Carroll Cooke’s Lowesville Gospel Concerts Making an Impact

Written by Staff on May 4, 2018 – 10:07 am -

Carroll Cooke’s Lowesville Concert Series Making an Impact

Lowesville Gospel Concerts stage

Charlie Griffin of SGNScoops’ Magazine tells the

story of one of the fastest growing gospel concert series

Carroll Cooke is a man on a mission, with a passion that is manifested by his actions and his love of gospel music. But when you get to know him, you will find out he just loves his family and everyone. He has never met a stranger. Gospel music is just one of his many interests.

His music is rooted in his faith. Cooke says, “I was saved when I was 10 years old. I don’t remember the church or the message. I do remember going to my dad and mom, telling them I had to go to the altar. The preacher led me in the sinner’s prayer and I accepted Jesus into my heart and he saved me forever. The preacher asked

me to say something and all I could get out was, ‘I just want to thank him,’ ‘I just want to thank him,’ and to this day, I still just want to thank him.”

Over the years Cooke has been a singer, active church member, choir member, deacon, business owner, husband, father, and community leader. Each phase of his life has been fulfilled in so many ways. Yet in the last five years, his life has come into a richness that is being showcased in the small community of Lowesville, N.C.

His love of gospel music started at a young age. Cooke shares, “My dad (Roy A Cooke), mom (Lois Cooke), sister (now Hazel Sain), and I began singing as a quartet when I was six years old. We did this every weekend for about 15 years, then the next 40 years, I served as minister of music at different churches in and around the surrounding counties.

I have only been trying to promote our music since late 2012.

“My dad was the most influential person in my life,” confesses Cooke. “He lived and breathed music. He was the choir director at our local church, and he wanted so badly for everyone who had a desire to sing, to be able to sing, and sing well. He would have V. O. Fossett of the Stamps Baxter Music School from Dallas, Texas, come for two weeks and teach the old shaped notes, along with voice, piano, and harmony. He then would go beg other churches in the area to have Fossett come teach at their church, and he was successful in doing just that. This way, we would attend singing schools about all summer.”

Sometimes it was more than just the singing. Cooke loved the buses too. “The first concert I ever remember attending was promoted by Charlie Burke at a ballpark in Newton, N.C. I don’t even remember who sang, I just remembered the busses, and thinking what a life that would be. I was probably 10 or 12 at the time. At 75, I have no desire to crawl in one of them, I just love to see them

pull in and pull out.”

During those years, his family grew. He became a leader in the community and in the church while developing a successful business. Cooke operated the Lowesville Automotive Warehouse in the Lowesville community near Stanley, N.C. Upon his retirement in 2012, he sold the property to Living Word Ministries.

In that former parts warehouse and store, Living Word Ministries shares the gospel with regular worship services each week since August 2012. Pastor Derrick Dellinger leads a growing church that is on fire for God. Their Outreach ministries are impacting the surrounding communities by helping the needy, feeding the homeless, and loving people. They present the gospel in a way that the new Christian can understand and

the mature disciple can continue to grow and be inspired, in a shame-free environment. No attitudes or judgment found at LWM, just a church family that is excited about what God is doing in the community.

As the church grew, Cooke found a desire to reach the community in a new outreach: Saturday night Southern gospel concerts. With the encouragement of Pastor Dellinger, Cooke started in January 2013 with concerts on the second and fourth Saturday nights of each month. That is 24 concert promotions each year.

Chapel Valley Hosts #1 Celebration For The Hyssongs

Written by Staff on February 12, 2018 – 12:10 pm -

Guests of honor from all over the country attended this special dinner party to celebrate with The Hyssongs. Rob Patz, Publisher of SGNScoops and CEO of Coastal Media Group, presented the group with a plaque recognizing their No. 1 song in SGNScoops’ Top 100.

Richard shared from his heart, “Many from the Gospel music industry attended the celebration party. We are honored to call them friends. A major part of the event was to recognize those that are behind-the-scenes. The musicians are sometimes forgotten, however, we know that without them our albums would not be the same. It was neat to have them come forward individually and receive a plaque recognizing their amazing, God-given talents.”

The Hyssongs’ previous radio single “Let the Hallelujahs Ring,” written by Lee Black and Kenna Turner West, topped the SGNScoops’ Top 100 in July of 2017.

The Hyssongs have been singing together as a family for more than 21 years. They travel the United States and abroad sharing the Gospel, singing and playing their instruments for the glory of God.

“This was an unforgettable evening and a joy to spend it with so many friends. We appreciate them coming and celebrating our #1 song with us,” said Susan Hyssong. Congratulations to Dell, Susan, and Richard Hyssong!

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!

Friday SGN Scoops Prayer Focus: God’s Answers Sometimes Include Rainbows

Written by Staff on May 8, 2015 – 1:08 pm -

Hyssongs

Hyssongs

This week on SGN Scoops we have focused on Prayer. We hope that what you have read has encouraged you to spend more time talking to our Heavenly Father.

Today we have two more Prayer features. Please be sure to let these artists know that you have read their comments.

Today’s Bible verse: “Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.  And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand.” (Revelation 8:2-4New King James Version (NKJV)

Dell Hyssong Jr.

Dell Hyssong Jr.

The Hyssongs, Southern Gospel trio:

I believe that prayer is the key to moving the hand of God. The Bible clearly tells us that often we have not because we ask not. I can not imagine starting or finishing the day without prayer. Our family often stops during the day to ask God’s wisdom, guidance, direction, and blessing. The Hyssongs gather in our motor home before a concert to pray.
When Richard’s daughter was born six-and-a-half years ago with more than 22 tumors in and around her heart and multiple brain tumors, the doctors told us she would probably not make it and if she did she’d never walk or talk. We prayed and friends all over the world prayed. A book I wrote is being released this week entitled, Makayla’s Heart Moment by Moment. Get a copy and read for yourself how God answered prayer.
Everyday we see the hand of God working in our midst. Our Lord who healed the deaf, gave sight to the blind, and caused the lame to walk again, still hears and answers prayer today.

I love praying in the car while driving to work, or to sing, to church, or anywhere! It makes me more aware of the things around me and makes me feel safer. One of my biggest prayers was answered in my car as well!

One day I was crying and having a meltdown while driving home because I needed a sign from God that I was doing what He wanted me to do regarding a particular situation. I was crying so hard that I pulled over and parked the car because I couldn’t see to drive, and after a few minutes of tears and crying out to the Lord, I looked up in the sky and saw that the rain clouds were drifting away and a big beautiful rainbow was stretched across the highway.

I’ll never forget that for as long as I love. The rainbow is one of Gods majestic signs, but that day it was also very personal to my heart.
