Great Day

Great Day

The Covenant Agency was created to serve others with a promise!! God has given us a covenant by allowing us to work with some of the most talented gospel artists in The United States. By working together both The Covenant Agency and its gospel artists are on a mission to see others come to know Jesus Christ through testimony and their musical talents. We are blessed to work with some of the most ministry-minded artists anywhere.

Our Lord God Jehovah has granted The Covenant Agency to now work with a wonderful family from the state of Florida. We would like to announce that Great Day from Mount Dora Florida is now a part of our blessed family here at The Covenant Agency.

Bill Ferguson, owner of Great Day and William “Bill” Evilsizer, CEO of The Covenant Agency have worked together in the past where that relationship has blossomed into another Great Day for The Covenant Agency. We are so happy to bring Bill, Brenda, Lisa Ann, Sara Lynn and Steven Ferguson to our blessed family of gospel artists.

Legacy Five Quartet Concert Review

By Vivian Belknap 

Calvary Baptist Church in Grand Prairie, Texas was the location for great southern gospel music featuring Legacy Five Quartet on May 31, 2014.   The first song they did was “Great Day,” followed by “Blood Washed Band,” Scott Fowler reaching back to his days with The Cathedral Quartet, and finished that set with “Feelin’ Fine.”

Scott Fowler said they were happy to be in Texas, and said to baritone Scott Howard, “there’s just something about Texas; you can eat barbeque outside of Texas…” and they looked at each other and said, “but it’s not Texas barbeque.”

Scott introduced their ‘monster bass’ singer, Matthew Fouch, 31 years old, and told him the older he gets the more monster bass he will become. Then Scott introduced Bob Wills and legendary bass singer Big John Hall who were in the audience, and told Matthew to not be nervous, even though John Hall was sitting on the front row. The next set of songs featured Matthew, and he said they specifically chose John Hall classics, “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”, “How Big Is God” and “How Great Thou Art”, which were all included in the “Great Medley”, off their Great Day album.

Gus Gaches, tenor, was introduced from Santa Rosa, California, and it’s been reported that he owns a suit that matches his surfboard; a comment that the audience really loved. Gus was featured on “I Stand Redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb.”

Trey Ivey, the piano player and youngest member of Legacy Five was introduced. Trey was conservatory educated and loves classical music. We were treated to a wonderful sonata, followed by “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.” Both songs received rousing applause from the audience.

Scott then pulled out The Red Back Hymnal, turned to page 28, and they sang “A Grand and Glorious Feeling”, with piano accompaniment only.   “After Awhile” was the next song and was also accompanied with piano only. The sound was incredible and loved by the audience.

The next song selection off their latest album, Great Day, was “He Is To Me”, followed by “There’s Just Something About That Name”, and Scott asked the audience to sing along as we experienced a great time of worship. Scott said, “I’m going to be politically incorrect, but when we are around people who are not believers, we should ask the following questions: ‘Do you know anyone born under the circumstances in which Jesus was born?’ ‘Do you know anyone who lived a sinless life?’ ‘ Do you know anyone raised from the dead after three days?’” He opened the Bible to Luke 24 and began reading verse one through verse 12. The group followed this by singing “Christ Is Still the King,” receiving a standing ovation.

Legacy 5oneThe night was complete with, “What A Happy Day”, a medley of songs that includes, “What A Happy Day,” “Everybody Will Be Happy Over There,” “I’ll Live In Glory By and By,” “When We All Get To Heaven,” “I’ll Have a New Body,” and “Everybody’s Gonna Have A Wonderful Time Up There,” from their album, Great Day.

It was a fantastic way to end a wonderful concert of worship and laughter, with encouraging words from these songs about the New Life we as Christians see now by faith but one day we will see with our own eyes.

When Legacy Five is in your area, you will be so blessed to see them in person not only for their fantastic music, but their colorful personalities. Visit them at www.legacyfive.com.

GREAT DAY RELEASES SINGLE TO RADIO!

Written by SGN Scoops on January 5, 2014 – 7:55 pm -

great dayGREAT DAY releases their latest single to radio.  “FOURTH MAN,” written by Tammie and Sarah Herring, from their latest project UNTIL THE DAY, landed at cut #1 on Patterson Promotions VOL 13.
Called into the ministry in 2005, Great Day has been traveling and ministering throughout the Southeast for the past 8 years.  Based in Central Florida, the group is made up of husband and wife Bill & Brenda Ferguson and their children, Lisa Ann, Sara Lynn, and Steven.
Chosen as a Top 20 artist at the NQC Regional stage, GREAT DAY sang their new single, FOURTH MAN, and made their NQC Main Stage this past year in Louisville KY. They have also been chosen as a Featured Artist to perform at NQC in Pigeon Forge, TN, 2014.
Their latest project is produced by the Multi-award-winning, Jeff Stice, pianist for Triumphant Quartet.  He comments, “Honestly, there is no better feeling than to hear a group sing and just know they’re special! To hear them and think to yourself, “I’d love to hear them try this, or sing that, or do that this way,” then actually get the opportunity to produce them. Such is the case with GREAT DAY! Bill and Brenda have such a wonderful blessing in their daughter Lisa. Never have I seen a young lady, her age, understand music the way she does. As a family, there is no better blend anywhere. Want some advice? Listen to this CD, Embrace this family, Tell people about them and a word to the really “wise” promoters out there, BOOK THEM!”
Great Day shares, “We hope that our ministry will not only reach the lost who do not know Jesus, but that it will also encourage those who are struggling, uplift those who are down, and create a joyful heart in all those we encounter.”
Pauline, owner of Patterson Promotions, states, “I’m so proud to have this awesome group on our Vol.13 compilation, released to national and international radio this month.  I believe this song will bless the nation!”
