Gadsden, Alabama It has been said that unexpected change can lead to special blessings. The Southern Gospel group Exodus, from Gadsden, Alabama, has experienced that during this past year.
In 2016, while enjoying success in concerts, radio airplay and other appearances, Exodus added Cole Watson to the group. Cole is the son of founding member Mike Watson. He immediately blended in, singing along with his dad and the other group members, Susan Brady and Mary Scott. They recorded a new project with award winning producer Rick Sandidge, and continued to gain recognition as they shared the gospel across the region. Then came Cole’s opportunity to step in and make an even bigger impact with Exodus.
In the spring of 2017, Mike Watson was diagnosed with cancer and had extensive surgery to remove a tumor from his jaw. He is recuperating at home, and unable to travel with Exodus at this time. However, with the addition of Cole to the lineup, Exodus continues to share the Word in song, as they minister in churches, concerts and TV appearances, presenting their patented sound featuring tight harmonies, exciting vocals and inspirational lyrics. They are scheduled to perform at Dollywood this fall, as well as other high profile events. The group recently hosted their fifth anniversary concert “A Night of Praise,” where they, along with other top gospel artists, sang a large and enthusiastic crowd.
Their current single, “God of Always and Never,” penned by renowned songwriters Jason Cox, Sue Smith and Jessica Campbell, is beginning to garner airplay as it impacts Southern Gospel Radio across the country.
When asked about Exodus and the single, Jan Puryear, of Jan Puryear Promotions, said “Exodus-a group that sings what they believe, and believes what they sing. Their new single ‘God of Always and Never’ reminds us all that God is always there, no matter what.” She continued, “’He never falters, He never fails, He always comes through and He always prevails’, are words to hang on to and to live by. I’m so excited to release this great song to radio, another inspiring song from the ministry of Exodus.”
Everyone is encouraged to pray for Mike Watson as he recovers and to pray for the ministry of Exodus, as they spread the gospel through music.
