BILLY GAINES LIVE
The Music & Mission of Billy Gaines
Painfully shy as a young boy, Billy received the call to ministry as a teen. With his very first group, Living Sacrifice, he toured as a backup vocalist for gospel legend Danniebelle Hall, former lead vocalist with Andraé Crouch.
Even more doors opened when he moved to Nashville in the mid-1980s and was hired as a songwriter for Lorenz Creative Services.
Beginning in 1986 faith and commitment began to bear fruit.
Two-time Dove Award winner Billy Gaines has inspired audiences worldwide for more than four decades, spreading the gospel in song through television, radio, albums, and live performances, including multiple national Promise Keepers Conferences.
A masterful performer, he has a unique vocal style that spans musical genres and has been described as “smooth, captivating, and anointed.”
SOUGHT BY TOP ARTISTS
As a sought-after studio vocalist, Billy has been featured on recordings by numerous artists including Peabo Bryson, Vanessa Williams, CeCe Winans, Amy Grant, DC Talk, Carman, Nicole C. Mullen, and many more. He has also released a solo album, Ten Thousand Angels, an inspired recording of 10 beloved hymns.
TESTIMONY OF FAITH
Yet even more powerful than Billy’s musical gifting is his testimony of faith. An ordained minister, he has observed God’s hand on his life time and time again, shepherding him through incredible victories, shattering losses, and even near-death experiences.
Along side the late Sarah Gaines landed a five-album deal from Benson Records. The duo quickly rose to prominence as R&B gospel trailblazers, garnering six No. 1 singles on contemporary Christian radio as well as a video (“That Is Why”) that soared to No. 2 on the BET video chart. Their eponymous debut album yielded several Top 10 CCM hits, including “Come Drink at My Table” and “You Are Faithful.” Later albums would deliver classics such as “Always Triumphant,” “How Great His Heart Must Be,” “I Found Someone,” “Friends Indeed,” and “While You Wait.”
SHARING THE GOSPEL
“It is my call and mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ though the principles of the Word of God set to music, and to bear witness to, and give testimony of, the amazing things that He has done in my life.”
