Karen Peck and New River Receive Three AGM Ovation Awards

KPNR2nd3 Dahlonega, GA (April 14, 2016) Multi-award winning Gospel group, Karen Peck and New River added three more awards to her collection at the prestigious Absolutely Gospel Music Awards in Nashville, TN at the Nashville First Church of the Nazarene in the heart of downtown Nashville.

Coming off winning numerous big awards, including a Dove Award last year, this outstanding group is at it again. Starting this year by winning the “Song of the Year” for “Pray Now”, “Album of the Year” for Pray Now, and “Mixed Group of the Year”, this appears to be another phenomenal year for this very popular group.

Not only is the group being recognized for their performance abilities, but for the second year in a row, Karen has been a co-writer for the “Song of the Year” with Dave Clark and Michael Farren. Karen enthusiastically tells all in attendance of her concerts that “God will answer your prayer just as He did for her husband Ricky, healing him of cancer”.

Karen stated, “We had a wonderful time last night at the awards show in Nashville, TN. We were honored with three awards! I had the privilege of writing Pray Now with Dave Clark and Michael Farren. They were there that night! It was the first time I had seen both of them together since we had written the song two years ago. It was truly a blessing to receive the Song Of The Year award. Sometimes the Lord allows us to see the fruits of our labor. Absolutely it is about souls being saved and people being encouraged any day over winning awards, but this was another small ‘nugget’ that the Lord blessed us with.”

Karen Peck and New River is currently racing up the charts with their newest radio release “I Am Blessed”, so just sit back and watch this great song not only move the hearts of men and women, but move swiftly all the way to the top of the charts.

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.
