Derek, Mikaela and Logan Pausewang, collectively known as Southern Anthem, bring a fresh sound to long-time country and gospel favorites. From church auditoriums, fairs and festivals, to Branson, national television appearances, and requests from Nashville and beyond, the demand for their unique family harmony now has them traveling across the US.
What started as a need to have interim talent at a local theater production has grown into a full time profession. Although the group began singing in church years ago, they never dreamed it would lead to the calling that God placed in their hearts. The band has a growing audience spanning from the youngest to oldest of fans enthralled by the talent of the Pausewang family. Now, with the debut of their 3rd album with the original title track, "Savior Save Me", they have even more to offer their fans.
