The Kingdom Heirs’ broad talents shine on Everything In BetweenArden, North Carolina (September 27, 2019) — On two new albums from Sonlite Records, The Kingdom Heirs (website HERE) and 11th Hour (,website HERE) show their dynamic talents and passion for spreading the word of God with their music. The Kingdom Heirs’ Everything In Between and 11th Hour’s A Lot With A Little are available now.

On Everything In Between, The Kingdom Heirs illustrate why they’ve been noted as one of the top quartets in Southern Gospel music. The album features full quartet tunes, a cappella hymns and lively instrumentals. Each style lifts up praise to the Lord for all He’s done for us on Earth.

The album begins with “Just Drink The Water,” a new song from the pens of Lee Black, Gina Boe and Jerry Salley about wanting to be a witness of Christ’s love and spreading His message. The title track reminds that no matter what happens in life, Jesus is the first, last and everything in between. With an upbeat, country feel, this song features bass vocalist Jeff Chapman on the verses with the group joining on the chorus, and embodies the heart of Southern Gospel traditions.

The Kingdom Heirs’ instrumental work shines on their rendition of “Sweet By And By,” a classic hymn immediately recognizable with the joyful piano of Andy Stringfield. “Holy, Holy Is What The Angels Sing,” sung a cappella, is an old church hymn that tells of the joy salvation will bring and what it will be like to join the choir of angels. Everything In Between closes with “High On Zion’s Mountain” a powerful song penned by one of the group’s favorite writers, Dianne Wilkinson. With grand music, it tells of the glorious day when we reach Heaven and the beauty that will be found there.

Kingdom HeirsWith their vocal and instrumental abilities, The Kingdom Heirs praise and worship the Lord with each song on Everything In Between. Whether it’s a compelling song with the full group, a moving instrumental or a smooth a cappella tune, this album has something for each listener looking to lift up the Lord and His message.

Listen to Everything In Between HERE.

With mighty expressions of worship and quiet moments of surrender, 11th Hour puts a spotlight on what God can do with a little trust and a lot of faith on their latest album, A Lot With A Little. The album is a heartfelt statement of the group members’ passion to use their talents to serve the Lord.

A Lot With A Little kicks off on a high note with the title track and first single. With powerful vocals from Amber Eppinette and a high-energy driving feel, “A Lot With A Little” recalls how Jesus made miracles happen without having much to work with, a lesson we can use in our own lives. It doesn’t take much to experience God’s goodness in life. Eppinette’s vocals shine again on “Bring On The Storm,” a song about remembering life’s trials are about growing in relationships with oneself and God.

11th Hour brings dynamic talents to A Lot With A Littl11th Hour couples these high-energy songs with others that create peaceful moments of stillness. Led by alto Jaquita Lindsey, “Always On His Mind” details how God serves our needs in all areas of life, whether joyful or sad. Later, “How Much Broken Is Enough,” describes feelings of desperation, without an end in sight. But don’t fear — God is a healer.

11th Hour’s newest member, tenor Logan Smith, shines on “Love Don’t” and “Love Leaves A Mark,” both about the enduring nature of love, which knows no bounds and will always be present in the world.

11th Hour: Powerful Prayers and Opening DoorsA Lot With A Little shows the range Eppinette, Lindsey and Smith bring to the music they create. With a focus on uplifting the Lord, 11th Hour will inspire audiences to praise and worship with all they have.

Melody Without Measure – “Highlight Reel”

Written by scoopsnews on August 13, 2019 – 6:36 am -

Ashley, Jaquita, & Katy

Life is like a melody, with highs and lows and everything in between. But what’s a melody without harmony, touching lyrics, and beautiful orchestrations? Katy, Ashley, and Jaquita have a desire to be that kind of support, encouraging and inspiring all who read to find the sweet melody in the chaos.

Jaquita Lindsey grew up in Camden, Arkansas, where music and ministry have always been a major part of her life, from singing in choir at school and church, to singing and playing drums with local groups. In January of 2014, she joined the Southern Gospel trio 11th Hour. Ministry is beyond the edge of the stage for her. “While songs and messages are an amazing source of encouragement for me, it goes beyond that during hard times of life. Nothing ministers to me more than having a friend tell me they’ve prayerfully had me on their heart. God can use us to build up each other.”

