Biography

George Beverly Shea (February 1, 1909 – April 16, 2013) was a Canadian-born Americangospel singer and hymn composer. Shea was often described as “America’s beloved gospel singer” and was considered “the first international singing ‘star’ of the gospel world,” as a consequence of his solos at Billy Graham Crusades and his exposure on radio, records and television. Because of the large attendance at Graham’s Crusades, it is estimated that Shea sang live before more people than anyone else in history.
