The Gospel group, New Covenant, formed in the Fall of 2001, originates out of Wendell, North Carolina. Each singer met at Central Baptist Church and is also a member which brings a strong continuity among the group. They bring to the stage a blend of Contemporary Christian, Praise and Worship and Southern Gospel and have also been known to take its audiences through a nostalgic journey of 50's and 60's Oldies music from time to time. The stage is filled with laughter, energy and a positive message.
New Covenant is comprised of singers, Larry Johnson (Tenor), Sherry Gammon (Alto), Glenn Alford (Tenor), Joanna King (Soprano), Jeremy Gamble (Bass) and Angela Millenbaugh (Alto). Each member has the versatility of singing various vocal parts and together, brings a casual yet spirited performance in a variety of musical venues. Collectively, the singers bring an extensive background and experience in the music arena. From trios, quartets and choirs to professional bands, in addition to instrumental, songwriting, radio and studio work, each member brings a special flavor of talent that enhances their overall essence as a performing group. Roots run deep and wide as the individual members originate everywhere from Central and Eastern, North Carolina, Central Alabama and across the Atlantic in Great Britain.
The group's performance opportunities have been as diverse as where they originate. These range from invitations to perform for National Day of Prayer services, town festivals, the White Lake waterfront, Cameron Village to "kick off" Christmas in the state's capitol city, central Alabama, the North Carolina Governor's Mansion and the list goes on as they expand their territory.
While continuing their weekly engagement with their congregation in praise and worship, reaching out to the community has become a solid belief among the group members. They bring joy and smiles that span from the younger to the older generations through a monthly ministry at nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Partnering with the volunteers, staff, kids and their families at the Ronald McDonald House in Chapel Hill has become a favorite of the group members as well.
New Covenant may deliver a mix of familiar music from some of the industry's favorite musical genres in a style all their own but they never forget the "Source" of their inspiration. Hebrews 8 was embraced as the official scripture to represent their group name, their purpose and their reason to celebrate, in song, a "newness of life". The blood-stained nails shaped into a cross within the New Covenant name are a reminder of the ultimate and final sacrifice made to solidify God's promises that outlive any other. The mission of this group is to bring the truth of God's love, the eternal hope found through their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and joy in the hearts of those who are hurting and hungry for His divine peace all through the healing power of music. The calling is real, the message is pure and the passion is bold. All are welcome to come "just as you are" and celebrate what life is all about with New Covenant.
