Ivan Parker Is ‘Dancing In The Rain’ New Project

ivanparkerNASHVILLE, Tenn.—Dancing in the Rain, the Difference Media debut from one of Southern Gospel’s most beloved vocalists, Ivan Parker, is slated to bow July 29. Produced by Garry Jones (Brian Free, Canton Junction), the project marks Parker’s 16th solo recording in a career spanning more than three decades.

Featuring writing credits from such top names as Tony Wood, Sue C. Smith and Joel Hemphill, among others, highlights of Dancing in the Rain include the title cut; “Walk My Way” (feat. Canton Junction); “Let Me Take You To The Cross”; “That’s What Love Does”; “There’s Healing”; and the deeply personal “Mama’s Rocking Chair” (feat. Sandy Parker).

“I have seen so many people around the world who need to be encouraged and hear something that’s going to give them hope,” Parker says of the project. “Lives are shattered and homes are broken every day, which is why I love singing songs that let hurting people know that this moment will pass. Tomorrow will be better and there is hope beyond today. Someone has to tell them that there is promise.”

Serving as lead vocalist for the iconic quartet Gold City from 1983-1993—where he recorded his signature #1 hit, “Midnight Cry”— Ivan Parker’s acclaimed solo career now spans more than 20 years.  As a solo artist, Parker has released 16 recordings, five DVDs and has been featured in 32 best-selling Gaither Homecoming videos.

Absolutely Gospel Music
Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as SoGospelNews.com, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to AbsolutelyGospel.com. The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
