Carman

Carmelo Domenic Licciardello (born January 19, 1956) known by his stage name, Carman, is a contemporary Christian music artist and evangelist. Carman was born in Trenton, New Jersey. As a child he played drums in his mother's band. Then as a teen he formed his own group. Around the age of 20, he moved to California.

While attending an Andraé Crouch concert, Carman became a born again Christian, and embraced evangelicalism. In 1980, he made a custom album titled God's Not Finished with Me. The following year, he was invited by Bill Gaither to tour with The Bill Gaither Trio. After relocating to Tulsa, Oklahoma, he released a moderately successful eponymous debut album (later issued as Some-o-Dat) in 1982—which contained mostly novelty songs. Then with the release of the live album Sunday's On The Way in 1983, began a string of CCM chart successes beginning with the title song. As he continued his musical career, Carman established the non-profit organization Carman Ministries. With the 1985 release of The Champion came his first number one song, of the same name. Another live album—Radically Saved—came in 1988. Then 1989 brought Carman his first number one album—Revival in the Land.

Between 1987 and 1989, he was named Charisma magazine's readers' choice for favorite male vocalist. In 1990 and 1992, Billboard Magazine recognized Carman's influence in Christian music by naming him the Contemporary Christian Artist of the Year and in 1995 he recorded his first album in Spanish-Lo Mejor-which includes some of the already recorded songs like "Who's in the House" and "The River." In 2000 the album Heart of a Champion came out with 30 of his best songs including new songs. In 2007 he updated his catalog with Instrument Of Praise, which saw him exploring the new musical styles of the time.

He has received 15 gold and platinum albums and videos and has sold over 10 million records. He holds the world record for the largest solo Christian Concerts in history with 80,000 attendees for a Charlotte, North Carolina show, and 71,132 indoors at Texas Stadium, as well as the largest ticketed CCM solo concert with 50,000 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Beyond music, he participates in various television productions and interview duties as a host for both the Trinity Broadcasting Network in general and flagship program Praise the Lord. In 2001, Carman starred in the film Carman: The Champion.

In November 2011, Carman was involved in an auto accident. He was in the passenger seat when the driver made a left into the church parking lot in front of a crowd of fans waiting to get into the concert. A truck from oncoming traffic struck Carman's side at 50 mph. Carman was able to walk into the church attempting to continue with the scheduled concert, but collapsed soon after. He was taken to a hospital just outside of Houston, Texas, where he was examined and x-rayed. No broken bones or spinal injuries were found. However there were internal injuries that required surgery.

With 16 RIAA Certified Platinum and Gold albums and videos, over 10 million albums sold and attendance records for the largest solo Christian concerts in history, Carman plans to record an album and video of all new music for the first time in over 10-years. Remarkably, it was a death sentence by doctors that paradoxically revived this entertainer’s creative spirit through his fans.

In March of this year, singer, songwriter and television/film actor/writer Carman was diagnosed with terminal, multiple myeloma cancer, a cancer of the blood that affects the body’s bone marrow, and was given a three to five year life expectancy by doctors. Stunned and initially devastated by the news, Carman’s spirit was soon lifted up by the overwhelming love and support received by tens of thousands of fans after posting the news on his Facebook page. Turning the death sentence into a renewed vision and hope for the future, Carman is not only determined to fight the cancer, but is also well underway to his first independent, fan-funded new album and music video through Kickstarter, the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects.

Launched April 19, Carman’s Kickstarter campaign has already become the most successful Christian music campaign ever for Kickstarter. Raising more than $173,000 to date, the campaign donations are on target to reach Carman’s $200,000 goal by his June 18 deadline. Fans are able to donate as little as $1 up to several thousand dollars with commensurate gifts of appreciation from Carman once the campaign is fully funded and the album and music video are recorded and released. See http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/886460906/new-carman-album-and-music-video for all the details.

