George Beverly Shea

This week, a wonderful man, George Beverly Shea, finished his earthly race at age 104, and went to be with the Lord.  The song for which he was perhaps most well known was "I'd Rather Have Jesus."  I thought it would be a blessing to others to hear him sing this and tell how it came to be.  Click here to this 1965 recording to listen and be blessed.  Here's another one, recorded in 1983.  His voice just got richer through the years of singing for the Lord.  One more, from 1987.  I noticed this was a slightly lower key.  I'm sure he is having a wonderful time singing praises to Jesus in heaven today!
