Gospel Music Hall Of Fame Members To Be Featured In Lakeland

Posted on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at 1:00 am

Multi-Dove Award winning and Grammy nominated recording artist, The Nelons will be featured on Sunday, October 14 at 6:00pm at the Victory Church, located at 1401 Griffin Road in Lakeland, FL.
The ministry of The Nelons was formed after family patriarch Rex Nelon had already enjoyed a spectacular 20-year career as a member of the legendary LeFevres. Throughout this distinguished career hit songs have flowed their way in bunches. The Nelons, who were recently inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, have been singing hit songs, bridging the traditional sounds of Gospel music with contemporary influences, and inspiring listeners of all ages for decades. The group, who has enjoyed much success as a part of the prestigious Gaither Homecoming Tour and Video Series, continues to cross generational gaps, presenting rich harmonies that have been embraced by audiences from all walks of life. Most recently, the popular musical family earned the 2017 Gospel Music Association’s Dove Award for Bluegrass/Country/Roots Recorded Song of the Year for their hit release, “When Grandpa Sang Amazing Grace.”
Joining the Nelons will be talented, female vocalist, Amber Nelon Thompson. Amber, who travels full-time with The Nelons, has established an exciting solo career with multiple releases. She was named the youngest Dove Award nominee in history by the Gospel Music Association.
This exciting event with The Nelons and special guest, Amber Nelon Thompson, promises to be a night that will be enjoyed by Gospel music lovers of all ages. “It will be a lot of fun,” states Kelly Nelon Clark. “Not only will we be singing the classics that have stood the test of time, we will also share many wonderful and interesting stories behind these timeless songs.”
Make plans to be a part of this special musical event with The Nelons, at the Victory Church in Lakeland, FL, on Sunday, October 14 at 6:00pm. Complete information is available by calling 863-944-8729 or visiting www.thenelons.com
