Father of Devin McGlamery Passes Away

devindadFrom Devin McGlamery’s Facebook:

Monday evening was by far one of the hardest days of my life. My daddy, my mentor, my well of wisdom, and my friend went home to be with Jesus.

Knowing where he is does occasionally bring a smile, but not having him here to see everyday or to call for advice already scares me so much.

I cherish every memory that constantly comes to my mind. I love the fact that the past 2 years he has seen my children practically every single day and attended church with us on Sundays.

This past Sunday night he got to come hear us, Ernie Haase and Signature Sound, in concert at our church where, to our surprise, Ernie called Karlyn up to sing a song as well.

Dad sat near the back (as always) smiling and singing along to pretty much every song.

We had no idea what the next day would hold, but I am thankful for that memory as well as so many others.

After telling my kids the news about their Papa being in Heaven, Preston’s response was…”now he gets to see pepaw (Karen’s grandfather) and Mossy(our doggie) and Pastor David.” He continued on with others he knew were in Heaven. This time I had tears of joy.

My family and I covet your prayers in the coming days, weeks, and months.

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.
