Voices only: Remembering Botham Shem Jean


Each week, as part of our Voices only series we highlight the best a cappella videos that come across our eyes — and ears — on the web.

This week we want to pause to remember a man who was a part of our fellowship, Botham Shem Jean.

Jean was killed late Thursday, according to Dallas police, by an officer who walked into his apartment mistaking it for her own.

Jean was a graduate of Harding University and was known for him beautiful voice. So, we felt it was only fitting to share this video of Jean leading singing at Harding’s chapel service during his time as a student.

And here’s another video of Jean leading singing at the Dallas West Church of Christ.

Botham leading worship at the Dallas West Church of Christ. So talented. Such a wonderful person gone way too soon. He blessed so many with his time here. As the song says, “Home at last.”

And here’s one more of Jean singing with Harding’s Good News Singers in 2014. He has a solo that begins right around the 2:00 mark.

The investigation into Jean’s death has been turned over to the Texas Rangers. We will continue to bring you updates HERE.

If you have a video you would like us to feature as part of our Voices only series please leave us a link in the comments.