Ashley Easley began singing at the age of 4, in her home church in Heflin, Alabama. That day, music became her first love, until several years later when she met Jesus. She began traveling at the age of 15 and has always loved the ministry. In 2007, she met Josh Franks, and one year later they were married. The two have been married almost 12 years and have two children- Priscilla, 8, and Eli, 5. The Franks family continues to travel week to week and sing, but every Sunday and Wednesday you will find them on Airways Boulevard in Savannah, Tennessee, where Josh is the Senior Pastor at People’s Tabernacle Church. 

Katy Peach, as a young girl from Columbus, Ohio, had big dreams of traveling the country on a bus, singing Southern Gospel music. She was extremely blessed to have done just that for many years. But shortly after the arrival of twin boys, Clayton and Shelton, Katy’s dream changed to that of a mother whose desire was for her children to have a “normal life.” Although Katy can still be found in the studio on occasion, she now works in Banking while her husband, Troy Peach of The Perrys, continues to travel full-time. “I have certainly learned over the years that you don’t have to be on stage to be used by God and although I miss traveling and singing at times, I’m thankful for opportunities to minister and encourage from home.”

11th Hour: Powerful Prayers and Opening Doors

Written by Staff on August 11, 2019 – 10:33 am -

11th Hour: Powerful Prayers and Opening Doors

11th Hour: Powerful Prayers and Opening Doors

Experts may say the world is in the 11th hour and may be approaching apocalypse, because of the downturn in the environment due to man-made pollution. Others say that many animal species are in their 11th hour because of the threat of extinction. Then there is the threat and presence of war, division and discrimination which often makes us feel that humankind is approaching the 11th hour.

 

The truth is that we are in the 11th hour. The Bible clearly tells us that we are in the end times, and frankly, the world’s time clock might be a little slow. But whether or not it is 10 minutes to midnight or five, time is flying by and gospel trio, 11th Hour, desires to spread the knowledge of salvation through Jesus before the clock strikes 12.

11th Hour Amber Eppinette has been the owner and soprano of the group since she began the trio 10 years ago, at the age of 16. This lady has more stage presence and ability to communicate than artists twice her age, yet that does not seem to have changed her attitude or her vision for the group.

This powerful soprano has seen the group’s songs rise in the charts and enjoyed award nominations and achievements. The music of 11th Hour is heard across the nation and the world, yet she is humble and respectful of her call from God.

11th Hour “I truly believe it’s everything from knowing what our call is and that is to minister, on and off the stage, to having a great team that supports and backs us,” says Eppinette. “Our families, the Crossroads label, Beckie Simmons Agency, the churches, and of course all of the D.J.s that believe in our music to play it.”

11th Hour

Amber Eppinette

The music of 11th Hour can be found on their seven recordings, which includes a recent Christmas album. One single released to radio that received a lot of attention was “Power in Prayer.” This song also brings positive response when performed live during a concert.

“On the ‘Silence the Stones’ project, ‘Power in Prayer’ is probably the most requested,” states alto vocalist, Jaquita Lindsey. “There’s not a person in the crowd that can’t relate with the lyrics to that song. Every one of us have been through a trial and can testify that there’s power in prayer.” 

11th Hour

Jaquita Lindsey

An 11th Hour song that is personally poignant to Lindsey still receives a lot of airplay.

Eppinette’s vocals shine again on “Bring On The Storm,” a song about remembering life’s trials are about growing in relationships with oneself and God. Eppinette sings, “Oh I know my Lord can calm the raging sea / But if He says it’s good for me / Then bring on the storm.”

11th Hour couples these high-energy songs with others that create peaceful moments of stillness. Led by alto Jaquita Lindsey, “Always On His Mind” details how God serves our needs in all areas of life, whether joyful or sad. Later, “How Much Broken Is Enough,” describes feelings of desperation, without an end in sight. But don’t fear — God is a healer. Led by Eppinette, it says “I am the healer when you need a touch / I am the mender when life comes undone / That’s a promise, so don’t give up / The deeper the pain, the stronger the love / Child I know, yes I know, how much broken is enough.”

11th Hour brings dynamic talents to A Lot With A Littl11th Hour’s newest member, tenor Logan Smith, shines on “Love Don’t” and “Love Leaves A Mark,” both about the enduring nature of love, which knows no bounds and will always be present in the world.

