Ackerman COG hosting concert

From Press Reports


Debra Perry & Jaidyn’s Call will be in concert Sept. 29 starting at 6 p.m. at the Ackerman Church of God.

The church is located at 8612 MS Highway 12. A love offering with be taken to further the group in its ministry.

Debra Perry & Jaidyn’s Call was started in 2010 by Christopher and Debra Perry Reed. They named their group in honor of their disabled grandson, Jaidyn, who has a condition called hydranencephaly and was told if he survived birth, he would probably pass away within the first year.

What a miracle the Lord has given, because Jaidyn turned 7 on Aug. 27. Jaidyn has no upper portion of his brain and is profoundly disabled. He can’t walk, talk or crawl and is blind, but has a laughter and smile that is so contagious and will light up any room. Jaidyn’s Call ministry is to sing but to also share the testimony of their journey with little Jaidyn and their daughter, Ashley.

Debra Perry & Jaidyn’s Call were the 2012 Regional Artist Showcase winners out of more than 250 groups and soloists. They have released their first radio single and now have had their first Top 80 song through the Singing News with their song “The Waiting Room.”

Debra Perry-Reed was the original soprano singer with her nationally known and award-winning family, The Perrys. She sang 18 years with The Perrys and was nominated twice in the Singing News Fan Awards for favorite soprano singer. She has now teamed up with her husband, who has sung professionally with nationally known groups. Zachary Smith is their tenor singer from Toccoa, Ga.
