NASHVILLE, Tenn.— Guy Penrod, one of Gospel Music’s most awarded and best-loved vocalists, will be bringing his signature live performance experience to viewers around the globe June 21 as his “Concert On The Couch—A Father’s Day Celebration From Franklin Theatre” premiers for one-time online viewing at 7:00 pm Eastern Time. Virtual doors will open at 6:00 pm Eastern Time with special pre-show content.

Exclusive online viewing passes, available for a suggested donation of $5, can be reserved beginning tomorrow by registering at guypenrod.com.

“The last few months have been a challenging time for us all,” says Penrod. “I couldn’t think of a better way to reconnect with so many friends around the world than spending Father’s Day evening together. Just a few weeks ago, we filmed a memorable night of hymns, worship songs, and many of my favorites at the historic Franklin Theatre not far from my home. It is my prayer that hearts will be lifted and encouraged as we share a special time of song, laughter and celebration.”

“My heart goes out to so many who are suffering and enduring hardship during this season,” Penrod continues. “This is a way we can give back. Folks can register and kick back for a great night of music for just a $5 donation, or whatever they’d like to give. So, come join us on Father’s Day—we’ll just miss getting to hug your neck after the show.”

Featuring an all-star band, Penrod’s “Concert On The Couch” will include many classic songs of faith, including “Nothing But The Blood,” “I Surrender All” and “Leaning On The Everlasting Arms.” In addition, Penrod will revisit such concert favorites as “Pray About Everything” and “The Baptism of Jesse Taylor,” among others.

A member of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame (Gaither Vocal Band) and Texas Gospel Music Hall of Fame, Guy Penrod has performed at leading venues around the world, including The Grand Ole Opry House, Carnegie Hall and The Sydney Opera House, as well as appearing at CMA Music Fest and the 2017 Presidential Inauguration. With career sales of more than 4 million—including the Platinum-selling long-form video The Best of Guy Penrod—his recordings have set a standard for Gospel Music and consistently top Billboard sales charts.

Cancellation Of Alabama Quartet Convention Announced

Alabama Quartet Convention Announces Changes

Alabama’s Largest Southern Gospel Gathering

Mobile, Alabama, June 2, 2020 — Scott Washam and Amy Dunnam, co-founders of The Alabama Quartet Convention announce the cancellation of the 2020 ALQC. The ALQC is the largest 3-day Southern Gospel event in the state of Alabama. No matter if you are a participating artist, a fan that attends the event or just someone who knows about the event through word of mouth, it’s easy to see that the ALQC has become the trend setter for conventions not only regionally but nationally as well. Our idea has always been keeping the artists who attend top priority.

 

After discussions with Pastor Daniel Blaylock and Council of Forest Hill Church of God in Mobile, AL, along with discussions from our the ALQC Advisory Board, all parties involved resolved it best to cancel the event. The health and safety of our participants, fans, volunteers, and most of all – our community is the top priority of the ALQC organization. No matter what your what your affiliation with the ALQC, you are important to us. Without you, there would be no event.

 

The ALQC would like to thank the staff of Forest Hill Church of God. They have been ever gracious to us the last 5 years, and we look forward to a long-lasting relationship with them for many years to come. We also thank our 2020 ALQC Advisory Board – Cami Shrock, Greg Sullivan, Wanda Epps Kanipe for the service they have given to the ALQC this year. Lastly, we want to thank all the small businesses that have supported The ALQC for years. We could not do what we do without you all.

 

This is definitely not a ‘good-bye’ for the ALQC; it’s a ‘see ya later’ for the ALQC. As we navigate the next weeks and months, we will be making announcements on upcoming exciting events.

 

We’ve still got a song!

Jackson Heights Score Top 10 Hit Song

Written by Staff on June 2, 2020 – 2:53 pm -

Jackson Heights Score Top 10 Hit SongNashville, Tennessee — Cross-over artist Jackson Heights latest single, “Riding the Wind” has landed at #7 in the June radio chart for SGN Scoops magazine. “As radio stations across the nation have started playing Jackson Heights music, they are finding that their listeners love these guys. There is no other group like them on radio,” stated Matt Felts, Gateway Management.

For several years, Jackson Heights was the best kept secret in Gospel Music, artists loved their music, but few fans knew about the group. That has all changed in the last year. With years of Gospel music heritage to their credit, Jackson Heights has carved out their own path with an incredible sound that connects to fans of many genres of music. “As their music has reached people through radio and their live concerts, the word has gotten out. These guys are incredible. Not only are they incredible singers but they are all top musicians and play all their own music live. Not many groups on the road can claim that,” added Felts.

Jackson Heights Score Top 10 Hit SongJackson Heights will be resuming their tour schedule in June of 2020. To connect with the band, go to JacksonHeightsMusic.com.

