Bill Mann, often referred to as the "Golden Voice of Methodism," is an international artist who has performed in concert halls in England, Scotland, and Ireland as part of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

Born in Bessemer, Alabama, Mann has been singing since age 10 and has acquired a reputation "for being one of America's greatest singers of hymns, gospel songs and religious music." He has used his "fine tenor voice and keen interpretation of all music" to sing in concert, evangelistic campaigns, and ecumenical gatherings as well as in more than 3,000 churches since 1946.

Throughout his career he has recorded over 150 songs on LP records, tapes, and CDs. He has sung before four Presidents of the United States, Two Prime Ministers, and the Queen of England. His sacred music ministry allowed him to perform with musical greats such as Ethel Waters, Mahalia Jackson, Henry Mancini, George Beverly Shea, Jerome Hines, and many others.

He once sang for Helen Keller. She placed her hands on his throat so she could "hear" him sing. Bill says that he remembers that as one of the highlights of his career.
