Greater Vision Celebrates 15th #1 Song

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (AUGUST 4, 2021) — Greater Vision is celebrating its fifteenth career #1 song on the Singing News Top 80 Chart“Start With Well Done” hit the #1 position on the chart which will be featured in the Singing News Magazine’s September 2021 issue. The chart-topping single was written by long-time group member and perennial Singing News Fan Award Songwriter of the Year, Rodney GriffinJon Epley, Chris Allman, and Gerald Wolfe make up the rest of the group. 

“Greater Vision has been a major part of our Daywind Family of artists for the last 25 years and hearing this news about their 15th number one song, absolutely thrills our entire team,” says Dusty Wells, Director of A&R for Daywind Records. “Gerald, Rodney, Chris and Jon have always made certain what they write, what they look for and the songs they pick are the best possible for a project that will touch hearts and lives. Once again, their latest project The Journey, continues with the best of the old and 5 amazing new songs. We are absolutely honored to walk alongside them on this “journey”, and we look forward to many more number one songs.”

“Success at the end of life will not be tallied by career, money, or accolades,” shares Griffin. “It will only be measured by hearing two words from the Father, ‘Well Done.’ When I first wrote this song, I thought it was just for me. Sometimes when we preach to ourselves, we whisper a private, “Amen!” and then strive to walk closer to the Lord. I’ve been so very encouraged to see and hear people “Amen!” this song publicly as they too are encouraged to finish this race well.”

This latest success comes as Greater Vision continues the celebration of Its 30th anniversary in ministry. This legendary group sets the standard for Gospel music and ministry. 

“Start With Well Done” comes from the album The Journey, which released earlier this year and is available everywhere. Greater Vision is touring extensively this year in support of the album and in honor of its 30th anniversary. Greater Vision is booked for appearances by the Harper Agency.

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.
