(NASHVILLE, TN) – The Hoppers, Gospel Music Hall of Fame members, will take their signature family harmonies overseas to Europe for four unforgettable nights of music, family and fellowship as they make appearances in Northern Ireland and the Netherlands during their “Something Good” tour in support of their latest release, Count Me In.
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 Yorkâ€™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 Americaâ€™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 55 years of music so don’t miss this chance to catch America’s favorite family of Gospel music, THE HOPPERS!
