Georgia Celebrates Recent Radio Success

Georgia Celebrates Recent Radio Success

(Coastal Ridge Communications) Orlando FL – Recently the trio known as Georgia, celebrated their recent radio success with friend and songwriter Dr. Pope. Georgia has been in Southern Gospel Music for over 40 years and is starting to see a resurgence on the charts. Over the last thirteen months, the group, which consists of Terry Dale, David Presley and Reggie Smallwood, has had three consecutive top 40 hit singles.

Terry Dale, owner and tenor singer, states, “We feel blessed that radio has embraced our music. My good friend and prolific songwriter, Dr. Pope, has written some great songs that we have been so thankful to be able to record and release nationally. Our group wants to thank him for all that he means to us.”

The group’s recent single, Do You Know Him, written by Dr. Pope, has been climbing the charts. “I just want to write songs that make a difference in people’s lives. I’ve had success in the secular world, but I have felt the Lord telling me to use my talents for Him”, adds Dr. Pope.

Shadrix Ministries – Changes

Shadrix Ministries - Changes

Shadrix Ministries – Changes

Carrollton, GA: Following the departure of Becky Miles in October 2016, Barry Shadrix and Dedra Henry of the Shadrix Trio began to pray about who God would send to fill the vacant alto position. Barry states, “We were blessed to have Becky as a key part of our ministry for over five years. After much prayer and seeking the Lords will, we asked Heather Wright from Albany, Georgia to fill in for a short time until we could audition and attain a singer. We immediately knew the Lord was moving us to ask her to join permanently. Heather previously sang with the Shadrix Trio from 2002-2005, so this is not unfamiliar territory. We are more than friends and ministry partners, we have become more like family.” Soon after, Jud Hurst from Lineville, Alabama agreed to join as well, thus filing a fourth position in the group. He provides one of the most amazing baritone voices you’ve ever heard; paired with his phenomenal piano playing essentially ended the search for the newest members of The Shadrix. Dedra says, “The orchestration of the Lord in the decision to move from a trio to a four-person group was simple. He spoke, and we obeyed. This shift in musical dynamic is exciting, and we can’t wait to let you hear this new, bold, anointed sound.
