BJ Pons Announces The Birth of Her Newest Grandchild

New Orleans, LA  – Christian Artist, BJ Pons, has announced the birth of her fourth grandchild, Elaine Elizabeth Slay Hughes. Born May 10th, Elizabeth weighed in at a healthy 6 lbs 13 oz. BJ’s daughter, Destiny Hughes, and son-in-law, Wyatt Hughes, are overjoyed at the arrival of their beautiful daughter.

This has been a busy year in BJ’s personal life, as her daughter Bonnie was married on March 17. In additional to all the personal triumphs and celebrations, the soulful artist continues to tour and minister.

Her single Hidden Secrets, released in January of this year,  continues to enjoy success. The single shares the poignant and transparent testimony of BJ’s own lifelong abuse, with the goal of helping others understand there is healing available when you hand it over to Jesus.

Perhaps it is her own personal past struggle that makes these joyful milestones so much more blessed. Of her newest grandchild’s birth BJ said “There is nothing that shows us more clearly how much God loves us than the birth of a child.  My husband David and I are so grateful for this amazing blessing.”

BJ’s heart for ministry, and for women, allows her to minister in a way others may not be able to.  On July 6, she is scheduled to do a benefit concert for the local Crisis Pregnancy Center in Slidell, LA.

Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as, 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 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.
