August 30, 1965 Billy Graham hosted the Crusade for Christ in
the new Astrodome in Houston. The best singers from local church
choirs were chosen to be in his choir. I was one of the fortunate
ones, one of four from my church. I was 23. To date 2016, I still
have the sheet music from that crusade. How Great Thou Art was
sung by George Beverly Shea at every crusade and and it became
a major Gospel song in America and worldwide.
Shea was born in 1909 and died at age 104 in 2013. In this video
he is about 75. To listen to him sing click here
Mr. Shea was laid to rest in a casket made by prisoners from
Louisiana State Penitentiary (aka Angola). Click here for the story.
