Johnny and Julie Parsons have been married for over 23 years and known each other for most of their lives. Their roots go deep in the world of gospel music which is actually how they met as children.
Johnny and his parents, J.D. and Joyce Parsons, had a country gospel group called "The Parsons Family." They traveled all around the state of Georgia and several bordering states singing the good news!
Julie got her start at a very young age. She began singing publicly around the age of 6, but never anything too extravagant. Her Dad and Uncle, Jimmy Roberts and Vic Jeffres, had a gospel singing group they called "The Eastern Sky Quartet."
Johnny's family, The Parsons family, and Julie's family, The Eastern Sky Quartet, would sing at some of the same churches which is how the two met.
Fast forward about 30 years and you have The Parsons Redeemed, who are originally from the Atlanta area. Johnny and Julie, along with their son, John, travel full-time and minister through song. Hearing the call from the Lord to forsake a "normal American life," they moved into a motor home and travel where God leads them! They desire to know the Lord deeper and to make Him known; ministering in campgrounds, Walmart parking lots, restaurants, and all of the "in between places."
Julie, Johnny and their youngest son John write songs. The songs they sing are mostly original but this family very much enjoys the time honored hymns, country, southern gospel and contemporary worship music, although it's obvious they have an unmistakably country sound.
Johnny does a wonderful job of leading and he loves to play the acoustic guitar. Also, he is walking in his call to preach.
Julie stands by his side, singing harmonies and lead. She loves to spend time with the Lord and she loves her iced coffee!
John is 18 years old and sings bass as well as baritone! At the ripe, young age of 15, his voice suddenly changed from a high tenor to an ever dropping, low bass over the course of just a few months. John has also been called to preach and plans to grow in that calling!
This missionary family would love to come and minister in song and testimony at your church, event, or other venue!
