Mr. Shea was a gospel music treasure who, through many decades traveling with the Billy Graham Crusades, sang in front of more people around the world than perhaps any gospel artist in history. His rich voice will always resound in our memories, as will his positive, gracious spirit. To say he will be missed is an understatement.
“I have lost a dear friend this week, and the gospel music world has lost a legend. Bev modeled what every gospel singer should strive for – a dedicated, well-trained and disciplined life – and he did it with class. You will be missed, Bev!” – Bill Gaither
