Ed Hill has had a long and distinguished career as a Southern Gospel baritone singer. He was a founding member of theÂ ProphetsÂ in 1959. He left them in 1965 (His replacement wasÂ Duane AllenÂ ofÂ Oak Ridge BoysÂ fame) but returned in 1966 and remained with them until they disbanded in 1973.
Ed next joinedÂ JD Sumner And The Stamps QuartetÂ in 1974 and remained with them until 1979. In 1981, he joined theÂ Singing AmericansÂ as their baritone singer. In 1987, he left theÂ Singing AmericansÂ to sing with theÂ Masters V.
The following year, Ed rejoined the Stamps and remained with them until they disbanded following the death ofÂ J D SumnerÂ in 1998.
In 2006, Hill reformed theÂ Prophets. He still sang baritone until the group disbanded in 2010 and He sang with the Songfellows Quartet.
We at SGN Scoops are saddened to hear about the passing of this Southern Gospel Legend.Â Please join us in praying for the Hill family.Â He will certainly be missed by his Southern Gospel Family.
