The Hoppers celebrate 50th anniversary with 'The Ride'
THE FIRST release on Word Entertainment's reactivated Canaan Records
will be 'The Ride' by The Hoppers. The veteran family group
recently celebrated their 50th year of music ministry. The Southern
gospel label, set up in 1965, was the original home for The Hoppers. Said Dean
Hopper, "This gives me hope that this could be the third big surge in
our music now that we have somebody like Word who is reactivating one
of the greatest vaults in our business."
