Brad White ministers in Mongolia

Brad White ministers in Mongolia

Brad White ministers in Mongolia

Brad White, known to southern gospel fans for his years as the lightning fingered pianist and baritone of the Blackwood Brothers, has taken southern gospel to regions unknown.

Earlier this month, Brad performed in Ulaanbaatar in Outer Mongolia.  On the first night of the trip, the low was -27F with people telling him that it was a heat wave where lows had been dipping near -40F in late November.
Mongolia is one of the most unchurched countries on earth.  In 1990, when the communist government fell, American missionaries could only document 4 evangelical Christians.  Today, estimates range from 40,000 to 50,000.  The people were all smiles when Brad introduced them to 4 part harmony with his one man quartet.
Brad left the Blackwood Brothers at the end of 2009 as he felt the call to return to his solo ministry with a focus on international missions.  He is probably the most traveled southern gospel artist in the world having been in 104 nations.

(Johnson City, TN)… Those who know Mark Lowry best will attest that the comedic genius is a rather complex individual. As Kevin Williams, his long-time friend and the producer of Lowry’s latest recording has stated, “Mark is funny, serious, simple, complex, in the moment and in the future, all at the same time.” Mark would attribute this complexity to his ADHD diagnosis, but those who know him well simply attest that Mark just loves life and all the complexities that come with living life to the fullest and making each day count.

Over the years, Mark has shared the stage with many of the most elite singers and musicians to ever grace a concert stage. He was a member of the famed Gaither Vocal Band for over 20 years and has also teamed with the likes of The Martins, The Isaacs, Chonda Pierce and Michael W. Smith to create musical harmony that is loved by audiences of all ages. In the Spring of 2017, Lowry will once again team with three of music’s elite as he partners with newly formed musical trio, Cana’s Voice to present the “Diapers To Depends” Tour. “Yes, you read correctly,” Lowry says smiling. “We are indeed calling this the Diapers To Depends Tour because our goal is to attract everyone. I thought about calling it ‘from babies in walkers to Grannies in walkers’, but we settled on Diapers To Depends,” Lowry laughs.

This event indeed will, no doubt, attract listeners of all ages, as it will be a night the entire family will enjoy, regardless of stylistic preferences. Comprised of iconic Gospel singers, Jody McBrayer (formerly of Avalon), TaRanda Greene (formerly of The Greenes) and Doug Anderson (formerly of Signature Sound), Cana’s Voice is quickly capturing the attention of music lovers from varying genres. In late summer, the trio released their very first recording, “This Changes Everything,” comprised of 13 songs, selected by design to offer encouragement to those who may feel they are in a hopeless situation, living in a hopeless world. “Our desire is to use each opportunity we are given to help audiences and listeners understand the importance of pressing on through hard time and believing that God has a great plan,” McBrayer states. “We look forward to the opportunity this Tour with Mark will offer us. Our desire is to use this platform to help change the lives of many people by sharing with them God’s mercy and grace.”

The Diapers To Depends Tour will take place in many cities nationwide throughout 2017. IMC Concerts will serve as Tour promoter and will be offering General Admission Seating, as well as Artist Circle Seating and a variety of Family Packages, in addition to VIP tickets, allowing concert attendees early admittance, preferred seating, a private exclusive question and answer session with the artists, and a souvenir autographed tour lanyard. In addition to Lowry and Cana’s Voice, the Tour will also feature multi-talented pianist, Stan Whitmire. “I am so excited to be on the road with my dear friends and incredible singers and the powerful voices of TaRanda, Jody and Doug. The icing on the cake is that we have the greatest pianist in Gospel music with us in Stan Whitmire. It truly is a night for the whole family to enjoy.

Exodus Adds Vocalist Cole Watson to Lineup

Exodus Adds Vocalist Cole Watson to Lineup

Exodus Adds Vocalist Cole Watson to Lineup

Gadsden Alabama  Exodus, a popular, fast rising gospel group from Gadsden, Alabama, recently announced the addition of Cole Watson to their ministry. Already known for their smooth vocals, the addition of Watson gives the group an even more dynamic and versatile sound that is sure to resonate with listeners.

Exodus has been blessed with charting songs, award nominations, and over 130 performances in 2016. These include top events, television appearances and conventions. They have been a special guest on WATC-TV in Atlanta, and are scheduled to appear on the nationally televised program, Harmony Road TV. Plans are being made for more television appearances as they prepare for the release of their new CD project in a few weeks.

While he may be a new face to Southern Gospel, Cole Watson has a deep connection to the genre. He grew up listening to his grandparents sing gospel music, and considers that a huge influence in his life. More recently, Cole had occasionally joined Exodus in concert and was well received. Joining the group was a natural progression for Watson, as he joined his father Mike Watson, as the fourth member of the group.

“I am excited, and feel blessed, to have Cole join us as a member of Exodus,” said Mike Watson. “Every parent loves seeing a child do what he enjoys, and having Cole join us as we spread the word through music, is exceptionally gratifying.  I’m thankful to the Lord for leading Cole in this direction, and even more thankful that Cole has a passion to share the message of Christ.”

When Exodus performed at the Smokehouse Gospel Music Theater this summer, one the highlights of the evening was a song by Cole, along with Exodus. “It’s exciting to see Cole join the group as its fourth member. Exodus was definitely a hit at the concert, and Cole adds a new dimension to their sound,” said Roger Spears, of Harmony Road TV.

To learn more about Exodus, including booking and contact information, go to, or follow them on Facebook at exodus.southerngospel.
