Tony Fontane (1925–1974) was a popular American recording artist in the 1940s and 1950s who, following a near-fatal car accident in 1957, gave up his popular career to pursue one as a gospel singer. Thanks to his high, clear tenor voice and unrelenting sense of purpose, he became one of the world's most famous gospel singers, performing in concert halls and churches around the globe and recording many quality albums for RCA.

2Four days before his death, he was helped from his hospital bed to a church where he sang "Just As I Am".
3On the afternoon of September 3, 1957, Fontane finished a rehearsal for a television special at NBC in Burbank and was driving to his home when another motorist ran a red light and plowed into the driver's side of Fontane's sports car. It took rescue workers more than 2½ hours to extricate the singer from his vehicle. Rushed to the hospital, he remained in a coma on the brink of death for a month. His injuries included two broken legs, a crushed chest, massive head injuries, broken ribs, cracked vertebrae and severe internal injuries. A full-fledged atheist , he experienced a spiritual awakening upon his recovery and abandoned his pop career completely (he was sued by the William Morris Agency), turning instead to gospel and inspirational music for the rest of his life.
