Ivan Parker
"Jesus has his hand on me, Every step I take he's leading me. Through my faults are my greatest victories I know Jesus has his hand on me." Those lyrics from one of Ivan Parker's most recent releases, conveys an appropriate summation of this singer's life. First class recordings and hit singles may come and go, but rarely does an artist come along who possesses a voice capable of delivering songs which will last a lifetime. However, Ivan Parker is a man who surpasses the norm. His name has become synonymous with Christian music and his voice is one that is immediately recognizable by fans across the country who embrace his musical medium. The son of a Preacher, Ivan grew up singing the songs of the church. Early in life he knew he wanted to sing Gospel music. God allowed this dream to become a reality in 1982 when this North Carolina native received the call to join the The Singing Americans, a popular Southern Gospel quartet. Instantaneously Ivan's unique vocal ability gained the respect of industry peers and the admiration of fans nationwide. However, in 1983 Ivan resigned his position with The Singing Americans and made his way to the hills of Georgia to his new home with The Gold City Quartet. With Ivan in the lead vocal position, Gold City became Southern Gospel Music's most popular quartet. Gold City achieved seven Favorite Group Awards and 19 Top Ten Hits, including the 1993 Dove Award- winning Southern Gospel song of the year, " There Rose a Lamb." The most popular song to date, "Midnight Cry" became Ivan's signature song and is requested everywhere that he goes. After a decade with Gold City, in January of 1994 Ivan launched his career as a solo artist. Crossing musical boundaries and bridging the gap between Southern Gospel and Inspirational, Ivan successfully traveled into uncharted territories and found exciting opportunities and even more challenges. Ivan has shared his music with attendee's of Bill Gaither's Praise Gatherings, Family Fest and Jubilate productions.
Ivan is a regularly featured guest on the popular Gaither and Friends videos. He has been featured on TNN Primetime Country and TBN. Ivan also serves as the third member of the Gaither Trio with prolific songwriters Bill and Gloria Gaither.
Since 1994 Ivan has released three recordings, including his latest, " Journey to Forever." Like his debut and sophomore recordings, this project is filled with his rich vocals which leave their indelible stamp on each tune, which Ivan penned himself. The recording produced by Garry Jones, permeates with expression and passion as Ivan pours his heart into everything.
Ivan has been voted Favorite lead vocalist seven times. He has been selected among the elite list of Outstanding Young men in America three times and in August of 1996 he was presented the Distinguished Soloist Award by the Church of God Denomination Worldwide. Amidst the 200- date touring schedule Ivan encounters each year, he is a devoted family man who enjoys spending time with his family in Nashville, TN. Ivan and wife Teresa, have enjoyed 19 years of marriage and have two sons, Ryan and Josh. The Parkers attend Abundant Life Church and are actively involved in various community and church activities. The love and devotion to his Lord and the ministry sustain the growth and strength of this family. Just as Ivan is thankful for the support of his family, he is also grateful for the support of fans across the country who have become more than fans - they are treasured friends. "A solo career is quite an endeavor and it's rather scary at first," Ivan relates. "You have to follow God's direction and then He sends people to offer you encouragement and support." In turn, Ivan offers support to those same people through his music and ministry.
