Written by SGN Scoops on September 3, 2013 – 1:29 pm -

manSinger/songwriter, husband and wife duo Brian and Angela Monehan, recently completed shooting two debut concept videos in Historic Natchez, MS. The concept videos will highlight two songs from their ‘Lyrics of Our Lives’ project;“Miracles Every Day” and “Where My Heart Longs To Be”.
Brian and Angela are not new to Southern Gospel as Brian spent several years touring with Kevin Spencer & Friends and Angela toured many years with her family, The Perry Sisters. For much of the past 9 years they have served as pastors at churches in Little Rock, AR and Natchez, MS.
Over the years Brian and Angela have continued to sing and write songs and have developed that unique husband and wife harmony that is easily identifiable when you hear their music. For the past 2 years they have had a publishing relationship with Mansion Entertainment and continue to perform their music in concerts and conferences. The duo’s current radio single, released last month to Southern Gospel radio via Mansion Radio Hits Volume 8, is “Lord I Wanna To Be Ready”. Brian has also authored book based on his ministry experience that released this week entitled “A God Sized Ministry”. The focus of the book is about the extraordinary ministry that God can do through ordinary people. The book will be released in ebook format and is available through Pathway Bookstore and at brianandangelamonehan.com.
The video production was done in conjunction with PEBN (Pathway Enterprises Broadcasting Network) under the direction of John Mathis. PEBN currently produces several popular Southern Gospel and Inspirational Country TV shows that are seen on several major national networks such as Daystar, TNN, RURAL TV and others. ‘SpiritFest’, ‘Nashville Country Revival’ and ‘America Sings’ are some of the most popular PEBN produced shows.
Release of both videos is scheduled for mid-to-late September via social media and television programs. Gospel television programs interested in acquiring concept videos such as these that are produced by PEBN should contact John Mathis for distribution information; jmathis@themansionentertainment.com.
Production was shot on location in downtown Natchez and at the historic Monmouth Plantation, an antebellum style home originally built in 1818. The Monmouth is now a beautiful historic inn where visitors can spend the night in elegant rooms, enjoy fine Southern dining and tour the beautiful gardens and grounds during their stay.