Christmas Wacky Wednesday from SGNScoops

Written by Staff on December 12, 2018 – 11:05 am -

Wacky Wednesday titleIt’s Christmastime here on SGNScoops and we have a brand new Christmas edition of Wacky Wednesday just for you. This time, our question was: What is your favorite Christmas song and why? Let’s shake our Gospel music snowglobe and see what answers the artists have for us.

Thanks again to our special Social Media girl, Jantina de Haan, for securing these responses for us. We hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas!

 

Christmas 2017Mark Byrd: “Mary Did You Know.” I love the way this song has such a sweet flow but tells a story of a mighty King and Savior.

 

Eric Bennett: “Hope Has Hands” © Phill Cross; I love the way he describes baby Jesus. Hope has Hands, Freedom has Feet; Truth will stand, The Word will speak. The Holy and Lovely will finally embrace. For Love has a Heartbeat and Grace has a Face…”

Triumphant Christmas

Adam Crabb: “O Holy Night,” because it talks about the birth of our Savior and to me, this song is the true spirit of Christmas.

Kingdom Heirs ChristmasJaquita Lindsey: “Do You Hear What I Hear.” I remember trying to learn it on the piano, which I never learned to play the piano 🙂 I don’t have a particular reason for liking it. Just because.

Greg Sullivan: “There’s a New Kid In Town.” I like this song because not many people in Bethlehem knew that Jesus had been born and it focuses on how God became man in form of a child. This child would be the Savior of the world.

Randa Jordan: “White Christmas.” I loved the movie as a little girl, loved Bing Crosby, and it stayed with me all these years. It brings to me the happiest of memories.

Arthur Rice: “I’ll Be Home For Christmas.” The song came out in 1943 during WW2 and it was written from a soldier’s perspective of wanting to be home

Gaither Christmas Homecoming 2016

Gaither Homecoming

with their families for Christmas, even though the last line reveals it wouldn’t be a reality.
The song always reminds me of the reality that so many of our men and women won’t be home for Christmas. And how appreciative we should be for the sacrifice of them and their families, and we pray for their safe and speedy

return home.

Mark Bishop: Wow.. that’s a tough one. It’s hard to narrow it down to one song. For the simplicity of the beautiful message and the melody, it’s hard to beat “Silent Night.” It exemplifies what we should be focusing on at Christmas time, over shopping and gifts. It always makes me a little melancholy, too. Likewise, with Jubilee Christmas 2018. Greater Vision and Legacy Five“Oh Holy Night.” My sleeper choice would have to be “The Little Drummer Boy.” I love the story that it tells and that we don’t need to bring great gifts to Jesus like the three wise men, we only need to give Him the talents that He gave us. But the greatest Christmas gift of all is to give back to God what He gave us, to begin with.

Matt Fouch: I have a funny one…’You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” I love the original cut on this song and it fits the bass range just perfectly. People always smile when they hear you sing it, It’s a lot of fun.

Southern Gospel Sweetheart Autumn Nelon Clark

Autumn Clark of the Nelons

Autumn Clark: “The Christmas song.” Because it is so beautiful and the story it tells.

Scott Peek (DJ of KNMG Radio): “We Are The Reason.” The message can be no clearer. He came to earth as a baby for us. All 33 years of His life were about us His willingness to die on the cross was about us. And it all started that first Christmas morning…”WE ARE THE REASON!”

Harley Madden: “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” I think maybe my favorite song for Christmas. And the reason I say that is, back in 1985 my sister passed, and I miss her everyday. But now I think about it, she made my mom a promise for Christmas that year. And that was: She would be home for Christmas. Even though we may not have got our wish for her to be at her earthly home for Christmas, she was made new in her Heavenly home. Sitting at the feet of Jesus. I can’t wait to get to Heaven, to be able to see her again and give her a big hug.

Merry Christmas from SGNScoops

This week’s questions are: what is your favorite fruit and what was the first job you held? See if you can tell which answer is which!

We will let the men go first again:

Josh Jordan: Oranges and pouring concrete

Gerald Wolfe: Demonstrating Baldwin organs and pianos. I was in high school and strawberries

Jordan Family Band

Jordan Family Band

Corey Pearson: Cutting grass and watermelon and strawberries

Bob Sellers: Tough one. I love all fruit! I’d have to say watermelon and Housel hardware store in Gordo Alabama. I was 15.

