Shannon Childress Passes Away

Shannon Childress, former pianist for the Hoppers, passed away yesterday after a lengthy battle with cancer.  Childress was an integral part of the Hoppers rise to prominence in the 80s and 90s.  He not only served as the group’s pianist, but also wrote several popular tunes for the group, such as “Anchor To The Power Of The Cross” and “Milk And Honey” and occasionally provided bass vocals as well.  Prayers and condolences to the Childress family in their time of loss.  The Singing News story can be found here.
