Mercy Rain was formed in the latter part of 1997 by LaVerne Sanders and former member Kevin Kearns. Mercy Rain was born out of a desire to serve Christ in the best way they knew how. LaVerne had been a victim of a tragic bus accident many years ago, leaving her disabled and not sure if she would ever walk or talk again, let alone sing. However, God performed his miracle and by his Grace, she has been spreading the Gospel for the last 14 years in song.

Current members are LaVerne Sanders, Angela Parker, Rick Brock, Noah Sanders/driver, Keith Sanders /sound tech. 

Mercy Rain is blessed to have shared the same stage with such performers as: Karen Peck & New River, The Chuck Wagon Gang, the Dixie Melody Boys, The Down East Boys, Palmetto State Quartet, Danny Funderburk & Mercy`s Way, Three Bridges, Heirline, and The Bibletones.

LaVerne, Noah, & Keith reside in Lexington, SC. LaVerne has been singing just about her whole life and contributes her love of music to her Mom, Dicie Herring, who taught her the Christian way and brought her up in a very musical household and to her brother, James Lord. James spent many days and nights teaching LaVerne how to read the music in the old hymnals. Although her Mom did not sing, she always had Gospel music playing around the house. LaVerne also contributes her dedication and persistance to carry the Gospel to the group that gave her a chance 14 years ago, "The Master`s Quartet". Everything she sings is in honor of our Loving Savior, Jesus Christ and "The Master`s Quartet". Read her story in her blogs.

 Angela Parker also resides in Lexington, SC with her husband, Jack, and their five children, Christian, Brennah, Noah, McKenzie, and Brett. Angela has been blessed with an awesome spirit and captivating personality! You will love to hear her sing, testify, and even make you laugh a little! Come out whenever you can and you`ll be blessed!
