Call on the Lord, a video recording by Rev. Odell Suber Jr.
Rev. Odell Suber Jr. made this amazing recording for Hendersonville’s 2021 Martin Luther King Day celebration. Because of the Covid pandemic, the celebration had to be held virtually. To avoid contact with other singers, Rev. Suber sang all of the parts himself and then skillfully combined them to get the beautiful harmonies in this video. The words to this spiritual held special significance during the pandemic.
Rev. Suber was born and raised in Henderson County and currently serves as Minister of Music at Greater New Zion Baptist Church in Brickton in Fletcher and as Funeral Director at Hart Funeral Service in Asheville. He is the son of Rev. Odell Suber Sr. of New Vision Baptist Church in Asheville and Linda Lynch Suber. He is the great-grandson of Rev. J.H. Suber, who pastored Union Grove Baptist church in the 1940’s and ’50’s, and the nephew of Rev. David Suber, pastor of Glade Creek Baptist Church and co-owner of Daddy D’s Soul Food Restaurant on Seventh Avenue in Hendersonville.
