Ed Hill of the Former Stamps Quartet Celebrated A Birthday This Week!
Ed Hill formerly of J.D. Sumner and The Stamps Quartet celebrated a birthday this week. And Backinmemphis.com spoke exclusively with the lovely Shirley Sumner Enoch about Ed. Here's what she told us, " Ed Hill , who sang with the Stamps in the 1970’s and was the stage announcer for Elvis during the later touring years became a long standing member of J. D.Sumner and the Stamps Quartet . He was a valued part of our organization and I had the pleasure of working with him until the beginning of 1999, shortly after daddy passed. In J.D.’s book “The Life and Times of J. D. Sumner” he remarks that Ed Hill was the finest baritone singer anyone could want, and a prince of a fellow.” I don’t think I could have said it better myself. I will add though, Ed Hill is a fine Christian gentleman and like a fine wine, “ He only gets better with age”. It is an honor to call him my friend. Happy birthday Ed and I am sending best wishes and love from the Sumner family." Shirley Sumne
