Saturday March 6th, 2010 was an exciting night for Randy Simpson Ministries!Randy Simpson - Award 2010

Randy was scheduled to sing a song at the Annual Pennsylvania Southern Gospel Music Association (PSGMA) Fan Awards ceremony which was held this year at the Kauffman Community Center in Chambersburg, PA.

So many old friends – concert goers and other artists – some we sometimes don’t get to see for months were there and the time of fellowship we had was wonderful! The featured group, the PromisedLand Quartet from Virginia was at the top of their game and everyone was enjoying their music. 

In addition to PromisedLand Quartet, there was music from some of the Pennsylvania artists that were nominated for awards that evening. Everybody did a great job.

Joe and Joey from the PromisedLand Quaret were the Masters of Ceremony for the evening an had everyone in stitches! They did an awesome job of announcing the nominees and keeping the evening moving along. 

When it came time to announce the winner in the “Favorite Male Singer” category, the nominees names were read, each one very deserving in their own right, then came the phrase that everyone was waiting for … “and the winner is…..” The pause after that phrase lasted longer than any pause I have ever heard. I knew what name I wanted to hear next but they were not saying anything… are they taking a break? Did they go to the bathroom? Ok, the pause wasn’t really THAT long… but it sure seemed like it to me. What I heard next brought a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye…. Randy Simpson!

I know how hard Randy works in all aspects of his ministry and have always appreciated his dedication and commitment to professionalism in presenting the Gospel week after week. I appreciate and admire even more his dedication and commitment to Jesus Christ and doing what He has called him to do.

Those of you that know me, know that I like to give Randy grief sometimes (Ok, MOST of the time!  Hey, it’s my job to help keep him humble!)  I was telling some concert goers that ever since he got his award on Saturday that he is now making me call him “Mr. Simpson” instead of just Randy! But seriously, it makes me happy to see him get a tangible acknowledgement that people are noticing, enjoying and being blessed by his ministry. 

Randy, to many of us, you have been our “Favorite Male Singer” for a long time. I’m proud of you and I'm happy that now you have something to hang on your wall as confirmation of what so many of us have been saying all along!

Congratulations my friend!
