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.

THE REAL REASON FOR THE SEASON Aug 21, 2001
OF ALL THE CHRISTMAS MUSIC I HAVE LISTENED TO OVER THE LAST 30 YEARS OF MY LIFE, I HAVE NEVER HAD SO MUCH JOY AS I DO WHEN I LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM.IT REALLY DOES TAKE ME BACK TO THE REAL REASON FOR THE SEASON. BILL, GLORIA, AND THE REST OF THE CREW DID SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB ON THIS ONE. A MUST LISTNE TOO IS C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S.. I WAS MADE TO LISTEN TO THIS SONG WHEN I WAS A YOUNGER AND WAS BEING SHALL I SAY A "BRAT"... AND THIS SONG TOUGHT ME WHAT CHRISTMAS WAS ALL ABOUT. SO IN CLOSING, I THINK IT IS SUCH A WONDER ALBUM.. DON'T BELIEVE ME? BUY IT AND TRY IT FOR YOURSELF. I PROMISE YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY.
The real reason for the season Jan 6, 2001
Sometimes we get so caught up in the gifts, the tree decorating, and cookie baking, that we forget the real reason for Christmas. Even if one goes looking for religious Christmas music, it's hard to find something that is truly inspiring. This CD is more than inspiring.
When these people sing Joy to the World they mean it. The birth of Christ means something to these singers. But, don't think this is going to be preachy or deadly serious. It's not at all. These songs are a mix of traditional favorites; familiar, but less frequently heard songs; and new songs.
One of the best songs on the album, and a song I hope will become a Christmas classic, is Mary Did You Know. It asks Mary if she knew what a special baby she had. It's song by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene, the men who wrote it. Another favorite new song is the Gaither Vocal Band's New Star Shining. It is a beautifully gentle ballad.
This CD contains a wide variety of types of music, including Bluegrass, African American spiritual, Calypso, choral singing, and more. One thing you should know, if you've never heard a Gaither concert, these folks can flat out sing. There are lots and lots of different singers, so you won't be getting bored.
There is a video version of this CD. In all honesty, I think you will definitely enjoy the CD more if you have seen the video. I play the video when I am home, and use the CD in the car. However, even without the video, this CD can stand on it's own merit.
One of Southern Gospel's Best Christmas CDs Oct 9, 2000
This is a real treasure! This disc represents what Christmas is truely about,the birth of Jesus! The warmth and sincerety is what really sets this disc apart from many is the same genre. Your Christmas will never be the same once you experience Bill and Gloria's Christmas presentation.
