Growing up in a small community in North Carolina, Wendy is the oldest of six siblings. Also, she often reminded her twin brother Wayne that she was seven minutes older and he should respect his elders. The love of good music began at the tender age of six years old when she began to sing in the sunshine choir of her local community church that was filled with relatives. It was not a day that went by music could not be heard inside of her childhood home. In the 70’s, Wendy’s father, Preston, was a fan of old school music greats like Sam Cooke, Al Green, Otis Redding and etc. At the same time, traditional gospel music could be heard by her mother and aunts known as “Evangelist Mary White and the St. John Gospellettes.”
What is the Purpose?
The purpose of this ministry is to win souls and lift the burdens of believers in the body of Christ. This group founder and manager is Pastor Bobby Peterson, who is also plays lead Guitar. Since mid-1990’s, Unity has recorded songs of rich traditional gospel music that has the foot stomping, hand clapping, and bass lines. To move forward, the latest project “Together as One” is a long fulfilled dream to have her family join in and sing together. A music mixture of both contemporary and traditional quartet roots to maintain Unity fan base Together as One will warm the hearts of the people, set the captives free, and bless the fainted.
Be Inspired By Everything
I try to make my music representative of myself and my generation. I love Traditional and Quartet music which helped to form the group Unity over twenty years ago. As a young lady in the Quartet music industry many mentors come to mind such as the late Willie Neal Johnson, Doc McKenzie, William Brothers, Mighty Clouds of Joy, Evelyn Turrentine Agee, McDonald Sisters, Edward Sisters, and so many others. I count it a blessing and honor to share the stage with many gospel Quartet legends. Unity has traveled and appeared on NC Gospel Announcers Guild, GMWA, and other events throughout the east coast. It is with great honor to God for allowing this group another opportunity to minister and spread the good news of Jesus Christ through this song ministry.
