About Johnny Minick Johnny Minick was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas. He began his musical journey at the age of 3. Johnny’s parents enrolled him in piano lessons at age 6 where he began to study to be a classical pianist. Those years of classical training gave Johnny an important foundation for the artistry he now enjoys. In his teens, Johnny followed a familiar path that many other classically trained musicians follow; the road to jazz.
In August of 1974, Johnny and his sweetheart, Sherry McDonald married. In the Summer of 1975, Johnny and Sherry packed up and moved to become a part of The Happy Goodman Family. The next few years made an indelible mark on Johnny’s life and musical career. Even though he had founded River Of Life Church in 1992 in Smyrna, TN Johnny reunited with Howard & Vestal Goodman to revive the Happy Goodman brand. With the success of the Bill Gaither Homecoming videos and concerts, The Happy Goodmans found a platform to promote their music around the world. From 1995 through 2002, Johnny traveled 3 days a week singing to 1.3 million people per year attending their concerts from coast to coast and in Europe. At the same time, River Of Life continued growing and enjoying their new worship facility at their Sam Ridley Parkway location. The years with the Goodmans were productive and continues to bear fruit to this day. His relationship with Howard, Vestal, Rusty & Sam continued until their deaths.
In 2014, Johnny, Tanya Goodman Sykes and her husband Michael Sykes started singing together as Goodman Revival. In February of 2014 they went into the studio and recorded their debut project, “Songs In The Key Of Happy.” Gaither Music Group released the project distributed through Capitol Christian Music Group and in October 2014 a companion video was produced at the Gaither Studios in Alexandria, IN.
