The late Bishop "POPS" Henry Newson Sr. was the manager and co-founder of The Newson Family Singers. "POPS" has sung in groups such as the Ruleville Harmonizers of Mississippi, the Sunset Travelers of Tennessee, the Pilgrim Wonders of Toledo, Ohio, The Wheeler Singers, consisting of him and his late wife Doris Parker Newson (the other co-founder of The Newson Family Singers) and other anointed gospel groups. God didn't just bless him with the gift to minister in song, but also the gift to preach and spread His holy word. "POPS" pastored several churches. He last served as the Overseer at Restoration Life Faith Ministries located in Toledo, Ohio before he passed. "POPS" never minded sharing his testimony about his trials and tribulations that God brought him through and the fact that even though he was disabled with one leg, he yet had so much to be thankful for. He never let any situation stop his praise nor did he let it stop him from being a Godly example for his loved ones. In short, he was a mighty man of God, that made sure that his love ones and everyone he ministered to know that disability is not helplessness and to remember that no matter what you're going through in life, that PRAYER changes things and "Jesus Is Listening" to a family that's praying together and staying together.

The Late Missionary Doris Parker Newson
The late Missionary Doris Parker Newson was the other co-founder of The Newson Family Singers as well as the abundantly loved and amazing wife of the late Bishop "POPS" Henry Newson Sr. She sang solos throughout Mississippi and other Southern states, established and organized choirs for the Church of God In Christ in Mississippi and other Southern States, and sung with such groups as The Zionettes and The Wheeler Singers. God blessed her with many gifts such as being an amazing First Lady, being able to minister with the anointing, the gift to teach, the gift to inspire others, and the anointing to lead others to Christ. Every where Doris went, she always had an amazing testimony to tell that brought joy, peace and comfort to others. In short, Doris always looked at the blessing in the midst of any situation, making sure daily that her love ones didn't forget "The Family Prayer" which allowed her to be able to testify often using the words of one of her favorite songs she use to sing called "How I Got Over".
