I had a lot of musical
influences growing up, but undoubtedly,
one of the strongest was George Beverly Shea. His rich, broad vocals underpinned by a life of
consistent loving character made a deep,
lasting impact on me. And having the opportunity
to sing a duet with him was definitely
a highlight in my life. While I was there,
Bev was kind enough to say a prayer of blessing
over me. – Just ask that You keep
Your hand on this dear man… – Jesus. – And this marvelous ministry. We just ask You’ll do that. Why?
For Jesus’ sake. And to bring others to know Him
as he knows Him. Thank You, Lord Jesus. Thank You.
Thank You. Amen. – Amen. Amen.
– Amen. Love you. – Listen now
to this priceless moment my friend caught on his iPhone of 102-year-old Bev Shea
