Richard Wayne Mullins
Birth: Oct. 21, 1955
Richmond
Wayne County
Indiana, USA
Death: Sep. 19, 1997
Ottawa
LaSalle County
Illinois, USA

Singer, Songwriter, Musician. Born near Richmond, Indiana, Rich was into genealogy research of his family's history and revered and honored the memory of those who came before him and made him who he was. He began writing music at an early age. Talent of musical instruments came naturally to him. One song he wrote was made popular by Amy Grant in 1982, "Sing Your Praise to the Lord". He recorded an album called "Canticle of the Plains" in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, but based it in the American West. His song "Awesome God" has been the most well-known and loved by more people. He spent the last couple of years of his life teaching music to Navajo children on the Navajo Nation Reservation in Windrock, NM. He was devoted to the Navajo Nation and considered his teaching more important than making money. He also believed serving God, with his music and ministry, were above fame and fortune. He gave most of his earnings to charity. A quote of his from a question about how to stay strong in the faith "Read your Bible, pray everyday, and you'll grow, grow, grow." When he would sign autographs, he would always write "Be God's" above his signature. Nine days before his death, he went to an old, abandoned church with a cheap cassette recorder and recorded nine songs with just his guitar. These songs became "The Jesus Record", and they reveal the inner peace he was finally feeling. Mullins was killed in an auto accident.

Your music and God given talent is what brought me to Jesus. I sing your songs still today. I wish I could have met you in Andover, when you were there. You saved me, by singing praise to the Lord and showing me Christ love through song. Our God Is An Awe...(Read more)

Your death was overshadowed by Princess Diana's and Mother Theresa so I never realized you had passed away till years later. The movie about your life that they released this year was so very good. Gone too soon.
