We are proud to present The Crusade Soloist–Songs Sung by George Beverly Shea. This song book was published in 1963 by Lillenas Publishing Company and features a number of favorite hymns.

Living legend, George Beverly Shea, celebrated his 103rd birthday on February 1, 2012. Singer, composer and Grammy winner, Shea traveled the world with Billy Graham for 60 years, sharing the Gospel through song at more than 400 Crusades.

“Out of all the gospel singers in the world today, the one I would rather hear more than any other is George Beverly Shea. His song “The Wonder of It All” is a declaration of the very essence of his faith, a heart being overwhelmed by the grace and majesty of God. May this be the fervent prayer of us all.”  –Billy Graham
