George Beverly Shea

Gospel vocalist George Beverly Shea spent most of his 45-year career closely associated with evangelist Billy Graham. His best-known song is "How Great Thou Art," which was written by Rev. Stuart K. Hine in the 1920s. Shea is also a distinguished writer of popular hymns such as "The Wonder of It All."

Born the son of a Wesleyan Methodist minister in Winchester, Ontario, Shea was raised in the New York area and spent much time as a youth singing in church choirs. Following high school, he briefly attended Houghton College in New York, dropping out only after his family's financial difficulties necessitated it. Shea began working as a clerk, but received voice lessons and sang in churches and on local religious radio stations. The latter led to an audition for the Lynn Murray Singers, but he declined their invitation since they sang secular music. He married his high-school sweetheart in 1934 and moved to Chicago. After ten years in the Windy City, Shea got national exposure when he was hired to appear on Club Time, a show he sang with for the next eight years. During this time, Shea also became prominent in the Youth for Christ movement of the 1940s and '50s. He hooked up with Graham in 1947 and signed to RCA Victor in 1951. Southland Favorites received a 1965 Grammy for Best Gospel or Other Religious Recording (Musical). Shea was inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame in 1978. ~ Sandra Brennan

What a great singer. How mightily the Lord used Him for so many years. Now he is with the Lord. I remember seeing him in New York City in the crusade there in 1957. He was a young man then!

I have listened to him sing since I was a little girl. I always love the richness of his voice and beautiful tone in which he sings. I am 66 yr old now and I still like to hear him sing.

George Bevely Shea is one of the most, if not the most awesome people in Christian music. All of his songs, as far as I know, are at the core of Christian doctrine with the message of Gospel of Christ on the Cross and the blood sacrifice. They all remind us of God's grace and His complete redemptive power. I love this man of God. He has changed countless lives through his ministry. Thank God for his dedication and commitment.
