Video: Jim Hamill Memorial Concert

Last year, several Southern Gospel artists and promoters heard about Jim Hamill’s health problems and decided to put together a concert to help raise funds for his medical costs. He passed away late last year, so the concert was renamed the “Jim Hamill Memorial Concert.”

This concert took place last Friday. Several artists, including Calvary’s Way, the Old Paths Quartet, the Diplomats, the Original Liberty, Randy Miller, and the Mark Trammell Trio donated performances. Several members of these groups–Mark Trammell, Jeremy Peace, and Randy Miller come to mind–were former Kingsmen, while Eric Phillips is the son of former Kingsmen tenor Ernie Phillips.

The Hamill family has ongoing expenses from his illness; donations can still be mailed to Hamill’s widow, Jan Hamill, 126 South Joyce Street, East Flat Rock NC 28726.

Here are two videos of clips from the concert:
