Ray Hildebrand - Biography
Born December 21, 1940, in Joshua, Texas, Hildebrand met his singing partner Jill Jackson (Paula) while attending Howard Payne College (now called Howard Payne University) in Brownwood the Lone Star State.
Hildebrand first met his future singing partner Jill Jackson, while both were attending Howard Payne University in Brownwood, Texas. Once paired up, the duo first called themselves Ray and Jill and eventually had a string of hits, including “Something Old, Something New,” “First Quarrel,” “First Day Back at School,” and “Young Lovers,” along with their biggest hit “Hey Paula,” released in 1963.
A devout Christian, Hildebrand’s post- Paul & Paula solo recordings were largely a reflection of his faith. “Say I Do” is said to be a trailblazing record of the contemporary Christian genre. Later, he would team up with Paul Land, performing Christian music under the name of Land & Hildebrand.
