The Nelons Honored with 2 SGM FanFair Awards
JACKSONVILLE, Fl. – (May 7, 2010) – Legendary Gospel music group The Nelons were honored with two wins in last night’s SGM FanFair Awards. The awards were handed out at a special awards program as a part of the SGM FanFair. The 6th Annual SGM FanFair is taking place this week at the Smoky Mountain Convention Center in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
The Nelons won their first SGM FanFair Award for Favorite Trio. In addition, beloved vocalist Kelly Nelon Clark was awarded Favorite Female Vocalist during the event.
Kelly said last night at the awards program, “I am absolutely speechless to have won this award. I love singing with my family, and I have to thank them first and foremost. Also, thank you to all the fans who voted for us! We are so honored.”
“Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to sing with The Nelons,” responded Amber Nelon Thompson after winning Favorite Trio. “I am honored to be a part of the group today!”
Kelly Nelon Clark also served as a co-host of the awards program with John Lanier and Margie Tanner. The Nelons were a featured performer at the 6th Annual SGM FanFair. They ministered at the weeklong celebration of Gospel music on Wednesday and Thursday evening.
The Nelons released their highly anticipated recording – Beside Still Waters – this past January. The new release is being touted by many industry insiders as a career highlight for the group. This is the group’s sophomore outing for Vine Records.
