1931 - 1992
Conley "London" Parris was the consummate performer. He possessed a large, booming bass voice and a dynamic personality that always made him a crowd favorite.
Given the name "London" by Lee Roy Abernathy, he took the world of Gospel Music by storm when he replaced Big Jim Waits as bass singer for the Rebels Quartet.
After singing with the Rebels for many years, London joined the Blackwood Brothers. In the early 1970s, he formed London Parris and the Apostles which won the Dove Award for most promising new gospel talent in 1971.
He was famous for his renditions of "At the Crossing" and "Little Boy Lost", but the classic "Everybody Ought to Know" will forever be remembered as his signature song.
