His voice could inspire faith

Re: An Unsung Hero -- Heard By 230 Million, Ian Hunter, Jan. 07, 2011.
I was able to hear George Beverly Shea sing in person at a Billy Graham Crusade at McMahon Stadium in Calgary in August 1981. Johnny Cash also appeared that evening as a featured guest and sang gospel. As I left the stadium, it was the deep echo of Mr. Shea's baritone that still echoed in my ears. It is a voice that inspires faith. A rare and precious gift.
