OAK GROVE, Ark. â€“ Diamond Award winning trio 2nd Generation is excited to announce the addition of Jonathan Edwards as the groupâ€™s new vocalist.
â€œWe are so excited about bringing Jonathan on as our new singer,â€ mentioned Brenda Denney of 2nd Generation. â€œJonathan has been a long time supporter of the group and is very familiar with our ministry and musical style. We know that he is going to do a great job, and we canâ€™t wait to hit the road with him!â€
Jonathan is known well in Southern Gospel circles. In addition to making a name for himself for several years as a part of the Ascension Quartet, Jonathan is one of Southern Gospelâ€™s most beloved DJs. He works as the drive-time DJ for KWFC-FM in Springfield, Missouri every week.
Jonathan Edwards said, â€œI have become such great friends with Brenda and Elaine over the last few years. When this position came open, I was excited about possibly working with these ladies on a full-time basis. Weâ€™ve got some exciting things planned for the near future, and I canâ€™t wait to be a part of it!â€
Jonathan is filling the position that was recently vacated by Jimmy Hoskins. Jimmy left the group to pursue a new ministry with his family.
Jonathan will join 2nd Generation on the road starting this weekend.
Fans are encouraged to be listening for 2nd Generationâ€™s new single, â€œIâ€™ll Not Fear the Crossing,â€ at Southern Gospel radio.
