The Hyssongs, an award-winning gospel trio based in Rockport, will record one of the three grand prize winners of The Singing News 2017 Radio Songwriters Search competition. The family group will record “You Came,” co-written by inspirational hearing-impaired singer/songwriter Sherry Anne with William Griffith.

“We not only look forward to recording it, but singing it night after night. Sherry Anne is obviously a gifted songwriter and we look forward to seeing what God has for her in the future,” said patriarch Richard Hyssong.

Sherry Anne, born with a bilateral hearing and speech impairment, sings with an elegant voice that blends a passion for Southern Gospel-style, country and blues music with her deep faith. She sings and shares her testimony of overcoming obstacles early in life to now performing nationwide. Sherry Anne recently released a video of “Silent Prayer,” to which she adds sign language as a song that offers hope to those challenged by life circumstances, including hearing loss and grief.

They are known for their vocal harmony, humor and brass instrument musicianship. They were awarded the Singing News Fan Award for Favorite New Trio in 2014 and have been in the Top Ten Trio of the Year category every year since then.
