The Martins, Grammy nominated Christian recording artists, will be featured at Pine Bluff First Assembly of God, 1002 Ridgway Road, during a musical service at 10 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 26.
Siblings Judy, Jonathan and Joyce Martin are The Martins, who grew up in rural Hamburg. The trio has garnered eight Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association, a Grammy Award nomination and had multiple hit songs, according to a news release.
“After nearly a decade of pursuing individual music careers, the trio reunited in 2010, much to the delight of long-time Martin music lovers, and released their first new recording in 10 years, New Day, produced by Jay DeMarcus (Rascal Flatts),” according to the release.
The Martins rose to national and international success in the 1990s, showcasing their harmonies before an array of audiences from Bill Gaither’s multi-award winning Homecoming Video and Concert Series to the White House to Carnegie Hall.
In 2014, The Martins joined renown arranger, Lari Goss and long-time friends and producers, Michael English, David Phelps and Matthew Holt to record a new a cappella hymns project.
Titled “A Cappella,” the recording was released in May 2014 and earned the group a Grammy nomination for Best Roots Gospel Album, as well as the Dove Award nomination for Inspirational Album of the Year from the Gospel Music Association.
“The Martins returned to the recording studio with multi-award winning producer, arranger and musician, Gordon Mote. The recording will feature newly penned compositions, as well as several classics and is set to be released in early 2018,” according to the release.
