Billy had a great impact on me as a musician. So glad that his talent and music live on. What a magnificent man and child of God.
February 21, 2007
I have never seen anyone look so truly happy in a performance as Billy did with "That's the Way God Planned It" at the Bangladesh Concert.
I imagine the Lord smiling broadly as Billy and George sit down and play together again.

July 22, 2006
Billy, "I'm really gonna miss you". Your music has always been an inspiration to me. Although you are no longer with us physically, your spirit lives on thru your music. You are now playing your music in the presence of the "Great Creator", and that is the highest honor. Rest in peace.
My sympathy and condolences goes out to your family.

I grew up listening to Billy's music, everyday after school I would rush home and turn the radio on hoping to hear everyday people and will it go round in cirlces. A Star from the music industry will be trully missed. May God continue to bless your love ones.
June 29, 2006
I can remember the big afro bouncing to the movement of the music proclaiming that we will go round in circles. Oh how I loved Billy Preston. CBS would allow him to be on TV, while no other people of color was allowed. My mother is on dialysis and I hope that when the Lord calls her home that she will go in peace as well.

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

June 28, 2006
As the world goes round in circles I hope you are that bird up in the sky watching over the rest of us
June 27, 2006
The first time I heard Billy Preston sing, I was only 19, and it was in the middle of summer. Billy's music always seemed so connected to sunshine, block parties, and a beautiful summer's day to me.

When I think of him now, I still think of his lightness,and his beautiful dancing spirit...there was no denying it!

Thank you Billy and all my thoughts and prayers to the Preston family.
June 27, 2006
Sad to see Billy pass away.

I met him in Vancouver at a 'meet and greet' before the "Rockin' Accross Canada Tour", a charity tour, which he did after Ringo's tour ended. What an entertainer, so nice to see him perform in an intimate seetting called the Commadore Ballroom. Thanks for the evening's entertainment, Billy.
Your music will live on!
June 27, 2006
I grew up listening to Billy's music and was just filled with admiration, adoration and infatuation for this man and his talent and his spirituality. Wish I could have seen him play in concert. Hope I can see you again one day.
June 26, 2006
June 22, 2006
Billy, You will truly be missied by me and all your true fan. I grew up lising to his great music over the year from Beattle era to present he set us great hit as "You are so beautiful" Back in love again"
I just can't get his great melodies out of my mind-he is a true legend. He is a contributor to Black Music as While as White Hits-a true pioneer to many fans.
God have a greater reward for Billy Preston in Heaven-where there is alway Gold-He truly deserve the reward.

Sincere Fan:

"A MAN PREACHES HIS FUNERAL WHILE HE LIVES" MY GRANDFATHER SAID ALL OF HIS ALMOST 90 YEARS.
I TOO AM 59 AND CAN REFLECT THIS TRUTH OF BILLY--
THE WONDERFUL MUSICAL LEGACY HE'S LEFT TO THE WORLD IS INDICATIVE OF A LIFE WELL FULFILLED, AND HIS CONTRIBUTIONS WILL LIVE ON IN INFAMITY.
THANK YOU MR. PRESTON FOR YOUR OBEDIENCE TO USE YOUR GOD GIVEN TALENT TO BLESS THE WORLD.
AND TO THE FAMILY: "EARTH HAS NO SORROW, THAT HEAVEN CANNOT HEAL."

June 21, 2006
I can't believe that Billy Preston's death was not widely publicized. As a child of the 70's I knew his sound but I had absolutely no idea how talented nor how well respected he was by his peers. Thank you Billy for sharing with us while you were here....
June 21, 2006
I had the opportunity to play piano with Mr. Preston once, and that I will never forget. My prayers are with Rodena and the rest of the family during this time of great transition.
June 21, 2006

TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS:

BILLY WAS A TALENTED & GIFTED MUSCIAN. GOD BLESSED HIM WITH THIS SPECIAL GIFT AND HE MADE US VERY HAPPY WHEN LISTENING TO HIS SONG. THE WAY HE PLAYED THAT PIANO WAS UNBELIEVEABLE. I PRAY THAT THIS GIFT TO SING AND PLAY LIVE ON IN OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS. THE ABILITY TO SING & PLAY IS AN INHERITANCE AND IT CAN TRAVEL TO MANY GENERATIONS. KEEP GOD'S GIFT ALIVE AND FLOWING IN THE FAMILY! IT IS VERY IMPORTANT! MAY GOD CONTINUE TO HOLD YOUR HANDS AS WE GRIEVE THE DEATH OF THIS GREAT MUSICIAN.

