Item description for A Tribute to Jake Hess (DVD) by Bill & Gloria Gaither and Their Homecomi...
Overview For the past 50 years, Jake Hess has been one of the most influential personalities in gospel music history. The lead singer for one of gospel music's most celebrated quartets, The Statesmen, and founder of the first contemporary Christian group of its time, The Imperials, Jake was more than a musical pioneer - he was a trailblazer. And while he continually led the way in his industry, his truest success was his shining example of genuine humility and integrity both on and off the stage. In spite of countless obstacles and health battles, Jake Hess came out singing every time. Through this video tribute, Bill Gaither commemorates the music and the legacy of his hero and dearest friend, Jake Hess.

More About Bill & Gloria Gaither and Their Homecomi
Gaither Homecoming Friends is the name applied to a series of videos, music recordings and concerts, which are organized, promoted and usually presented by Christian music songwriter and impresario Bill Gaither. To date, the Gaither Homecoming title is applied to more than 60 videos, dozens of music recordings, and an annual concert tour that drew more than half a million fans in 2004 (the most recent year for which statistics are available).
On February 19, 1991, the Gaither Vocal Band had just wrapped up a recording session in a Nashville, Tennessee, working on an album called Homecoming, which featured many of the great voices of southern gospel music: The Speers, the Gatlins, Jake Hess, The Cathedrals, Howard & Vestal Goodman, Buck Rambo, Eva Mae Lefevre, James Blackwood, Hovie Lister, Jim Hill, and J.D. Sumner & The Stamps. After the session, the artists stayed around to chat, swap stories and sing old standards around the piano. The impromptu session was recorded on video and later published. The recording was so well received that Gaither began a series of professionally-produced videos with larger gatherings of gospel musicians.
Today Bill & Gloria Gaither and their Homecoming Friends is a favorite staple of Gospel Music audiences around the world.
Reviews - What do customers think about A Tribute to Jake Hess (DVD)?
A nice musical tribute to a top Christian singer. Oct 3, 2007
This is a nice musical tribute to a top CHristian singer. Jake Hess is a personal favorite as both a singer and Christian. Bill Gaither pays homage to someone he also considered a great personal friend. My only regret is that I wish it were double or three times as long!
Jake Hess - A wonderful Christian man Jun 9, 2007
As one listens and sees this DVD one gets a feel for this wonderful christian man. I watched the whole DVD through and then let it play again It is certainly a great testimony. I showed it completely again to our Cell group who were also touched by the content. I am 100% pleased with this purchase.
