Cordova church to feature award-winning recording artists April 11

The unmistakable sounds of multi-Dove and Grammy Award-winning recording artists David Phelps and The Martins will be featured in Cordova on Thursday, April 11, at the First Assembly Memphis, located at 8650 Walnut Grove Road. This concert will begin at 7 p.m.

Once a childhood musical prodigy from Tomball, Texas, David Phelps earned a bachelor’s degree in music from Baylor University. Since then, he has become a nationally celebrated vocalist. Perhaps best known as the tenor for the Gaither Vocal Band, Phelps emerged as a leading voice in contemporary Christian music and has been winning the hearts of audiences for more than two decades. He has performed at prestigious venues such as the White House, New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Sydney Opera House in Australia. With 14 solo albums to his credit, David has moved audiences from all walks of life, crossing generational and stylistic barriers.

Siblings Judy, Jonathan and Joyce Martin, who grew up in rural Hamburg, Ark., have enjoyed radio hits and performances at such prestigious locations as The Grand Ole Opry and The White House, as well as concert halls, auditoriums and churches nationwide. During the 1990s, The Martins rose to national and international success with performances for Bill Gaither’s multi-award winning Homecoming Video and Carnegie Hall. Over the years the trio garnered eight Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association, three Grammy nominations and multiple hit songs.

This event, presented by Outside The Box Events, featuring David Phelps and The Martins, as well as Phelps’ musical entourage, including daughters Callie and Maggie Beth, and will feature many of the songs from Phelps’ “Hymnal” recording, as well as The Martins’ recent Grammy nominated “Still Standing” recording. Each song will take the listener on a journey of inspiration and worship in song, celebrating the resurrection of Christ.
