The Band
Sammy Hall – Lead Singer, Acoustic Guitar
Sammy Hall was born August 10th in Sanford North Carolina, the son of James & Ione Hall. He has two sisters
Bernice and Voncile, wife Jacki, a daughter, Cori, two sons, Monte and Brannon and two grandchildren, Sabrina and
Brennon.

Sammy began his professional musical career in Fort Lauderdale Florida with the MorLoks. He moved on to the
Birdwatchers and became the lead singer in Florida’s top rock group. During this time Sammy opened for groups such
as Paul Revere and the Raiders, Grass Roots, Beach Boys and Dave Clark 5, just to name a few.

Sammy later formed the “Sammy Hall Trio” releasing a single album. A name change and the “Sammy Hall Singers”
were formed. During this time Sammy began Schooldaz and ministered to youth of all ages across the country,
speaking against substance abuse. It was during this period of Sammy’s life that many corporations had heard of the
works Sammy was doing with our youth. He was invited to perform and before Sammy knew it, he was motivating
business people across the country. With this, the group “Sammy Hall” was born. They released over 13 albums and
charted through out the years.

As his own children began to grow up, Horizon was formed and sons Monte and Brannon followed in their fathers
footsteps. Some years later Brannon decided to go out into the world and Monte and Sammy then formed Samson
and began working closely with Frank Mills, fostering a number one hit on the Christian Country Music charts
(CCMA), “Like Father, Like Son”

Sammy has been nominated for two dove awards and topped charts around the country through the years. His most
recent album “Rewriting the Story” has received rave reviews. It’s been said “Sammy Hall’s greatest song had not yet
been sung", yet this album is a testament that his “sound” is "a vocal kaleidoscope...unique to the human voice."
Improvisational and passionate, it is real, multi-generational, and positive”

Frank Mills – Bass Guitarist, Backup Vocalist
Frank was born December 14th in Essex NC to Mr. And Mrs. Murzie Mills. He is the fifth of six children with four sisters
and one brother. His background is Native American of the Saponi Tribe from Hollister NC.

At the age of nine, Frank met Sammy at a Church in Rocky Mount, NC. He was so impressed to see someone playing
an instrument other than the traditional organ or piano in church. From that night on a friendship began with Frank and
Sammy's families. At age ten, Sammy gave Frank his first real guitar and taught him his first song.

Frank has headlined in the gospel music industry with such groups as Quinton Mills, Gary McSpadden, The Hoppers,
plus doing numerous recording session with many great gospel artist.

Michael Lane – Keyboards, Backup Vocalist
Michael Lane was born July 16th in Kinston, NC. His wife Shannon and their son Ethan are the loves of his life.

Michael began singing in church with his mother at the age of 4, writing his first song at age 12. Not knowing how to
play any instruments and not getting the sound he was looking for from others, he taught himself to play the piano and
accomplished the gospel sound he was looking to hear.

Michael played with his first gospel group in 1995. Since then he has continued to hone his skills and has blessed the
Sammy Hall Ministry with his talent. Michael states: “I have a love for music that is greater than life itself”; and it shows
when he’s doing what he loves to do best- Singing praise to the Lord!
