Ricky Atkinson

At SGN Scoops, we love to ask artists questions! On Fridays, they tell us what their favorites are and we get to tell you, our readers.

For today’s Friday Favorite, we asked Ricky Atkinson of Ricky Atkinson and Compassion, “What is your favorite hymn and why?”

Ricky’s response:

“‘How Firm A Foundation’ because it was often the hymn of choice when my mother sang in church, while I was still a very young boy…

It means alot to me personally knowing everything we do is all based on the foundation of our faith.

Also, as a writer, I appreciate not only the blessed message, but the depth of lyric by the writer, Robert Keene.
The words, melody, and chord progressions create a beautiful masterpiece.”

What is your favorite hymn? Tell us today on SGN Scoops Facebook page!

Hoskins Family

The Hoskins Family

Welcome to the SGN Scoops Friday Favorite! Today’s favorite comes to us courtesy of Angie Hoskins Aldridge, lead singer of The Hoskins Family. Rick, Reva, Angie and Abigail have been hitting the Southern Gospel charts with their power vocals and three-generation family harmony, bringing songs like “God is Big,” “Whenever I Hear His Name,” and, “Land Of Endless Tomorrow.”

Vonda Easley asks: “Angie, what is your favorite scripture and why?”

Angie: Good Morning!  One of my favorites….Mark 11:24. This is one of my favorites because it lets me know God is concerned and cares about our wants and desires!!!”
