Hunter Sparkman releases Video in Support of Nashville Relief Efforts

Nashville, Tenn – (March 11, 2020) – Hunter Sparkman, lead singer for the popular Nashville-based contemporary Southern Gospel group, New Legacy Project, has written and released a powerful video for his latest original song, We Will Rebuild.

The dynamic and powerful song was written in response to Sparkman’s personal experience as he and wife Stacey process their own fear and loss as a result of the deadly March 2nd tornado that swept through MiddleTennessee and outlying communities in the early hours of the morning.

While Music City USA was waking up and assessing the damage done by the category EF3 tornado, Sparkman did what he does best. He began putting his thoughts to music in an effort to lift spirits and sound a rallying cry to unite the torn and battered city.

Of We Will Rebuild Sparkman says “In the tragedy, I felt impressed to write this song as a beacon of hope.” He hit the mark! The haunting lyrics begin “So much devastation, such uncertainty.  Right now the most certain thing is the love between you and me,” painting a poignant picture of what many Tennesseans must have felt in the midst of the storm.

But, as the lyrics so eloquently state, the people of Tennessee are not defeated. The memorable chorus mirrors the attitude that Nashville is displaying to the Nation.  “We will rebuild like so many times before.  We will rebuild, because that is who we are.” Recorded at Eclectic Productions in Nashville, Sparkman’s signature vocal power rings through with unrelenting determination.

The project was funded by Gospel Music Hall of Fame member and New Legacy Project group owner, Rick Price, and recorded with the help of many talented and well known Nashville musicians including Bobby Blazier, Chris William Rodriguez, De Marco Johnson and Joseph Spence, to name a few.

With a goal that reaches beyond extending hope through the music, a fundraiser, Hands On Nashville, has been established to help with relief efforts.  Hippie Radio 94.5, one of Nashville’s largest stations, has placed We Will Rebuild in their rotation to assist in bringing awareness to the song and to the fundraising efforts.

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.
