Roger Wiles


Rev. Roger Wiles joined The Imperials at age 20 and  moved from San Diego, Calf., to Nashville, Tenn., in the 1960s. When the group was not on the road, they worked as union back-up singers in recording studios and concerts for top country acts. “Around 1969, Col. Parker made a decision to have Elvis make personal appearances again,” Wiles said of Elvis’ famous manager. “He had not did a concert since 1959. He was making movies, and while with "Elvis preformed for some of The Beatles, Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Tom Jones.

Roger spent his whole life wanting to be a Gospel Singer and after a few years of being a back-up singer, with the Imperials, for the  American Icon, Wiles was convinced that God wanted him to use his gift(s) a different way. Wiles married and left the group, earned his law degree and became a minister.
