Meeting the Hoppers
Contributor Two Contributor Two
I have been a fan of Southern Gospel music all my life. It is the only music I listen to. About six months ago, I found out that the Hoppers would be appearing at our church in October. I was so excited because the Hoppers are one of my very favorite groups. I have all of their CDs, and I love to sing along when I play their music at home. My favorite songs are “Shoutin’ Time in Heaven” and “Marriage Supper of the Lamb.” Finally October 21 arrived, and my parents and I arrived at the church early so that I could get a front-row seat. The Hoppers sang for about two hours, and the crowd loved every minute of it. During one song Claude even stepped off the stage and shook the hands of those of us on the front row. After the concert, they all took the time to talk, sign autographs and pose for pictures. Kim was so sweet, and she let my dad take a picture of her and me. It was an exciting night that I will never forget!
