Karen Peck And New River Releasing New Single To Radio

Written by Staff on February 23, 2015 – 11:36 am -

Karen Peck and New River 2015-5Dahlonega, GA (February 23, 2015) Dove Award winning Gospel Trio, Karen Peck and New River is ready to release the first single from their new project Pray Now. The single is the title cut of the album and encourages all of us in times of trouble to Pray Now. The single is set to be released this week by Daywind Radio.

“Pray Now” was written by Karen Peck Gooch, Michael Farren and Dave Clark. It was inspired by Karen feeling a strong urgency to pray the Lord’s Prayer and hoping to inspire others to pray in their times of struggle when they are facing life’s biggest storms.

Karen Peck stated, “Over the past year we have said the Lord’s Prayer every day. Sometimes several times a day. We can honestly say that it has strengthened our prayer lives immensely. When we recorded “Pray Now” we had no idea what we would be facing now. The song is very timely. We pray that it will encourage people to keep praying and believing the Lord for great things ahead.”
Please help Karen, Susan and Jeff spread the word by using this suggested Hashtag for social media: #PrayNowLordsPrayer .

An Open Letter From Karen Peck Gooch

Written by Staff on February 19, 2015 – 1:22 pm -

Rickey and Karen Peck Gooch

Rickey and Karen Peck Gooch

February 19, 2015
Hey Friends:)

My husband, Rickey Gooch, is the strongest and hardest working man I know. It is an honor and a blessing to be his wife.
A few weeks ago, Rickey discovered a knot in his neck. After consultation with his doctor Rickey was prescribed two rounds of antibiotics. After the knot did not go away, additional testing was ordered.

After a neck scan, two biopsies, a CT scan and a PET scan, Rickey was diagnosed with squamous carcinoma, a type of cancer. Thank the Lord, the cancer is confined to Rickey’s left tonsil area and has not spread anywhere else within his body. As a result of this diagnosis, Rickey will begin a series of treatments in the coming days. The doctors feel very confident that the treatments will be successful and this will soon be behind us.

During the weeks Rickey and I have been dealing with this, the Lord has shown us such mercy and grace. He has reminded us of His sovereignty and even when we were at our lowest, we could feel His loving arms wrapping around us and covering us with peace that surpasses all understanding. Truthfully, we would not have made it this far without the Lord. Even though we are devastated, we realize the Lord is strengthening us more every day as we move forward.

Because of this situation Rickey and I stayed home for a few days to attend doctors appointments. We are so proud of our group, though, as they continued to travel to honor our commitments. Rickey and I want to offer our sincere appreciation to Katy Peach for filling in for me and doing an amazing job. Also, we give special thanks to Susan, Jeff, Matthew, Kari, Tripp King, and Danny Jones for stepping up and doing what needed to be done. Audiences were blessed and we were thrilled to learn that some even accepted Jesus as their Savior. Praise the Lord!

Rickey and I will be back on the road this weekend. We want to thank everyone for the love you have shown our family. We love y’all dearly. Please continue to pray for Rickey. We know that God will make this trial a blessing.

Karen Peck Gooch

Karen Peck stated, “We have put a lot of time and prayer in choosing the right songs for the new CD. Susan, Jeff, and I had some great anointed moments in the studio. Hopefully those “moments” were captured on tape. We are very excited about each song and we hope they will bring comfort and encouragement to everyone. Pray Now is the title of the album and is also the first radio single. We want to thank our producer, Wayne Haun, everyone at Daywind Music, Ed Leonard, Scott Godsey, Rick Shelton, Amanda Martin, Justin Kropf, and all the great writers for making this album possible. We love this season in our Ministry.”
