The Talleys Close Out Live Music Series with “Testify”

Arden, North Carolina (September 10, 2021) — Much like the way they have closed their live shows, The Talleys are finishing their series of live music releases with “Testify,” an all-time audience favorite; written by Black Gospel icon Dottie Peoples, the joyous, celebratory call first appeared on The Talley’s 2000 album, Testament.  

Roger Talley says the energy created by this song — featured on the Gaither Homecoming video New Orleans Homecoming and chosen as the 2002 BMI Christian Music Awards Song Of The Year —  is electric. Opening with Lauren Talley inviting the crowd to say “Amen!” “Hallelujah!” and “Praise the Lord!” in a testament to all God has done for them, the new, live version captures that energy from its very first moment.

“Testify” is the 10th live song the Talleys have released to streaming platforms and is the last in the Songs and Stories series. A video of their live performance of this song will be released in the coming weeks.

“Almost a year ago, The Talleys began releasing live versions of some of our most requested and beloved songs. It has been exciting to introduce people to songs they might not have previously heard, and the response has been gratifying,” says Roger Talley. “We have been flooded with comments from people all over the world about how these songs have ministered to them and are resonating with their families and life situations. It is so humbling to hear how people have been impacted by our ministry through the years, and even though we aren’t touring anymore, our music lives on and continues to bless people every day.”

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.
