Warren Coker326Denise Combs shared this story of the generosity and heart for ministry that another couple, the Coker’s have for Michael Combs. “Many of you have heard Michael share at his concerts about the beginning years of Michael Combs Ministry. About the couple out of our home church in Jacksonville, FL that paid for Michael to record his first album ‘Never A Greater Love’ in 1990 in Nashville, TN. Not only did they pay for the recording but they paid all expenses there and back home for both us. Not to long ago Michael was performing and sharing that story and in the audience there they sat. Words cannot even explain what it meant to see them both worshiping the Lord while Michael was singing a song they paid for him to record .Warren and Rietta Coker, we can never tell you in words what you mean to us. Thank you all those years ago for investing in Michael Combs Ministries. You are part of every soul that is saved. We Love You Both!”

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.
