George Beverly Shea Has Gone Home

George Beverly Shea, who regularly opened for Billy Graham at his crusades for nearly six decades, died last night. He was 104.

I grew up listening to the records my mom and dad had of George Beverly Shea.  I used to sit and listen, totally mesmerized by his deep, rich voice.

But to be honest, I had no idea he had such a vast impact on so many people.  The following was recorded on his 98th birthday.  In it’s entirety, it is nearly 48 minutes long, and a blessing to watch.  But the first 5 minutes or so are a wonderful tribute to his life and legacy. 

What an extraordinary man!  We thank God for his wonderful ministry and his personal example.

I remember him from Billy Graham too. I enjoyed the beginning of this clip.
