The Nelons To Perform During Presidential Inauguration Week

nelonsHendersonville, TN (January 16th, 2017) – GMA Hall of Fame members, The Nelons, have been honored with the opportunity to sing the patriotic classic, ‘God Bless America’ during the Laying of the Wreath Ceremony, to kick off this week’s Presidential Inaugural events. The ceremony will take place on Thursday, January 19th at Arlington National Cemetery, where President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence will pay homage to American troops. The event is scheduled to be televised as part of the Inauguration coverage on CSPAN at 3:30 pm EST.

While in the nation’s capital, The Nelons plan to participate in a variety of the festivities planned for the historic week, including the Kentucky Ball and New York Gala.

“We are grateful to God anytime we have the privilege of using our voices to honor U.S. Soldiers, but to be with Mr. President Donald Trump and Mr. Vice President Mike Pence during this sacred ceremony is quite a humbling feeling and a day our family will never forget!” shares Kelly Nelon.

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.
