Southern Gospel Weekend


Creekside Gospel Music Convention


Written by Staff on August 16, 2019 – 1:59 pm -



Waynesville, NC – Dominion Agency has been proud to represent Timothy Noble for some time now, and we invite you to join us in congratulating he and Hosanna (Plath) Noble on their recent marriage! With this union, Timothy and Hosanna have also launched an incredibly dynamic duo ministry.

The couple met at National Quartet Convention in 2016, were engaged in the summer of 2018 and married on June 29, 2019. They performed together at National Quartet Convention in 2018, Timothy on the piano, singing and playing while Hosanna played the violin and won the hearts of the crowd and judges alike, earning them a trip to the main stage that evening. 

Timothy began playing piano at the tender age of three. The hymns he heard in church were his first choice of music, and by six years old, he was taking piano lessons and singing along as he played. He was only ten years old when he started traveling and performing with his family. His recording studio, Noble Sound Recording, is where he produces not only his own albums, but tracks and CD’s for other artists, as well.

Like her husband, Hosanna started music lessons at a very young age. At just five years old, she began taking music lessons. The violin is her instrument-of-choice. She has attended the Stamps-Baxter School of Music, studying voice under the guidance of Allison Speer. Hosanna traveled with her family, The Plath Family, for five years prior to her marriage to Timothy.

God has blessed this couple with not only an adoration for Him, but a desire to serve Him through their music ministry, bringing honor and glory to His name in all that they do.

Gospel Music Weekend Slated for Ohio

Gospel Music Weekend Slated for Ohio

Gospel Music Weekend Slated for Ohio

Rob Patz and Coastal Events are excited to announce that Gospel Music Weekend—Ohio is coming to Mansfield, Ohio, July 16-18, 2020.

Situated midway between Columbus and Cleveland and in the foothills of the Allegheny Plateau off of I-71, Mansfield will play host to one of several Gospel Music Weekend events planned for 2020 and 2021. As part of this grassroots movement, Patz is strategically beginning these events to feature mostly regional artists. “I want to see gospel music grow, and I believe that the way to do that is at the local level. Ohio has welcomed us with open arms, and we already have several exciting things planned for Gospel Music Weekend Ohio.”

The three day event will include concerts on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings as well as daytime showcases, workshops, special events, and Midnight Prayer. Some of the artists appearing from the Great Lakes Region are the hometown group, Diamond Award winning Gloryway Quartet, Ohio-based artists Ezekiel’s Call, The Bobby Jones Family, New Promise, Kristen Stanton, and Diamond Award nominees Justified Quartet and Matchless Grace from Michigan. Gospel Music Weekend Ohio will also be showcasing other talent from Michigan,
Indiana, and Ohio and introducing artists from outside the region to the state of Ohio.

In your visit to Mansfield, be sure to take the time in between concerts to check out the Richland Carrousel Park, featuring 52 hand-carved figures or Malabar Farm State Park, a 900-acre estate of Pulitzer Prize winner Louis Bromfield and the location of the nuptials of Hollywood icons Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. If you’re feeling really brave, schedule your tour of the Ohio State Reformatory which has made appearances in Hollywood movies The Shawshank Redemption, Air Force One, and Tango & Cash.

If you are an artist wishing to participate in Gospel Music Weekend or if you are a fan and
would like more information, please send an email to
Gospel Music Weekend events are anchored by Creekside, coming up October 27-31, 2019,
in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. To secure your hotel room, please call Rob Patz at 360-933-0741.

Joy Holden Releases New EP, Covered

Joy Holden Releases New EP, Covered

Spartanburg, SC – Christian singer and musician, Joy Holden, has announced the release of a new EP entitled Covered.  This project features some of the industry’s most recognized gospel songs, and is so named because it is a mix of “cover” songs. More importantly, she chose this name because it denotes that we are covered by the blood of Jesus. MCR Music stated, “What a fun project and what a joy to hear. Joy leaned into her soulful voice on this record.” Covered features gospel favorites Through The Fire, I Must Tell Jesus, Oh Happy Day, and others.

Joy has also announced her upcoming appearance at the Annual Harvest Festival at Dollywood on October 26 and 27, for 3 shows a day.  This will be her second appearance at the popular event, held every Fall at the Dollywood Theme Park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Joy will be appearing with her two full time background vocalists, Shana Parris and Lisa Pruitt, alongside some top industry musicians.

Of the event Joy said “It was the ministry highlight of 2018!  Hopefully we encouraged some folks to turn to Jesus, and we were so blessed by the stories the audience members shared with us after each show.”

Joy Holden, an experienced music veteran is bringing her talent and expertise to the Southern Gospel arena. She has been described as a fresh modern sound in Christian music. Pure, rich and soulful, her music inspires through both song and story. She surrounds herself with some of the finest musicians on the scene today, giving her an added performance edge during her live shows.

In other exciting news, Joy’s newest release “Under Water” has reached the number 67 spot in the Singing News Top 80 charts for August. This is a huge achievement for the relative newcomer, and shows her growing popularity and accomplishment as a Christian artist.

Oxford, AL  – It is with deep sadness that we announce the departure of Baritone Vocalist Chris Fugatt. Chris joined Clearvision in June of 2018.

Group Manager Steve Dover states, “Chris notified me recently of his desire to come off the road. Ongoing health concerns were making it harder for him to travel and keep our schedule. Chris reluctantly felt it was time to step aside and his resignation was accepted without dispute.” Dover added, “Chris has been a joy to travel with. We knew when we were looking for someone that we needed a vocalist who could hit the ground running. Chris came to us with 30+ years of experience with his family group and he fit right into our family as well. His personality was a perfect match and his vocal abilities were unequaled in all the ones we auditioned. While I hate to see him go I totally understand the toll traveling has put on him. Thankfully, during our down-time, he has been able to become more active in his local church and I support that completely. He and Tina are getting married in October and we wish them all the best. He will be missed but will always be a huge part of the Clearvision family.”

When asked about his time with Clearvision, Chris stated “I have some great memories and have had the greatest time getting to share the stage with 3 awesome guys. These guys are some of the best friends anyone could have. I hope whoever fills the position can feel the love we have felt.”

Clearvision will begin accepting applications immediately for this opening. Anyone interested in being considered for this position must submit an email to The email should consist of a brief bio along with an mp3 clip to be considered. A YouTube link to a recent performance will also be considered. You must be a born-again Christian, be able to sing and hear parts. You must be able to practice weekly and live within a reasonable commute to Oxford, AL. We currently travel 40+ weekends a year. No phone calls or private messages please.

Chris will travel with Clearvision through the month of August. Please remain in prayer for Chris, his family, and Clearvision. God Bless.
