Multi-Dove Award winning and Grammy nominated recording artist, The Nelons, will be featured on Saturday, March 4 during the Ladies Conference at 9 a.m. at the Calvary Baptist Church West Campus, 155 Commerce Drive, Advance.

The musical ministry of The Nelons was formed after family patriarch Rex Nelon had enjoyed a 20-year career as a member of the LeFevres. Throughout this 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 Gaither Homecoming Tour and Video Series, continues to cross generational gaps, presenting harmonies that have been embraced by audiences from all walks of life.

Joining the Nelons will be tfemale vocalist, Amber Nelon Thompson. Amber, who travels full-time with The Nelons, has established a solo career with multiple releases. She was named as 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,” said 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 songs.”
