The Hoppers to Perform at Homewood


April 11, 2019

Homewood at Martinsburg will host The Hoppers at noon on Saturday, April 20, at the Givler Cultural Center.

The Hoppers are a multi-award winning family group that has been singing to global audiences for more than 60 years with appearances ranging from presidential religious inaugural ceremonies and New York's Carnegie Hall to singing conventions and church platforms. The group has performed throughout the United States as well as in Israel, Europe and Africa.

It’s blend of harmonies and song choices have created a legacy of musical excellence embraced by leading pastors and event organizers. Known as America's Favorite Family of Gospel Music, The Hoppers are favorites on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours, and their recordings frequently land at the top of the BILLBOARD sales charts and The Singing News radio charts.

Comprised today of family members Claude and Connie, son Dean and his wife, Kim, and son, Mike Hopper, The Hoppers were formed in 1957 in the rural farm town of Madison, North Carolina, 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. 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. 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.

A limited number of tickets are available free to the public and can be obtained by calling Homewood's Marketing office at 793-1313.

Allan Hancock is sponsoring The Hoppers' event.
