Rosa Nell Speer

Rosa Nell (Speer) Powell was the original pianist for The Speer Family. Dad Speer felt that the only way to get a pianist like he wanted was to raise one. Thus, Rosa Nell was elected. Rosie, as she is affectionately known by those who love her, is one of Southern Gospel’s finest pianists. She was married to Edwin Powell in 1948, and left the group. They had three children. She and her husband had a group for many years until his death in 1979. She, like all the Speer siblings is singing with The Speers again, and she even plays an occasional piano solo. She, along with Mary Tom, has worked in the office for The Speer Family and coordinates all activities for Ben Speer’s Stamps-Baxter Music School held each summer.
