Lauren Talley shares the gospel with United Nations ambassadors

Earlier this week, Lauren Talley performed at an interfaith luncheon for United Nations ambassadors in New York City.

Arden, North Carolina (December 13, 2019) — Gospel singer Lauren Talley shared the gospel with world ambassadors to the United Nations when she sang at an interfaith luncheon hosted by the Foreign Service Fellowship earlier this week in New York City.

The luncheon serves as an outreach to ambassadors of different religions and ethnicities with the hope of spreading the true meaning of Christmas.

“About 60 ambassadors from all over the world, of every religion, ethnicity and creed, gathered to celebrate the reason for Christmas and were so gracious as I sang ‘Jesus What A Wonderful Child,’ and ‘The Broken Ones,’” says Talley. “God is doing big things in our world!”

Talley calls the event the honor of a lifetime. “It’s a huge honor for me to proclaim Jesus to some of the most influential leaders in the world,” she says.

Earlier this year, Talley released two albums of music inspiring heartfelt worship and praise of the Lord. Each showcases her powerful and soulful voice. Loudest Praise: Hymns of Mercy, Love And Grace features beloved hymns, reminding of their timelessness and eloquence for worship, while Glorious God: Songs of Worship and Wonder captures the awe Christ inspires with some of today’s most loved worship songs.
About Lauren Talley
Lauren Talley is one of Christian music’s most dynamic talents and has inspired a generation of young people to serve the Lord.

Lauren Talley: Loudest Praise: Hymns of Mercy, Love And Grace.Born into a rich musical heritage, Lauren sang her first solo at age 2 when she toddled onto the stage, interrupted her family’s concert and announced she wanted to “thing.” Lauren went on to make her own mark on the gospel music world as a member of her family group, The Talleys, with whom she received numerous awards, including a 2015 Dove Award for their song, “Hidden Heroes.” Lauren’s lead vocals shine on eleven number one hits for the group.

She has recorded five solo albums, her most recent being the highly touted 2017 release, “The Gospel,” which displays her skills as singer, producer, and songwriter. She is also the author of “Songs In The Night,” a companion devotional book to her 2010 album of the same title. Lauren performs solo concerts and is a featured singer and speaker for many women’s conferences and special events across the country. She is frequently recognized for her appearances on numerous Gaither Homecoming videos and concerts, RFD-TV’s “The Music City Show” and “In Touch” with Dr. Charles Stanley. In 2014 she was awarded an honorary doctorate degree in Worship Arts from John Wesley University.

When not traveling or recording her own music, Lauren often serves as studio background singer and producer for other recordings and works with emerging artists as a voice and performance coach. Lauren is a busy lady but always finds time to cheer on her beloved Tennessee Volunteers, drink sweet tea and spend time laughing with family and friends.

“My job as a communicator is to give people the truth of the Gospel,” Lauren says. “I want people to know that Jesus is everything – He’s the Answer the world is searching for, He’s the solution to all problems and He’s the only One in whom we have real hope. He called me to give people His message when I was 12 years old, and fulfilling that call is all I’ve ever really wanted.”

‘A Reason To Celebrate’ at the Ark Encounter

A Reason To Celebrate by Steve Hess and Southern Salvation at the Ark EncounterFranklin, TN (December 5, 2019) – The Ark’s resident musical group, Steve Hess & Southern Salvation, are celebrating Christmas twice each day at the Answers Center Theater during the season. Steve Hess was tasked earlier in the year to write and create a Christmas musical as one of the Ark’s ‘ChristmasTime at Ark Encounter’ free events this year. This led to Steve composing several original Christmas songs, the inclusion of some Christmas favorites and writing a musical that leads the main character of the play on a journey to discover the real meaning of Christmas and ‘A Reason To Celebrate’.

One of the compositions for ‘A Reason To Celebrate’ is a collaboration with group member, John McCall, on “Luke 2, The Christmas Story”.

This new Christmas song is also being used as a promotion for the ‘ChristmasTime at Ark Encounter’ event by founder Ken Ham and the Ark Encounter.

Beyond the Song: Greater Vision sings “You’ve Arrived”

Written by Staff on December 1, 2019 – 10:30 am -

Beyond the Song: Greater Vision sings "You've Arrived"Beyond the Song: Greater Vision sings “You’ve Arrived,” interview by Jantina Baksteen

I caught up with Gerald Wolfe of Greater Vision for this interview for Beyond The Song.

