Southern Gospel Singer / Songwriter
From the State of Oklahoma and from the City of Roland comes to you a Singer and Songwriter by the name of Marlene Pelt!
Marlene was born in Santa Paula, California and later moved to Arkansas. She grew up with her parent’s and three brothers in a Godly home constantly surrounded by Gospel Music. Marlene accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior following him in water baptism at the tender age of seven.
Marlene through her Gospel Music career has sung with many local groups. She started writing meaningful Gospel Songs at 24 years of age but it was not until 20 years later she started walking through the doors God began to open for her and her music. In 2003, stepping out with faith in God and the support of her husband, Tommy Pelt, she began singing words of testimony through songs. She was introduced to Radio in 2009 with many of her songs charting. Marlene also is a registered BMI Songwriter and owns her own Publishing Company, which is (Marlene Stafford Pelt Publishing/BMI).
Several Artists have recorded her songs such as Kevin Spencer and Friends who released nationally one of Marlene's compositions entitled "One Stone at a Time” charting at # 1 in the Christian Voice Magazine Top 100 and # 31 on the Singing News Top 80.
Her Song “Go and Tell” was recorded by KSF in 2008, also by James and Starla Dean 2010 and has been signed with “Gaither Music Company”. She is also thankful to have had many of her songs recorded by other independent Artist and Groups.
Some of Marlene’s Blessings from God which she is thankful for are Awards such as BSSA Female Vocalist of the Year in 2003, 2004 & 2005 and Gospel Pen Writer of the Year 2004.
