(Madison, NC) July 30, 2014GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame members, The Hoppers, are excited to announce their A Night To Remember Tour in select cities during August 2014. The legendary group is partnering with talent agent and tour producer Israel Berry, President/CEO of The Berry Agency to present these special evenings.

Filled with music from America’s favorite family along with a choir (in select cities), special moments throughout the concert and special guest Karlye Hopper (Dean & Kim’s daughter), this is an evening designed for the entire family.
“We’re looking forward to sharing a ‘Night to Remember’ with our friends this August,” shares Dean Hopper. “It’s a special treat to perform with Karlye, our daughter, and I know the audiences will enjoy the special surprises we have in store.”
Partnering with The Berry Agency’s Israel Berry was an important piece of the puzzle in securing these concert dates and venues. “I’ve admired The Hoppers for so many years,” stated Israel Berry. “To be able to partner with them to bring this evening to audiences is a special treat. It’s going to be great!”
Tour dates for the A Night To Remember tour can be found at as well as their regularly scheduled appearances.
Multi-award winning family group 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 United States as well as in 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. Known as America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music, they are favorites on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours, and their recordings frequently land near the top of the BILLBOARD sales charts and The Singing News radio charts.
In 2012, the group was inducted into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame alongside Aretha Franklin, Ricky Skaggs, Love Song, Rex Humbard, and Dallas Holm.
Comprised today of family members Claude & Connie, son Dean and his wife, Kim, and son Mike Hopper, The Hoppers were formed in 1957 in the rural-farm town of Madison, NC, and have grown continuously for decades, touching countless lives around the world. A cancer survivor, Connie has been honored with the prestigious Marvin Norcross Award, in addition to numerous industry and fan honors; and she has been 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, and her unmistakable, rafter-ringing soprano vocals have taken The Hoppers to new heights for many years.
The Hoppers are celebrating over 5 DECADES of music excellence – don’t miss this chance to catch America’s favorite family of Gospel music, THE HOPPERS!

MARK LOWRY 8X10Atlanta, GA – Christian music concert promoter, CNS Entertainment has announced plans to host an exciting Winter concert event, featuring popular Christian comedian, singer, songwriter, Mark Lowry, and special guests, The Nelons and The LeFevre Quartet. This exciting evening will take place at the Trinity Baptist Church, located at 800 Hammond Drive in Jacksonville, FL, on Thursday, January 30 at 7:00pm.

Mark Lowry is known and loved around the world as a trusted voice in the realm of Gospel music and beyond. His legacy is forever sealed as an innately entertaining communicator who can, at once, make audiences laugh, cry and think. Mark is a singer, storyteller, humorist, author and songwriter, whose lyric to “Mary Did You Know?” resulted in one of the most loved modern Christmas songs of this century.  This captivating song, which he co-wrote with Buddy Greene, has been recorded more than 400 times by artists from every genre. Mark has spent more than 20 collective years with the Grammy-award-winning Gaither Vocal Band serving as the sidesplitting comedic sidekick for Bill Gaither through live concert tours and the best-selling Gaither Homecoming video series and television airings (now more than 150 volumes strong). A deep thinker and student of theology with an outrageous sense of humor, Mark’s life work includes a long list of recordings and DVDs reflecting a wide range of influences. Mark’s on-stage antics and music will, no doubt, delight all those attending this exciting evening.

For three decades, The Nelons have been bridging the traditional sounds of Southern Gospel with contemporary Nelons 2011 Ainfluences that inspire listeners of all ages. The group, who has enjoyed much success as a part of the prestigious Gaither Homecoming Tour and Video Series, continues to cross generational gaps, presenting rich harmonies that have been embraced by audiences from all walks of life.

The LeFevre name has been synonomous with Gospel Music for the past century. In 1921, the original LeFevre Trio began traveling and singing across the country and set the standard for quality and professionalism in what would become known as Southern Gospel Music. For decades, the LeFevres blazed new trails in Gospel Music turning out songs and singers that would become legendary. Today, the LeFevre name is stronger than ever. The LeFevre Quartet has received numerous award nominations and honors and delights audiences night after night with their smooth, rich harmony as the Quartet continue the tradition of the LeFevre family heritage.
This Winter concert event will be one the entire family will enjoy, and will provide a wonderful way to kick off the new year. Make plans now to join Mark Lowry, The Nelons and The Lefevre Quartet at the Trinity Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL, on January 30 at 7:00pm. Complete information is available online at Tickets may also be purchased by calling 800-965-9324
