George Beverly "Bev" Shea is a Grammy-Award-winning bass-baritone gospel music singer and the composer of several hymns. Shea is considered "the first international singing ‘star’ of the gospel world," as a result of his solos at Billy Graham Crusades
and his exposure on radio, records, and television. According to the Guinness Book
of Records, Shea holds the world record for singing in person to the most people ever,
with an estimated cumulative live audience of 220 million people. Shea has been a
musical mainstay in Graham’s crusades since 1947.
Happy Birthday George, and may God bless!
