Canada's Double Portion Biography
Canada’s Double Portion from North Battleford, Saskatchewan is a unique group in many ways. This 5 piece Gospel band is made up of parents Duncan & Debbie Hemmerling and 7 of their 10 children. After several years of uncertainty, they are thrilled to be back touring again with concerts and festivals south of the border and across western Canada in 2022. 2023 marks the 41st year of ministry for this veteran group and they are ready to live life again!
Originating with Duncan and his three sisters, Canada’s Double Portion has crisscrossed the continent from Newfoundland to British Columbia, Georgia to Alaska. Three decades of travel have provided unique experiences like singing on the Grand Ole’ Opry stage, backing up Johnny & June Cash at a Cash/Rivers family reunion and performing with many of Gospel music’s premier groups at North America’s largest events. However, experience has taught this family that the smaller things in life are often the most rewarding!
Canada's Double Portion have been nominated for Group of the Year numerous times and have received multiple awards for Album, Song of the Year and Live Band of the Year in the Gospel Music Association Canada.
They are thankful for every opportunity they have to share the Gospel!
