SGN Scoops’ Fabulous, Frenetic Fun Fact Friday with the Hyssongs

Written by Staff on October 16, 2015 – 8:23 am -

Hyssongs

Hyssongs

We are excited that the award-winning Hyssongs will be hitting the stage this year at Creekside! Dell, Susan and Richard have been traveling for 19 years as a full time family trio. They not only have energetic family vocal harmony, but also add in brass instruments (trumpet and trombone) to engage the audience. The group was awarded the Singing News Fan Award for 2014 Favorite New Trio at the National Quartet Convention in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Hyssongs at 2014 Diamond Awards

Hyssongs at 2014 Diamond Awards

The Hyssongs’ songs are constantly hitting Southern Gospel radio charts. “I Was Blind, But Now I See,” reached number seven on the Singing News chart. The Hyssongs perform at more than 250 events each year, and this year we are proud to say Creekside is once again on their schedule. If you love family trios, you do not want to miss this spirit-filled group.

Thanks Hyssongs for being apart of this week’s “Fun Fact Friday!”

SGN: What is your most memorable moment on stage?

Hyssongs: Stepping onto the main stage at the 2014 National Quartet Convention for the first time and singing to 12,000 people was definitely a highlight and memorable moment for our family. It was the same stage we had received the Singing News fan award, “Favorite New Trio,” a few hours earlier that same day.

HyssongsSGN: What draws you to the Southern Gospel music genre?

Hyssongs: We feel that Southern Gospel music touches people’s hearts like no other. Songs about God’s love, forgiveness, and His second coming, stir and challenge people and draw them to Christ. Southern Gospel music points people to their need for a Savior and encourages Christians to live a life that is honoring to God. There is no other genre that we would rather be singing.

SGN: What is your favorite Bible verse and why?

Hyssongs: Our family has two verses in Ephesians that would be our favorites. After Paul tells us to be controlled by the Holy Spirit of God, he continues in Ephesians 5:19-20: “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (KJV)

Two reasons for liking these verses are that the Bible tells us our singing and songs need be to the Lord. We don’t need to impress people; we need to please God. Secondly, we need to be a thankful people.

We are thankful and praise God for all things. We especially praise Him for allowing us to sing the greatest music in the world!

Don’t miss the Hyssongs‘ appearance at Creekside Gospel Music Convention!

Other members included Barry Hess, Gary Buckles, Art Ross, Wally Goff, Bobby Howard, Gary Valentine, Dave Thomas, David Harvell, Dave Rowland, David Hoskins and Gene Jones, among others.They had several hits including “I’ll See You In The Rapture,” “Please Search The Book Again” and “I Am Blessed.” The most memorable part of their concerts was when Dr. Goff brought out his trumpet and thrilled the audience with his playing. Now it’s time to show our appreciation for his work in Southern Gospel music.

Chuck Day inspires vocalist Kelly Coberly

Written by Staff on September 22, 2015 – 10:52 am -

Chuck Day and Kelly Coberly

Chuck Day and Kelly Coberly

Last month, the Christian Country Expo in Pigeon Forge welcomed a wealth of talent both new and seasoned! Chuck Day was on hand to receive the 2015 Christian Country Living Legend Diamond Award from SGN Scoops CEO, Rob Patz. Also appearing that week was Kelly Coberly, a Christian Country/Southern Gospel vocalist who is newer to the Christian music stage.

Kelly Coberly Joins Hey Y'all Media

Kelly Coberly

Kelly tells us the experience was amazing.

As if appearing at the Christian Country Expo wasnt a big enough blessing in itself, the Wednesday evening concert turned out to be an even bigger blessing than I had imagined. As I was headed backstage to get my music queued up for my performance, I was stopped by one of the other artists. She said “Kelly, we were just talking about you.”  She then introduced me to Chuck Day, who wrote “Midnight Cry.” She said she had been telling Chuck about how I sang “Midnight Cry” at Tuesday’s showcase.
I had never met him before, and I didn’t realize that he was there, so when she introduced us, I was a little shocked and speechless. That evening, I had the honor of singing “MidnightCry” at the concert, with Chuck Day present in the audience. I have to admit, I was a little nervous and my voice was pretty shaky, but I was so honored to have such a wonderful opportunity. “Midnight Cry” is such a great song, and to be able to sing it for the writer himself was a moment I will never forget.
Soon after, Chuck took the stage to perform, and was presented with the 2015 Christian Country Living Legend Diamond Award.  Chuck stopped by my booth later and told me “Good job!”
The entire week was a blessing, and I am honored to have been a part of the event, but Wednesday night was so surreal for me, and a huge blessing and honor.