Group members of Greater Vision include: Gerald Wolfe, Rodney Griffin, Chris Allman, and Jon Epley.

Jantina Baksteen: December of this year, you celebrate 29 years of Greater Vision! What was your greater vision when the group was formed in 1990?

Gerald Wolfe: I wouldn’t say we had some sort of epiphany, but I would say we had a strong desire to put a group together that would focus on strong lyrics that would convey a clear message, good arrangements that would be interesting to listen to, and that would convey the message of the lyric to the listener.  We also wanted to have a group that would compliment a church service, as well as be entertaining enough to be effective on a concert platform. Looking back, it’s easy to see how the Lord guided those early steps that set us on the right course.

JB: To me, you are my Southern gospel music hero. What exactly is your definition of Southern gospel music?

GW: Thank you so much! You’re very kind. Your question is one I’ve been seriously asking for a couple of years now. I was listening to gospel music, and going to concerts, before “Southern Gospel” existed, as a term or genre label. To me, what we do has always been “Gospel Music.”  If an unchurched person asks me what I do, I tell them I’m involved in Christian music. Usually, they will have some sort of concept about what that is, but I’m not certain “Southern Gospel” has ever been an effective term to describe the kind of music we do, to someone who has never been exposed to it. These days, our genre of music encompasses such a wide variety of musical styles, I’m really not sure “Southern Gospel” is an adequately descriptive term anymore, even among people who might have an idea of what they think it is. The definition seems to depend on the personal tastes of the person describing it. So… the short answer to your question is, I don’t really know what Southern Gospel is. I just know what I like, personally, and I call it Gospel.

JB: How would you describe the music Greater Vision is singing now?

GW: I’ve always called it “Gospel Music,” “Christian Music,” or “Church Music.”  Overall, our basic style and sound hasn’t changed over the last 29 years. However, we’ve never been afraid to stretch and challenge ourselves, musically. So, in that respect, we do a lot of different varieties of musical styles, within the confines of keeping the “Greater Vision sound” we’ve become known for, and that our listeners expect. People will usually go with you on a little musical journey, as long as you bring them back “home.”


Beyond the Song: Greater Vision sings "You've Arrived"JB:
You had to step down from singing and Jon Epley has taken your position. Has this changed the dynamic?

GW: I actually think bringing Jon onboard has actually broadened our dynamic, and allowed us to do some things we hadn’t been able to do before, especially in our concerts. Jon’s voice is easy to blend with, and he has a great ear, so he quickly adapted to our sound; and on recordings, most people can’t tell the difference between the old Greater Vision, and the new GV.  He’s been a great addition.

JB: Do you miss singing? If the crowd asks you, will you step up and sing?

GW: I can’t say I miss singing, since I still do sing when I feel good, or when someone makes a special request for something I can still do.

JB: I enjoy the radio release of the same titled album, “You’ve Arrived.” How did this song come together?

GW: “You’ve Arrived” was sent to us by Rick Shelton, at Daywind Publishing. It was written by Kenna Turner West, Sue Smith, and Marcia Henry. The first time we heard it, we knew it would make a great opener for the album, but a couple of lines needed to be changed to make it work. The writers graciously agreed to make the changes we suggested, and now we sing it every time we walk onto the platform.

JB: Who orchestrates your music since your long-time friend is home with the Greatest Orchestrator?

GW: Since my long-time friend, Lari Goss, passed away, we’ve worked with two young arrangers: Trey Ivey and Cody McVey, and well-known arranger, Steve Mauldin. It’s been an interesting journey, having worked with Lari for so long. I first worked with him in the studio in 1981, and there are still days I cry when I listen to some of beautiful work he did for so long. He was a friend and a hero, and there’ll never be another Lari Goss. Thankfully, The Lord is still raising up gifted people to help create arrangements that will lift the songs from paper and deliver them to the heart of the listener.  On our new CD, Trey Ivey did all the arrangements.


Beyond the Song: Greater Vision sings "You've Arrived"JB:
Even before summer time starts, you start talking about Christmas. For you, what makes the best Christmas?

GW: There’s nothing better than listening to Christmas music when it’s 90F degrees outside! For me, there’s never a wrong time to talk about Christmas. Since we call it “the most wonderful time of the year,” why should we limit it to four weeks, between Thanksgiving and December 25? I prefer having “the most wonderful time of the year” all year long!  Seriously, when we think about the real gift of Christmas, and what it really meant for God to come to earth as a baby, we should be overwhelmed, whether it’s in July, September, December, or February.  So, the best Christmas for me, is whenever I think about it!  Merry CHRISTmas!

