Brock Speer

Gospel Singer. Born Houston, Alabama, he was a member of the Speer Family Singers, known as the “First Family of Southern Gospel music”. While still a small boy in the late 1920s, he began to perform with his family on stage. As he matured, his smooth bass voice became a trademark of group’s distinctive sound. Following the death of his parents in the mid-1960s, he assumed leadership of the Speers. Maintaining the tradition started by his parents, he guided the Speer Family introducing gospel music to literally millions of people across the nation. He was also active within the gospel music industry and served as president of the Gospel Music Association in the 1970s. He died Nashville, Tennessee, and is a member of the GMA Hall of Fame and of the SGMA Hall of Fame
