A little man with a big voice visited Storm Lake, Iowa Sunday night.

Although affectionately nicknamed 'Little Lowell', there's nothing small about his voice.

At 77-years-old, Lowell Mason stands less than four feet tall.

And although for a few years, he held the title as the world's oldest little person, he's best known for his big voice as a gospel singer.

At 46-inches tall, Lowell Mason may not tower over the masses. But his voice sure does carry.

Mason's been performing his gospel music most of his life.
 
"I started singing on the radio when I was 9-years-old. Now I am 77-years-old. So let me think, how many years has that been? A long time," said Lowell Mason, known as the World's Smallest Gospel
Singer.

He's affectionately known as 'Little Lowell'.  And for 2 years, Mason was actually in the Guinness Book of World Records as the World's Oldest Living Person.

So the height jokes don't really get to him.
 
"Yeah, that doesn't bother me in the least. I've known I was little all my life. That wasn't anything new to me."

Instead, he focuses on his music career singing gospel music.  Mason's doing 15 to 20 performances a month all over the country.  He said he's enjoying performing so much he isn't thinking at all about
retiring.
 
"I told my family, as long as I can get up in front of a microphone and hear the music I'm supposed to be singing to, I plan to keep on doing it," Mason said.

And no matter where he's singing, Little Lowell's big voice catches a crowd.
