Are you one of the many Southern Gospel fans that enjoy family groups? If so, then the Kent Curtis Family is one group that you need to hear! Kent sings with his wife Lea Anna, son Nathan and daughter Neeka. Kent Curtis pastors a church in McEwen, Tennessee, and is the lead singer, emcee and patriarch of the group. Lea Anna sings the soprano part and manages the Kent Curtis Family office. Nathan is the bass singer and soundman. Neeka fills in the alto position, manages the product and is also a budding photo-journalist, as she recently shot some video spots for SGN Scoops while attending the Singing In The Sun concert event.
We recently took the opportunity to find out more about this lovely young lady.
Rob: Tell us about Neeka Curtis. What should we know about you?
Neeka: I’m 17 years old and a junior in high school. I am homeschooled, so that makes traveling easier. My dad pastors the Open Bible Assembly church in McEwen, TN. When not busy with schooling, traveling, or church work, I enjoy styling hair and drawing Disney characters!
Rob: How long have you been singing and who do you sing with?
Neeka: I sing with my mom, dad, and brother as the Kent Curtis Family. I started singing as soon as I could talk, but joined them on stage around age five.
Rob: Tell us about traveling and singing with your family…
Neeka: We enjoy singing at various churches for concerts, revivals, and other events. Our goal is to show the love of the Lord to everyone we meet, encourage the saints, and win people to Him!
Rob: When in the road, where is your favorite place to eat?
Neeka: Chick-Fil-A. Hands down. It’s just good!
Rob: Tell me about a special moment in your singing career…
Neeka: I have many special memories, but the one that stands out the most is when we went to a Karen Peck and New River concert at a local church and I was honored to get to sing a chorus of “Four Days Late” with her. I will never forget that!
We hope you enjoyed learning more about the Kent Curtis Family and young Neeka Curtis. Please visit them on the web and on Facebook to find out more and listen to their music. Don’t be surprised if you attend one of their concerts and Neeka wants to interview you on camera for SGN Scoops! Thanks Neeka!