I PRAY THAT HE IS RESTING IN THE ARMS OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD:

May the peace and strength of God be with your family as they will be mentioned in our prayers.

Amazing how special songs continue with us for years and years. Personally I add them my own private titled 'National Anthem. You Are so beautiful a song which you co-wrote with Quincy Jones for Joe Crocker...that song will one day be sung at my wedding as I walk into the midst of my waiting soon to be husband. You must have known such a love to co-write such a beautiful song. I read your information thy wrote about you just now how they reflected the good and the bad which they won't often speak in a funeral. But if God had written that column it would have went like this, "Forgetting those things which are behind us etc. etc." In ending I leave my words, "I remember you Mr. Billy Preston."
June 19, 2006
I admired the talent of Billy Preston so much, I am a big Beatle fan and loved his work with them and George Harrison. I will never forget his inspirational performance of " That's the Way God Planned It' and his pure joy in the dance he did at the end. He had sunshine all over him. Loved him. Saw him with Ringo Starrs first All Starr band and he and Clarence Clemons were just incredible with their version of Jackson Browne's " You're a Friend of Mine", wow. I send my deepest sympathies to the Preston family and friends and want them to know I share their loss very much. He was the greatest, and I loved him.
June 19, 2006
As a teenager, you thought me what good music sounds like. Thanks for all the wonderful tunes. You will be missed.
June 19, 2006
Rickie, Trevor & Family,
You've had a truly hard year, now Billy is with his beloved Mother and singing songs of Zion along with all the other angels GOD wants with him. You are all in my prayers. Auntie Vicki (Shea's Sister)

June 17, 2006
I had always been a Billy Preston fan, but I never dreamed I would actually get to meet him. Unfortunately, I met him twice at Mayo Clinic, though it was a brief meeting and we exchanged few words. I will always remember his warm smile and will never forget him dedicating and singing "You Are So Beautiful" to the Mayo staff. Once again I was able to shake his hand.

To his family and friends, and especially Joyce Moore, I would like to extend my deepest sympathy.

Billy, thanks so much for giving us the music.
June 17, 2006
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy.I met Billy at the Beatlefest.His signatures will go to my grave.Truly he will be missed. God bless!

I pray for the peace of God to engulf the family of the late Billy Preston during this hour of breavement. Remember, weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. It gets easier as the days go by. God is faithful and an ever present help in the time of trouble. Wait on the Lord. Do not give up on Him. He will not fail. Only God can remove the heaviness you fell now. Thank you Jesus for being this family's comfort even right now.
June 16, 2006

June 16, 2006
Dear friends and family, Billy sang a song long ago in regards to Thats the way God wants me, and thats the way God made me to be, it really was a wonderful tune and still comes to mind now and then! My prayers will be with you and your loved ones. With much love, Thomas P. and Juanita Trowbridge

To the family of Billy Preston, our sympathy goes out to all of you, however we feel a loss also. He was so talented and of course "that"
smile will surely be missed. Please find comfort in the memories that you have. God Bless you all.
June 15, 2006
A co worker of mine was talking about the death of Mr.Billy Preston. {He did not remember the name of Mr.Preston.} As he described the musical history, I said, "I sure hope your not talking about Billy Preston",,, Well, looks like he was.. I am not an "Idol" fan, But of course, I watch the auditions. The second I heard Taylor Hicks sing, I was wishing Billy Preston was watching. Make no mistake, NEVER will there be another Billy Preston!! But thank God, someone with "SOUL" in thier soul got reconized! Thank you Billy Preston. You Truly are apprecieted and respected. You also will be greatly missed!! Sincerly, Mariann

To the Preston Family
I hope so many wonderful words help ease the pain. I can't be sure they will,but every time I have seen Mr. Preston he had a smile there are no words for his smile only an energy that you felt. The only thing I can say is he making heaven more beautiful with his smile and his soul.

