoughts of heaven and a happy eternity. What a fun song to sing and deliver. We pray its message helps to make it a Happy Glad Day for all gospel music fans and radio listeners alike.”

 

The video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/i1IXSm02hqk

Heart2Heart was recently honored with a Top 10 nomination for Favorite New Artist in one of Southern Gospel’s most prestigious awards, the Singing News Fan Awards.

If you would like to interview Heart2Heart contact AG Publicity at info@agpublicity.com.

The 3 Heath Brothers encourage giving burdens to Jesus with new single

Written by Staff on August 10, 2020 – 7:48 am -

3 Heath BrothersArden, North Carolina (August 6, 2020) — As part of the next generation of gospel music artists, the 3 Heath Brothers (website HERE) have quickly captured attention with their powerful voices and unmistakable calling to spread God’s word. The trio records music they believe in, with words they hope others carry through daily life, giving encouragement and hope.

With their latest single, the timely “Give It To Jesus,” the 3 Heath Brothers continue this mission, reminding listeners that when life is tough, they can give all their burdens and chaos to Jesus.

Nicholas Heath, who wrote the song, says at the time, he didn’t realize how relevant it would become. “It is a song that has almost become our theme song during this time when there are so many questions and not many answers,” says Nicholas. “No matter what any of us are going through or dealing with and no matter how we’ve been hurt or our questions…the safest and best thing we can always do is give it to Jesus.”

The moving song is the latest single from the trio’s Horizon Records debut album Who We Are, which showcases the brothers’ creative arrangements, song choice and production, making an impressive statement about their music, mission and beliefs.

Stream “Give It To Jesus” HERE.

About 3 Heath Brothers
The 3 Heath Brothers are teenagers, Nicholas, Clayton, & Christian Heath from Thomasville, NC. They have been singing together as long as they can remember. Their mom taught them to sing parts from a very early age and their dad is the Senior Pastor at Faith Community Chapel in Thomasville, NC.

When these young guys get up to sing, people are consistently shocked by their tight harmony, powerful vocals, and a cappella arrangements. In the summer of 2018, they won the Grand Champion Trophy at the NC State Annual Singing Convention. They recently performed at Dollywood, Billy Graham Training Center at the Cove, and are Main Stage artists at Singing in the Sun 2019 and the Gatlinburg Gathering 2019.

Audiences won’t want to miss their young energy and passion for God. They love God and their goal is to promote Christ and demonstrate that you are never too young to give all you have to God.

Selena Day: Don’t waste your suffering

Written by Staff on August 8, 2020 – 11:06 am -

Selena Day

Selena Day

I don’t know about those of you who are reading this, but for me, I have been banging my head against the proverbial wall in my brain.It is so easy to get lost in the vortex of opinions, debates, and agendas swirling in the world today. The past few months have put pressure on all of us.

Now, more than ever, we need to come together in unity and pray.  Pray for our country and our leaders, pray for our world, pray for our families, pray for our ministries and ministers.

Turn off the television, the internet, and spend time lifting each other up.

This morning, I awoke a little before 5:00 a.m., and once again, I felt God gently calling me downstairs to spend time with him. I don’t say this in pride, but in humility, because I have been battling with Papa God about these early morning moments. I would rather be sleeping, or I haven’t seen the desired results from our time together. Don’t get me wrong, I love and am grateful for every moment we spend together, but I am also very transparent and real with God.

I give you this glimpse into my soul, so you will know what I am writing here isn’t just for you the reader, it is also me preaching to myself.  

We entered this year with grand declarations. 2020: a year of double portion; 2020: a year of great vision. Then 2020 decided to hit us head-on, and we began crumbling.  

The best thing about this year is that it has shaken us deeply.  Scripture tells us in Hebrews 12 that what can be shaken will be shaken, and only that which is of God will remain. 

