Multi-Dove Award Winning Recording Artists, The Nelons & Michael English Present Coastal Christmas Concert On December 17 In Sunset Beach
The smooth, rich sounds of multi-Dove Award winning and Grammy nominated recording artists, The Nelons and Michael English will be featured in Sunset Beach, NC, on Tuesday, December 17, at the Sea Trail Resort & Convention Center, as CNS Entertainment presents A Coastal Chrstimas music spectacular. This exciting event will begin at 7:00pm.
For three decades The Nelons (pictured below) have been bridging the traditional sounds of Southern Gospel with contemporary influences that inspires listeners of all ages. 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. The musical ministry of The Nelons was born in the late 1970s from a name that has been synonomous with Gospel Music for nearly a century.
Michael English is among the most powerful communicators in Gospel music. He learned early in life how to harmonize and communicate a song as part of a traveling musical group with his father and brother. Shortly after high school graduation, the North Carolina native joined his first full-time quartet, The Singing Americans, where he recorded an anthem that would become his signature song, “I Bowed On My Knees and Cried Holy.” Michael joined the Gaither Vocal Band in 1985 and his soulful, power-packed voice quickly launched him to the forefront of the Christian music world. In spite of his battles with stage fright and frequent panic attacks, Michael’s phenomenal gift for communication birthed a thriving solo career, which grew out of the popularity he gained with the Gaither Vocal Band. The popularity also led to multiple battles with various addictions and a spiral into a deep depression that he chronicles in his autobiography, The Prodigal Comes Home. After a life-changing encounter with God, and a renewed commitment to the calling placed on his life as a young boy growing up in North Carolina, Michael’s career has indeed come full circle, as he continues to share the message of hope and grace through Christ.
This Christmas music spectacular is sure to warm hearts and bring Christmas cheer to those attending this special Coastal Christmas. “We are so excited about this special concert,” states Kelly Nelon Clark of The Nelons. “Christmas is my favorite time of the year, and we are really looking forward to this special night. We just love Michael English and are thrilled to share this evening with him. We’ll sing a lot of classic Christmas standards, as well as some new Christmas songs. We’ll probably do quite a bit of laughing, maybe a little crying and definitely look forward to having a lot of fun, as we ring in the Christmas season at this special concert. It is going to be so much fun and we hope all our friends will join us for this special time, as we will make lots of new Christmas memories.”
The Nelons and Michael English will share their enouraging message of hope, faith and grace in this special Christmas musical evening in Sunset Beach, NC, at the Sea Trail Resort & Conveniton Center on Tuesday, December 17 at 7:00pm.