To Billy's family and loved ones,

Those who have shown us love, have also brought us joy, and Billy gave us this and his love of music!

Our memories are blessed forever by all the beautiful lyrics that he composed over the years and by his resignating voice in the songs that he entertained us with for so many years, as well. We are saddened by his loss but happy in knowing that he's singing with many angels in Heaven and sitting alongside the Lord now.

God Bless your family and may the Lord's loving promises comfort you and give you strength as you walk through this time of sadness.
We will all miss him but are thankful for all that he gave us and his music and words will live on forever.
June 14, 2006
Thank you Billy for your Gift to the world, may you will live on.
June 14, 2006

Play on Billy
June 13, 2006
I love Billy. Always have. Saw him with Eric Clapton in Oklahoma City in 2,004. When I saw that Billy passed on, I got out my Concert for George DVD, where Billy sings "ISN'T IT A PITY", and then "MY SWEET LORD", and cried my eyes out. You could tell he believed in it. Now he is with God, and may he rest in peace, and always be remembered! There is one heck of a concert going on somewhere!
June 13, 2006
Please accept my deepest sympathies.
June 13, 2006

May "GOD" bless and be with your entire family. We love you, and truly you have always been an inspiration. God Bless......
June 13, 2006
Tears filled my eyes as I read the responses from so many people all over. It's as if people were aware of Bill's humility and kindness. He never viewed himself as an icon. He just said he was blessed. Bill was my friend and I'm finding it difficult to say goodbye to his smile, his warmth, his kindness and his talent, knowing there will never be another Billy Preston. This man would play How Great thou Art and everyone in the place realized the greatness of God. After his moving and spirit-filed performance he'd raise his hands and you could clearly see the water falling from them. Bill was only the vessel, God was the talent.
Thank-you my friend i will miss you.
June 13, 2006
". . .I'm a solider, in the war on poverty." Rest in peace musical soldier.

June 09, 2006
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Every Hammond B3 organ along with their keys and pedals are mourning the passing a of skillful and talented man named Billy Preston. His secular music was very hip, but it was his gospel music that was a big influence to me. If anyone could find an old Vee Jay recording of Billy on the organ, you will be blessed. The old UPN TV network show: Good News had Billy on the organ bench playing his heart out. Billy, get your rest. Keyboard Specialist, rest in His arms. Heaven’s celestial music is out of this world because Billy is in the number. March on.

To the Preston Family:

Billy, was 9 years older than my self. My family went to Victory Baptist Church in Los Angeles, where I enjoyed the music of the family long before they knew Billy existed. Because so many sundays seeing Billy playing the organ with Robert Spann, I decided to play piano. Also, I followed Billy to Dorsey High School, and graduated from there. Also played in a band around the corner from his rance in Topanga Canyon. I will also miss Billy. Hopefully, when it is all over I can play in the band with him in our Father's House.

God Bless you and Keep you
June 07, 2006

How I loved to see him play and perform. I'll always remember my brother introducing me to his music: Will It Go Round in Circles is a favorite. His smile, his style was one in a million.

Aw, man! Another musical great is gone. I was single-digit age for most of the 1970s. His songs "I Shot the Sheriff" and "Nothing from Nothing" were some of the first songs I memorized all of the lyrics. His music helped me define the whole era. Music will not be the same without him. I never laid eyes on him, God rest his soul, but I will definitely miss him.

Thank you for countless hours of pleasure that you have given me and my friends through your talents. I have admired you for years and you will always be one of my musical heroes. From Little Richard, to The Beatles, to the Stones, to your solo works, and the recent stuff with Clapton on his music and the Concert for George. Noone played the Hammond B-3 with more heart and soul. Today is a sad day, but we at least have you in our cars, and our homes everytime we hear you play.
