From the Blackberry Records CD Real (2012) www.pastortimothyrogers.com
2013 Stellar Award nominee Tim Rogers & The Fellas move from introspective musing to gut-wrenching testifying on “Real,” their newest single and the title track of their 2012 album.
For the Blytheville, Arkansas quartet, Jesus is the eternal friend, and it's a friendship based on faith. Rogers sings, “I can’t see him and I can’t touch him/Every now and then, I can feel him moving.” He directs the listener to call on Jesus when there’s nobody else around. “Won’t he rock you to sleep at night.”
Rogers, who pastors Blytheville’s Prince of Peace Church, organized the Fellas in 2005. They are among a new generation of gospel quartets.
