Southern Gospel Music - Singers - About The Music
Southern Gospel Music
Have you heard of Southern Gospel Music? Maybe you have or maybe never, but it has retained it's popularity more than most any type of music. The timeless messages survive generation to generation. However the style varies with the times like any other music genre.
Southern Gospel has a very wide range of styles. The styles are attempted to be divided up in to different categories like quartet style, southern, progressive southern and country gospel. Some borderline the more contemporary gospel, some tend to lean toward praise and worship. There is a little variety for any taste except rock of course. I have added some videos to give you a sample of Southern Gospel Music. Let me know what you think:.)
This will take you back to the late 70's when the gospel group the Hinsons debued. They were the most popular group of 80's. Kenny Hinson was an awesome singer.
1987 The Hinsons singing " The Lighthouse"
The Hinsons were the the top Gospel Music Group of the 80's. Kenny Hinson was one of the greatest singers of all time. He was offered fame in the secular venue, but he loved gospel music and chose to keep singing his passion. He passed away in his 40's he is greatly missed. Ronny Hinson is a world-renowned awarded gospel music songwriter, his music is still in high demand. I just wanted to slip a little of the old stuff now check out some of the new southern gospel artists.

Just a note:
I hope you enjoyed a preview of Southern Gospel Music. I am a singer and songwriter and I have had the opportunity to open concerts for some groups...it was allot of fun, there is allot of energy in their concerts. I have written over 200 songs ( some of them are southern gospel). I have some songs starting to getting national attention, I am so excited what God has in-store for my own ministry. I am so unworthy, but very thankful:)
