Phil Cross Launches Solo Touring with Fresh Vision

Spanning the last three decades as one of the most prolific Christian music composers, singer/songwriter, Phil Cross is launching his solo touring with a fresh vision.

Phil Cross has a passion for worship. Not only will he be available for solo concerts but also as a guest worship leader, combining concerts with your talented team. This includes rehearsing with your musicians and vocalists while imparting insights that will make a lasting impact.  Cross is excited about this tour and states, “My friend, Chris White, of Crossroads Music, has encouraged me for years to do this.”

Cross has written many notable, award-winning songs that have come from a lifetime of encounters with God.  The latest project, SIMPLY, features some of these award-winning classics in an acoustic style. Songs include Champion of LoveI Am Redeemed, Jesus Built a Bridge, Yes, I Am, There’s A Miracle In Me and more.  Phil says, “I will be sharing my most popular songs in a way that everyone can connect with and even sing along.”

Whether the response is salvation or simply sharing encouragement with the believer, Phil’s commitment and passion is to honor God and to inspire worshipers.

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.
