The video was produced by Paul and Tre’ Corley for Activate. This timely video portrays a son turning to his father for help with an addiction. The song “Put It Right There”, which was penned by Gerald Crabb, compares their relationship to our relationship with Christ. It’s a powerful message and a powerful video.

The LeFevre Quartet signs with Activate Records

Written by SGN Scoops on April 24, 2012 – 6:28 pm -

When you think of Gospel Music, LeFevre is a name that has always been at the top of our field. In 1921, two brothers and a sister formed a group, which became known as The LeFevre’s, traveling and singing the gospel for decades.  In 2005, a new sound emerged in Gospel Music, holding the same banner that was held by the original LeFevre group. Just one year after forming The LeFevre Quartet, fans voted them 2006 Horizon Group of the Year. In 2009 their song “Big Mighty God” was nominated as a top 5 song by the Dove awards. This group continues to hold up the standard that was started over 90 years ago. Here at Activate, we are excited about our new partnership with The LeFevre Quartet  joining with them to reach the world with the Gospel in song..

FARMINGTON — Local Christian artist Chelley Odle performed live at a Saturday night concert celebrating the release of her new CD, “Incredible Love.” The concert, being held at Farmington’s Centene Center, with opening act, Nashville singer / songwriter Michael Boggs.

Odle, of Desloge, last year signed with Activate Records to work on “Incredible Love,” her sophomore recording project. She worked on the album with Grammy Award-winning, Dove-nominated producer, Tre’ Corley.

Odle has opened for such acts as The Crabb Family, Crabb Revival, Austin’s Bridge and Gold City. She has also performed with Crossway, Annie McRae, Aaron and Amanda Crabb, Crabb Revival and Jason Crabb.

She was a 2009 and 2010 ICM top 10 nominee for female vocalist of the year. Odle was also the 2010 CCMNOW Christian Country Honor Award recipient of the Female Vocalist of the Year Award. In 2011, she was nominated once again for the ICM Female Vocalist of the Year Award.

Opening act, Michael Boggs, joined the contemporary Christian group, FFH, in 1999 while a sophomore in college. FFH was extremely successful with seven No. 1 radio singles and seven GMA Dove Awards nominations. He recorded five FFH projects with Essential Records that have sold nearly two million copies. As a band member Boggs was involved in numerous special event projects, such as the multi-platinum WOW Hits and WOW Worship.

When FFH took some time off the road in the fall of 2006, he stepped into the role of worship leader for a ministry in Brentwood, Tenn., that hosts nearly 1,000 college students and other young adults every week. Boggs continues to keep a rigorous solo-touring schedule and has lent his songwriting skills to other artists who have garnered him 10 singles, as well as a featured song in the motion picture, “Facing the Giants.” He wrote three of the songs on Odle’s new CD.
