Gospel group The Nelons to perform May 20 in Millsboro

April 28, 2018

Multi-Dove Award-winning and Grammy-nominated recording artists The Nelons will be featured at 6 p.m., Sunday, May 20, at Long Neck United Methodist Church in Millsboro.

The ministry of The Nelons was formed after family patriarch Rex Nelon had already enjoyed a spectacular 20-year career as a member of the legendary LeFevres. Throughout this distinguished career, many hit songs have flowed their way.

The Nelons, who were recently inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, have been singing hit songs, bridging the traditional sounds of gospel music with contemporary influences, and inspiring listeners of all ages for decades. The group continues to cross generational gaps, presenting rich harmonies that have been embraced by audiences from all walks of life.

Most recently, the popular musical family earned the 2017 Gospel Music Association’s Dove Award for Bluegrass/Country/Roots Recorded Song of the Year for their hit release, “When Grandpa Sang Amazing Grace.”

Joining the Nelons will be talented female vocalist Amber Nelon Thompson. She travels full time with The Nelons and has established an exciting solo career with multiple releases. She was named the youngest Dove Award nominee in history by the Gospel Music Association.

Kelly Nelon Clark said, “Not only will we be singing the classics that have stood the test of time, we will also share many wonderful and interesting stories behind these timeless songs.”
