Our Story

Messiah's Call is a Southern Gospel trio from East Tennessee, based in Knoxville right in the heart of Big Orange Country!

The mixed trio was founded and established in January of 2014 by current member and lead vocalist, Jack Allen. Jack first started his career in 2002 when he formed Greater Faith Quartet with his brother, Scott Allen. Together they sang across the country and abroad with such talented members of the quartet as Andy Stringfield, currently now the pianist for The Kingdom Heirs of Dollywood and Brandon Barry, who also went on to sing bass with the Lefevre Quartet for several years and currently holds the bass position with Poet Voices

JACK ALLEN: Jack is the owner and lead vocalist for the group. He makes his home in Knoxville, TN with his wife Wendy, daughter Brinlee, and his three sons Bryson, Blake, and Braxton. When he is not on the road you will find him and his family attending their home church, Bethel Baptist Church in Corryton, TN or working with Chapel Valley Music Group where he maintains both A&R and Publishing Director positions. Jack enjoys vocal arranging and production, and has produced vocals on many of today's artists such as Gaither Homecoming artist, Southern Gospel Music legend and Hall of Fame inductee, Ann Downing, The Anchormen, The Perry Sisters, Troy Burns Family, Jason Runnels, and many many more.

 

CORKY LONG: Corky, is the lone female in the group. She is also the one who keeps the guys in line! Corky sings alto for the group coming on board in the early stages prior to January 2014. She and Jack began praying for direction in October 2013 and has been the prayer warrior for this ministry. Prior to joining Messiah's Call she sang with another local trio, HisVoice. Corky makes her home in Alcoa, TN with her husband Jimmy. Corky has two sons Brandon and Corey Brewer who have grown up and now have families of their own. When Corky isn't traveling with the group you will find her attending her home church, New Hope Baptist Church in Maryville, TN.

BRAD LEDBETTER:Brad Ledbetter accepted Christ 2006. Shortly after, he was given the opportunity to start serving God through music by traveling with his family “The Ledbetter’s”. He sat under his Father and Grandfather for a few years to learn how to serve the Lord, and have the right heart for ministry. After singing with his family, God really opened up doors for other groups. Since 2006 he has been singing and preaching the name of Jesus everywhere he goes.

From 2011 to 2014, Brad was in the military and is now a veteran of the United States of America.Brad went through some very trying times in these years, but wants people to know, that God never left his side. As he was home one night with his mental and physical being falling apart, God finally spoke to him and said “do I have your attention now?” Brad trying to do life himself, rolled off his couch and surrendered to follow God no matter the cost. Bradley says... “it’s not always easy serving the Lord, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.”

 

Messiah's Call recorded their first record in March 2014, titled "He'll Do It Today" And from there, they have never looked back. Traveling around 100 dates each year, seeing countless lives touched and many saved through their ministry. They will be the first to tell you that they are only the vessel created to carry the message. He can use anyone that is willing.

With a true passion for sharing the gospel in song all across the country and abroad, we would love the opportunity to share our music and ministry with you, your church, or concert event.
