John Hall (February 7, 1939 - September 29, 2020)


John Hall sang bass for the Inspirationals in the late 1950s and for the Stamps Quartet in the early 1960s. This was after the group had been purchased by JD Sumner and James Blackwood from Frank Stamps while Sumner was still touring with the Blackwood Brothers. In 1965, Sumner and Hall swapped places. Sumner began traveling with the Stamps and Hall went to the Blackwood Brothers where he remained until 1968.

After leaving the Blackwood Brothers, Hall launched a solo career. He appeared on many of the Gaither Homecoming videos during the 1990s.
