Mercy’s Well to perform

Special Report

For any rising, young Christian vocal group, each new recording and each church or concert appearance spawns the hope of making an indelible mark on the life of each individual who hears the music that group presents. Before the first note has been played or the first lyric has been sung, the commitment is made to strive for perfection. Nothing less can be said of the trio, Mercy’s Well.

Mercy’s Well will perform a love offering concert at Wrens Baptist Church on Sunday, Nov. 2, at 6 p.m.

Originally organized in 1998 as a duet, Mercy’s Well, under the leadership of group founder, Brad Strider, soon made the natural transition to a trio. The group’s first three single releases paved the way for their first top 80 single in 2005. Throughout the past six years, the group, which is based in Greensboro, N.C., has continued to produce chart topping singles and has gained national attention from fans, music critics, pastors and promoters alike.

The group’s most recent recording is called, Today. Their last release was, Power.

“It excels with creative excellence, a testament to the recording’s production team and producer,” Strider said, adding as well as Mercy’s Well members Greg Gainer, Kyle King and himself. “Today has the trademark harmonies we are known for, a great message, and a bit of a rocking beat as heard on our newest single, ‘I Wanna Hear The Gospel.’

“The recording, like each performance by us, is a testament to the versatility of this talented trio, as it encompasses a variety of musical genres, without compromising the gospel message. It literally has something for every listener, from true blue southern gospel to middle of the road and there’s even a CCM flavored song for those who have come to expect the variety that we deliver.”

Mercy’s Well is carving their own niche in today’s Christian music scene. This vocal group is comfortable performing on concert stages before thousands, as well as in a rural churches across the nation.

“Our versatility makes us a favorite among young audiences and older music lovers alike,” Strider said. Mercy’s Well continues to reach new plateaus, as they consistently strive for perfection in their musical presentation of the Gospel message.

“We believe we are constantly reaching new levels, lyrically, vocally and spiritually,” Strider explained. “We believe that’s what God expects of us, and our greatest desire is to please Him in all we do.”
