Terry G. Hall has been singing most of his life. At the age of 11, he began singing bass in his home church youth group in Kentucky and developed a love for Southern Gospel Music that has continued to grow through the years.
In the 1970's and 1980's, Terry sang bass with several different groups and quartets. In 1988, he rededicated his life to the Lord and about that same time, he decided to pursue a solo music ministry, filling in as bass for quartets occasionally. In the spring of 2000, he felt led to pursue a full time ministry and moved from Kentucky to the Pigeon Forge area of Tennessee. He developed a street ministry there and sang on weeknights to the tourists and locals who happened to come by. He was free to travel and sing in churches on Sundays.
In 2002, Dollywood heard about Terry and called him to come sing in one of their shows. He sang bass with a group there during 2002 and 2003 and also did a gospel music program in Dollywood's chapel every day. In 2004, Terry teamed up with the Incredible Christmas Place in Pigeon Forge to present gospel music in their courtyard. He also filled in as their Santa Claus, and sang Christmas music as well as gospel music. The year 2005 found him singing in various locations in the area as well as singing full time on the road. Since 2006, when not on the road, he is singing in front of the First Baptist Church in Pigeon Forge. These concerts are free to anyone who would like to stop by. He also has a full schedule on the road, performing more than 300 concerts per year in more than 30 states.
In his concerts, Terry uses a wide variety of singing styles, which include old spirituals, a little country sound, as well as fun time songs for the young and young at heart. AS always, though, his heart is in the good old Southern Gospel sound. With his broad voice range (over 4 octaves) Terry is able to gear his concerts to include something for everyone, from children to senior adults, and has even recorded himself as a "one man quartet." No concerts are ever alike, as he has no program, but sings what the Lord lays on his heart. He is always ready and eager to share the testimony of how the Lord healed him on cancer, and he will challenge the hearts of those attending his concerts. It is hard to not notice the variety, enthusiasm and sincerity that are put into each service.
Terry's ministry is based on the belief that the lost and dying are not always in churches, but there is a need for ministry on the streets and in the everyday world. He and his wife, Janice, travel nationwide to ring his music to churches, RV resorts, retirement communities, nursing homes, festivals, fairs, prisons, flea markets, street corners or anywhere the Lord leads them to bring the gospel to those who might not otherwise hear it. They invite you to visit them on the website, (terryghallmusicministry.com) by email or by phone, or come by to see them at a concert whenever possible.
