The Hoskins Family

The Hoskins Family

This is a story of “coming apart before one falls apart,” literally, and about how God has worked in every aspect of it all. It is a story of faithfulness to God and understanding the need to follow Him and obey His direction. It’s a story of courage and knowledge to know when to quit, and yet not give up. It’s a story of a family totally committed to doing God’s will and a beautiful story of a new beginning.
The beginning of this century introduced the Southern Gospel audience to the rich family harmony and exciting stage presence of the Hoskins Family. The family’s first Top Forty song was written by Angie Hoskins Aldridge and titled “Mission Of Love.” It came from a 1998 album by the same title. Their second album, Hope, in 2000, generated their first top five hit, “Joyful Morning,” which came in at number three, and as they say, the rest is history!
The Hoskins have always been a church-going family. When the church doors opened they were there. They sang in the choir, they taught Sunday School, they played the instruments and whatever else was necessary for services to be complete. They were the “Preacher’s Kids and Grandkids.”

Rick and Reva Hoskins have known no other way of life, but to serve God and sing. They have sung all their lives and naturally their daughter Angie inherited their talent. The three sang in the church where Reva’s parents pastored, until God opened their ministry to a wider audience by allowing their songs to be played on Gospel radio.
Following their introduction to mainstream Southern Gospel audiences through radio, they were immediately added to the larger venues in Southern Gospel. Churches of every size and denomination clamored for dates to have them in service.
After eight years on the road, in 2006 the Hoskins Family stopped touring and took a break from their music ministry. We recently caught up with Angie and talked about what the Lord has been doing with and for the group.

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!!!”

I’ve incorporated some of gospel music’s most talented musicians along with one of the best singer/producers out there. Angie Hoskins-Aldridge of The Hoskins Family will be producing my project and lending her awesome vocal talents.  She and I will be teaming up on a song together written by Gerald Crabb. I’m so excited to be working once again with Angie. She and I have been friends for many years and The Royal Heirs sang often on the same stage as The Hoskins Family back in early part of 2000. God has truly blessed me an as always I allowed the Holy Spirit to help guide me in song selection and the direction in which I was to go. I am also excited to be working with Pauline Patterson of Patterson Promotions on my first single release.””

Angie Hoskins-Aldridge says “Steven has been a longtime friend of The Hoskins Family and we have worked many times with him. I am thrilled to be able to go into the studio with him and produce his next project along with doing the background vocals. This will certainly be a project to be watching for”.

Songs on his new project are tunes written by some of gospel music’s best song writers including, Gerald Crabb, Debra Shepherd, & Michael Smith.

Steven’s newest recording is set to be out the first part of June and the first single will be released on Patterson Promotion’s June Compilation.
