Raymond Myles Raymond Myles
Comparable to Al Green, Raymond Anthony Myles was an R&B-influenced gospel singer who came out of the rich New Orleans music scene. Myles probably would have done well as a secular R&B artist if he had chosen to go that route, but, instead, he stuck to Christian music. The singer was only 12 when, in 1969, he recorded his single, "Prayer From a 12-Year-Old Boy," which called for an end to the Vietnam War and came at a time when the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy were fresh in people's minds.
