Audrey was the composer of many gospel songs, probably best known for her song, “His Name Is Wonderful”. Her other favorites included “I’ll Never Be Lonely”, “All He Wants Is You”, “He Belongs To Me’, “It Matters To Him About You”, To Be Used Of God”, and “When You Pray”.
At age ten, Audrey was greatly influenced by the evangelist, Aimee Semple McPherson, and the music that was performed at the Angelus Temple in Los Angeles, California. Audrey started writing songs and conducting choirs at an early age, and in the early 1950’s formed the world-famous Harmony Chorus, where she ministered with composer and evangelist, Phil Kerr.
In the 1960’s, Audrey Mieir began her musical concerts throughout the United States, where established and beginning gospel music artists would appear. These musicals were similar to the present-day Bill Gaither HomeComing Concerts. In the early years of Rex Humbard’s Cathedral of Tomorrow she was the music director. She was instrumental in the careers of many gospel songwriters and performers, particularly the Grammy Award-winning, Andrae’ Crouch.
Along with her musical talents, she was the driving force in the formation of two orphanages in Korea, bringing many racially-mixed Korean orphans to the United States for adoption.
In the mid-1950s’, Audrey Mieir became associated with Manna Music Publishing Company. Hal Spencer, President of Manna Music, Inc., says “Audrey Mieir was one of the most loved persons I have ever known. Besides her wonderful creative talents as songwriter and author, she had a loving compassion for God, her family, her ministry, and her many friends.”
Audrey died in November of 1996 in Los Angeles.
