“A Life Well Lived” George Beverly Shea, the booming baritone who sang to millions of people who attended Billy Graham crusades, passed away Tuesday evening following a brief illness. Shea was 104 years young. Bio – George Beverly Shea was born in Winchester, Ontario, Canada, where his father was a Wesleyan  Methodist minister, Shea won a Grammy Award in 1965.  Between Crusade, radio, and television dates in many countries, George Beverly Shea sang at hundreds of concerts and recorded more than 70 albums of sacred music. At age 23, Shea composed the music to one of his best known solos, “I’d Rather Have Jesus.”  (Billy Graham) “I first met Bev Shea while in Chicago when he was on Moody Radio,” said Graham. “As a young man starting my ministry, I asked Bev if he would join me. He said yes. And for over 60 years we had the privilege of ministering together across
the country and around the world. Bev was one of the most humble, gracious men
I have ever known and one of my closest friends. I loved him as a brother.”
