Amber Thompson , of the Nelons, has quite the story of trust, tests, & tenacity when it comes to facing the Idol judgment of Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, and Randy Jackson .

Amber Nelon Thompson, soprano singer for the Nelons, has a "golden ticket" to the next season of American Idol. Now I don't have time to bother with TV shows, so I'm unfamiliar with the term in this context, but other bloggers are taking this to mean that she will be performing, and not just in the audience. [EDIT, 6/6/12: Broken link removed.] American Idol's rules stipulate that singers cannot currently be under a recording contract. Assuming this applies to groups the singers are members of, either Thompson will need to leave the Nelons during the course of her time on the show, or they will need to / have perhaps already ended their Vine Records contract. However, nothing I've seen discussed so far indicates that she must stop performing with the Nelons during the show, so long as the Nelons aren't under a recording contract at the time of the show.
...
I hope Amber can maintain her values and be a good Christian example.
...
Amber won!
...
I think Amber has a GREAT opportunity to not only represent the KING OF KINGS but bring a small spotlight to the Southern Gospel genre.
We always assume the "world" will take away our young people when in reality they don't have to be on the American Idol stage for that to happen.
They have just as much opportunity to fall into the hands of the enemy by staying at home and hanging out with friends on Saturday night. (it's just not as publicized)
I say WAY TO GO AMBER!
...
I wonder if Amber will have to sing the same secular material that everyone else is singing. Hope not.
...
Amber has said she doesn't want to seek fame this way, and I completely believe and support her in that. But she's talented enough that she might not have a choice if she makes it big.
...
I could see Amber going a Carrie Underwood-type route.

So two things about Amber Thompson:
...
Amber did win a "Golden" ticket to Hollywood. She went to MGM Hollywood studios and entered the American Idol Experience in Orlando. They give out one everyday. There are 2 different kinds of "Golden" tickets that are given, and until you register(which she hasn't yet)you don't know what kind of ticket you have. It was really all just for fun,and she won the whole thing.
...
Amber is 21 and can make her own decisions and I know whatever she does, it will come thru a lot of prayer and counsel. Do I voice my opinion yes, but I will not say what that is. As far as the Vine thing, I am not sure about that and will have to investigate should she decide to go. She is not technically signed, The Nelons are signed.

...
This month I want to turn your attention to another child star in Gospel Music, Amber Thompson. Amber is the fourteen-year-old soprano singer for the legendary Nelons.
...
Amber was born on March 28, 1989, to Kelly Nelon Clark and Jerry Thompson.
...
Amber was saved in 2000 at Grace Baptist Church in Powder Springs, Georgia, which is her home church. She lives in Marietta, Georgia, where the Nelons are based. In her spare time, she loves to play basketball.
...
When the Nelons had an opening for the soprano part in April of 2002, Amber fulfilled a life-long dream when her mother offered her the opportunity to sing fulltime with the Nelons. Not only was she the most obvious choice, Amber was also the most qualified! Since making her first appearance on stage at the prestigious DOVE Awards when she was only a few weeks old, Amber has become one of the most recognized young artists in Gospel Music.
Amber has been featured on all of the "Gaither Homecoming Kids" videos, and has recently started appearing on the "Gaither Homecoming Friends" video and television series. Amber has two solo recordings, Show & Tell and Amber Thompson & Friends. Both of these solo recordings were nominated for "Best Children's Recordings" by the Gospel Music Association, making her the youngest-ever DOVE Award nominee.
In 2002, the subscribers of the Singing News Magazine nominated Amber Thompson for the Horizon Individual of the Year Award. I predict that in a very short time, she will be seen on the same ballots as a Favorite Soprano Singer! Her first recording as a member of the Nelons is entitled "United For Christ". On the road, she says that it is her job to set up the product table and keep it stocked.
Be sure to visit the Nelons online at www.thenelons.com to find out more about Amber Thompson and the rest of the Nelons.
...
At only fourteen years old, Amber can stand beside any other soprano in Gospel Music and prove that she can deliver a song. Check to see if the Nelons are coming to your area soon, and make plans to go see them. I guarantee you that you will be impressed with Amber's voice and personality. Kelly, Amber, and Jason Clark, maintain a wonderful sound that would make Rex Nelon proud.

Amber Thompson is an attractive, vivacious 22-year-old. She has been singing gospel music professionally with her family group, The Nelons, since she was 10.
...
Amber recently had an opportunity to try out for the popular "American Idol" TV show. She opted not to undertake the course the show's judges demanded of her. For that, she received a standing ovation at the Fall Festival concert.
...
Amber was asked to tell about herself. She replied that she had been singing Christian music all her life and was a professional gospel singer.
...
It was at this point that Amber came to the decision that changing her entire persona to become an "American Idol" was not her kind of priority, and she withdrew from the competition.
...
Amber was visibly touched.
Amber is a student at Trinity Baptist College, and around her studies the family sings about 150 dates a year around the world. She literally grew up on the road as her mother and grandfather Rex Nelon toured all her life.
From the decisions she made surrounding her "American Idol" tryout, it is evident she has her life goals in line and her priorities straight.

Kelly, Jason, Amber, and Autumn understand the value of Southern Gospel Music.

Amber and Autumn also grew up with Gospel Music running through their blood. Amber said that music has always been a part of her life and that she has always wanted to sing Southern Gospel Music. Autumn echoed Amber's response saying, "That's all I have ever really known."
The Nelons are comprised of husband and wife duo Jason Clark and Kelly Nelon Clark, along with their daughters Autumn and Amber.
...
Whether they are at home or abroad, one thing is certain: Kelly, Jason, Amber, and Autumn love what they do because they are doing what they love.
