A member of one of the most visible groups in Southern Gospel Music, Ben Speer traveled and sang with the Speer Family for 62 years.
Though often viewed as the comic of the group, Ben served the family well-as a vocalist, musical arranger, and sometimes as pianist. His unique arrangements kept the Speers at the top of the gospel music industry, often seeking to perfect a new sound while preserving the quality and integrity of Southern Gospel deep in his family's roots.
In 1992, Ben retired from regular road performances, but continued his work in Southern Gospel Music as a record producer and as a music director for the Gaither Homecoming video series.
