Who Is Hosanna Plath? New Details On The Accomplished Violinist And 'Welcome To Plathville' Star
Entertainment And News

Who is Hosanna Plath? That's been the question on everybody's mind since Welcome to Plathville debuted on TLC, the network that once focused on things like childbirth and dinosaur bones, but now focuses on messy relationships, hypogonadism, multiple birth families, and metabolic issues with their accompanying bariatric procedures. So what makes Hosanna Plath stand out from the rest of the Plath clan?

Welcome to Plathville is the latest TLC reality show that focuses on a family that most would consider "strange and unusual." The Plath family — led by matriarch Kim and patriarch Barry — say on the show they are "devout Christians," and though they don't get into detail about which denomination of Christianity they follow, there are some photos of the family posing in front of a Baptist church. What makes them remarkable, however, is not their adherence to Christianity, but their practice of isolating their children from pop culture. In many of the previews for the show, for example, viewers are left to marvel as the Plath children — Hosanna included — are left to wonder who people like Justin Bieber and Tom Brady really are. 

That said, though the family has no exposure to pop culture, they do have a YouTube channel that promotes their gospel music. Each family member plays an instrument, so let's look at the violinist, Hosanna Plath. 

1. Who's Hosanna Plath? She's the oldest Plath daughter

Though Hosanna Plath has an older brother, Ethan — who is the official oldest of the Plath children — she's the oldest Plath daughter. She is one of 9 children — and would have been one of 10 had her younger brother, Joshua, not been killed in a tragic accident. 

2. Hosanna Plath plays the violin 

Hosanna Plath is known, in her family band, for playing the violin. She's an accomplished violinist and actually turned down going to college to continue to play the violin. (Since she married her husband, Timothy Noble, she's also played as a duet with him.)

3. Her decision to not go to college drew some criticism from the fandom

In the Welcome to Plathville pilot, it was revealed that Hosanna Plath had a musical scholarship to college, but turned it down to continue to play with the family band. This decision drew some fire from the fandom, especially since it was later revealed that Kim Plath — the matriarch of the family — graduated from FSU

4. Hosanna Plath's husband, Timothy Noble, is also a musician

In 2016, Hosanna Plath went to the National Quartet Convention. And it was there that she met Timothy Noble, the man who would become her husband. Noble plays piano, and he often plays together with his wife as a duet. They dated for two years before they ultimately got married in June 2019. 

5. Is there tension in the family? 

According to reports, there's tension within the family because Hosanna Plath was considered the "musical prodigy" of the family. Because she's so talented and accomplished, Hosanna Plath reportedly taught her siblings how to play their respective instruments. So when Hosanna married Timothy and the duo moved to Ohio — thus, away from the family — the Plath family band seemed to languish. As such, rumors began circulating that there was a fracture in the Plath family. 

6. There may be some good reasons as to why Hosanna Plath was raised so "strict"

Sometimes, it really is the devil you know. While there certainl, is no shortage of people who criticize the Plath family for raising their children — including Hosanna Plath — so strictly, there are some good reasons for their method. As revealed on the show, Kim Plath drew a hard line against having alcohol served at her son, Ethan's, wedding, because she admitted she was a recovering alcoholic. Her biggest fear, she said, was that her children would walk down the same path that she walked down. 

While, no doubt, that is a bit extreme, we can certainly understand the desire to protect your children. We look forward to hearing more from Hosanna Plath in the future.