Josh Townsend: Oranges and the pianist for the Old Paths

Pat Barker: Choir director and Of The Looms…

Clayton Inman: Banana and day camp counselor

 

Let’s hear from the ladies…

Jaquita Lindsey: Bananas and Tasty Freeze

Wendy Hayes: Roses department store and strawberries, watermelon, oranges

Clayton Inman

Clayton Inman

Were these answers what you expected? We hope you enjoyed this Q&A and perhaps it shed a little more light on your favorite artists. And did you know that fear of taste is “geumaphobia“? The Bible says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” He’s better even than bananas! “Taste” here means “experience” or “enjoy” or to take into your heart and let Him give you the nutrients your soul needs. He is good!!

We start off our series with an easy question: What is your favorite type of coffee?

Ladies first…

Jaquita Lindsey: Pike Place coffee

Wendy Hayes: Vanilla Bean Frappe

Now the Gentlemen…

Josh Jordan:  I drink absolutely NO coffee!

Gerald Wolfe: Skinny Peppermint Mocha, extra hot

Corey Pearson: Straight black coffee because I can’t pronounce any of the other drinks

Bob Sellers: White chocolate mocha, hot, grand triple shot

Pat Barker: Cinnamon hazelnut almond milk macchiato

Clayton Inman: Tall Pike Place

What do these answers reveal about the artists’ personalities? We will let you decide. But we do know one thing… a certain coffee shop serves these artists well. Maybe a sponsorship should be considered?

Stay tuned next time for another Wacky Wednesday!

11th Hour experiences memorable first trip to Canada

11th Hour

11th Hour member, Jaquita Lindsey, talks about the group’s first visit north of the border.

11th Hour had the privilege in July of this year of being part of Canada’s Gospel Music Celebration, held annually in Red Deer, Alta. This event is comparable to our National Quartet Convention that is held in Pigeon Forge, TN.
Many great groups were in attendance for this year’s event, such as the Booth Brothers, Collingsworth family, Mark Trammell Quartet, Greater Vision, Triumphant Quartet and Legacy Five. We also had the opportunity to meet and hear a few Canadian groups.

Traveling to Canada was a first for Grant (Gibson), Amber (Eppinette) and I. We call Grant our world traveler, having visited about every state and several countries. But Red Deer was a first for us all. The people greeted us warmly and made us feel so special. Many friends came to our product table and wanted to put “faces to the voices they had been hearing on the radio”.

Gerald Wolfe, of Greater Vision, emceed the nightly concerts. He also held one of his Hymn Sings on Friday afternoon. Second Half Quartet sang a few songs to open up the sing. Stan Whitmire graced us with his phenomenal piano skills for the sing-a-long. 11th Hour was asked to sing “Love of God,” which Amber sang better than I had ever heard her. She laughed that it was because Stan was playing for her.
The only fun we had time for was Saturday morning when we spent a little time in downtown Calgary. Mark Trammell Quartet was in charge of Chapel that morning. Since we skipped it to “go have fun”, his guys turned our backdrop upside down and rearranged our product table. We all had a good laugh about it.

We hope to get invited back in the future to Canada’s Gospel Music Celebration. That trip was memorable for all three of us.

About 11th Hour

(http://11thhourgg.com/bio/, August 31, 2017)…In 2012, 11th Hour signed a recording contract with Crossroads Music Group. “The doors of opportunity that a recording contract opened up were incredible. We had a support that would help

us reach more and more people for the Kingdom,” says Amber. And with that support, 11th Hour has done just that. They’ve had multiple Top 10 hits and been nominated for numerous awards in Southern Gospel music such as Trio of the Year and Album of the Year, while Amber was nominated for Soprano of the Year. In 2014, 11th Hour took home the Sunrise Award at the SGN Scoops Diamond Awards. “It has been such an honor receiving support from people you respect and admire,” shares Amber. “God has so much more in store for us as we travel and bring glory to His name.”There’s so much more work to be done as these three continue to step out in faith. Amber, Grant, and Jaquita, are ready to go wherever the Lord opens doors, singing and proclaiming the good news of Jesus… Read more here.
