 Nashville, TN (Feb 22, 2012) –Powerful vocal trio, Beyond The Ashes (BTA), is overwhelmed with gratitude with news of two prestigious DOVE AWARD nominations.  The Gospel Music Association (GMA) announced the nominees at a press conference held in Atlanta, GA this morning. The announcements were hosted by comedienne extraordinaire, Chonda Pierce.
The trio’s DOVE AWARD nominations include NEW ARTIST OF THE YEAR and CONTEMPORARY GOSPEL RECORDED SONG OF THE YEAR, “What I Have I Give,” written by Wayne Haun, Joel Lindsey, and Depp Britt. The nominated song is from the album, Treasures Unseen, produced by Haun on Vine Records.
Group members Anthony Facello, Casey Rivers, and Kellan Monroe are beyond blessed by all God is doing in their ministry. These nominations have “almost” left them speechless, but BTA owner and tenor singer, Facello, tried to sum up the emotions as he shared; “We are stunned, overwhelmed, and absolutely thrilled with this tremendous news. The last 12 months have been quite a rollercoaster as we experienced successes and, also, some tough trials.  The best part has been seeing souls trust Christ and lives changed forever.  The hardest parts are tests of faith in moving forward, like when our bus caught on fire and we lost just about everything inside, including the transporation itself.  But, what GOD has proven, and continues to prove over and again, is, HE IS FAITHFUL. There is no trial He doesn’t understand and there are no victories more important than the spiritual ones we encounter as we continue to press on and serve Him in this ministry. Knowing we have received these nominations only fuels our desire to take it to the next level in this ministry and to really pray that accolades like a DOVE nomination (and, if it comes, a DOVE AWARD) will only open more opportunity to reach out to the hearts of hurting and lost people.  WOW…THANK you everyone!”
The news of the nominations follows so many other incredible areas of growth for this talented group of guys, including their recent and first top 10 song, “The Coming Of The King.”  Their new single, “Whenever We Pray,” is poised to be another chart busting hit.  Both songs can be found on Treasure Unseen.

Beyond The Ashes Celebrates The Release Of Treasures Unseen

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on May 2, 2011 – 4:52 pm -

(L to R) Group members; Anthony Facello, Kellan Monroe, and Casey Rivers, with Sophia Davis (booking), Donna Beauvais (PR), Buck Rambo, Kevin Ward (Vine Records), Rhonda Thompson (radio), Cindy Ballard (Vine Records), Wayne Haun (Producer), Lyn Rowell (songwriter)

Nashville, TN  – Breakthrough Artist Of The Year, Beyond The Ashes, celebrated the release of their brand new recording, Treasures Unseen, last night in Nashville, TN.  Family, friends, and industry professional gathered at Anchor Church on 3rd Ave. and listened to music from the album, as well as a live performance, from the dynamic vocal trio.  Guests also enjoyed great food and fellowship with group members, Anthony Facello, Casey Rivers, and Kellan Monroe.

Their brand new single from the Vine Records recording, “The Coming Of The King” made its debut at Christian radio stations around the world last month and landed in the Top 10 New Releases across the country at #6.
Award-winning producer of Treasures Unseen, Wayne Haun, commented following the listening event. “I’ve heard it said, ‘there’s nothing like family harmony.’ If these guys aren’t blood brothers, they could’ve fooled me tonight. This recording is great, but their live performance takes the cake!”   Group’s founder and tenor singer, Anthony Facello, expressed, “Our hearts continue to be overwhelmed by the love and support being shown to this ministry.  Looking across the crowd that gathered last night to celebrate this release with us was truly a humbling experience.  We can’t wait to see what God has in store as He continues to open doors for us to sing to people about His love. Witnessing what He is doing in our midst makes us very aware that He does have treasures unseen for each and every one of us.  We want to say a sincere thank you for our family, friends, and those helping to move this effort forward along side us. We could not do it without you.”
Treasures Unseen is now available at Christian Retailers and iTunes through Crossroads Entertainment & Marketing, Inc.