JB: Who has the most jokes /funny stories when you are on the road?

GW: I’d say it’s a close tie. When we get on the bus for a trip, everybody usually has at least one funny story about something that happened while we were at home. Anybody who’s traveled with us for a weekend will tell you the laughs start when we get up in the morning, and usually continue until the last light is turned out at night.

JB: I know you like to drive. Do you make the most miles behind the wheel?

GW: All of us share the driving responsibilities on the road. Everybody on the bus has a Commercial Driver License (CDL) and we have to remain in compliance with current DOT regulations for buses. We drive 250-mile shifts, and driving is something I really enjoy, unless I happen to end up with the 2:00 p.m. ’til 6:00 am shift, when we have an all-night drive on the schedule. I don’t think anyone enjoys that!

JB: What is your favorite quote to share?

GW: I love good quotes. One of my favorite is,  “Obey God, and leave all the consequences to Him.” (Dr. Charles Stanley).

JB: Thank you, Gerald, for giving us a little insight into Greater Vision. May God continue to bless your ministry, that wherever the bus stops to share your music, the words sung and the words spoken won’t return empty. 

Please enjoy this video preview of Greater Vision singing the songs from “You’ve Arrived!”

Thanksgiving 2019: Are you thankful? Day 3

Written by Staff on November 27, 2019 – 3:30 pm -

ThanksgivingHappy day before Thanksgiving 2019! It seems like we get so busy with our everyday lives; we buy what we need, we consume what we get, and then we take out the trash. Some things just last a little longer than others. So much in our lives gets taken for granted, including the intangible things, like family relationships, love, friendships, church families, joy, good neighbours, and so much more. As we give thanks this week for what we can see, let’s remember to give thanks for that which we can’t see. Let’s remember that every good and perfect gift comes from our Heavenly Father.

We asked some of our SGNScoops friends and family to share what they are thankful for and they have given some great responses. See if you can relate to any of these comments below. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

ThanksgivingI am thankful for God’s faithfulness… how He always knows just what we need and how He always has a plan. The times that He shows up when all seems lost… the moments that happen when you just have to stop and say, “thank you, Lord” because you KNOW that it was HIM working in your situation. Even when things might seem hopeless to us, He’s busy working things out for our good. He loves us- even when we’re unlovable and He is Faithful even when we aren’t. — Tammy Sumner

Salvation, family and friends! — Nancy Carollo

I’m am thankful that God is so Faithful and he never leaves us nor forsakes us. — Mary Burke

JESUS! — Elisangela Defreitas

I am thankful for Gods Amazing grace that gives me the opportunity and honor to serve him daily. He has blessed me over and above anything I deserve with family, friends and a ministry that has seen lost souls come into the kingdom. My prayer is that he continues to use us all and that we have the courage to let him do his will and not us doing our will. God bless and HAPPY THANKSGIVING. — Jerry Jennings

I’m thankful for God’s answered prayers. The ones He said yes too and the ones He said NO too… — Penny Walters

I am thankful for the Lord Jesus Christ my savior, my wife, Brenda Duke Barber, our daughter Rebecca Dempsey & Jesicca Prath, their husbands and our three grandsons and soon to be granddaughter, several other family members, several friends, the saints from the First Pentecostal Church of Gainesville, GA, Several new friends from Creekside and Southern Gospel Music weekend. — James Barber

I’m so thankful for God’s unconditional love and forgiveness. I fail Him everyday but He still loves me. He is always faithful, even if I don’t see it in that moment. I’m thankful for my health, cancer could have taken me BUT GOD had another plan. He has a purpose for me. I’m thankful for my home, family, true friends and too many blessings to list. Thankful that Heaven will be my eternal home and that’s priceless. — Paula Hendrick

I’m thankful for salvation that Jesus gave, as he died on the cross. I’m thankful for my family, friends. My church, Pastors Dale and Sharon Cox, Brad and Julie Cox. God has given me a wonderful man of God who lives what he preaches. My mentor Rev, Dr. Vanessa Milligan, some time a woman needs another woman to talk to, she encourages me, and no matter what shes always been there for me. I’m thankful to the word of God, I can always find my answers. Thankful for a roof over my head, food to eat, and clothes on my back. I could go on and on. So I’m gonna sum it up in one word. THANKFUL… — Phyllis Schofield

Thankful I wake up to new mercies every morning. If it wasn’t for that mercy, I wouldn’t be here to be thankful for all the other things my blessed life offers: my family, my friends, my church family, the roof over my head, the clothes and shoes I wear, the car I drive, the music I’m privaleged to sing, and the list goes on… — Rebecca Dempsey

We hope you have enjoyed these expressions of thanks. Stay tuned for more gratitude on Thanksgiving Day!

