Obituary

James Hall was the eldest son of St. Elder James and St. Willie Mae Hall. He was the fourth of seven children. His name was placed on the United House of Prayer roll at birth under the leadership of the late Bishop Sweet Daddy Grace. He received the gift of the Holy Ghost in 1972.

James was educated in the Chatham County Public school system, attending Moses Jackson Elementary, Mercer Jr. High and Sol. C. Johnson High Schools. His athletic ability afforded him the opportunity to run track for Mercer Jr. High School where he excelled in several areas. He also played on the McCollough Soft Ball Team of Savannah, GA.

James began his career as a shoe repair craftsman at the tender age of 6 working in his father’s business, Hall’s Shoe Repair. He was very bright and a fast learner. Little did anyone know that he was a musical prodigy in hiding. At an early age he was introduced to music  by his father during their family gathering around their home piano to sing and give praises to God.

He began to play piano by ear just mimicking his father. Then he began to pick up other instruments at the House of Prayer and play at will. Under the leadership of Bro. David King, James got an opportunity to play every position on the Jr. Band of Savannah Mother House. He fell in love with
the baritone and the sousaphone. His percussion skills give rise to his position as the tri-tom drum player in the Savannah Marching Band’s first debut of a Memorial Day Parade in Washington D.C.  He relocated to Charlotte N.C. where he played with the original McCollough Tigers Shout Band.

Upon relocating to Washington D.C. He changed his membership to Charlotte J. Mission United House of Prayer and played with the McCollough Soul Stirrers Shout Band under the Leadership of the late Bro. Ruben Richardson. He relocated to New York City in 1987 where he resided until his end.

James was preceded in death by his brother, Antony Hall, his daughter Lashica Hall, his brother-in-law Apostle Melvin Hough and his sister Vanessa Hall.

On Friday, December 24, 2021, Jmaes entered eternal rest at Muriel Harold Block Residency.

He leaves to cherish his memories his parents, Elder James and St. Willie Mae Hall of Savannah GA, 3 sisters, Linda Hough of Cincinnati OH, Debora Gaskins of Washington D.C. and Beverly Espinoza (Byron) of Savannah GA, 1 brother Elder Julius Hall of Savannah GA, 1 sister-in law Felecia Chapman of Savannah GA 1 aunt, Angela Brown of Savannah GA, 1 step-daughter Lashonda Kirkland of Charlotte NC, 4 grandchildren, Latisha, Destiny, Emmanuel and Miracle all of Charlotte, NC, 3 nieces, 4 nephews and a host of relatives and friends.
