With humble humor, Shea says, "When they ask me to sing these days, they're just being kind, you know?"
But I think his wife has it right — with allowance for forgivable pride in her husband:
"When everybody else sings, it's a personality singing," Karlene Shea said. "When he sings, something else comes over you — the words, the message, and you forget he's standing there."Indeed. There aren't many Christian singing artists who I care to hear all that much... but I'll gladly listen to Shea anytime. He sings it like he means it, with heart and without pyrotechnics, and I enjoy that.
Here's a recent performance and talk with Bev, though I've not yet found the date.
