Kelly Nelon Clark
Award-Winning Gospel Recording Artist
Women's Ministry Speaker / Music
Conference Speaker / Music
In June 1972, Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductee Rex Nelon asked his daughter Kelly if she wanted to travel to Lexington, Kentucky and "fill in for the summer" with the legendary LeFevres. Since then, Kelly's extraordinary talent and charming personality have made her one of the most recognized vocalists in Gospel music.
Kelly provides the foundation and identity to The Nelons' style and sound. In addition to her work in the family group with husband Jason and daughter Amber, Kelly has also recorded six solo projects, and has enjoyed guest appearances on several other recordings.
Gospel music fans and her peers have recognized Kelly's hard work, dedication, talent, and commitment with numerous awards and honors including several Singing News Fan Awards and a DOVE Award.
Kelly shares stories from her own life to encourage and inspire women. At women's conferences, banquets, and retreats, keynote speaker and vocal artist Kelly Nelon Clark encourages and inspires women as she shares personal stories from her life in Gospel music and from her everyday life as a wife and mother. Kelly's humor and warm personality endear her to women and girls everywhere she speaks. Kelly also enjoys speaking and singing with her daughter Amber - a perfect combo for mother-daughter events!
Jason, Kelly, Amber, and Autumn are a family devoted to God, to each other, and to ministering the Gospel through music and the Word.
Kelly & Amber . . . Encouraging Women and Girls
Kelly and Amber enjoy every opportunity to share with women at conferences, banquets, and retreats. Audiences love hearing stories of their lives - not only as part of one of the most beloved families in Gospel music, but as a mom and daughter with struggles and joys that are common among women.
Kelly and Amber speak openly and honestly, with depth and with humor ... inviting women to be transparent and open about their own lives, accepting God's plan and purpose and the hope that comes only through New Life in Jesus Christ.
