“Declaration is very excited to be a part of the Creekside Gospel Music Convention,” said lead singer, Kasey Kemp. “Rob, Rhonda, Lorraine and all the folks of SGN Scoops are working hard to present a quality Christ-honoring event. We hope to see you folks there.”

“Bringing both Declaration and Promise to the stage of Creekside is a joy,” said Rob Patz, CEO of Coastal Media Group and publisher of SGN Scoops. “The fact that both groups have been nominated for 2012 Diamond Awards is a significant achievement and shows that these young Gospel artists have the talent and experience to take their music to audiences across the country and across the world.”
