Aug 6, 2019 0 comments

Many of Southern Gospel and country gospel's most prominent names count Sue Dodge as one of their oldest friends after 50 years in music.

Here are the Top 10 video tributes to Sue Dodge as she celebrated the massive milestone.

Sue Dodge, born Sue Chenault, was a little girl with a big voice when she sang her first televised solo at the tender age of five years old.

By 16,  she was performing every day on television on top Arkansas TV Station KATV with The Miller Trio. She was later crowned "Miss Congeniality" in the Miss Arkansas pageant.

Everyone who knows Sue Dodge understands that her warm personality and friendly smile turns into ferocious energy when she takes the stage to sing her beloved Southern Gospel music.

The famed group, The Downings, asked to see Sue sing and brought her to Nashville in 1969 where they immediately gave her a job at age 19. Only 18 months later, Sue Dodge found herself invited to sing with The Speer Family for which she was given four Dove Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year.

Later, she was even inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame due to her Southern Gospel mastery while performing with The Speer Family.

It was a good thing Sue joined The Speer Family because she met her partner in life, Amos Dodge, about four years into her time with the famed Southern Gospel group. They have now been married for 45 years.

In 1979, Sue and Amos founded a new church in a Washington, DC suburb which is still thriving today under the leadership of the couple's daughter Tara and her husband Travis, who is the grandson of Howard and Vestal Goodman.

Recently, Sue celebrated 50 years in the ministry at her home church in Benton, Arkansas. She was so excited to perform before a packed house that was filled with loving memories, laughter, and, yes, great Southern Gospel music.

“I am so humbled and honored at how God has allowed me to serve Him over the years, and I couldn’t be more thankful that He still allows me to sing," Dodge said. "This is only the beginning, and I hope to see you all soon.”

Here are the top 10 video tributes to the great Sue Dodge:
