History Podcast (ANS) – Listen to Dan Wooding’s moving interview with the late George Beverly Shea. Shea, who, although he was known as America’s Beloved Gospel Singer, was actually born in Canada. He was considered “the first international singing ‘star’ of the gospel world.” This came as a consequence of his solos at Billy Graham Crusades, radio exposure, records, and television presence. Because of the large attendance at Graham’s Crusades, it is estimated that George Beverly Shea sang live before more people than anyone else in history.
