(Wheelersburg, Ohio) Pauline Patterson is happy to announce that Joy Jones signed an agreement to receive national radio promotions for her family group, the Jones's this month. Derec and Ryan Jones are Joy's sons and they travel nationally and internationally taking the Gospel in song with their ministry.
The trio won a spot on the National Quartet Convention main stage this year in Pigeon Forge, TN. Their song, "Come On, Come On" is their latest release. Joy started singing at age four and was raised in an evangelistic family. They traveled the United States, Canada, Haiti, Jamaica, and Mexico from her youth into young adulthood. In 1996 Joy joined New Journey as a featured vocalist on many songs, including the group’s first top ten radio single. During this phase the group signed with Homeland Records in Franklin, Tennessee and also signed with Parker Music Group, a booking agency in Nashville.
They have been a part of the Gaither Homecoming Series concerts and video shoots. Other appearances were made on television programs such as TBN, Gary McSpadden’s Gospel Hour, & multiple appearances on Daystar Television Network. Joy has also had a successful solo ministry and was voted "Favorite Soprano of the Year" by the Kentucky Gospel Music Association. She had a national hit song with "Do it Afraid." Derec and Ryan have sang as a duet "The Jones Boys" and recorded two projects and have drawn much positive attention to their ministry. When Joy and the boys decided to form the trio in 2011, they made a great impact with appearances on Daystar Television Network and other nationally aired programs. Pauline Patterson notes, "I'm very excited to work with this talented family trio. I believe people are sure to embrace their music. Their mission is to go where the Lord leads them."
