Singer. Born in Fountain Head, Tennessee, he was a pioneering gospel vocalist known for his deep bass voice. From the late 1950s through the 1960s, he was bass singer for the Oak Ridge Quartet and was instrumental in getting live coverage of gospel music on the Grand Ole Opry and other cable television broadcasts. He is the founder of the Gospel Music Trust Fund and he created the Harper and Associates-a leading Southern Gospel talent agency in 1985.
