The Hyssongs will present a concert of gospel music Sunday, May 11, at 6 p.m. at West Rockport Baptist Church, 545 Park St.

The Hyssongs travel full-time throughout the United States and Canada, sharing the powerful medium of music. Dell, Susan and Richard Hyssong encourage and delight audiences wherever they appear with their family vocal harmony, lively energetic style, humor and brass instruments (trumpet and trombone).

The group has been singing together as a family for more than 15 years. In that time, the Hyssongs have received many accolades for their quality, inspirational Southern Gospel sound. The group was voted Top 5 New Trio during the 2013 Singing News Fan Awards. They also have consistently placed songs on Southern Gospel Top 40 charts, such as the 2013 single “Oh What A Name."

The Hyssongs were the cover story in an issue of Christian Voice Magazine in 2012 and have been featured in Singing News Magazine several times. The group has also been featured on Paul Heil's "The Gospel Greats" radio program. The Hyssongs perform at more than 250 events each year throughout the United States and Canada.