Poet Voices welcomes bass singer, Cyle Cornish

Written by Staff on November 21, 2019 – 7:21 pm -

Cyle Cornish joins Poet VoicesNashville, TN – 11/20/19 Poet Voices and the Beckie Simmons Agency are proud to announce the addition of Cyle Cornish to the Poet Voices team.

A lifelong Michigan resident, some of Cyle Cornish’s fondest memories are of attending southern gospel concerts as a child in the 1970’s.Cyle began singing in regional quartets in the early 90’s but is most recognized from his time with The Melody Masters, whom he joined in 1999.

Cyle is also an accomplished songwriter. He has penned several Singing News Top 40 songs, and has had songs recorded by groups such as The Whisnants, Three Bridges, and The Down East Boys.

“I feel truly blessed to be the newest member of the Poet Voices family,” shares Cornish. “I am a genuine Poet
Voices fan! Like most Southern gospel fans, I have always had a deep appreciation for Phil’s writing. I am also genuinely excited for the opportunity to share the stage with some absolutely great singers!”

Cyle CornishCyle and his wife Dyan own Lighthouse Sportswear, which provides merchandise and decorated apparel for several music organizations- including over 30 southern gospel artists – and serve as the Merchandise Directors for the National Quartet Convention.

“We are so excited to welcome Cyle to the PV team. He has been a friend for many years and I have always enjoyed
his singing,” says Phil Cross. “It is a joy to finally get to sing with him. We must also thank some gentlemen who
did an excellent job filling in with us while we sought out a permanent member. These men include KC Armstrong, Dennis Dugger, Dwayne Burke, and Nathan Prisk.”

Poet Voices was greeted with enthusiasm and love when they returned to the Gospel Music scene as a quartet in 2017.

Gospel music fans and artists continue to express their admiration for the group’s energetic performances and the catalog of hit songs written by group founder, Phil Cross.

“We are having a great time and we are so grateful for an opportunity to contribute to the music genre that we love so much!” says Cross. “We are also looking forward to this next chapter for our team.”

Long time PV member, Donny Henderson says, “When we made our return, we knew we needed to share the songs that built the PV brand – songs like I Am Redeemed, Grace & Glory, Jesus Built A Bridge, and The Key. We also wanted to share songs that Phil has written for other artists – songs like Wedding Music, When I Get Carried Away and Champion Of Love. But, we have nearly finished writing a new collection of original songs (to be a complete album very soon) that we can’t wait to share. Poet Voices is looking forward to an exciting and impactful 2020 and beyond.”

Look for Poet Voices in a city near you and be sure to welcome Cyle to the team!

Jason Clark needs prayer

Written by Staff on November 21, 2019 – 10:49 am -

The Nelons Announce Exclusive Single Release

Jason Clark and the rest of The Nelons

Kelly Nelon Clark and all members of Christian music family, the Nelons, have been posting over the last couple of days about issues being experienced by their family. The most concerning is the heart problems that Jason Clark is currently experiencing. He certainly needs our prayer as he has been in and out of the hospital.

In his most recent post on Facebook, Jason explains the seriousness of his health problem.

Jason Clark and Kelly Nelon Clark

Jason Clark and Kelly Nelon Clark

“Quick Update:
My cardiologist let me come home last night. I will return tomorrow for a check up, and Tuesday to meet with the surgeon. All the “experts” tell me after the surgery and recovery that I will be feeling like a 20 year old again. I am still praying, seeking counsel, just because I am not so eager to have open heart surgery. I feel completely fine until I have a spasm and immediately I’m reminded I have a blood flow issue around my heart. I will be on the road this weekend and I am monitoring my bpm very closely. I have extremely low BP and my heart rate stays at a very calm rate but that’s normal for me even under stressful circumstances.
My stress test yesterday only got my bpm up to 154 and they wanted to monitor it at 175. Just couldn’t get it there.
Today I’m back in my office doing some work and hanging out at the farm.

Love you all and appreciate the prayers more than anything.” — Jason Clark — Nov. 21, 2019

Please join all of us in praying for this Godly man.
