Famous composer George Beverly Shea turned 103 this week

I just saw this interview with George Beverly Shea on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website.

Shea, a Charlotte resident, turned 103 years old this week.

Shea is famous for penning mainstay hymns of tent revivals such as “I Love Thy Presence Lord,” and “I’d Rather Have Jesus” in the 1940s, especially as part of Billy Graham’s ministry team.
