Gospel star Ivan Parker com­ing to New­born

The Covington News - - Local news -

The sounds of South­ern gospel mu­sic will ring out at 7 p. m. Oct. 4 at the Shiloh Bap­tist Church in New­born, as record­ing artist, Ivan Parker, will present a spe­cial con­cert.

Parker, who burst onto the South­ern gospel mu­sic scene in 1982, has spent more than 25 years min­is­ter­ing in churches and are­nas, shar­ing his tes­ti­mony and vo­cal tal­ents.

Trav­el­ing with pop­u­lar South­ern gospel quar­tet, Gold City, for more than 10 years, Ivan helped lead the group to na­tional ac­claim. The group achieved 19 top 10 hits, in­clud­ing the 1993 South­ern Gospel Song of the Year Dove Award from the Gospel Mu­sic As­so­ci­a­tion.

Since em­bark­ing on a solo ca­reer in 1994, Parker has con­tin­ued to en­joy promi­nence and suc­cess. Hit songs have flowed his way, as he has more than a dozen solo record­ings to his cred­its.

Ear­lier this year, Ivan en­joyed his first No. 1 hit. “ I Choose,” rec­og­nized in the Top 80 Ra­dio Air­play Chart of “ The Singing News Mag­a­zine.”

For the past decade Parker has been reg­u­larly fea­tured on the Bill Gaither Home­com­ing Video and Con­cert Se­ries, and in May 2008 the Gaither Gospel Se­ries re­leased The Best Of Ivan Parker Col­lec­tion in DVD and CD for­mat.

In­ducted into the Alabama Mu­sic Hall of Fame in 1993, he has re­ceived more than 20 Soloist and Male Vo­cal­ist of the Year Awards from a va­ri­ety of lead­ing fan and trade pub­li­ca­tions, in­clud­ing the 2007 Fan Award for Male Vo­cal­ist of the Year by sub­scribers of “ The Singing News Mag­a­zine,” South­ern gospel mu­sic’s lead­ing fan and trade pub­li­ca­tion, as well as the 2008 Fa­vorite Soloist Fan Award.

This spe­cial con­cert event, fea­tur­ing one of South­ern gospel mu­sic’s most rec­og­niz­able voices, Ivan Parker, prom­ises to be one to re­mem­ber.
