HIXSON, Tenn. (Jan. 31, 2014)Â â€“ Dynamic vocal trio the Pelfreys have released their first single, entitled â€œGlorious,â€ to Southern Gospel radio. It’s the group’s first release since they reformed following Jerry Pelfrey’s departure from the award-winning Gold City quartet in October. Pelfrey was featured on Gold City’s hit single â€œLord of Life,â€ which reached the No. 2 position on the Singing News Magazine Top-80 Chart in November of 2012.
â€œGloriousâ€ is an up-beat, high-energy single that was produced by David Staton and written by Staton, Kenna West and Lee Black. â€œGloriousâ€ is the first release from the Pelfreys’ upcoming project, â€œWho Is Jesus To You?â€
â€œWe just want people to catch on to the fact of who Jesus is,â€ Jerry Pelfrey â€“ the group’s manager â€“ explained. â€œThere was a huge fad of What What Would Jesus Do over the past few years. Our question is, how are you going to know what He would do unless you know who He is? We want this song to point people to Him and to get to know Him more.â€
The Pelfreys are comprised of lead singer Jerry Pelfrey, Jerry’s wife and alto singer Mikki Johnson Pelfrey and Jerry’s sister and soprano singer Kim Pelfrey VanHoozier.
Positive responses are already flooding in regarding â€œGlorious.â€ â€œIt sounds awesome,â€ Randy Catoe â€“ the general manager of WSTS 100.9 The Cross in Fairmont N.C. â€“ emphasized. â€œI love the fact that the song is God-glorifying and Christ-exalting.â€ WSTS 100.9 The Cross on-air personality Brandon â€œMonkâ€ Boone added, â€œI absolutely love the song. The harmonies are incredibly tight with a complex arrangement. It is a spot-on radio single if I’ve ever heard one. If I turn that on, I’m locking in. It uplifts and honors God.â€
Staton is producing â€œWho Is Jesus To You?â€ It is targeted for a spring release. â€œGloriousâ€ was sent to all Southern Gospel-charting radio stations in January. It is on Staton’s RPM Compilation, Volume 1. â€œThis song fulfills our mission,â€ Jerry Pelfrey pointed out. â€œIt reminds us that He is our Glorious Risen Savior and Victorious Mighty King.â€
The Pelfreys have performed with the same vocal configuration that the group had when the trio last toured together, in 2008.
