Hammond is a postcard, picture-perfect Louisiana town with a population of about 20,000 people. And members of the gospel music’s The Showers Family Group are among the area’s most famous.

The group is made up of seven of Bobby and Oralean Showers ten children. But ten children is more than Oralean expected when she married Bobby.
