Chris Freeman Set Out On New Venture to Honor The Hinsons

Nashville, TN (July 15, 2014) Forty years ago this month of July, a young, virtually unknown Chris Hawkins, stepped into a Nashville recording studio to begin work on her very first professional gospel music project “Touch of Hinson, Glimpse of Glory.” As a newly arrived member of the already well established group known today as The Original Hinsons, her vocal talents combined on that recording with that of Kenny, Ronny and Larry Hinson, to help catapult The Hinsons into even greater popularity.

Within only 5 years of that initial recording, Chris’ exceptional vocal qualities made her a two time recipient of the award for “Queen of Gospel Music”, from the Singing News Fan Awards and helped to win The Hinsons the prestigious title of “Favorite Group of The Year” from the Singing News Fan Awards in 1979. Chris Hawkins Freeman was eventually inducted along with The Hinsons, into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2006.

Over the many years that followed her inception into the hearts and souls of gospel music fans, Chris Freeman has ultimately gained the respected notoriety she deserves as the legendary vocal prodigy who went on to inspire the careers and vocal styles of countless other female artists in the Southern Gospel Music industry and helped to create the sound of the award winning family group The Freemans.

On July 21st, 2014, Chris Hawkins Freeman, will once again step into the studio and begin the process of reliving her legendary past, as she begins the recording of her very first solo project in tribute to her beginnings with The Hinsons. She will not only recapture some of the songs she sang with The Hinsons in the seventies, but she will be sharing the story of the life changing experiences that helped to shape her into the gospel music icon she is today.

Forty years of legendary talent, yet her history is still in the making. Get ready for the new Chris Freeman solo project coming soon and be prepared to fall in love all over again with the female artist that changed the gospel music industry forever.
