Induct Sammy Hall Into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame

Sammy Hall was the forerunner of modern contemporary Christian music as he was the first to introduce contemporary Christian music to gospel music. There was no music like that when he started his ministry in 1969, so he wrote his own music in order to reach young people that weren’t being reached by churches in a new way that they could relate to. Sammy's 40-year ministry has touched hundreds of thousands of people whose lives have been forever changed.



  • Anonymous I was introduced to Sammy in 1974, he was the first singer I know to do contemperary gospel, besides Gary Paxton.

    I brought Sammy into the high sclools in my town 3 times to do about 9 day assemblies and 9 very successful crusades with 100's of decisions for Christ .. Just Amazing how God worked through this man of God. what a great singer and song writer
