Kenny Parsons Of Indian Trail, North Carolina Joins The Promise

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on September 27, 2013 – 8:09 am -

promisepromoIndian Trail, NC Folks familiar with Southern Gospel Music around Indian Trail, North Carolina know the voice of Kenny Parsons. He sang regularly as a soloist in the Celebration Choir at First Baptist Church Indian Trail for several years and has a God-given vocal talent that is highly anointed.

Kenny grew up singing almost constantly, and then a few years ago, his voice went silent. Kenny decided to take an extended break from Gospel music. A few months ago, Kenny re-committed his life to the Lord. He felt something was missing and called his long-time friend, Rick Blessing of THE PROMISE to see if he could attend one of their practice sessions. As he sang with the group during rehearsal, the presence of the Holy Spirit was so evident that he was invited to join them at their next engagement in Georgia the following Sunday. Kenny will be joining the group for select dates.

Kenny’s father, Ken, is no stranger to Gospel Music. He is an ordained minister and one of the best Bluegrass banjo players around. There were many people praying for Kenny to return to Gospel Music, but none were praying more than his father and his step-mother Laurae. What are Ken’s thought on Kenny joining THE PROMISE? Ken stated, “ I have prayed for so long that God would stir Kenny’s heart to use his anointed voice and talents for God’s glory and I am more convinced than ever of God’s faithfulness! Kenny has been through allot but the God we serve is greater than all of our storms.”

Kenny and his wife, Mindy have seven children and reside in Indian Trail, North Carolina.

“Kenny’s addition allows him to sing with his long-time friend, Rick Blessing. Rick, Mandy and I, along with our families are thrilled have Kenny with us!” states Debra Carter Peele, founder and leader of THE PROMISE.

The Promise’s most recent Daywind radio release went to #1 nationally on Music to Radio and was a Pick Hit in The Singing News. They are 2012 NQC Showcase Winners and also 2012 Diamond Award Top 10 Finalists. Most recently, they have appeared on TBN. Members of the group are: Rick Blessing, Mandy Wing Foster and founder, Debra Carter Peele.

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on January 9, 2012 – 8:45 pm -

OAK GROVE, Ark. – Diamond Award winning trio 2nd Generation regretfully announces the departure of group member Rocky Logan from the group. Rocky has been an integral part of the ministry of 2ndGeneration for over a year.

Brenda Denney of 2nd Generation said, “We will miss Rocky so much. We have enjoyed him being with us the last 15 months. Rocky took 2nd Generation to a new level with his strong vocals, and we will miss all the fun times on the road. We wish him the best and we know that God will continue to use him.

“Change is hard, but change is good,” continued 2nd Generation’s Elaine Robinson. “That means God is going to do something new. We are excited about the new year ahead of us. We once again will put our extravagant faith into action, and we are expecting God’s favor in everything we need.”

Rocky Logan said, “It has been such a great joy traveling with 2nd Generation. Sometimes in life we have to make difficult decisions, and this has been one of those. After much prayer and consideration, I believe this is the right decision for me at this time. God has placed a calling on my life, and I will continue to follow that call wherever doors open. I want to thank Brenda and Elaine for giving me the opportunity to travel and minister with them. I will miss all the fun times we had on the road together! I know God will continue to bless 2nd Generation in all they do”

2nd Generation is currently reviewing resumes and CDs for the position. Those interested in auditioning for the position can email Brenda Denney at thesecondg@yahoo.com or call (913) 710-5227.

The group is still planning to record their follow-up to the breakthrough recording I See a City later this year with award-winning producer Roger Talley (Talley Trio, Kingsmen). Until then, 2nd Generation released their latest single, “Dust On the Altar,” to Southern Gospel radio. All radio promotions are being done in-house for the group, so for more information on how to attain the single, email thesecondg@yahoo.com.
