Cleveland, TN  AG Publicity is proud to announce the signing of, an inspiring and anointed man of God known for his dynamic preaching and singing, to an extensive publicity contract. John has received multiple top ten and top five nominations for various awards as presented by The Singing News Fan Awards, The SGM Fan Awards, ICGMA’s Gold Cross Awards and The Diamond Awards. In 2007, the SGM Fan Awards honored John as “Favorite Soloist” as voted by Gospel music fans. In 2010, John was the recipient of “Favorite Tenor” as a member of Tony Gore & Majesty.

“I’ve known Deon Unthank for years and I’m glad to finally be able to work with him and AG Publicty. They have a great reputation in the world of Gospel music and I’m sure we can go far together.” Lanier said.

Unthank commented “John Lanier has been a friend for a long time and I am still impressed with the amount of energy his ministers with night after night. Watching John on stage is contagious. I always find myself moving my hands and feet and almost jumping up and down like John does. He preaches with the same enthusiasm.

As a singer, John exuberates the joy of serving Jesus Christ and encourages believers to worship freely. As an evangelist, John’s passion is to win the lost to Jesus Christ and to rekindle the fires of revival in the church.

John began his singing career in 1989 as a vocalist with Naomi & The Segos. In 1993, he relocated to Alabama and joined friends Tony Gore and Calvin Thornton to form the new trio, Tony Gore & Majesty.

John will be celebrating 25 years of Ministry with old fashioned campmeeting style services in Oxford, Alabama on August 8th and 9th. There will be great singing and preaching with amazing concerts after each service. Make plans to attend now.

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on March 15, 2011 – 2:20 pm -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (March 15, 2011) – Southern Gospel favorites The Freemans have received three nominations in the 2011 SGM Fan Fair Awards. The SGM FanFair Awards nominees were announced earlier this month in a press release announcement.

The Freemans collectively received a nomination for Favorite Song of the Year (for their #1 hit “The Father & the Son”).  Meanwhile, group matriarch Chris Freeman landed two individual nominations – Favorite Alto and Naomi Sego Living Legend Award.

The group won Favorite Song (for “Three Rugged Crosses”) and Favorite Alto (Chris Freeman) at last year’s awards ceremony.

“WOW! What a great surprise for us,” mentioned Chris Freeman. “We are so honored that our friends continue to name us among their favorites! Thank you to everyone who placed a vote for us! It means the world to us!”

The nominees in the SGM FanFair Awards were chosen by the readers of Christian Voice Magazine and attendees of the SGM FanFair.  The winners for the awards will be announced on Thursday, May 5, 2011 at the Smoky Mountain Convention Center in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee at the 7th Annual SGM FanFair.

These nominations come on the heels of the group’s impressive six nominations in the upcoming 2011 Absolutely Gospel Music Awards.  The group earned nominations for Song of the Year and Country Song of the Year (also for “The Father & the Son”), Album of the Year and Country Album of the Year (for Evidence), and Best Live Performer. Chris Freeman also garnered her first nomination for Female Vocalist of the Year this year as well.

The Freemans recently scored their latest #1 single with the lyric driven and poignant song “The Father & the Son.” Penned by celebrated songwriter Dianne Wilkinson, “The Father & the Son” spent four consecutive weeks at #1 on the (formerly Top 40 Weekly Chart – the Southern Gospel’s most watched and respected weekly radio report.

“The Father & the Son” is the debut single from The Freeman’s much-anticipated new recording – Evidence. Four years in the making, Evidence is truly The Freemans’ most transparent and emotional release to date. Evidence features songs that were chosen in response to four pivotal years for the group, which were mired with multiple family deaths and extremely personal losses for individual group members. Those events took the group on an emotional journey that resonates throughout the new recording.

Evidence is now available at concert events and on The Freemans’ website.
