America's Favorite Gospel Family
with Opening Performances by Unashamed, Vance County's Southern Gospel Quartet, as well as Granville County's Christian Music Artist Lynn Cooper of House of Fate Ministries
Multi-award winning family group The Hoppers of Madison, N.C., have been singing to global audiences for over 55 years with appearances ranging from presidential religious inaugural ceremonies and New York’s Carnegie Hall to singing conventions and church platforms.
Their unique blend of harmonies and song choices has given them notoriety as “America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music.” They are favorites on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours, and their recordings frequently land at the top of the Billboard charts and The Singing News radio charts.
Comprised today of family members Claude and Connie, son Dean and his wife, Kim, and son Mike Hopper, The Hoppers were formed in 1957 in the rural-farm town of Madison, N.C., and have grown continuously for decades, touching countless lives around the world.
A cancer survivor, Connie has been honored with numerous awards, including being inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Sons Dean and Mike have continued the family legacy with their musical talents and business abilities; and Kim, Dean’s wife, hails from her own nationally acclaimed musical family, The Greenes. She is noted for the excitement she brings to any live performance.
These four gentlemen from Henderson, N.C., are truly "unashamed" to express their faith through music. Bill Wheeler (bass), Chris Jarrell (baritone), Scott Brantley (lead) and Cliff Reavis (tenor) all take pride in singing Southern Gospel.
From a country/bluegrass sound, to more progressive, the quartet offers something pleasing for everyone. For more information on Unashamed, visit www.facebook.com/unashamedsoutherngospel
