A North Carolina native who has preached the message of Christ to millions across the globe, celebrated his 95th birthday yesterday. Hundreds of Rev. Billy Graham's closest friends and family joined him for a gala at Asheville's historic Grove Park Inn. Among those invited, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory, and singers Michael W Smith and Ricky Skaggs.

The highlight of the evening was a 30-minute emotional video detailing Billy Graham's life's work and this year's message "My Hope America".
After preaching for nearly a century, Billy Graham's message remains the same. Judging from the turnout for his 95th birthday, that message lives on.

Video and interviews from the event will be available shortly on myfoxcarolinas.com.
