Ed Hill -- 2009 SGMA Hall of Fame Inductee
Performer Ed Hill of Hermitage, Tenn., originally from St. Louis, Mo., attended his induction into the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame at Dollywood recently in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.
Baritone singer Ed Hill currently performs with the Prophets.
“The minister's son started singing at 15 with Humble Hearts, and later the Prophets Quartet. Ed and The Prophets become regulars on the “Gospel Singing Caravan” television series,” said Charlie Waller, SGMA executive director.
“After Ed retired The Prophets, he joined Hovie Lister and The Statesmen and later with J.D. Sumner of the Stamps Quartet.”
Ed, along with The Stamps, was a permanent member of the Elvis Presley Show until Presley's death in 1977, he said.
For those who ever heard the words “Elvis has left the building,” it was Hill’s voice that said it again and again.
Greater Vision, with Mark Trammell standing in for Gerald Wolfe, performed “The Lighthouse” to honor Hill. Dr. Jerry Goff welcomed Hill to the stage as SGMA board member Earl Eleton inducted him as the two brought the placing of the medallion around his neck with a bit a comedy.
“I want to first thank the Lord for allowing me to live a life in which I got to do what I love - to sing Southern gsospel music,” Hill said. "I hope everyone will make the same best decision as I did to accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour. That is the one important decision you can make in your life. God bless you and thank you very much.”
