Such sad news received today. Legendary Gospel Singer ED HILL passed away last night. I had the privilege of knowing ED for many years and standing on stage with him for a few years ED is the one who said “Elvis Has Left The Building” Thank you and good night.

One of the neatest things about my pro singing days was sitting back stage with Ed Hill listening to stories about his days with Elvis. Ed’s was the voice that announced, “Ladies and gentlemen, Elvis has left the building.” He passed away today. The old TCB crew is back together.
Ed Hill was the quintessential baritone. So underrated. The Black and White album he was on with the Singing Americans in the Mid-80’s with @nwfamsp001, Rick Strickland and Dwayne Burke was an incredible project. RIP Ed Hill.

It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ed Hill, a true Southern Gospel legend. Hill was admired as the “ultimate quartet man,” having successful stints w/ The Prophets, J.D. & The Stamps, Singing Americans & Statesmen. Please keep the Hill family in your prayers. pic.twitter.com/hgZTfDaLXl
