George Beverly Shea, 104, of Montreat, North Carolina, the beloved soloist of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), died this evening (Tuesday, April 16, 2013) following a brief illness.

Since George Beverly Shea first sang for Graham in 1943 on the Chicago radio hymn program, “Songs in the Night,” Shea has faithfully carried the Gospel in song to every continent and every state in the Union. Graham’s senior by ten years, Shea devotedly preceded the evangelist in song in nearly every Crusade over the span of more than one-half century.

According to a news release, Shea was the recipient of ten Grammy nominations, a Grammy Award in 1965, and was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Grammy organization in 2011. He was also a member of the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame (1978), and was inducted into the Religious Broadcasting Hall of Fame in February 1996. Shea was also inducted into the inaugural class of the Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists’ “Hall of Faith” in 2008. 

“I first met Bev Shea while in Chicago when he was on Moody Radio,” said Billy 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. My prayer for his wife, Karlene, and his children, Ron and Elaine, is that God will strengthen them during this time.”

Born in Winchester, Ontario, Canada, where his father was a Wesleyan Methodist minister, Shea’s first public singing was in the choir of his father’s church. Between Crusade, radio, and television dates in many countries, he sang at hundreds of concerts and recorded more than 70 albums of sacred music. At age 23 he composed the music to one of his best known solos, “I’d Rather Have Jesus.” 

“Even though Bev was 10 years older than my father, he never acted his age,” said Franklin Graham. “He was absolute fun to be with. Bev was one of the most gracious and unassuming men I have known. He was always encouraging and supportive, a man of deep faith and strong commitment to Jesus Christ.” 

Shea is survived by his wife, Karlene, and his children from his first marriage, Ronald and Elaine. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Erma, who died in 1976.
Ron, born in 1948 in Chicago, graduated from Trinity International University in Deerfield, Ill., in 1971. For more than 30 years, Ron has been an associate in Crusade ministry through the BGEA, assisting in preparatory work for evangelistic crusades involving Mr. Graham and more recently for Franklin Graham’s ministry. He is married to the former Cathy Ford. 

Details on the funeral service for Shea will be forthcoming.

3801 Lancaster ~ Dr Kermit Gosnell's House of Horrors


These very words ... shouted out of Dr. Kermit Gosnell's own mouth...

as shared b​y ​a ​former Gosnell patient, Davida Clarke in the film project '3801 Lancaster'. Davida's account can be seen and heard in this film about the Women's Medical Society in Philadelphia, PA. Dr Kermit Gosnell's 'House of Horrors'. 

To view the film, seek help and hope....or share your story...visit 3801lancaster.com or click  here.

In Jan 2011 Dr ​Gosnell, 72, a Philadelphia-based abortion doctor, was charged with 8 murders - ​7 babies and 1 woman. His clinic had not been inspected - or visited- for 17 years.

​And...if you only tune in to broadcast t.v. news, you will have never even heard the name "Gosnell." According to an April 4 open letter demanding coverage of the Gosnell trial from 20 conservative leaders:

"Since the Gosnell trial began three weeks ago, ABC, CBS, and NBC have given the story ZERO seconds of coverage on either their morning or evening news shows. They have not covered Gosnell once since his arrest in January 2011, and even then, only CBS did so."

Why do you suppose that is?

The trial of the abortion practitioner has been so gruesome and vivid in its accounts of the late-term and live-birth abortions that it has shocked the conscience of the nation, despite a relative ​lack of media coverage​ outside of local media and conservative and pro-life news outlets.

Gosnell faces 43 criminal counts, including eight counts of murder in the death of one patient, Karnamaya Monger, and seven newborn infants. Additional charges include conspiracy, drug delivery resulting in death, infanticide, corruption of minors, evidence tampering, theft by deception, abuse of corpse, and corruption. Gosnell could face the death penalty if convicted and he faces a mandatory minimum 20 years.

If only ​walls could talk....

Davida Clarke became pregnant as a result of rape...her story from behind the closed doors at 3801 lancaster is as follows....

While laying on the table...Davida ​Clarke understandably ​decided against an abortion.

SHE CHOSE to change her mind!

SHE CHOSE to save her baby!


Davida tells ​Dr. Gosnell....

"I can't do this."

Her next words and actions - describe Gosnell's REACTION to her BOLD and timely CHOICE.

Davida shares .... as she moves both arms and fists up and down ... like she was swinging a gavel to pronounce a sentence...

"He starts pounding on ​my ​legs.....and saying over and over"....



Davida continues.... " I was outnumbered ... all these women came in the room at that time.... I was tied to the bed...and couldn't do anything. The next thing I know... I'm sitting in a chair with another girl beside me. I only know that I was very groggy and not pregnant. I was crying and asking for 'my baby'. They just ignored me."

​D​AVIDA CLARKE's  CHOICE  was ignored!​

Authorities searching the facility last year found bags and bottles holding aborted babies scattered around the building, jars containing babies’ severed feet lining a shelf .

It was reported that medical examiner, Dr. Gulino, spent five days just cataloging the containers of fetal parts. He also examined ​feet and ​'lower extremities 'found in 'see-thru' jars of formaldehyde belonging to five babies Gosnell killed. The ages of the unborn children ranged from first trimester to 22 weeks and the latter baby was possibly viable.

Severed feet...and lower extremities stored in jars of formaldehyde??

Does that sound odd to you?
What was his issue with feet and lower legs?

The human leg is the entire lower extremity or limb of the human body, including the foot, thigh and even the hip or gluteal region; however, the precise definition in human anatomy refers only to the section of the lower limb extending from the knee to the ankle.

I keep going back to Davida's story in the film '3801 Lancaster'. I can't dismiss her words ...can't stop seeing her raging arms and clinched fists... as she tries....years later to describe Gosnell's REACTION to her plea to SAVE HER BABY! 

Her words and actions... describe a man who became instantly ANGRY! Angry enough to POUND on her 'lower extremities' ...with both of his arms and clinched fists.....while shouting these telling words at her, as she lay tied to his table of mass murder...



Do you hear what I hear?

Do you hear his strange CHOICE of words....

Call me crazy.....but mark my words....

SOMEONE has don​e the same thing to him....at an impressionable age....

SOMEONE pounded on his 'lower extremities' and shouted at him ...



SOMEONE....SOME INCIDENT.... made Gosnell callous and angry enough... to literally .....without any sense of remorse or emotion ....bring horrible 'demise' to little babies.

As if he considered it his duty...his responsibility....his right....to take these little lives into his own hands....and pronounce his judgement against them!

HE LITERALLY acted out his own words
​on ​Davida Clarke.....and millions just like her!

He chose to STOP her fetus FROM BEING a viable 'LITTLE BABY'!

And then....

He saves those little feet and legs....as a reminder?...a victory?....a trophy?

Why else would he save them in jars of formaldehyde?

​He didn't save any other 'parts' so well preserved. ​It was reported to the jury today that Gosnell kept at least 47 babies in odd places at his clinic such as cat food jars and other containers.

And yet... he preserved severed feet and lower extremities in jars of formaldehyde ...lined on a shelf!

God forgive us for allowing this #*)! to go on for 17 years right under our noses.

I want to make myself perfectly clear here... Every single baby that this frame of a man murdered... in or out of the womb.... is in the hands of God.  


"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."  ~ 2 Chron. 7:14
