Angel of Mercy
Billy Evans was born in Roselle New Jersey. He vividly remembers stories told by his mother of how the brothers and sister's formed a singing group and performed at area churches. "being brought up in a penticostal church exposed me to an array of rhythms, percussive sounds, vocal improvisations and organ styles." At the age of ten he became interested in the piano and organ, and discovered that he had an innate ability to play. O course he became one of the church musicians and as the old saying goes, the rest is history. After high school he studied at Virginia Union University in Richmond, Va. It was there that he was introduced to classical and Jazz and was encouraged to persue music as a career. He played piano and sang with several bands for many years before organizing his own group. His band performs music for all occassions. He is also available for solo piano and still finds time to teach piano and voice.
