Legendary Gold City Responds To COVID-19 With A Free 40th Anniversary Online Concert Friday, March 20

NASHVILLE, TN — New Haven Records announced that award-winning Southern Gospel group Gold City will be live-streaming a free concert commemorating their 40 years in ministry this Friday evening direct from their headquarters at GAT3 Midsouth Studios in Hokes Bluff, AL. This special concert will feature special guests Tim Riley, Adam Borden, Byron Steward, and others.

Daniel Riley shared the group’s reason for this special event: “With everything canceled, we decided to do something special for all of our friends who are stuck at home. This will be an evening of encouragement and fun! In 40 years of Gold City, we’ve never experienced anything like this. Out of an abundance of caution, many churches have scaled down services and moved strictly online. Extracurricular activities have ceased, and many folks are concerned about their jobs. This will be a time for us to worship, laugh and cry. A time for us to focus on God—the only One Who already knows the outcome and promises us that He will walk with us in difficult times. He has proved himself faithful over and over and we know that He will bring us through this trial.”

The livestream will commence at 7:00 CST on the Gold City Quartet Facebook page (goldctyqt). Fans are encouraged to go the page immediately and “share” the post on their own social media feeds.

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.
