More About Bill Gaither & Homecoming Friends
The pages of history have been written by ordinary people who had something extraordinary to say with their lives. Bill Gaither is just such an individual… an Indiana-born kid with an insatiable love for music who grew to become an industry leader who would change the course of gospel music history through the songs he has written and through his influence as a mentor for other artists.
An avid fan of gospel quartets throughout his childhood, Bill founded his first group, The Bill Gaither Trio, in 1956, while he was a college student. He began teaching English in 1959 because his musical aspirations couldn’t support him full-time… yet. In 1962, Bill did one of the best things he has ever done. He married Gloria Sickal, who became the best writing partner Bill could have found anywhere. The couple spent the first five years of their married life juggling full-time teaching jobs, writing, singing, recording and publishing until music became their full-time career in 1967.
The collaborations of Bill and Gloria have resulted in more than 700 popular gospel songs, including the hymnal standard “Because He Lives,” “The King Is Coming,” “Something Beautiful,” “He Touched Me,” “It Is Finished,” “There’s Something About That Name,” “Let’s Just Praise The Lord,” and “Loving God, Loving Each Other.” Bill and Gloria have collectively won eight Grammy Awards and more than a dozen nominations, and they have received more than two dozen Dove Awards from The Gospel Music Association, earning the title of Gospel Music Association’s “Songwriter of the Year” eight times.

Gospel Music Jan 24, 2007
I love to listen their music cause they put you in the mood to receive the Holy Spirit. They have such great voices and I could listen to them for hours.
Beautiful Jun 3, 2002
I've just seen parts of the Kennedy Homecoming on TBN Europe and all I can say is 'WOW!' Larnelle Harris and Sandy Patti's duet, 'I've Just seen Jesus', brought tears to my eyes and me straight to my computer so that I could buy a copy of the Kennedy Homecoming just for that song alone.
It's perfect. Have you ever come across a song that the very first time you hear it you know it's a classic? Well this is one such song. The other songs I heard were great too, but this one took my breath away......
Kennedy Center Homecoming Jan 25, 2002
There are no words to describe this selection. "Ive Just seen Jesus" is the most moving song I've ever heard. Sandi Patty and Larnelle Harris are so wonderful together. I think this alblum should be re-introduced as the times are so perfect for the music selection.
If you like Gospel.... Nov 1, 2001
I haven't bought this CD yet, but I am going to. I have seen the Kennedy Center Show. I haven't heard anything more beautiful, more moving than "I've Just Seen Jesus!" I was transfixed, mesmerized, any word you can think of to describe the kind of impact that song makes on you. If you don't buy the CD for any other reason, you must buy it for just that one song. You will want to hear it again and again.
Best Homecoming CD of them all! Aug 16, 2001
We own every Gaither CD there is. This is our favorite by far. "I've Just Seen Jesus" will bring tears of joy to your eyes. Wonderful. Get the videotape as well.
