MARK LOWRY 8X10Atlanta, GA – Christian music concert promoter, CNS Entertainment has announced plans to host an exciting Winter concert event, featuring popular Christian comedian, singer, songwriter, Mark Lowry, and special guests, The Nelons and The LeFevre Quartet. This exciting evening will take place at the Trinity Baptist Church, located at 800 Hammond Drive in Jacksonville, FL, on Thursday, January 30 at 7:00pm.

Mark Lowry is known and loved around the world as a trusted voice in the realm of Gospel music and beyond. His legacy is forever sealed as an innately entertaining communicator who can, at once, make audiences laugh, cry and think. Mark is a singer, storyteller, humorist, author and songwriter, whose lyric to “Mary Did You Know?” resulted in one of the most loved modern Christmas songs of this century.  This captivating song, which he co-wrote with Buddy Greene, has been recorded more than 400 times by artists from every genre. Mark has spent more than 20 collective years with the Grammy-award-winning Gaither Vocal Band serving as the sidesplitting comedic sidekick for Bill Gaither through live concert tours and the best-selling Gaither Homecoming video series and television airings (now more than 150 volumes strong). A deep thinker and student of theology with an outrageous sense of humor, Mark’s life work includes a long list of recordings and DVDs reflecting a wide range of influences. Mark’s on-stage antics and music will, no doubt, delight all those attending this exciting evening.

For three decades, The Nelons have been bridging the traditional sounds of Southern Gospel with contemporary Nelons 2011 Ainfluences that inspire listeners of all ages. The group, who has enjoyed much success as a part of the prestigious Gaither Homecoming Tour and Video Series, continues to cross generational gaps, presenting rich harmonies that have been embraced by audiences from all walks of life.

The LeFevre name has been synonomous with Gospel Music for the past century. In 1921, the original LeFevre Trio began traveling and singing across the country and set the standard for quality and professionalism in what would become known as Southern Gospel Music. For decades, the LeFevres blazed new trails in Gospel Music turning out songs and singers that would become legendary. Today, the LeFevre name is stronger than ever. The LeFevre Quartet has received numerous award nominations and honors and delights audiences night after night with their smooth, rich harmony as the Quartet continue the tradition of the LeFevre family heritage.
This Winter concert event will be one the entire family will enjoy, and will provide a wonderful way to kick off the new year. Make plans now to join Mark Lowry, The Nelons and The Lefevre Quartet at the Trinity Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL, on January 30 at 7:00pm. Complete information is available online at Tickets may also be purchased by calling 800-965-9324
