Bill Gaither Biography

Bill Gaither born William J. Gaither, is an American singer and songwriter of Southern gospel and Contemporary Christian music. He was born on March 28, 1936, in Alexandria, Indiana, the U.S.A to George and Lela Gaither.

He attended Anderson College, to which he had transferred after one year at Taylor University. He graduated from Anderson in 1959 with a major in English and a minor in music, after which he worked as an English teacher. He quit his teaching job in 1967 and worked full-time in the Christian music industry. This was after a few years trying to manage both a music career and his full-time teaching job.

Gaither first began singing with the Bill Gaither Trio in the 1950s. He formed the group while a college student at Anderson College. It consisted of Bill, his sister Mary Ann, and brother Danny Gaither. He recorded his breakthrough song “He Touched Me” in 1964. In about 1964, Mary Ann’s place was taken by Bill’s wife, Gloria.

In 1962, Bill married Gloria Sickal, who became the best writing partner Bill could have found anywhere. The couple spent the first five years of their married life juggling full-time teaching jobs, writing, singing, recording and publishing until music became their full-time career in 1967.

Bill and Gloria have collectively won eight Grammy Awards and more than a dozen nominations, and they have received more than two dozen Dove Awards from The Gospel Music Association, earning the title of Gospel Music Association’s “Songwriter of the Year” eight times.

After decades of unprecedented musical successes, Bill and Gloria still operate their business from Bill’s hometown of Alexandria, Indiana, and they dwell in the same home in which they raised their family. They live a lifestyle focused on investing their resources into eternal things.
