The Nelons are an American southern gospel group based in Atlanta, Georgia. Current group members are Kelly Nelon Clark, Her husband Jason Clark, and Kelly's daughters Amber Nelon Thompson and Autumn Nelon Clark. The Nelons southern gospel group was started by founding member Rex Nelon and started out as The Rex Nelon Singers in 1977. The group was a spin-off of the family group The LeFevres. They became known as the Rex Nelon Singers in 1976 because the LeFevre family members had left the group. The group's first number one song was “Come Morning” on the Singing News Chart and was awarded the Southern Gospel Song of the Decade for the 1980's.
Over time The Nelons included Karen Peck, Janet Paschal, Jerry Thompson, Charlotte Ritchie, Kelly Nelon, Jeff Stice, Rodney Swain, Stan Whitmire.
The Nelons have been nominated for many awards in the southern gospel music industry including the Grammys, The Dove Awards, The Singing News Awards, The Absolutely Gospel Awards, The Diamond Awards, and Christian Voice Awards.
Kelly Nelon also performed in the Inspiration Christian Contemporary Music field from 1985-1992.
The Nelons are known for their mixed family harmony sound. In 1985 they changed to a more progressive sound, beginning with their recording In One Accord. At the same time they changed their name from the Rex Nelon Singers to the Nelons. The Nelons were an all family group once Karen Peck left to start her own group in 1991 called Karen Peck and New River.
In 2014, the Nelons are a trio made up Kelly Nelon Clark, Jason Clark, and Rex's grand-daughter Amber Nelon Thompson. Also in 2014, Amber was chosen as Female Vocalist of the Year at the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards.
With numerable awards and accolades including three GRAMMY Nominations, Six Gospel Music Association DOVE Awards and many songs that have soared to the top of national radio charts, this family trio continues to produce innovative music that embraces their traditional roots, while simultaneously reaching beyond various musical boundaries with an emphasis on introducing songs for the church. All the while bridging the generational gap of music lovers with incomparable harmonies and great songs.
The Nelons’ continue a heavy touring schedule consisting of more than 150 concerts annually that takes their brand of Christian music around the world, recently just finishing a very successful Scandinavian Tour. They are regulars on the famed Gaither Homecoming Video Series. In addition they have become sought after worship leaders in various State Music and Choral Conferences.
During the rare times when the Nelons’ are not on the road, they serve as Artists in Residence at Jacksonville’s Trinity Baptist Church. As they travel, they’re Ambassadors for Trinity Baptist College, where Amber is a sophomore.
For (original group member) Kelly Nelon Clark, singing alongside her husband (song-writer and group arranger) Jason Clark, and daughter (vocal power-house), Amber Nelon Thompson this is a full-circle moment as she reflects on the countless nights she shared the stage with her Hall of Fame Father, Rex Nelon.
Today, the Nelons’ take all the elements you’ve come to expect from the group—unparalleled vocal excellence, a sound built on the interplay between a soaring soprano and Kelly’s emotional smooth alto with an intertwining tenor, and add impeccable tight family harmony with an uncanny gift of communicating God’s love and you have a worship experience that you’ll not soon forget!
