Moments with Mercy - Interview with Karen Peck!

Hey y'all!

I was recently able to do an interview with Karen Peck!  This interview was requested by a visitor to our blog.  First let me tell you a little bit about Karen Peck and New River!


Karen Peck and New River is a 3-time Grammy Award Nominated and 3-time GMA Dove Award Winning Southern Gospel Group. Karen’s flawless, delightful soprano voice has made its way into the hearts of Gospel Music lovers across the country and garnered an unprecedented 11 Favorite Soprano Fan Awards from the readers of The Singing News Magazine, Southern Gospel Music’s leading fan and trade publication. Karen, Susan and Jeff have also received many awards from other magazine publications and Internet publications. Over the past four years, New River has had six consecutive #1 songs in Southern Gospel Music. In addition, their current album, REVIVAL, has had two consecutive #1 songs with “Revival” and “Finish Well.” “Revival” won the 2014 GMA Dove Award for Southern Gospel Song of the Year, Song of the Year for the 2014 SGN Diamond Awards, Song of the Year and Progressive Song of the Year for the 2014 Absolutely Gospel Music Awards, and the album REVIVAL won Album of the Year for both the Diamond Awards and the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards. Their previous album release, Reach Out, had two consecutive #1 songs for “On the Banks of the Promised Land” and “Mighty Big God.”  New River sets a new standard for musical perfection with rich vocal harmony that is shaded with the sophistication of Southern Gospel, country and progressive musical sounds. New River today stands not only as a talented and successful recording artist, but more importantly, effective messengers presenting the Gospel, through Jesus Christ.
