New HHS auditorium to feature The HoppersPublished 11:58am Monday, July 8, 2013
The Hoppers will appear in concert at the new Hartselle High School Auditorium Fri., July 26, at 7 p.m. as a part of the group’s Something Good tour.
The Hoppers – known as America’s favorite family of gospel music – 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. They have performed throughout the U.S. as well as Israel, Europe and Africa. Their unique blend of harmonies and song choices have created a legacy of musical excellence embraced by leading pastors and event organizers.
The Hoppers are favorites on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours, and their recordings land near the top of the Billboard sales charts and The Singing News radio charts. In 2012, the group was inducted into the GMA Music Hall of Fame alongside Aretha Franklin, Ricky Skaggs, Love Song, Rex Humbard and Dallas Holm.
The group, formed in 1957, is comprised of family members Claude and Connie, son Dean, his wife Kim and son Mike Hopper.
