    Jim Hamill, one of Southern Gospel's all-time great lead singers, sang professionally for over 50 years and until shortly before his death, was still going strong. A native of Memphis, son of Rev. James E. Hamill, for many years pastor of First Assembly of God in Memphis, Jim joined the Weatherfords in the early 1950s. And then came times with the Blue Ridge Quartet, the Rebels, the Oak Ridge Quartet, the Rebels again, and finally, for almost 28 years he sang the lead for the Kingsmen.
