Pat Boone, Bono and Others Thank Billy Graham

U2's Bono introducing the Thank You Billy Graham tribute song by Pat BooneThe long-forgotten Thank You Billy Graham tribute has resurfaced, thanks to Pat Boone’s final hurrah. The tribute originally surfaced in July 2001, but quickly faded away (I think lack of support from Billy Graham himself and possibly legal issues with the Association were to blame, but I don’t really remember). Nice timing that it resurfaces just before what could be Billy Graham’s final Crusade in New York.

The “Thank You Billy Graham” song, which features a spoken intro by Bono and singing from LeAnn Rimes, Kenny Rogers and others, will appear on Boone’s upcoming gospel album, Glory Train, which will be available August 9.

Until then, you can check out the video, complete with old-time footage of Billy Graham.

  1. I still love the Swirling Eddies’ simple little tribute song, “Billy Graham.” I quoted from it in a column a few years ago when Rev. Graham was in Nashville.

  2. The Swirling Eddies track is the first thing that came to my mind, too. And I think it’s a much better song.
