Thank you The Cross 98.7 and Chick Fil-A for the great lunch for my office. You are the best in the land, and will take us to the next land.
Love this station , work nights at Mercy and it get's me too work and home. Thank you so much for the old and new gospel music.
Please join me all day on Tuesday April 14, 2020 for a day of Prayer and Thanksgiving here in the River Valley. Pray at a time that is convenient for you or several times during the day. God has been faithful to us and we have had no deaths in our area. We serve a risen Savior with healing in His wings and we need to give Him and God the Father & Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of the Father praise, glory and honor for protecting us from this demonic, evil, hellish virus that is sweeping our world. We need to praise Him or things could take a turn for the worse. Please help pass this to everyone you know, especially all Pastors. I felt impressed in my spirit we need to have a day of prayer for God to heal this nation but also a day of thanksgiving for sparing lives in the River Valley.
Just want to say thank you to Bro. Bruce and The Cross 98.7 for the $25 Colton’s Steak house Gift card this morning!

On this night 20 years ago, 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001.

In one single moment, life may never be the same. Tonight as you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, and never take one second of your life for granted. Above all, make sure you are ready for eternity.

Celebrating 50 Years Of “The Lighthouse”

The song has become a Gospel classic. It has also been around now for 50 years, and the writer, Ronny Hinson, along with Scott Godsey of Godsey Media, are teaming up to celebrate the 50th anniversary in a big way!
Written by Ronny Hinson in 1970, “The Lighthouse” was originally recorded and released by The Hinson Family in 1971, on an album titled The Lighthouse, but it was a live album by the Happy Goodman Family, Wanted LIVE (also released in 1971), that propelled the song to the top of the charts and into the hearts of Gospel music fans around the world.
According to Singing News, it was The Hinsons’ version of the song that first appeared on the chart in October 1971. Though it was released to radio by five different groups nationally, it was The Happy Goodman Family’s LIVE version that took it all the way to the Number One position in June 1972.

Here is the 1972 chart history of “The Lighthouse”:

Song Months On Chart Peak Position Artist
The Lighthouse 23 1 Happy Goodman Family
The Lighthouse 22 7 Hinsons
The Lighthouse 2 21 Coy Cook & The Senators
The Lighthouse 2 27 JD Sumner & The Stamps
The Lighthouse 2 35 Florida Boys

So, how do you celebrate the 50th anniversary of “The Lighthouse” in a big way?

On October 22, 2021, Ronny Hinson and Godsey Media will release a brand new album, The Lighthouse Fifty Year Celebration, which features a new version of “The Lighthouse” featuring Ronny Hinson.

Also releasing on October 22, 2021, is a powerful television documentary about the song, titled If It Wasn’t For The Lighthouse, which will premiere exclusively on Singing News TV.
Additionally, a video crew from Godsey Media is traveling to California to film a monumental music video on the song at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse near Pescadero, California, the location where The Hinsons’ album cover was shot in 1971.
Adding to this impressive list is Ronny Hinson’s new version of the song, which will also be releasing to radio as a radio single from the new album.

Ronny Hinson states, “When I look back on those early years when my family, the Hinsons, were basically still transitioning from California to Kentucky, when no one beyond the west coast had ever heard of us, and I realize that ‘The Lighthouse’ was our first-ever national release to radio. At a time when several other, well-established groups of national stature, who, along with the promotional efforts of major record labels behind them, were scrambling for their position at the top of the charts with their own release of the same song, I am still amazed at how well our (Hinson Family) version of the song did on the radio charts.”
Hinson adds, “From this writer’s point of view, I will always be grateful for the many artists who have recorded my song through the years. It has become one of the most recorded songs in Gospel music history, but I have always said that, though I wrote the song, it has always been Gospel music’s song. All the way from the Happy Goodman Family’s Number One rendition, down to the least-known artist to ever sing it, I say, ‘Thank you so very much!”

Scott Godsey, CEO of Godsey Media, shares, “It’s an honor to be able to present a documentary that tells the story behind this copyright that has impacted so many people. I’m excited for people to be able to take a deeper look at a song that has meant so much to them.”

50 years in the making, but on October 22, 2021 … a new recording by Ronny Hinson (The Lighthouse Fifty Year Celebration), a television documentary (If It Wasn’t For The Lighthouse), a music video, and a brand new radio single featuring the song’s writer, Ronny Hinson, will be released to the Gospel music community – and to the world – celebrating the 50th anniversary of one of Gospel music’s most beloved songs, “The Lighthouse.”
