Brother Ray MaGee is continuing the good work of the Voice of Goodwill, the oldest and longest-running African American gospel music program in America. Voice of Goodwill has been on radio and television for more than 60 years.
“Our goal, our mission,” says MaGee, “is to promote goodwill and harmony between all races.”

Music is the universal language and the “Voice” is broadcasting important messages through inspirational gospel songs. The program is televised every Sunday at 5:30 a.m. on WLBT in Jackson, Miss., and at 6:30 a.m. on WHLT in Hattiesburg.
“When I see how the Lord protected and sustained us through the difficult times and 60 years later we are still here, I am convinced that He is pleased with what we are doing,” says MaGee, who made his television debut at age 6 and has been the primary host and executive producer of the ministry for more than 30 years. “The historical Voice of Goodwill must be sanctioned by our Lord.

“I am thankful and proud to be a part of its history. Yet, I am most proud by the fact that the Voice of Goodwill has played a major role in paving the way for every African American program on the airwaves today.”
The first broadcast took place in 1952 on radio station WBKH in Hattiesburg, Miss. It was an amazing feat, thought many in the black community, to have their voices heard over the airwaves, especially in the deep South.
When the Voice of Goodwill aired on television for the first time in 1956 (WDAM in Hattiesburg), the producers were confronted with hatred, intimidation and ridicule. The people who ran and supported the show persevered, however, and the Voice of Goodwill remains on the air.
MaGee is seeking financial support to keep the “Voice” running and has launched an Indiegogo campaign to generate funding. The page can be viewed at www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-voice-of-goodwill-assn-of-mississippi-inc
Donations on any amount are welcome. “Anyone who believes in racial harmony should try to support us,” MaGee says. “It doesn’t have to be a lot of money. In fact, I’d prefer to have a great many people contribute just a few dollars each, rather than a few large donations. That would mean more people believe in what we’re doing and support our mission.”
