Gloria Elliott was born the youngest of three children to parents who were home missionaries, who pioneered and planted churches throughout the state of Virginia. She made her singing debut at the age of 4, standing on the altar of her dad’s church in Salem, Virginia. Thus began the music ministry that would touch thousands from coast to coast.
As a young girl, Gloria dreamed of singing in the Revivaltime Choir, directed by Cyril McLellan and featured on the Assemblies of God international radio program by the same name. At the time, C.M. Ward was the host speaker for Revivaltime. In 1967, Gloria was granted the desire of her heart when asked to be the soloist for the acclaimed broadcast. After 4 years in this position, she was offered the opportunity to record with John T. Benson on the Impact label, in Nashville, Tennessee.
In 1970, Gloria recorded an album with Bob MacKenzie and Ron Huff in London, England. Since that time she has recorded albums for many highly regarded music producers and arrangers, among them: Svante Widen from Sweden; Rick Powell and Bob Krogstad on the Zondervan label in Nashville, Tennessee, and London, England; and, most recently, for Gary S. Paxton on the GarPax label in Branson, Missouri.
One of the highlights in her career was her work with Ralph Carmichael at the Red Rocks Theater in Denver, Colorado, as the soloist for the Assemblies of God General Council Sunday Evening Celebration.
