Cliff Barrows, longtime music and program director for the Billy Graham Crusades, first met Billy Graham in 1945 while on his honeymoon with his first wife, Billie, near Asheville, N.C. When the music leader failed to show that evening, Cliff was introduced to Billy Graham as one who would be able to lead the music.
He joined the Crusade team and, over the years, organized thousands of Crusade Choir members in song. He led more people in singing than anyone has ever done before or since.
