The members who comprise the contemporary Christian vocal group known as SPARK – Ryan Johnson, Melissa Whitehead, Angelina Whitehead, Camille Tullis, Greg Wright, Jaxon Moffitt, and Noelle Bybee, a former contestant on NBC’s The Voice – are making an indelible impact on the world with their dynamic sound that is upbeat, uplifting, and inspirational. The members of the group, who come from various areas across the Wasatch Front, are all members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and state that they are excited to share their music through concerts, music videos, and more.
Not only are these dynamic singers and performers exceptional role models for their peers, but they are perfect examples of the scriptures that teach, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16). Every song that they sing is a living testimony of the unconditional love that the Savior has for all His children.
The management team for the group is comprised of McKay Crockett – Guest Director/Performance Coach, Sherri Whitehead – Managing Director/Producer, and Camille Tullis – Associate Director/Choreographer.
SPARK started their YouTube channel on 8 March 2016, and as of early July 2018, their videos have garnered more than 29,000 views on YouTube alone. To date, the group has released six music videos. Their introductory video, was released on 23 November 2016 and is an awesome cover of Unspoken’s “Start A Fire.” The video has been viewed 4.4K times on YouTube alone. “Start A Fire” was followed by a beautiful cover of Kari Jobe’s song “When Hope Came Down,” which was released on 10 December 2016, as part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ #LighttheWorld initiative. Thus far, the video has garnered more than 14,000 views. SPARK has also released music video covers of “This Is Living,” “Diamonds,” and “Sinking Deep.” Their latest music video is an inspiring cover of “Wonder” by Hillsong United, which was released on Sunday, 17 June 2018.
In a blog entry on their official website, also dated 17 June 2018, they commented that their new music video “gives a bold testimony of truth and the new perspective we gain when we find Christ and begin to walk in His light.” The amazing video, “Wonder,” asks the question, “How have I seen the wonder of God in my own life?” The answer may be an eye opening and life changing experience for some as they come to realize that the wonder of God is manifest in each of our lives daily in many ways – not just in grandiose ways, but oftentimes in small ways which may seem to be insignificant, and which we may at times take for granted.
According to their official website, “SPARK mixes inspirational music with pop styling for a sound that’s uplifting and energizing.” The songs that they sing about life, love, and light is a testimony of their faith and steadfast devotion to their Savior, Jesus Christ. Their mission statement reads, “We acknowledge the centrality of God our Eternal Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, to our faith and salvation. Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer.” Their website further states, “SPARK is creating a movement for all ages to rise up in faith and be a light to the world.” Everyone is invited to be a part of the movement by following them on their social media channels – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Spotify – and via their website.
Their flame has been ignited and is burning brightly. They are setting the world on fire with music that is uplifting and delivers a positive message to the listening audience. The members of SPARK have said, “We are dedicated to sharing the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ through our platform, including providing positive content on social media. We believe music can make a difference.” Spark is a motivated group of individuals who are destined to be a part of the music scene for some time to come.
