His charismatic approach, charm and genuine passion for his Christian teachings made him a very Motivational Speaker. He would preach the Gospel to thousands of devoted followers and arrange for a massive choir to sing Christian songs to the transfixed and naturally hypnotised audience. All around the World millions of people rallied to his cause, from America to South Africa and all around England, Graham became a firm favourite as a Motivation speaker UK.

Many famous people attended his rallies and were friends of Billy Graham including Sir Cliff Richards and Martin Luther King Jr. They even attended several rallies together and spoke side by side about the importance of racial integration and how all men and women were equal no matter what colour or creed or gender. Unfortunately, from 1992 he suffered from hydrocephalus and his health deteriorated but he still continued to speak to his faithful followers until his last appearance at the age of 91.  He finally passed away from natural causes at his home in Montreat, North Carolina at the grand old age of 99.
