Roger Woods of Rogers Music Promotions responsible for the career’s of hundreds of artists over the years is resting at home after having his surgery cancelled due to serious health conditions. Roger is currently promoting Freddie Hart, Connie Hall, Fraser Newcombe, The New Kentucky Colonels, Marty Denton, Linda Brewer plus various other well know Country and Gospel artists.
WHISNews21 spoke with Connie Hall earlier today, one of the Gospel Stars and long time friend of Roger’s, whom he is currently promoting. Connie was kind enough to give us an update on Rogers condition.
“He is in a bad way physically.. He did not refuse the surgery… the Doctor’s straight up told him and his son… that he was not ABLE to undergo the surgery due to the other serious health complications. Roger was more than willing, knowing that his condition has worsened and hoped this surgery would help alleviate that. However, in doing their 2nd Cat Scan and X-Rays prior to the surgery, they realized it was too risky.” Connie Hall
Connie also mentioned that, because there was so much fluid around his heart and lungs, along with the COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), it was important and necessary for Roger to consult other specialists for a second opinion to ensure that the right treatment was used to prepare Roger for the necessary surgery.
“Roger is certainly in need of all the prayers he can get, that’s why I’d posted on my FaceBook… and yes, I know he would not mind at all if I spoke to you concerning this. I know he’d be blessed in heart that you all care.. that your listeners and readers care, I also know he’d talk to you himself, but he’s just not up to talking on the phone at all.” Connie Hall
From all at WHISNews21, NBRN.FM, AirplayExpress and Wildhorse Entertainment we all wish Roger only the best and hope and pray his health will return to him soon. Roger is one of those people who make us all feel like we too are making a difference in this industry.
A special thanks to Gospel Singer/Songwriter Connie Hall for her professional input in preparing this press release today for WHISNews21.
But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. Luke 12:48
Added blessing always brings added responsibility, so: 1) Stop complaining. Happiness doesn’t come from getting what you want; it comes from recognizing and enjoying what you have. So keep a positive attitude and be grateful every day. Rudyard Kipling said, ‘Don’t pay too much attention to fame, power, or money. Someday you’ll meet a person who cares for none of these, and then you’ll know how poor you are’. 2) Stop assuming. When you see your neighbors buying new furniture, taking expensive holidays, and driving the latest car, does something stir inside you to do the same? Be careful; just because someone appears to be in similar circumstances to yours doesn’t mean anything. They might earn twice as much. On the other hand, they may be in debt up to their ears or three-quarters of the way to bankruptcy or a divorce court. Stop making assumptions and trying to be like somebody else. 3) Stop withholding. Bruce Larson said, ‘Money is another pair of hands to heal, feed, and bless the desperate families of the earth. In other words, money is my other self’. But that’s only true if you’re willing to part with it. Money is like manure: If you let it pile up it stinks; if you spread it around it helps things grow. Money gives you options the less fortunate can only pray for. And one more very important thought: How you see your money – that it is all God’s -and how you use His resources that He entrusted you with- will be asked on the Judgement Day. “I was hungry, did you feed me …… Matthew 25:34-46
