Bill Dykes to Open for Mike Huckabee in Davis College Gala Event in Binghamton, NY
Legendary quartet man, Bill Dykes, continues to prove that his style of music is alive and well, from Southern Gospel's Deep South roots to upstate New York, as he joins Mike Huckabee in a Binghamton, NY Gala fundraiser at Davis College.
Dykes is no stranger to this type crowd, as he has been an in-demand performer for such events with Jerry Falwell, Pat Robinson, Rex Humbard, Billy Graham, Oral Robert, and Paul Conn. Among his charting successes, his song, "This is Love," reached #1 on Gospel charts and received three Dove Awards and a Gospel Music News Award.
Dykes is also a respected businessman with over 40 yrs invested in commercial banking, and his passion for the ministry has continued to help him reach out to many churches and ministries in distress. His recent position as Chief Marketing Officer for Sky Angel allowed him to design and implement Sky Angel’s sales and marketing initiatives. Previously, he served as Executive Vice President, Business Development at Church Mortgage Acceptance Co., LLC (CMAC) where he played a key role in providing over $2 billion in financing to churches nationwide in need of refinancing, renovation or expansion.
Dykes studied finance at the University of Cincinnati and vocal performance at the Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati. He attended seminary at Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and he holds a Doctor of Divinity Degree at Heritage Baptist University in Indianapolis.
The past few months for Dykes has proven to be a fertile ground for his many talents, gifts, and formal education, as Bill Traylor of Mansion Entertainment brought him on board as Executive Director of the newly launched Manor House Records. With Dykes expertise, passion, and drive for excellence in Gospel Music, Traylor felt it was an excellent match to meet the needs of recording artists wishing to take their music to a national level.
Dykes notes, "I am excited and honored to be part of the Gala fundraiser and to open
for Mike Huckabee. The event will support Davis College and this is a cause I truly believe in. I am very much looking forward to being in Binghamton and supporting this worthy cause."
