peggie hoskinsPeggie Hoskins & SoulShine

Bred on gospel, soul, funk rock, and blues in Atlanta, Georgia, singer/songwriter Peggie Hoskins began "performing" at a young age. She experienced her first recording at the tender age of four and the future diva could be heard belting out gospel tunes in near perfect pitch. A songbird was born. She began at the age of 6 studying piano and music theory and continued on until just out of high school. In early 1994 while competing in a local competition, Peggie grabbed the attention of Five Star Productions of Nashville, Tennessee. With this group she began performing professionally traveling all over the southeast. Peggie now tours with a talented roster of musicians known as SoulShine and they know how to kick start a party, get your feet moving! The group covers all styles of music from all eras and add a generous helping of incredible harmonies. Their style ranges from Pop, Rock, Funk, Jazz, R&B, Oldies, Motown, Soul, Country, and Blues. They cover tunes by Heart, Aerosmith, Mother's Finest, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lenny Kravitz, The Cars, Janis Joplin, Doobie Brothers, David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, Pat Benatar, Journey, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Duffy, Adelle, Prince, Tina Turner, Van Halen, Loverboy, Joan Jett, Alanis Morrisette, Led Zeppelin and many more!! You can find them performing for enthusiastic audiences all around the Southeast.


Top Gun

TOP GUN is a 1986 American action drama/romance film that needs little introduction. Directed by Tony Scott, the film stars Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards and Tom Skerritt. Maverick (Cruise) is a handsome pilot. When he encounters a pair of MiGs over the Persian Gulf, his wingman is clearly outflown. On almost no fuel, Maverick is able to talk him back down to the Carrier. When his wingman turns in his wings, Maverick is moved up in the standings and sent to the Top Gun Naval Flying School. There he fights the attitudes of the other pilots and an old story of his father's death in combat that killed others due to his father's error. Maverick struggles to be the best pilot, stepping on the toes of his other students and in a different way to Charlie, a civilian instructor to whom he is strongly attracted. The makers of Top Gun reached their apex when they cast Tom Cruise as Top Gun’s high-altitude hotshot - a guy whose outsized ego writes checks his body can’t cash, to quote one of the film’s better catch phrases. Watching Top Gun now past its 25th anniversary you can see why Cruise, then a baby-faced 23, became the biggest star of the era. His thousand watt smile is the film’s best special effect. He is confident and charismatic, a daredevil riding right into the danger zone, convinced he’s got the right stuff even as Val “Iceman” Kilmer tosses locker-room insults at him. Cruise is Maverick. Maverick is America! Adults of a certain age will remember how this film spawned a fashion movement of aviator glasses and bomber jackets and what a huge star Cruise legitimately was. It also scored with audiences on the strengths of its visuals, especially the vertigo-inducing aerial sequences.
