Ringgold, GA (February 6, 2014)  Rhonda Frye is pleased to announce an addition to Rhonda Frye And Riverside.  Saran Chumley joins Rhonda, Lauren Huckabee and Jennifer Peace lending her soprano vocals to the IMG_0591progressive ladies group based out of North Georgia. Saran grew up in East Texas and was blessed with many musical opportunities. She sang in children’s choirs, participated in local plays and musicals and then earned a music degree from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, Texas. Saran currently teaches voice and piano lessons and is on staff at the Steve Hurst School of Music.

“I am absolutely thrilled,” Rhonda said. “I have wanted to put together an all ladies group for a long time. For one, an all-female vocal group is unique in sound, but this will also allow us to minister to ladies groups. Saran is a great fit to our ministry team. Our heart’s desire is to use music to help people experience a real and relevant relationship with Christ. From the day I met Saran, I knew there was something special about her and I also knew that someday we would minister together. That someday is now and I couldn’t be happier or more eager to see what God is going to do.”

Saran added, “I could not be more excited about this opportunity that God has placed in my life. These are the sweetest girls I have ever met. I have grown to love not only their voices and music, but their hearts for the ministry. I am so ready to dive in and see how the Lord is going to use Rhonda Frye and Riverside. I feel so honored, blessed, and thankful to be a part of this!”

Saran is coming on board right after Rhonda Frye and Riverside released their first national radio single, “Looking Out For You,” on Patterson Promotion’s  Compilation Disc Volume 13.  DJ’s can download the single at http://pattersonpromotions.com/.

I have been blessed with young ladies that can communicate the gospel effectively in song, in testimony and by example.” Rhonda continued, “I also prayed for a great song to record that would be up-beat and that would carry a strong message.  ‘Looking Out For You’ was a perfect fit musically for our personalities and is a strong message we love to share.”

Rhonda Frye and Riverside vocalist, Lauren Huckabee is new to the industry, but has quickly gained attention for her unique voice and charming stage presence. Jennifer Peace rounds out the trio adding a touch of vocal clarity and sweetness to the mix and brings a transparent sense of sincerity to the stage.

During the Diamond Awards performance, the ladies were joined on stage by the songwriter, Gerald Crabb. “I was blown away when I heard my song, ‘Looking Out For You’ by Rhonda Frye and Riverside,” commented Gerald Crabb. “It is great. This new trio is very good. You’re going to love their music and their spirit.”

With a fresh new sound, the future for Riverside looks bright. Producer Jeremy Peace explained, “There are so many new exciting artists that are arriving onto the scene in Gospel music and this one is certainly no exception. What a golden opportunity for these three women to begin their ministry within the Southern Gospel genre of music as it begins to experience a revival. Riverside has the tools and heart to fulfill their calling and I’m honored to be a part of it. Their new radio single is only the beginning of a long successful ministry in music. These girls bring it!”

The new single was shipped to radio in January and has been received well. “We are very proud at Patterson Promotions that Rhonda Frye and Riverside chose us for their national radio single,” Pauline Patterson stated. “They are young, talented and ready to do a BIG work for Jesus.
