Beyond The Ashes Is Happy To Announce A Precious New Addition For Lead Singer, Casey Rivers

Written by Scoops Staff on May 22, 2010 – 8:54 am -

Nashville, TN (May 21, 2010) – Beyond The Ashes is happy to congratulate lead singer, Casey Rivers, his wife, Doni, and daughter, Audra, on the addition of a brand new baby boy, Stellan Rivers, to their family.

Stellan was welcomed into the world on Sunday, May 16th, 2010.  He weighted 6lbs 8 oz. and was 19 ¾ in. long. Casey was at home to be with his wife and family when it was time to head to the hospital for this monumental event in their lives.  Casey expressed. “Through the birth of my sweet baby girl, Audra, and precious newborn baby boy, Stellan, the depth of God’s love is clearer to me than ever before!”

Group owner and tenor singer for Beyond The Ashes, Anthony Facello, shared, “We truly believe that family is the greatest ministry ever given to someone, and with the suspicion that the little guy may make his appearance a bit early, I felt it best to have Casey stay near home. It’s easier to find a fill in for a singing group than it is to find a fill in for the daddy.”  Stellan made an appearance, even before his dad, on the overhead screens, at Grace Fellowship Church in London, KY just hours after his arrival.

To send letters of congratulations to the Rivers family, email beyondtheashes@beyondtheashesonline.com or mail Beyond The Ashes / ATTN: Casey Rivers / 2817 West End Ave. Ste. 126-153
