Weekend Word from SGN Scoops

Weekend Wors

Weekend Word

Have you ever attempted to tune in a radio station on an AM or FM radio? When the  tuner is not on the station, all we hear is static, but as we tune to the right frequency, the static fades and information from the station becomes clear.

This can be compared to our walk with God. Are you tuned in to Him or are the “other things” in your life causing static between you and Him?

Turn your radio on and Tune in to God! ❤️

Allison Speer And Ray Stevens

Nashville, TN – GRAMMY Award-winning musician Ray Stevens has recorded a song co-written by Gaither Homecoming artist, Allison Speer. “The Baptism Of Stumpy Brown,” originally released on Allison’s Whoo-Hoo, What A Ride! comedy DVD, was written with Cyrus “Buddy” Kalb, a staff writer for Ray Stevens Music. Kalb is a renowned songwriter best known for Ray Stevens hit, “Mississippi Squirrel Revival.”

Allison comments, “Having a song recorded by Mr. Stevens is a dream come true. As a kid, I remember listening to his music and memorizing all of the words. I’m thrilled by this news!” She added, “The song idea came about as I sat in a baptismal service and wondered about someone leaving more of his old man behind in the water than he intended. Buddy took the idea and ran with it!”

Ray Stevens will perform “The Baptism Of Stumpy Brown” on his new project, Here We Go Again, which will release on his Player label in mid-February, and will be distributed by Sony music.

Artists Join Together To Benefit The Southeast Tornado & Flood Victims

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on May 19, 2011 – 2:38 pm -

Hendersonville, TN (May 19, 2011) – That character was displayed when Christian and Country music artists came together Tuesday afternoon to lend their voices to the Somebody Cares for the Southeast Disaster Relief Benefit Special, hosted by Gary Chapman.  The two-hour special, collectively produced by Daywind Records, New Day Distribution, FamilyNet and NorthStar studios, was created to raise funds for Somebody Cares, a Christian organization that works hand in hand with the Red Cross, FEMA, the Salvation Army and others.  They currently have teams in Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and Virginia assisting with everything from serving meals, removing debris and providing counseling.   All of the artists, as well as the behind-the-scenes staff and crew, donated their time and talents to raise money for this organization, and in turn, make a difference to those affected by the deadly tornadoes.

Artists such as Danny Gokey, Michael English, Ray Stevens, Rachael Lampa, Karen Peck & New River, Montell Jordan and many others came out to support this great cause.   For some, the reason they chose to participate in this benefit was a personal one.   The accapella group, Committed, winner of NBC’s The Sing Off, were displaced from their homes in Huntsville, Alabama in the days following the storms.  Lora Poore of the up-and-coming group, Faith 3, witnessed the storm’s devastation first-hand when the only part of the house remaining was the interior closet she and her family were in.  These stories, and many more, will be included in the special, as these artists convey to viewers just how many families were personally affected by the storms.

“Today, I had the pleasure of interfacing with some who many would consider celebrity, yet who were willing to become part of something bigger than themselves to bring hope to those who have suffered so much in the recent tornado and flood stricken areas of our nation,” shares Doug Stringer, Founder and President of Somebody Cares America.  “Their investment to participate in the Somebody Cares for the Southeast Disaster Relief Special was filled with moments of authentic compassion filled with emotion and, at times, tears.   The sacrifice of their time will help to bring attention and awareness to the ongoing needs, even when most of the media shifts to other news stories.  It will help to leverage and empower organizations and churches in their communities to continue to be a tangible expression of Christ love.”

The benefit special will initially air on FamilyNet on Sunday, May 22nd at 7:00 pm ET, and will continue to air repeatedly on FamilyNet, American Life Network, and other Christian networks.  Check www.familynet.com or www.comstarmedia.com for more information on those airings.

To donate to this cause, simply text the word “icare” to 37284, or log onto www.somebodycares.org.  You will be able to donate any amount, and it is all 100 % tax deductable.  All of the proceeds go directly to Somebody Cares® to help the victims of this disaster.
