2nd Generation in concert on June 28 at Antioch
BERRYVILLE -- The gospel music group 2nd Generation will be in concert at Antioch Church on June 28 starting at 6 p.m.
Based in Kansas City, the trio is known for its Southern Gospel style, close harmony and fun in a bluesy, jazz sound. They have appeared at churches, state fairs, national qurtet convetions, Silver Dollar City, TBN, and Singing in the Sun.
The group debuted on the Singing News Charts and other Southern Gospel charts in the fall of 2007 with the single, "Trouble Me No More." In February 2008, they went into the studio with Gerald Crabb as producer, to record the album "I See a City," the title track of which is their current radio single.
Their first project was "Who Wants to Praise the Lord," released in July 2005, and their first single was "Hanging On a Nail,"which drew a remarkable public response.
Sisters Elaine and Brenda have been singing Southern Gospel music since their youth. As children, they would go to bed listening to a stack of records placed on the record player, including music by The Happy Goodmans, Rambos, The Lanny Wolf Trio, Bill Gaither and many others.
Jimmy Hoskins joined this trio in April 2007. From Blue Springs, Mo., he was also raised in a musical family. In the 1970s he traveled extensively with singer/song writer, Bud Chambers, who wrote the song, "One More River to Cross," which was made popular by the Rambos in the mid-1970s. In his travels with Chamber, Hoskins met many of the greats in gospel music, including The Rambos, The Archers, Andre Crouch and others.
All three have been involved in music ministries within their local churches but always desired to be used of God in a greater capacity. They feel called on God to sing and minister to people and see lives and hearts changed.
Antioch Church is located on Ark. Hwy. 221 north of Berryville.
