Product Description
Carman is an enigma in Christian music, often described as part evangelist, part Vegas Showman. His concerts were more like a rock and roll Billy Graham Crusade than a Christian music event. After all the singing, dancing, clapping and preaching, throngs of people would stream down to the counselling area to accept Christ-many times as many as 5,000 in an evening. Admission was usually free, a simple offering taken, similar to 30,000 churches on Sunday mornings. And he filled the largest stadiums the world over. With two Platinum® and seven Gold® albums and two Platinum® and three Gold® long-form videos, Carman is more than just an A-list artist, he is a cultural phenomenon.

There's no way you can classify a Carman song by its style but rather by the sheer blunt-force impact delivery in a person's life, with an unmistakable Gospel message. If there is any original trademark to Carman's repertoire, it is what we could only identify as a "story song". A combination of drama, rock, comedy, funk, satire, acting, singing, and preaching, all woven together by an unpredictable wit that can only be described as a full length feature film in seven minutes. A style not duplicated or even attempted by any other artist in any other musical genre. With compositions like The Champion, Lazarus Come Forth, Mission 3:16, A Witch's Invitation and This Blood, simply put, Carman is a true American original.
