Brother James Edward Hunt was one of the founding Trustees of the Mount Nebo Pentecostal Church at its current location on Burke Avenue in Alexandria, Virginia. He remained a member for over forty years until his homegoing.

As a young boy, he discovered he had a gift from God as a dynamic gospel singer. He used this gift for many years singing in different churches until he and some friends formed their first successful gospel quartet called the Silver Stars.

In 1960 he and a new group of friends formed the Mighty Spiritual Lights. He became one of the lead singers and manager of the group which made several recordings and received accolades and praise from all over the country. The Mighty Spiritual Lights have shared the spotlight with many of the gospel greats of the world. With his ability to bring thousands of people to Christ through song he established the original “Gospel Hour” at Mount Nebo which became the showplace for many of the major Gospel singing groups in the area. The Gospel Hour is still in existence today.
