Kenny Hinson a gift from God
Kenny Hinson and the Hinsons were one the greatest gospel groups of all time. I remember them mostly from the late 1970's and early 1980's. I was saddened to here that Kenny Hinson had passed away in the mid 90's. Although he has gone on to be with the Lord, his smooth God-given voice can be heard here in this collection. I wish iTunes would put up all of the original Hinsons collection, especially "Lift the Roof off - Live." Kenny was really at his best on that album. I am proud to have this collection of the Hinson Hits.
My hat's off to whoever chose these songs for this particular project as Kenny lead either one or both verses of 11 of the 12 songs here. The only place you'll hear better singing is Heaven to be sure.
The Hinsons are truely one of the greates gospel groups I have ever seen. Kenny & Ronnie Hinson are the greatest song writers of all time. I will forever enjoy their music.
About The Hinsons
A family group from Salinas, California, USA, made up of brothers Chris Hinson, Larry Hinson and Kenny Hinson plus sister Yvonne Hinson, the unit made a big impact on gospel music fans in the 70s. They had been professionally active since the late 60s prior to this breakthrough, making their name as guests on the Florida Boys’ The Gospel Singing Jubilee television programme. Their numerous albums for Calvary Records drew increasingly strong gospel chart returns and critical approval as the decade progressed, their song ‘The Lighthouse’ winning both a Singing News magazine and Dove Award as Best Gospel Song. They were also among the 1975 nominees for the Dove Awards’ Best Mixed Group category. In the late 70s Yvonne Hinson left the group, her role taken by Chris Hawkins.
