“Then Sings My Soul”: Highlighting the Music of Billy Graham’s Crusades

March 4, 2020

At Billy Graham’s Crusades, the role of leading worship was given to George Beverly “Bev” Shea and Cliff Barrows, alongside other team members. Just as Mr. Graham shared the Gospel through sermon, they did so in song. Through their ministry, these friends were dedicated to traveling the world in hopes of opening hearts to the love of Jesus Christ everywhere they went.

Occasionally, Billy Graham would join his friends in song. Watch the video below to hear Billy Graham, George Beverly Shea, and Cliff Barrows sing “This Little Light of Mine.”
