Nashville, TN – The legendary Hinsons, who set a standard for Southern Gospel Music throughout several decades, still thrives today, as branches of the family tree continue to experience new, exciting growth. Eric Hinson, who traveled with the original group and has had a successful solo ministry since his departure, has teamed up with two other gifted recording artists to form Hinson Revival. His fiance’, April Nichols, a successful soloist, adds the alto part to the trio. Rod Burton, an in-demand Southern Gospel soloist, with a successful track-record (“Take a Stand”), who grew up touring with several popular artists and groups, has joined the cause.
The mission of Hinson Revival is to bring back the original Hinson material and the spirit of revival that Hinson concerts were noted for. Well known Hinson songs, such as “The Lighthouse” and “Masters Strong Hand” will be just a sampling of all the Hinson standards that will be performed, as well as, new material and showcases of these three phenomenal individual solo ministries. Each member will continue their already established schedules, but all are very excited about the new doors being opened for the new group.
Hinson Revival has chosen to sign an exclusive publicity contract with Evie Hawkins of EHA-Nashville. Evie says,”I’m honored and excited to be a part of this dynamic team. I’ve been a long time fan of Eric’s, since he was with the original Hinsons in the 80’s. April and Rod are artists that I have come to love and respect, as I become more familiar with their music and mission.
Eric Hinson notes, “The Hinson family and ministry is stronger than ever and more dedicated than ever to sharing the hope that Jesus brings to a lost and dying world. Hinson Revival is happy to be another arm of the Hinson ministries.”
Rod Burton adds, “I grew up listening to the Hinsons and loving their “in your face” ministry that they pioneered. I am beyond blessed to be just a small part of this legendary family and share their heart for ministry to those in need. We’re so excited to have the chance to work with EHA-Nashville in this ministry endeavor. They understand our hearts and our direction, and we’re excited to see where God leads us.”
Eric, April, and Rod want to extend an invitation for an evening full of fellowship, moving songs, and the spirit of revival. Join them in 2010 on the Hinson Revival Tour!