SGN Scoops’ Fun Fact Friday with the Griffins

Written by Staff on September 11, 2015 – 10:06 am -

The Griffins

The Griffins

Welcome to SGN Scoops’ Fun Fact Friday!

This week we are excited to announce that The Griffins will be attending Creekside Gospel Music Convention 2015. They are also our guests for Fun Fact Friday!

The Griffins are a Southern Gospel trio from Spartanburg, SC. The group has been ministering in churches, events, and festivals for many years. Tim and Angela bring much to the Southern Gospel industry; along with singing, they also are official representatives of Love A Child, Inc., a Christian humanitarian organization. Angela is also news director for Global Promotions.

Recently, The Griffins made some transitions and announced Lyn Westafer as their new soprano.

We are thoroughly excited to get to fellowship with all of them in November, and know they will bring joy to everyone’s hearts that hear them sing. Check out some fun facts about the trio below.

SGN: When did you realize your calling was to sing Southern Gospel music?

Angela Griffin: “I think I’ve always known that my calling was to minister in song. I have a rich heritage in Southern Gospel music. I have often said that my mom taught me the fundamentals of music and God filled me with the anointing. I can remember as a young child my parents standing me up in a chair to sing, just so the congregation could see me. Today, I’m in full time music ministry. I’m very thankful for the calling on my life. I love the lyrics, the music and the heart-felt messages in Southern Gospel songs. It just doesn’t get any better for me!”

Tim Griffin: “When I was a little boy I attended Whitney Free Will Baptist Church in the community where I grew up. I sang in our youth choir for many years and learned to play the piano during those years. One day my dad, who was related to Elmo Fagg, brought home a stack of Blue Ridge Quartet albums a mile high. I started playing the piano along with the albums and learned hundreds of quartet songs. One Sunday in 1975 we had a quartet coming to sing at our church homecoming. I went to church early so I could play piano while they were setting up sound. I knew they were in need of a piano player and I felt certain that if they heard me play, they would ask me to play for them and they did. I knew then this was the path that my life would take, being involved in Southern Gospel music either singing or playing piano.”

Lyn Westafer: “I was raised on Southern Gospel music, with folks like the original Kingsmen and Rex Nelon hanging out at my aunt and uncle’s, and everyone singing around the piano. The summer before my senior year in high school, Brock Spear called and asked me to come be their alto. I had just been elected as head cheerleader and being a typical teenager, opted to cheer instead of singing with the Spears. What was I thinking? I have known since college that my calling was in full time music ministry; to bring people to throne of Jesus through music. The Lord has graciously given me so many opportunities to do just that, like singing with Derric Johnson’s Re’Generation for a few years. I was in Contemporary music for a while and recorded under the Brentwood Music label; however, in 2006 I found myself back in the Gospel world and sang with the Rick Webb Trio. I am so excited to be singing the gospel with The Griffins and my family is thrilled that I’ve come home. God is good!”

2.) Who is your favorite gospel singer and why?

Angela Griffin – “I could never answer this question with just one person or group being my favorite. There have been so many artists that have touched my life through a song or testimony. If you had asked me this question when I was growing up, I would have said the Mighty Kingsmen Quartet hands down! I loved them and still do. I love Karen Peck and New River ending their program with, ‘My God Will Always Be Enough.’ Anything TaRanda Greene sings I love. What a talent and testimony she has. Nelons, Gold City, LeFevres, Collingsworth, Three Bridges, Brian Free and Assurance, Triumphant, Tribute, Ernie Haase and Signature Sound, The Bowling Family and… does it get any better than the Crabb Family? I could go on and on.”

