Kevin Staley knew at a young age he was destined to serve God through his music.
“I feel that was just my calling,” said Staley, music minister at Gospel Water Branch Baptist Church in Evans. “I was pretty much raised in the church.”
At age 6, the Wagener native had already learned to play the piano.
When he became a teen, Staley played a number of percussion instruments as a student at Wagener-Salley High School and on the marching band at Benedict College.
