1920 - 1999
As a part of the Singing Speer Family, Brock Speer was literally born into the Southern Gospel Music industry. While still a small boy in the late 1920s, he was called on to represent the family on stage.
Brock's dedication and devotion to his family never wavered and, in time, his smooth, bass voice became a trademark of the legendary group's distinctive sound. Following the death of his parents in the mid-1960s, Brock assumed leadership of the Speers. While carefully maintaining the tradition started by his parents, he guided the Speer Family into uncharted waters, introducing gospel music to literally millions of people across the country.
Brock was also active within the gospel music industry, serving as president of the Gospel Music Association in 1972.
Brock Speer will be forever remembered as that soft-spoken singer who carried on a family legacy, singing Southern Gospel Music the way it should be sung-with class and the highest degree of professionalism.
