Anthony Facello

Nashville, Tenn (Sept. 3, 2015) – While change is never easy, when GOD is in it, it is always good. With that, owner and tenor singer of Beyond The Ashes has announced a new season for his 10 year ministry.

Beyond The Ashes was started by Anthony Facello a decade ago with a passion and vision to touch lives for Christ. The group has been nominated for Dove Awards as well as receiving the Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award at the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards because of their progressive style and extraordinary talent.

Facello felt a tug in his heart to move in a different direction with his life and shared that with the other members of the group. He helped each member move forward into other ministries and now that the transitions have been finalized he issued the following statement:

“We all know there are changes of season. I love when Summer turns to Fall. The crisp air brings a feeling of new and fresh. With that being said there is a new season that has arrived in my life. Eight months ago God started dealing with me about a change and now the time has come for the last page of this chapter to turn. I have been blessed the last 10 years to lead the ministry of Beyond The Ashes. God has allowed me to play a part in the journey of many fine and talented gentlemen and now they are in great places. I have learned so much and my faith has become much stronger through these years. Thank you to all of the wonderful friends, churches and promoters who believed in Beyond The Ashes and in me. I will continue to nurture those wonderful relationships God has blessed me with. I love you all and ask for your continued prayers as I walk in this new season.”

Though the full-time ministry of Beyond The Ashes is coming to a close, Facello anticipates continued opportunities to serve God in various capacities. He looks forward to some solo dates and, also, to periodically travel and share in music ministry with friends singing and speaking about the infinite LOVE of God. Additionally, there will be limited appearances in a new format of BTA which will be called Beyond The Ashes and Friends.

For booking call 615-823-1557 or email scheduling@beyondtheashesonline.com .

About Anthony Facello

Anthony Facello, the group’s founder and tenor singer, is no stranger to Christian music. The Dove nominated male vocalist has been traveling for 18 years. He has sung and toured with some of Gospel music’s most recognized names and even enjoyed being a part of the well-known Gaither tour on several occasions. He is a singer’s singer. His incredible tenor voice is revered as one of the best in the industry. This is an opinion, not just shared by fans, but also, by industry peers. Anthony’s heart, though, is what really sets him apart. He is deeply committed to his calling. He would rather see someone sincerely touched by the music than be recognized for his gifts. In his free time, which is pretty infrequent, Anthony loves to get in a good work out at the gym, or just sit down and have coffee with friends.

Anthony shares, “I started out as a child singing in church and then with my family. Every week I would record Paul Heil’s program, The Gospel Greats, and I would listen to those tapes over and over. I always knew that I was supposed to be in full time ministry and God saw fit to open that door in 1993.” In addition to being an incredible vocal artist, Anthony also enjoys writing music. He was born in Baltimore, MD and now makes his home in Pleasant View, TN.

About Beyond The Ashes
Beyond our plans, beyond our own abilities, beyond our failures, beyond our own God-given talents, above and beyond anything we could ask or even imagine. God has a plan for each of us, to rise above the ashes and to live powerfully for Him.

When three different people come from three completely different parts of the United States and share the same strong desire and sincere call to worship and minister, then those plans, which are beyond our own, begin to come to fruition.

I cannot express how grateful we are that God led Dustin our way. He has an incredible singing voice, but most importantly, he and his wife, Aubrey, have a great heart for serving God.

Beyond The Ashes Lead Singer, Casey Rivers, Shares A Grateful Goodbye

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on July 24, 2012 – 2:54 pm -

Nashville, TN (July 24, 2012) – Beyond The Ashes lead singer, Casey Rivers, has expressed his departure from the group. While parting is sweet sorrow, this decision is based on his growing family and the kind of season change that comes along with it. Casey and his precious wife, Doni, will be welcoming baby number three in just a few short months.

Anthony Facello (ministry leader and tenor singer) shares, “Saying goodbye to Casey is truly like saying goodbye to a brother. He is and will always be an intergral part of all God is doing in our midst. He will remain in our lives as our brother in Christ and friend, and that will ease the ache of this transition a bit, but still in all, it’s tough to let him go. We do completely support his heart, gifts, and all that God has for him in this season of change. And, at the same time, we are seeing God move in incredible ways in bringing us a new singer and we are excited about what’s ahead. No one can replace Casey, but that’s the wonderful thing about God’s plans. While Casey is being faithful and blessed in his new ministry endeavors, God is opening a door for someone new to share in ministry with Beyond The Ashes. I love how He works!”

Casey expressed his departure from Beyond The Ashes with this open letter; “For more than three years now I have been blessed to be one of those three singers that make up what many have come to know as Beyond The Ashes. Saying goodbye to family, and all I’ve grown accustomed to, is not an easy thing, but nevertheless, a new season has come for BTA and for me. I am 100% supportive of my brothers, and I know they are of me, as we all begin this new journey we’re embarking upon. Also, to pacify any wondering minds, I just want to clarify that I am leaving on an incredibly good note. After much prayer and discernment, I decided this was the best decision for me and my growing family. Most of all, I’m confident that it is God’s will for us. Thank you Anthony, Kellan, Dusty, Rob, fans, friends, and most importantly God for the awesome ride! Love you all…”

An announcement about the new lead singer for Beyond The Ashes is coming soon! They covet your prayers during this time of transition and hope to see you all on the road soon.

BEYOND THE ASHES NOMINATED FOR TWO GMA DOVE AWARDS (GROUP RECEIVES NODS FOR NEW ARTIST OF THE YEAR & CONTEMPORARY GOSPEL SONG OF THE YEAR)

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on February 22, 2012 – 1:06 pm -

 Nashville, TN (Feb 22, 2012) –Powerful vocal trio, Beyond The Ashes (BTA), is overwhelmed with gratitude with news of two prestigious DOVE AWARD nominations.  The Gospel Music Association (GMA) announced the nominees at a press conference held in Atlanta, GA this morning. The announcements were hosted by comedienne extraordinaire, Chonda Pierce.
The trio’s DOVE AWARD nominations include NEW ARTIST OF THE YEAR and CONTEMPORARY GOSPEL RECORDED SONG OF THE YEAR, “What I Have I Give,” written by Wayne Haun, Joel Lindsey, and Depp Britt. The nominated song is from the album, Treasures Unseen, produced by Haun on Vine Records.
Group members Anthony Facello, Casey Rivers, and Kellan Monroe are beyond blessed by all God is doing in their ministry. These nominations have “almost” left them speechless, but BTA owner and tenor singer, Facello, tried to sum up the emotions as he shared; “We are stunned, overwhelmed, and absolutely thrilled with this tremendous news. The last 12 months have been quite a rollercoaster as we experienced successes and, also, some tough trials.  The best part has been seeing souls trust Christ and lives changed forever.  The hardest parts are tests of faith in moving forward, like when our bus caught on fire and we lost just about everything inside, including the transporation itself.  But, what GOD has proven, and continues to prove over and again, is, HE IS FAITHFUL. There is no trial He doesn’t understand and there are no victories more important than the spiritual ones we encounter as we continue to press on and serve Him in this ministry. Knowing we have received these nominations only fuels our desire to take it to the next level in this ministry and to really pray that accolades like a DOVE nomination (and, if it comes, a DOVE AWARD) will only open more opportunity to reach out to the hearts of hurting and lost people.  WOW…THANK you everyone!”
The news of the nominations follows so many other incredible areas of growth for this talented group of guys, including their recent and first top 10 song, “The Coming Of The King.”  Their new single, “Whenever We Pray,” is poised to be another chart busting hit.  Both songs can be found on Treasure Unseen.
