Debra Perry Reed Shares About Her Dad

Written by scoopsnews on June 17, 2017 – 2:48 pm -

My daddy took very sick on this particular day and we spent all morning in the ER. They discharged him and sent him home. We had to run by the pharmacy to pick up meds when he took violently sick again. I looked at him and said I was taking him right back to the hospital. This just so happened to be Gold Rush Days weekend and Daddy was always in charge of bringing gospel groups in for this festival. This was on Friday morning before the festival was to be held the next day. After getting sick, he looked at me and said, before we go back to the hospital, take me by where the stage is set up so I can make sure it’s been set right . I didn’t want to do this because he was gravely sick but I did what he asked. As we turned the street and headed down to where the stage was set, I knew in my heart daddy would never get to attend another Gold Rush Days. That’s been just about 14 years ago and I’ll never forget him looking at me and saying, “well everything looks good but I’m not sure I’ll get to be here for this tomorrow.”
Tears swelled up in my eyes cause I knew daddy wasn’t going to make it. I took him back to hospital and he never came back home. That last ride in my car I will always remember because I knew my life was about to change forever . That look in his eyes, he knew too. It wasn’t going to be long !

We asked Debra Perry Reed ..  What is your favorite Christmas Memory?

Probably our little country baptist church’s Christmas play. We didn’t have bought costumes back then and I loved playing an angel….making our costumes probably was my fondest memory other than watching my mom the week of Christmas make her delicious peanut butter balls and coconut balls!
We’d eat them as fast as she could make them!!

“Memories” with Libbi Perry

 “Memories With Libbi Perry Stuffle”

Written by Laura Kennedy

SGNScoops Magazine, July 2012

One of six children, Southern Gospel’s most beloved alto singer recently allowed SGN Scoops the privilege of some talk time. Singing, as Libbi is quick to share, has been her whole life; “I had just turned seven. We started singing on Christmas day, 1970 after the loss of my 13 year old brother, Johnny, that previous July 30, 1970. The Perrys decided to go full time after the loss of my baby brother George who was also 13 at the time of his death on June 5, 1982.”

The Perrys, in the mid 1980’s, signed with former pianist for the Happy Goodman Family, Eddie Crook on his Morning Star Records label. Libbi later met and married Tracy Stuffle who would then become the group’s longtime bass singer. For over 40 years and throughout various personnel changes, the group has not only been well received, but is one of the leading Mixed Groups in the industry today.

In my opinion, receiving awards and recognition is evidence of diligence to a skill and craft.  In southern gospel music, the most important ingredient to the success of any writer, musician, or vocal artist is the rich indwelling and guiding force of the Lord Jesus Christ.  And when the Lord allows, an artist can touch and deeply affect the spiritual walk or even awakening of their listener. Libbi is that kind of artist. And as such, has been awarded Singing News Fan Awards for the 2005 Female Vocalist and Alto Singer Of The Year and the 2006 Alto Singer of the Year.  While at the 2009 National Quartet Convention, Libbi was voted Favorite Alto in the 2009 Singing News Fan Awards. Both she and The Perrys received 11, Top 5 nominations in the 2010 Singing News Fan Awards for Favorite Artist, Mixed Group, Male Vocalist, Female Vocalist, Horizon Individual, Young Artist, Alto, Lead, Songwriter, Album, & Song. And most recently, Libbi was awarded Singing News Fan Awards, for the 2011 Favorite Alto of the Year.

Clearly, the traditional tone and strength of Libbi’s voice is what makes her a fan to many. When asked how that particular quality speaks to her, Libbi replies; “It overwhelms me! I never dreamed in a million years that people would even consider my singing anything to be awarded for. To say that I am honored would be an understatement!”   Read more »
