The Imperials

Mabee Center emuseumartistheaders0013the-imperials-w750


The Imperials consist today of Armond Morales, Paul Smith, Dave Will, and Rick Evans. Started in 1963 by Jake Hess, The Imperials got their start by mixing and matching various musicians from all over the world. One of the original members actually left the Oak Ridge Boys to be a part of “Jake Hess and The Imperials.”

Throughout 4 decades, The Imperials have encouraged people all over the world with their hit songs that include “How Great Thou Art,” “He Touched Me,” and “Praise the Lord.” Today, The Classic Imperials have come out of retirement and are touring again; bringing the good news of Christ to all who listen.