The Promise Adds Two New Members

The Promise Adds Two New Members

The Promise Adds Two New Members

The Promise, in partnership with Godsey Media Management, announces the addition of new members, a ministry rebrand, and a renewed vigor to share the Gospel through life changing music. Formerly Promise Trio, The Promise is celebrating their 10th year in ministry with a bang. They’ve added the powerful voice of Jeremy Cato, Crimson Award winning Male Vocalist of the Year, and the youthful presence of Alyssa Scudder, daughter of group member Teresa Scudder. Both of these artists will certainly have a dynamic impact on the sound and direction of the group.

Jeremy states, “I am thrilled to team up with The Promise. It’s an honor and a privilege to join a group with such a rich history of service to our Lord. 2020 hasn’t started out as any of us could have ever imagined. However, we are believing for an invigorated church ready to be the light to the world that is now searching more than ever.”

Teresa Scudder welcomes the new direction, saying, “I’m starting my fifth year with The Promise, and what an honor it has been to be part of such an amazing ministry. God has truly blessed us and I am looking forward to what He has in store for us!” Her daughter, Alyssa, also adds, “I am very happy about joining The Promise and excited to see where the Lord leads us.”

Group founding member, Debra Carter Peele, applauds the growth. “We are beyond excited to add Jeremy Cato to The Promise. And Alyssa Scudder, who has the voice of an angel, will be a wonderful fit. It is with a fresh anointing and the greatest praise in our hearts that we are hitting the road to share the message of the Greatest Promise…Jesus Christ. He is the Hope of this world. ”

The Promise is working with Godsey Media Management as they rebrand, record new material, and create new content for social media and digital platforms. Scott Godsey says, “When I found out that Jeremy was joining The Promise, I got even more excited about them and their music than I already was. And, Alyssa will help them connect with an entirely new group of younger fans. The sky is the limit for The Promise and we are honored to be a part of their ministry.”

Just a little talk with Tonja Rose

Written by Staff on June 1, 2020 – 12:32 pm -

Tonja RoseIt was a pleasure to have Tonja Rose featured in this article, as she has an impressive message to share.  This lovely lady talks to SGNScoops writer, Jantina Baksteen.

 

Jantina Baksteen: Could you please introduce yourself to the SGNScoops readers?

Tonja Rose: My name is Tonja Rose, I am a country girl from Eastern North Carolina. Pinetown, specifically, with a population of 155. I grew up on Free Union Church Road, where I lived between corn and tobacco, and had a pig farm across the road from my house. You don’t get much more country than that unless you’re driving a tractor. All in all, I’m as country as cornbread and I am a sinner saved by grace who dies daily.

 

JB: You have had a long, rich career in music, starting from a young age. Can you share something about that?

TR: When I came along, or shortly there after, my dad was part of a gospel quartet called The Coachmen Quartet, so I grew up singing. From the age of two, the stage just became a natural fit for me. Throughout school, I was in the band and ensemble and would sing anytime I could. After high school, I got married and moved to Virginia, was in a country band and had the opportunity to open for many country artists that all told me, “You need to move to Nashville.” I moved to Nashville to pursue country music where I had charting success with an Independent record label before the label decided to shut its doors. In 2012, some friends were starting an Christian group and asked if I would be interested in joining them; that group ended up being named Crosby Lane. While with Crosby Lane, we had charting success with our song “Crucified,” and we traveled all across the country. Shortly after this charting success, my husband, Ward, had a stroke in 2016. During his, recovery I tried to convince myself how I could continue with Crosby Lane, but found myself struggling to leave him at home alone. So in early 2017, I stepped away from Crosby Lane and and decided my music days were over. As therapy for myself, I continued to write music and would write a song that changed the whole trajectory of my life, (and) our lives. My co writer, John Mathis, suggested we release the song to radio to see what happens. That song, “When the Mountain Can’t Be Moved” would be the first of four top ten singles from my album, “Me, Jesus, and the Highway,” and would garner five Diamond Award nominations.

 

Tonja Rose

Tonja and Ward Rose

JB: You have a new song out to radio, “I’m Not Who I Used To Be.” How did this song come together?

TJ: All the songs off of “Me, Jesus, and the Highway,” have some kind of connection to my husband’s stroke and recovery. The co-writer of “I’m Not Who I Used To Be,” Erin Johnston, brought the idea for this song for a completely different reason but I thought it fit perfectly with our story as I knew both Ward and I were not the same people we were before the stroke. I have learned so much from this song. The idea of that song meant one thing to Erin when she brought it to the table, which we both embraced when we wrote it, but in the end God used it in a  completely different way. And  whenI say “the end,” I mean it. The song truly became what it was intended to be when we decided to release it as the last single from the album and talked about ideas for a video. Here is how God  turnedthis song into so much more: The gentleman in the video is not an actor, but my co-writers’ uncle, John Williams. At the time we wrote the song, Erin’s family did not know if John was alive or dead. They did know this: he had struggled for years and was addicted to drugs, alcohol, gambling and was living on the streets. About the time “Me, Jesus, and the Highway,” was released in July of 2018, John reached out to his family for help and they were able to help him get in a recovery program at John 316 Mission in Tulsa, Oklahoma. There he found the love of Christ and has completely turned his life around and is now a mentor to others in the program. He uses this video to share with others his story of how God has changed who he is.
