Karen Peck and New River Return From Israel

Dahlonega, GA – Five-time GRAMMY® Award nominated and six-time Dove Award winning group, Karen Peck & New River recently returned from their second trip to Israel.

During this visit, with the help of one of Gospel music’s first families, KPNR and The Isaacs were able to visit an Israeli orphanage where they handed out donated toys and gifts.

The groups also performed a special concert, with dinner, for survivors of the Holocaust.  A few Israeli soldiers joined them for this amazing event. They presented each of the attendees with a gift card.

Added to their itinerary was a visit to Bethlehem, where they were able to sing Christmas carols in Shepherds Field which overlooks the ancient city. As they did on their last trip, they were thrilled to be able to sing their most popular song, “Four Days Late,” at Lazarus Tomb.

Of the trip, Karen stated, “Words cannot express how blessed we were in Israel! Being there for a second time made it even better. Being in the places where Jesus lived and taught makes everything that we do so much more poignant. We were baptized in the Jordan River, prayed in the Garden Of Gethsemane, toured the tunnels under old Jerusalem, sang on top of Mount Carmel and Mount Of Olives, and saw the Synagogue in Magdala where Jesus taught. Most of all, we visited the Garden Tomb where Jesus was buried and resurrected! We didn’t have to go Israel to believe it, but….Jesus was not in that Tomb! I’m so thankful to serve a Risen Savior!”

Karen Peck and New River will be ending their 2018 tour season with a special December 28th concert in Flowery Branch, GA and a December 30th event in Yadkinville, NC, where their Beyond Amazing Tour begins with Brian Free & Assurance, Emily Ann Roberts, Joseph Habedank and others. The last event will be on December 31st in Bennett, NC with a live video taping of the Beyond Amazing Tour.

The Beyond Amazing Tour will continue into 2019. For more information on that tour or any of their 2019 season visit the KPNR website.

The group’s current single, I Know I’ll Be There, is receiving great airplay on radio and is currently sitting at number 5 on the Singing News chart. To view the video for the song go to the KPNR FaceBook page.

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.
