For almost seven years, Nicole contributed her vocal ability to the group, The Perry's, where she was nominated for 7 Favorite Soprano awards and for the Horizon Individual award at the Singing News Fan Awards. During her tenure, Nicole was known for several of The Perry's #1 songs, including their very first #1 song, "Not Even A Stone". Nicole has also appeared on The Gaither Homecoming Concerts and Videos, at Dollywood and the National Quartet Convention, and multiple Gospel television networks. Now, along side her husband Mark and daughter Sydney, they Pastor Restoration Church in Auburn, AL.
John Darin Rowsey is a Dove Award winning singer/songwriter who traveled with Karen Peck and New River from December of 1999 until coming off the road in January of 2003. Since then, he directed one of the top music programs in the nation, and he continues to write for Daywind Music Publishing. Some of his songs include "Singing With the Saints" for the Gatither Vocal Band, "Joy's Gonna Come In The Morning" for the Kingsmen and "Hey!" for Karen Peck & New River.
Gina Bean is the featured soloist for Voice of Evangelism, an international ministry, and has traveled the globe with renowned Bible prophecy teacher Perry Stone. Gina and husband Larry do select dates outside of their duties with VOE as well. Gina has penned multiple songs in Southern Gospel Music as well, including the number one song "Just One Touch" for Karen Peck & New River.
These solo artists have combined their efforts to write and record a song specifically designed to honor Southern Gospel radio, called "Turn Your Radio On". Rowsey states, "The Internet is a great tool and iTunes and other technologies have become a staple. But we were raised on Southern Gospel music on the radio. And there's nothing like rolling down the windows in your car and turning up the radio with a great Gospel song on a warm summer day."
