Two-time Dove Award winner Billy Gaines has inspired audiences worldwide for more than four decades, spreading the gospel in song through television, radio, albums, and live performances, including multiple national Promise Keepers Conferences. A masterful performer, he has a unique vocal style that spans musical genres and has been described as “smooth, captivating, and anointed.”

Painfully shy as a young boy, Billy received the call to ministry as a teen. With his very first group, Living Sacrifice, he toured as a backup vocalist for gospel legend Danniebelle Hall, former lead vocalist with Andraé Crouch.

Even more doors opened when he moved to Nashville in the mid-1980s and was hired as a songwriter for Lorenz Creative Services. In 1986, he and the late Sarah Gaines landed a five-album deal from Benson Records. The duo quickly rose to prominence as R&B gospel trailblazers, garnering six No. 1 singles on contemporary Christian radio as well as a video (“That Is Why”) that soared to No. 2 on the BET video chart. Their eponymous debut album yielded several Top 10 CCM hits, including “Come Drink at My Table” and “You Are Faithful.” Later albums would deliver classics such as “Always Triumphant,” “How Great His Heart Must Be,” “I Found Someone,” “Friends Indeed,” and “While You Wait.”

As a sought-after studio vocalist, Billy has been featured on recordings by numerous artists including Peabo Bryson, Vanessa Williams, CeCe Winans, Amy Grant, DC Talk, Carman, Nicole C. Mullen, and many more. He has also released a solo album, Ten Thousand Angels, an inspired recording of 10 beloved hymns.

Yet even more powerful than Billy’s musical gifting is his testimony of faith. An ordained minister, he has observed God’s hand in his lifetime and time again, shepherding him through incredible victories, shattering losses, and even near-death experiences.