Tim Griffin – “I would have to say my favorite gospel singer growing up was Janet Paschal; as a teenager there was just something about her smile that inspired me. She was a phenominal soprano singer and I loved the chemistry she brought to the group. I fell in love with the LeFevres and then of course The Rex Nelon Singers. When I got my driver’s license and had the chance I followed that red, white and blue MCI challenger all over North and South Carolina.”

Lyn Westafer – “I’m not sure I can answer that. There are so many that I love to hear and that I’m inspired by. When I watch the Gaither Homecoming videos, I am always drawn to Vestle and Eva Mae. They remind me of my aunt. They sound like her and look like her. I love the authenticity of so many of our Gospel artists, and it’s the realness that I love more than those incredible voices.”

3.) What other hobbies do you like to do when you’re not on the road?

Angela Griffin – “Like, Post, Comment, Scroll … Facebook! I love social media and promoting Christian artists. It’s a huge part of my job at Global Promotions, but it’s my passion so it never feels like work.”

Tim Griffin – “The only hobby I have currently is being a homebody. When I am home, I enjoy listening to Southern Gospel music and playing my piano. I also enjoy surfing You Tube and staying connected with old friends and family on Facebook. When you travel the country for 40 years, you have the opportunity to experience things that many people never experience. With that being said, it’s easy for home to become your hobby.”

Lyn Westafer – “I have two home businesses and I am a vocal instructor/coach. I love both. Aside from that, I really enjoy hiking, bike riding, and I love digging in the Word of God with my Strong’s Concordance.”

imageThank you so much to The Griffins for being our guests today. We look forward to seeing them and all the artists at Creekside 2015, November 2nd through 5th. For more information on The Griffins, visit their website. For more information on Creekside, see the website or visit them on Facebook.

GOSPEL MUSIC LOVERS RETURN TO PIGEON FORGE FOR NQC

Written by Staff on August 30, 2015 – 9:10 am -

Thousands Set To Return for Seven Days of Concerts in Great Smoky Mountains Resort City

Pigeon Forge, TN – The attention of the southern gospel music industry will again be on Pigeon Forge, Tenn., from September 27 – October 3, 2015, when hundreds of performers and approximately 40,000 fans unite for the 59th Annual NQC (National Quartet Convention.)

“Coming off of our largest convention in 13 years, we are excited about what is in store for our second year in Pigeon Forge,” said Clarke Beasley, Executive Vice President.

J.D. Sumner, a gospel music legend and former backup singer for Elvis Presley, founded the NQC in 1957 in Memphis, co-producing it with James Blackwood. It later moved to Nashville and has been in Louisville, Ky., for 20 years.

Pigeon Forge, TN’s LeConte Center at Pigeon Forge serves as the home for the annual convention – a $45 million special events facility that opened in 2013. The center’s primary space will be configured for 11,000 seats for the NQC, with no seat more than 150 feet from the stage.

Featured artists are a “Who’s Who” of southern gospel music, and nightly concerts feature up to 20 acts. Among them are the Booth Brothers, Greater Vision, the Hoppers, the Kingdom Heirs, Triumphant and the Collingsworth Family, as well as prominent soloists such as Grammy Award winner Jason Crabb.

Special events during the week include the Singing News Fan Awards, a fan-voted program of Singing News Magazine, on Sept. 30, the keynote address by Dr. David Jeremiah on Oct. 2nd , the Cathedrals’ Family Reunion featuring several alumni of gospel’s most celebrated group on Sept. 30th and a Gospel Music Hymn Sing hosted by Gerald Wolfe on Oct. 3rd.

“We are excited about the enhancements we have made to the production this year including elevated seating and doubling the amount of large screens, and we are also excited about the improvements the LeConte Center has made to the acoustic environment of the Center with the installation of acoustical treatment on the walls. As much as our attendees enjoyed the event’s first year in Pigeon Forge, we are confident that they will enjoy this year even more,” said Clarke Beasley.

Admission information for 2015 concerts is available online at nqconline.com, by calling toll-free 800-846-8499 and at the door.

Visitor information about Pigeon Forge is available online at MyPigeonForge.com and by calling 800-251-9100.
