The blurb from the back cover :
What does it mean to sing the Gospel ? It means getting up at 5 :00 in the morning and breaking your neck trying to get ready with your eyes half closed. It means carrying amps, mikes and countless other odds & ands into a camper that just isn’t big enough. It means traveling down the highway, getting lost, and arriving minutes before you go on.
Most of all, it means standing in front of a packed house and telling the good news about a man named Jesus. It means watching people, young and old, give their life to Christ. It means tears rolling down your face while the words of the song forms a lump in your throat. It means meeting teens & young people after the concert who have a thousand questions that need answers. It means friends & faces you some how never seem to forget. It means coming home, collapsing on the sofa, exhausted but happy and ready for the next concert, where you start all over again. At least that’s what it means to us, THE SINGING HUTSONS.
Roger 21, who is the organist of the group, can be found, when not singing or laying the organ, driving his red convertible with his white German Shepherd in the bucket seat next to him.
Sissy 17, is the « shorty » of the group. Although under 5 foot tall, she can burst out a song as good as anyone twice her size. Like some people have said, she’s the rose between two thorns.
Steve 18, is the tall talented one of the group. He can be found almost anywhere with a guitar trying to write a song, or rearranging an old one.
Then there’s the occasional heart warming song by Mom & Dad. They always seem to be there with their advise, suggestions and most of all, with their Love & Backing.
Singing the Gospel means all of this. It means standing on stage in front of a crowd of peaople, singing songs of Christ, Love, Salavation, and Heaven. It means singing the TRUTH.
This album has been recently proposed for the Manic Mark Magical Musical Moment Award. See Manic Mark's blog HERE where you'll be rewarded by two songs excerpt from the album.
No address on the back cover, but a precious little information that should be a lead : Roger Hutson, when not singing, is driving his red convertible with his white German Shepherd in the bucket seat next to him. Any witness?
