The Nevels Sisters are returning to their hometown of Youngstown, OH this Saturday (6/27) to perform in concert. This will be the first opportunity Youngstown will experience seeing the Gospel stars perform since they hit the big time. The show at Stambaugh Auditorium will also be the first time the sister act — Veniece Andrews, Debra Jordan, Gail Nevels and April Wade — has played a major venue on their own turf.
The quartet is truly excited at the prospect of playing for its hometown fans and promises a caliber of performance that might surprise even those who have seen them many times before. “We want everyone to come out to see us,” said April. “It will be on a level of excellence we’ve never achieved before. God has elevated our performance level.”
The Nevels released their debut album in 2005 and struggled through thick and thin until late last year. That’s when “Beautiful,” their breakthrough CD, was released. The single “Clap Your Hands” from the album is steadily rising on the gospel chart. The Nevels record distribution company re-released “Beautiful” earlier this month and plans to give it a bigger promotional push than it got when it dropped in November. “Beautiful” will also be available at Saturday’s concert, which will act as a springboard for a world tour that the Nevels will begin later this year. Shows are scheduled across the United States and in Africa. Saturday’s show will feature The Nevels with a live backing band and local gospel act Mark Jackson and Final Call as the opener.
April said the Stambaugh show will be a way to say thanks to the fans that supported the group from the start. “We definitely want to thank Youngstown for its undying support over the years,” she said. “We’ve always wanted to give Youngstown a concert. We’ve been getting a lot of requests. We’ve never done a concert at Stambaugh, and we are looking to sell it out.”
