Joy Holden Releases New Video, “Right Here, Right Now,” and Celebrates Diamond Award Nomination

Spartanburg, SC – (August 3, 2021) – Christian singer, songwriter and musician, Joy Holden, has announced the release of a new video, “Right Here, Right Now,” from a cut off her latest album Broken to Beautiful.

This bright and uplifting song was written by Tony Wood and Belinda Smith, and the album was produced by Les Butler, a 42-year music veteran and an icon in the Nashville Christian music scene.

Right Here, Right Now” reminds us that the Lord is with us no matter where we are.  As the first verse exclaims, “when His people come together He will surely meet them there.”  Joy’s powerful vocals, and the impeccable musicianship of the song, serves to drive this message home.

Joy decided to shoot the video at beautiful Lake Bowen in Inman, SC. She creatively used a theme that is reminiscent of an old style reunion, with families and friends gathering for fun on the water for fishing, swimming, picnicking, playing games, camp fires, and great fellowship.  

True to the message in the song, the video features an old red truck that belonged to Joy’s late father and has been passed down to his great grandson, Adam, who makes an appearance in the video. 

Joy said “I want this video to be a great reminder of family legacy, faith and values. What better time in our history than now to remind people that, as the song says, burdens may get lifted, hopeless hearts may be restored, maybe even some will start believing and come to know the Lord.” Joy believes so strongly in the restorative and present power of God, she has named her upcoming tour “Right Here, Right Now.”

This prolific singer/songwriter is also being recognized for her talent and contribution to the Christian music industry at the prestigious Diamond Awards. On July 31, it was announced that Joy has been nominated for the Sunrise Artist Award (new artist/emerging artist of the year).  Winners will be reported on October 26th during the annual Creekside Convention ceremony in Pigeon Forge, TN.  Voting is now open, and you can go here to cast your ballot in support of Joy’s nomination, or for any of your other favorite artists:   www.surveymonkey.com/r/DiamondAwards2021T10

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.
