A Look Back: The Hear and Now Singers

The Hear and Now Singers were a musical group organized on Samford's campus by Bob Burroughs, the Composer-In-Residence from 1971 until 1980. 

Consisting of students from all around campus, the Hear and Now Singers performed contemporary and Christian music throughout the South Eastern states.

The group began in 1972 and continued to perform and tour throughout the 70's. They had twenty members, including singers and instrumentalists. 

In 1977, they recorded an album of 10 gospel songs entitled “Simple Gifts”.