“I'm so excited about this incredible opportunity we all have through Kickstarter to make something happen as a team and a family,” says Carman to his fans. “Cancer pronounced a death sentence, but you have been life to me, rallying me back into the fight and praying me back to my feet. As one fan said on my Facebook page, ‘Look at what Jesus did in three years.’ So as for you and me, with this new project and us working together, the next three years are going to be a blast.”

In addition to the new music, Carman is determined to not let cancer detract from doing what he does best, sharing the hope of the gospel to live audiences. Touring from coast-to-coast, Carman shares his hit songs alongside his most recent offering, “The Flag,” a compelling anthem that weaves the Pledge of Allegiance into a melodic and inspirational message of pride in America. “The Flag” concept video can be seen now at http://youtu.be/4QDxqlP3Fn0, and Carman’s full schedule can be seen at http://www.carmanlive.com/.

CCM legend Carman has just announced that he has been diagnosed with Myeloma Cancer. Please keep the singer in your prayers. Below is Carman's personal letter to his fans via Facebook about the diagnosis...

I have delayed writing this but those of you I call friends and supporters, who have prayed for me and this ministry need to know about this new battle that lies ahead. One week ago I was diagnosed with Myeloma Cancer. It is incurable and I've been given a 3-4 year window of time. Tomorrow I go in for my first bone biopsy and the process will start. I used to go to movies in the afternoon, now I go see doctors. I write these things for a few reasons. First, I want to put an end to all the rumors. Second, I ask for your prayers. And 3rd, I want you all to know that I will continue to minister and win souls until I can't do it any longer. My life has always been about ministry. I have a call of God to touch lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ and that's what I will do until the Lord calls me home. Please, do not allow this facebook site to be an ongoing blog for cancer treatment remedy's. That would be depressing to everyone. If you have any insight you can message me personally. But I want to encourage you, if you can, to please come see me the next time I'm in your area. Bring someone who doesn't know the Lord or who needs to be healed. I will always pray for the sick and I'm also going to step up the intensity of my message at these events. I will not leave this world quietly and I want the devil to know that he put cancer on absolutely the wrong Italian. I have a few good years and before it's too late I want to see your faces, shake your hands and hug your necks. But mostly I want to see one of you get healed of what threatens your future and I really want to see someone you love come to Christ. Now lets get back to business, we have to work while its day for soon the night comes.

I love you all -C

NASHVILLE, Tenn.— Anthems of a Champion, the first national release in six years from iconic Platinum-selling recording artist Carman, is set to bow January 22 from Sparrow Records. Highlighted by new recordings of his hits “The Champion,” “Lazarus Come Forth,” “Radical Suite (That’s My King/Radically Saved)” and “I Feel Jesus,” the compilation also includes such Carman classics as “Who’s In The House,” “A Witch’s Invitation,” “Mission 3:16” and “Addicted to Jesus,” among other fan favorites.

“When I see the songs on this album, to me, it represents all the lives that were changed when they were released,” Carman says. “The souls that were saved in the concerts, the children that quoted the lyrics as prayers to chase away their fears, the broken lives that were turned around, and the thousands committed to full-time ministry after listening to a CD over and over again. Thirty years ago my life was changed by one gospel song and it’s been an honor to pass that same blessing on to others.”

In addition, Anthems of a Champion features “The Flag,” a new selection penned by Carman, which weaves The Pledge Of Allegiance into a melodic and inspirational message of pride in America. “It's been several years since I put my hands to write a new song,” Carman continues. “But when I did it came out of a love for America; it’s time we honored ‘The Flag.’”

With two Platinum and seven Gold-selling albums to his credit, as well as two Platinum and three Gold-selling long form videos, Carman has been one of Christian music’s most successful artists for nearly three decades. Described as part evangelist, part Vegas showman, his crusade-like music events have packed arenas around the world while his signature “story songs”—combining elements of drama, rock, comedy, acting, singing and preaching—are uniquely unparalleled in any genre.

Christian Music Archive Radio is a daily radio program featuring many of the artists found on the Archive.
Here is the show where Carman was featured.
