Carl A. Cole

Because music inspires us and we appreciate a variety of styles, ON THE LAST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH we relish the unique style of Carl Cole's music, as Carl and Dianna, his spouse, lead us in song, bringing a special energy and flair to our hymns, musical selections, solos and duets.

The Coles are well known for their ministry through SOUNDS OF GOOD NEWS Productions, an inspirational communications organization focusing on life enhancement through music, arts, poetry, drama and journalism, in the Greater Rockford area and beyond.

Carl started playing piano at church when he was young. His mother organized the seven kids into the "Singing Coles."  Dianna also grew up in a family of ministers and singers. Together,

Carl and Dianna, along with their son Andrew with his multi-talents in drums, bass, keyboards and secret signing, continue to minister in churches, in the larger community especially with youth.

Carl is an ordained minister, an "Elder" in the Church of God In Christ.
