Amber Thompson


Amber Nelon Thompson is a third-generation Southern Gospel singer, the daughter of Kelly Nelon and Jerry Thompson and grand-daughter of Rex Nelon. She was still a child when she recorded her first solo project in 2000.

In 2002, Amber officially joined the Nelons full-time, replacing Katy Van Horn (Peach).

In 2012/2013, Amber won the Idol Experience at Walt Disney World, which allowed her to audition for the television talent show, American Idol. She ultimately chose not to pursue what many would consider a dream opportunity after one judge said she would be expected to dress provocatively and sing only secular songs.

Amber has been featured on the Gaither Homecoming video series from childhood to the present day. She is married to former Hoppers member Nathan Kistler.
