American songsmith Mitch McVicker tells of his past struggles

AMERICAN singer/songwriter Mitch McVicker will have his new album 'Love Will Rise' released in the US in September on the newly formed Surrogate Records. Almost 10 years ago, McVicker nearly lost his life in the same tragic accident that claimed his best friend, Rich Mullins. Battered and broken, McVicker's road to recovery was arduous and laced with obstacles both great and small. Victories were often counter-balanced by setbacks, yet it was through this season of wrestling with God that he earned the right to limp. "At times I've alternately been criticised and complemented for being something of a Lone Ranger," McVicker said. "That is still a struggle for me. But during this season of my life I've been forced to accept the fact that we all need each other. We are built for community. When Jacob wrestled with the angel, he walked away with a limp. That makes perfect sense to me now. We can't walk upright without leaning on someone else." CR
