Willie Banks & The Messengers

Gospel legend Willie Banks was born in Raymond, MS, where he started singing at age five; a alumnus of acts ranging from the Jackson Southernaires to the Flying Clouds to the Trumpets of Joy, he formed his own group, the Southernaires, in 1968. Upon signing to the Peacock label, they debuted with the album Heaven Must Be a Beautiful Place; in 1972, however, Banks dissolved the group, forming the Messengers and signing on with the small Nashville label HSE; the group's albums, including God's Goodness, For the Wrong I've Done, Mother Why and Still in Charge, were mainstays of the Billboard gospel charts throughout the decade to follow. On July 6, 1981, tragedy struck when the Messengers' tour van plunged off a highway near Atlanta, plummeting nearly 50 feet; one member of the group was killed and Banks' body was thrown from the wreckage, where he lay near death for several days. After a long recovery period, he and the Messengers signed with Malaco in 1988, issuing Look at the Blessings. Banks died February 1, 1993, although the Messengers continued performing well after his passing. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

I was raised in a missionary Baptist Church and we had wonderful down home gospel music. One of my favorite groups is The O'Neal Twins that have a sound that reminds me of Willie Banks & the Messengers. These gifted gospel singers lift me to a higher spiritual plain.
I find it wonderful that the music I have been raised on still has a great impact on my life. Thank you Willie Banks & the Messengers, also all the gospel music world. :)

Doesn't seem like twenty yrs. I was blessed to see him a couple of times, before and after the accident. He never lost a beat. He had one lung, one teeth, and a voice that no man could match. He could sit and out sing anybody. I remember him saying "There's no retirement in GOD's work" ,and he sang until the end. I still play his songs. Every song have a message.,and l still miss him. God broke the mold after He made Banks, for he was one of a kind.
God have been so great to me the storm have been heavy in my life but I'm a fighter and my god have been my training he is a great training because if haven't been for him I would have not made it out of them heavy storm I been thrown so when things look bad and u think it's over and trust in Him he will bring u through because he is your saver ....love u so much my good thanks for everything u have done for me and my love ones
one thing I love so much about the GOD I serve is that he gives us all chances in this life he don't even judge us like the people in this world . he gives us freewill if we overdue it then its on us

I have been doing Gospel Radio for over 30 years and I still love to play these old songs by Willie Banks and the Messengers and saints still call in saying how they love his music. Gospel songs in this 2013 has forgotten about using God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost in there words it's all about the beat and the word higher power, spirit, very little about the name JESUS just take a listen you will be able hear what am talking about. Be Blessed and Remember God Is Still In Charge of My Life!
Thank God for the old gospel singers. They are always great to listen too.
listen to some good gospel music it bring back so many wonderful memory of my mother ,grandmother how they would sit and praise god but I know that they are up in heaven in that heavenly choir missing you all so much rip.
I love that old time sound and the Lord has been good to me.
He sounds like he's singing about me. "Thank you Jesus for healing me, saving me, delivering me, raising me up. Father you are so good to. What have I done to deserve a God like you? Hallelujah!"
Thank God for all his Grace, Love, Mercy. Singing praises unto God is our blessing always know that we must always keep our faith in our creator and continue to remain steadfast in the Lord.Amen. Amen. Amen.
God will always be in charge of my life Amen Amen Amen
I love all his songs my best one is u die young
