Anthony Nelson & The Overcomers is an American contemporary Gospel group from the Baton Rouge, Louisiana metropolitan area, where they blend blues, Zydeco, soul and pop together to make their own brand of cross-cultural songs of praise and worship. The Overcomers have quickly made waves in the Gospel Music industry and garnered national and international attention with their smooth and soulful ballads and songs of praise, skillful lead vocals, rich vocal harmonies and acutely proficient musicianship. This popular ensemble’s body of work includes # 1 Billboard Gospel hit song Deeper (Gospel Digital Song Sales), #5 Billboard Gospel hit song Jealous (Gospel Digital Song Sales), Top 10 Billboard Gospel hit songs Everything (Gospel Digital Song Sales) and Undeserved (Gospel Digital Song Sales), and Top 25 Billboard Gospel hit song Joy (Gospel Digital Song Sales).
The Overcomers worship ministry was founded by songwriter, worship leader, multi-instrument musician, composer and producer Anthony J. Nelson. He comes from strong gospel roots that consist of his late grandmother Mrs. Elizabeth Brown and his late mother Mrs. Joyce Brown Nelson, both noted gospel vocalists and choir leaders. Nelson is also a noted author and blogger for The Huffington Post.
The Overcomers are currently working on several Spanish versions of their hit singles, as well as two albums. The first album Inhabit: EP is scheduled for release in July 2019, while the anticipated release for New Earth Music: Zydeco Gospel Vol. 1 is July 2020.