This year has agitated and rubbed us raw. This morning as I read my devotion, I loved what the writer wrote: “A pearl is the only gem that has the ability to absorb and reflect. That is why the scripture sometimes refers to the kingdom of heaven being like a merchant.  Jesus goes out and sells everything He has to purchase the pearl of great price. It is imperative to understand that, if you are going to be looking for pearls, you have to go into the sea of humanity, and there you find pearls in oysters.  Unfortunately, every oyster does not produce a pearl. Only those that have spent their existence being irritated will become pearls. Their suffering has formed a substance inside of them that makes them precious. Do not waste your suffering and your sorrow…”

All oysters reside in the sea, and they all bump along the sand, but just a few will open enough to allow a piece of sand to enter and not regurgitate it back out. Only a few press into the uncomfortable and pain that the sand causes to produce pearls.

‘Do not waste your suffering!’ That phrase jumped from the pages of my devotions. Where has your heart been during this season of chaos and confusion? Have you wasted your suffering? 

My heart has been leaning into God, but I have so many questions. I have squirmed and tried so very hard to displace the sand agitating me.

This morning as I write this, I am making a decision to change my focus back to the beginning of the year. I will proclaim that 2020 is the year of double portion and that all circumstances work for my good, because I know to whom I belong.  

Our words have power, so when believers speak gloom and doom when the world seems to be going in a negative direction, it can be devastating.

Proverbs 18:21 (GNV) “What you say can preserve life or destroy it, so you must accept the consequences of your words.” 

As the bride of Christ, we need to be as the woman from Proverbs 31:  “Even in the night (dark) season she arises and set food on the table for the hungry ones in her house and for others.” 

In this dark season, let us begin to set the table for those hungry to find meaning by speaking positive words of life. Christ has given us the keys to the kingdom, now let us rise up and use them.  

We need to filter our circumstances by the purification of scripture: whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report. Let us meditate on anything that is of virtue and anything praiseworthy. 

When we begin to practice the aforementioned, we will discover love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness and faithfulness reigning in our lives.  

Today, let us focus on the best parts of 2020, and begin to pronounce that this year will be a year of great opportunity for the message of Christ. That will be my message for those around me. 

It may mean that when others around you are in fear of illness, you proclaim that, “No weapon formed against me will prosper.” It may mean that when you see someone die from illness, you declare that, “Everything works for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose.” It may mean that you just sit with those who are hurting in this world and not give any advice, but only show your love and friendship to others in action and not with Christianize words.  

Remember to whom we belong and remember the message that has been spoken to you in your life. Great opportunity comes from adversity. I believe that greatness is coming out of 2020 and that our best days are ahead.

Weekend Word With Vonda Armstrong

Written by scoopsnews on August 8, 2020 – 8:41 am -

Vonda Armstrong

Hello Everyone! Hope you had a great week. Have you had an opportunity to speak words of life into someone this week? I would have to say that I have failed at it this week, but I had a friend speak words of love, hope, and kindness into me and it truly changed my week.
My Mother is in a nursing home facility in my hometown of Heflin, Alabama,  and the dreaded virus made its way there. I let fear overtake my thoughts and really just made myself miserable.  I should have been trusting Jesus I know, but the human came out and it could have ruined my entire week, but God.

1 Peter 3:10 says

For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile.

The Bible teaches us that the tongue is very powerful.

I asked myself, “Vonda, what kind of words are you speaking?”  I prayed and asked God to give me words of life to speak.

John 6:68 · Then Simon Peter answered him · Lord; · to whom shall we go? · thou hast the words of eternal life

That scripture jumped out at me! We, as Christians have the words of Eternal Life , no matter what comes our way!

Dear Jesus,

I pray today for the person reading this. I pray that you will give them words of life. Someone is Dying to hear them.
In Jesus name,

Amen

A Note From Sheri Easter….

Written by scoopsnews on August 8, 2020 – 4:34 am -

On July 19, three weeks ago, Jeff and I and our group were exposed to someone with Covid.

We were socially distanced, doing everything we were supposed to do. Later that week, we started having mild symptoms similar to allergies and began treatment. Morgan decided to test, to be safe for Ryman, and tested positive. Jeff and I tested and, because of a delay in test results, we haven’t shared this with anyone, as we were waiting to hear and our greatest concern was for others. We have all passed the 14 day period and now are on the back side of it.

Thank you to the promoters/audiences this week for your understanding. See you real soon!
