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.
TheÂ Hyssongs’Â songs are constantly hitting Southern Gospel radio charts. â€œI Was Blind, But Now I See,â€ 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 â€œFun 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, â€œFavorite New Trio,â€ a few hours earlier that same day.
SGN: What draws you to the Southern Gospel music genre?
Hyssongs: We feel that Southern Gospel music touches peopleâ€™s hearts like no other. Songs about Godâ€™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 donâ€™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!
