George Beverly Shea, Billy Graham’s Singer, Dies at 104

Posted:

The man who sang to millions of Christians at evangelist Billy Graham's crusades, has died at the age of 104.

A spokesman says George Shea died Tuesday night after a brief illness.

Shea was well-known as a gospel soloist before he and Graham met in the early 1940s. 

He joined Graham in 1947 and stayed until Graham's declining health ended most of his public appearances nearly 60 years later.

Shea was known for his trademark rendition of "How Great Thou Art."
