Hall Of Fame 2014

The Southern Gospel Music Association is pleased to announce the eight individuals who are the 2014 inductees to the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Each of the inductees have left their own special touch on Southern Gospel music, and as a result, it is only fitting that his or her contributions and work be forever honored.

Southern Gospel Music Association president Arthur Rice says, “As we have been with each inductee class, we are very excited to have another group of Southern Gospel pioneers and leaders come into the Hall of Fame membership. The Southern Gospel Music community has certainly benefited from the work and dedication of these people through the years.”

The newest members of the Hall of Fame are…

 

Colbert Croft (deceased)

Eddie Crook

Claris G. “Cat” Freeman (deceased)

Paul Heil

Claude Daniel Hopper

Warren Lester Roberts (deceased)

Inductions and tributes for the deceased members of the “Class of 2014″ will take place during selected evening NQC performances.
