Nelons in concert at Ackerman church

From Press Reports

The Nelons will be in concert at Ackerman Church of God on Sept. 16 starting at 6 p.m. for a gospel concert.

No admission charge, but a love offering will be taken for the Nelons. Call 552-7726 for more information.

With feet firmly planted in faith and family, drawing from the stream started by the Lefevres and carried on by Rex Nelon, Kelly, Jason and Amber crystallize a new vision for the Nelons’ three-decade gospel legacy.

With numerable awards and accolades including three GRAMMY nominations, six Gospel Music Association DOVE Awards and many songs that have soared to the top of national radio charts, this family trio continues to produce innovative music that embraces their traditional roots, while simultaneously reaching beyond various musical boundaries with an emphasis on introducing songs for the church.

All the while the Nelons bridge the generational gap of music lovers with incomparable harmonies and great songs. For Kelly Nelon Clark, singing alongside her husband, Jason Clark, and daughter, Amber Nelon Thompson, this is a full-circle moment as she reflects on the countless nights she shared the stage with her Hall-of-Fame father, Rex Nelon.

Today, the Nelons take all the elements you’ve come to expect from the group —unparalleled vocal excellence, a sound built on the interplay between a soaring soprano and Kelly’s emotional smooth alto with an intertwining tenor, and add impeccable tight family harmony with an uncanny gift of communicating God’s love and you have a worship experience that you’ll not soon forget.
