Sharron Kay King, SoGoStage to Produce Behind-the-Scenes of Concept Video

Written by Scoops Staff on April 26, 2010 – 9:13 am -

{Bellingham, WA} Rob Patz, Owner of SoGoStage.com and parent company, Coastal Media Group (which also owns SGNScoops.com), announced today that SoGoStage.com will be behind the scenes of a Sharron Kay King Driver “Christian concept video” scheduled for May, 2010 in Walker, LA.

Patz said, “I’m so excited to take SoGoStage to the set of this annointed artist’s video production. As Sharron’s own video will be filmed, SoGoStage.com will do our own “behind the scenes” shoot. Sharron’s success in her music ministry has not been an accident. She is continously trying to get the message of Christ out to a wider audience, and we want to be on location to document her delivery of that message and this monumental milestone in Sharron’s ministry.”

Dempsey Howard, originator of SoGoStage.com, remained on board with Patz, when Patz recently purchased the website, and notes, “I created the website to bring excellent music videos to fans and friends of this music we love. I am glad we have the capability to shoot this behind the scene footage of Sharron as her own production is being made.”

“It’s an exciting project.” Sharron added, “The ‘Christian Concept’ video is being filmed in conjunction with my latest single entitled, ‘Don’t Stop Believing,’ with the production expertise of Paul Catalanotto. In this day and time, people are having a hard time knowing what to believe, and we all need to be reminded to focus on God and the ‘word.’ My mission is that the single and video will challenge the listeners’ minds to not stop believing and to hold on to faith in these troubled times. It’s both a pleasure and honor to have SoGoStage.com video tape the process of my own film being made. I appreciate the faith Rob and Dempsey have in my ministry. This is what I believe in, and hopefully it will uplift and encourage those who are experiencing discouragement and a challenge to their faith. I’m looking forward to the possibilities and miracles that could come out of this project we are doing with my own film and appreciate SoGospelStage coming to Louisiana for this event. I hope the listening and viewing audience will enjoy the latest single, ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ with the associated video and the behind the scenes shoot that Rob and Dempsey are so good at doing.”
