The Ministry: Gigi & Randy Burgess' Music Ministry is comprised of a husband and wife gospel duet based out of North Texas who travel across the southern states.
Both are born-again Christians whose beliefs are in line with the Baptist Faith and Message. Called to bring the Gospel message in song, devotionals, and testimony, they strive to evangelize the lost, inspire worship, uplift fellow Christians and to reach out to those who are unsaved, discouraged or hurting. They are equipped to bring a special music segment or an entire church service, as needed.
Both were popular soloists prior to forming the duet ministry in 2007 and have since ministered in countless churches of varying denominations, revivals, senior and rehabilitation centers, fairs, festivals, rodeos, opry theaters, convention centers, open-air concerts and more.
Their mission is to worship and point to Jesus, to reach lost souls or plant seeds, and to encourage and equip other believers to do the same. While it is always wonderful to hear that someone enjoyed the music, it is their prayer to be vessels for God to move through to stir the hearts of the people. Everything else is secondary.
The Music: Their music includes a variety of styles ranging from toe-tapping Southern Gospel and Christian Country to uplifting, soulful ballads, traditional hymns, and worship songs. They sing with professionally mastered, recorded accompaniment music to present a live music sound. Their song selections incorporate both original and cover songs ranging from current hits to time-honored favorites. Their program delivers the Gospel message with powerful, uplifting music, devotionals and testimony with sincerity, warmth, and humor. They offer an invitation to salvation and to pray with those who have needs or requests.
Gigi Wynell (Baxter) Burgess was born in Amarillo, Tx. and raised in Dallas. Church was not a constant for her family, yet she received Christ at the age of 18. Years later she joined GABC and studied discipleship for over 10 years while serving in the recovery ministry, women's healing ministry and the drama ministry. She began singing in 2005 at various churches as a soloist and accepted the call to music ministry in 2007. She assisted leading the music service at Amazing Grace Fellowship for 2 years and then at Culleoka Baptist for 7 years.
Her smooth, rich contralto voice exudes a type of smoky blues quality and has won her some nominations and awards of her own. In addition to the busy duet ministry, she continues to minister as a solo artist in nursing homes, women's ministries and other venues as God leads.
Accolades: They have received awards in Texas and Oklahoma. In Branson, Missouri they placed top 10, and the following year in the top 5, as finalists for the nationally acclaimed SGN Scoops' Diamond Awards for “Duet of the Year”. They have performed with several nationally acclaimed artists and professional groups and countless semi-professional local groups. They have appeared on many Christian television and radio programs. Songs from their CDs have been played on radio and internet radio around the world.
