Forgiven
Forgiven








Forgiven is best described as dedicated, talented and sincere.  Cloid and Debbie Baker form this duo, whose music and testimony communicate to the listener their love for Jesus Christ.  Seldom does a gospel group come along with a sweeter harmony, professional appearance and heartfelt desire for ministry than FORGIVEN.  The primary focus of their ministry is the church and their purpose is to provide through music and testimony a worship service for the Christian and an evangelistic service for the unsaved.  Perhaps the greatest compliment given to Forgiven was from a Pastor’s wife when she stated that she loved the music and spirit, but what she appreciated most was that Forgiven displayed no arrogance in their abilities, simply gave praise to the Savior.

Their dedication to spreading the gospel in song is best reflected in their backgrounds.  Cloid and Debbie have devoted nearly all of their Christian lives to singing the good news of Jesus Christ.  They have a rich heritage in gospel music, as their backgrounds include serving with two icons in the gospel music industry, the Gaithers and the Weatherfords.  Debbie traveled with the Weatherfords in the early 1970s, at the same time Cloid was traveling with the Bill Gaither Trio.  After their marriage in 1972, they both traveled with the Weatherfords and when Danny Gaither left the Bill Gaither Trio in 1977 to start his own group, he chose Cloid and Debbie to be part of his ministry.  Over the years, they have maintained a singing group and served in several local churches as Minister of Music and Pianist.  Cloid & Debbie started the group Forgiven in 1988, traveling as a trio year round and singing in 200+ services each year.  In the Spring of 2015, they made the decision to travel as a duo, continuing their full time ministry.  They are the parents of two children, both married and serving the Lord.  Shawna, her husband Paul, and their son, Max, live in Cincinnati, OH and serve in their local church.  Chad, his wife Bethany and their sons, Carson and Cole, live in Mosheim, TN where Chad is part of the Greater Vision ministry.  

Forgiven makes available many recordings, featuring traditional southern gospel music and many classics of our industry.  They have been featured in many gospel music publications, including the premier magazine, Singing News, and have participated in many television appearances including DayStar Network and TCT Ministries.  Forgiven has been part of the National Quartet Convention for over 20 years and made their first appearance on Main Stage in September, 2014.  Forgiven uses state of the art professional high-end sound equipment, tailoring it to meet the needs of the venue.
