Anthony Burger

Gospel pianist Anthony Burger was born in Cleveland, TN. When he was a baby, just learning to walk, he tipped his walker over and landed on the old furnace his family used for heating. Burger was burned on his face, legs, and both hands, third degree burns that could have taken his life. Through long months of painful treatments, his parents held to their faith while doctors doubted the child would recover well enough to have the use of his hands. By the time he was three years old, Burger had proved that faith and prayer could be stronger than medical science. He not only had the use of his hands -- but he could play the piano. It didn't take many years for people to notice just how musically talented he was.

Anthony Burger studied music at the Cadek Conservatory in Chattanooga, TN, adding practiced mastery to his natural skills. He was the youngest artist the university had ever accepted. At the conservatory, Burger had lessons in classical music, but before his tenth birthday he had already settled into a love for old-fashioned Southern gospel. In his teens he became a member of a gospel group called the Kingsmen. He recorded nearly two dozen albums with the group. Burger completed his first solo release, Anthony Burger at the Lowry Organ, in 1975. His music captured the interest of fans so well that they nominated him through Singing News Magazine as one of the Top Five musicians in Southern gospel. In 1980, he won the award and then held tight to it for the next ten years in a row.

Burger released a few more recordings in the '80s before working on about 50 videos with Bill Gaither's Vocal Band between 1993 and 2000. Over the years, Burger has won a number of awards for his music, including being named Musician of the Year by the Southern Gospel Music Association, claiming more than one Gospel Voice Diamond Award, and the highly treasured Dove Award.

On Anthony Burger's albums, Southern gospel fans can find cherished hymns like "What a Friend We Have in Jesus," "Just as I Am," "This Is My Story," and "Shall We Gather at the River." ~ Charlotte Dillon, Rovi

I couldn't have said it better, Pamela!!!
I have listened to him for years, magical, mystical, heavenly, majestic does even touch the way he spoke to millions with his music. God Ordained him and then took him home, why so yound we will never know but I will bet he has a Golden Grand Piano up there and He is playing for everyone! What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see and be able to Hear Anthony again! Hallelujah!
I love to hear him play .

I purchased one of his songbooks and to sit at the piano and play his arrangements are so calming. Love his playing.
He really has the talent!!!! No doubt he's playing in Heaven!
I just found out about him; only to lose him. He is with the Lord now. Here is a very well written bio about him.

Rest in Peace, brother. 1961-2006. So short a time!
Anthony Burger was so very talented. I love hearing him play the piano. He is now with our Lord and Savior.
Anthony Burger all day!

This just reminds me that there are no accidents in life, there is a reason 4 everything.
@ andy f., No, I'm positive that faith and prayer had ALOT to do with him being healed so that GOD could use him to HIS glory. Where do you think the knowledge that doctors have comes from? :) GOD bless and keep you and know that GOD will be there if you just call on HIS mighty NAME. :)
Awesome pianist.you heard.words. a s . h e pLayed.

Matthew 6:30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Wtih God nothing is impossible, Faith, Andy can do the impossible.
Through long months of painful treatments, his parents held to their faith while doctors doubted the child would recover well enough to have the use of his hands. By the time he was three years old, Burger had proved that faith and prayer could be stronger than medical science.

No, I'm pretty sure it was all the medical science that helped him, really.

Good music though.
The ministry of Anthony Burger lives on. When I want to go to that place where God speaks to me, I choose his Pandora station. Refreshment for the soul comes from a talent that was completely ordained by God. If you want a glimpse of what we will hear in glory on morning, this is the place.
He my hero I love him
smokey185

Thanks, Pandora. You have brought a whole new way of listening and enjoying - to my music experience! I am truly grateful!

Anthony was a wonderful performer. I saw him at a meeting in 2004 in Dallas. I am so glad we have these recordings to tie us over until we join him in the Kingdom.
wonderful, miraculous work of God!!!!! I love piano music and He is truly anointed by God our Father
BEAUTIFUL!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Praise God from whom all blessings flow...AMEN
Another great bio on Pandora, for a Johnny Come Lately to instrumental praise music like me. Before Pandora moved on to the next artist a minute ago, I thought the album covers pictured, for Mr. Burger, all features his HANDS prominently, maybe on purpose?. It will be interesting to know how much Old Scratch may have "seen Anthony coming," and tried to "take him out" through that accident; yet he was no match for God, if so...Let us remember THAT, for ourselves, during our day today.

Again, Amen--

Amen! More blessings... .
We all come to gather at one point in life that only He chooses, He truly is an inspiration to mankind. Its what we as individuals choose to do with what we are given. I believe that he has given each of us a talent of some sort, just some more than others. Some of us are blessed with a guiding supported life from the very moment of life, some of us are given the life to struggle and fight through the toughest but yet still make it through and continue to touch our lives. Thank You.
We loved him and still do, especially his music. Lovely mother and dad now deceased. His death was one of the greatest sorrow ever experienced. God is good and knows best. His love conquers all

sherrylord
Just stubled onto Anthony this morning. His music lives on and is still spreading. That's how Spirit works. Love to all.
someone has great talent to be able to play like this man does,! but to learn to play when your bliind is only a God given talent, it is really great to see that he recovered from the accident and has such a GREAT talent, and i would like to encourage any one to play or learn to play and while your young or you will regret it and who know's you could be the future ANTHONY BURGER God Bless YOU! and GOD BLESS AMERICA
