  1. Bill was my English teacher in high school at Alexandria. I later had the good fortune of being the high scholl math teacher to each of his children. What a great family.
    One can not overstate the musical talent he commands. But when you know him personally, it is so easy to see his songs authentically reveal the depth of the sincere person. And to him its all about the person Jesus the Christ.
    Thanks Bill for all you taught me.
    ps I’ve been Catholic all my life. We’ve shared Christianity for as long as I’ve known you. But I don’t think you were ever a fellow Catholic

  2. I have watched You Tube with the GAITHER. MUSIC with the stay at order most of the days and night go to sleep with it own. This has been the best way I have kept from having cabin fever. I am 79 so I was considered high risk but I have been up lifted every day by this music. God Bless Bill and Gloria.

  3. Even listening to Bill and Gloria for 50 years. My favorite is still “The King is coming”
    I think it always will be. I hope Guy Penrod rejoins your group. You guys touched me like none other. Thank you Jesus for giving us the Gaithers

  4. Have loved Bill Gaither and his family from the start. Awesome music and singers. First heard him as the Bill Gaither trio. Awesome music!!! Favorite is ‘Sometimes it takes a Mountain!’

  5. We had the honor of seeing the Gaithers last night, Feb. 11th, in Pasadena, Texas, and I tell you, it Blessed me beyond what I ever expected. This is probably the 4th one I have attended over the years and it Blessed me so much and I truly believe it’s because we no longer hear great gospel messages in music like what we used to hear. I miss gospel music so much. Thank you Gaithers and Mark Lowry for his surprise appearance and sang Mary did you know! So blessed!

    • My wife and I were there also for that concert. They are always so uplifting, but this one was just awesome. It was just great timing for a blessing from God. May the Lord continue to bless Bill and his group with the talent and good health to continue this ministry.

  6. We are looking forward to seeing The Gaither Vocal Band in Clarkston, MI in March 18. Then we also have tickets for the weekend Familyfest in Gatlinburg in May.
    Bill has blessed so many thousands of people over the years and I pray that God will continue blessing him with more healthy years of Christian service.

  7. Thank you for the many years of gospel music, don’t believe it would be what it is today without Bill & Gloria Gaither. Sorry I do miss Mark Lowery being with your quartet. Thank you for all you done to bless our lives with gospel music. My mother is 96 with Alzheimer’s & still enjoys your videos, if she’s having a tough day just play one of the videos & she calms down! May the Lord continue to bless you & the many gifted musicians
