November 7-8, 2017 – The Hoppers

This multi-award winning family group has 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 churches. 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. Known as America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music, they are favorites on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours, and their recordings frequently land at the top of the charts. Comprised of family members Claude & Connie, son Mike Hopper, and son Dean and his wife, Kim and their daughter Carly, 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. Kim is particularly noted for the excitement she brings to any live performance – her unmistakable, rafter-ringing soprano vocals are not to be missed!
