His album Citizen of Heaven (Live) was up for 2022 GRAMMY® Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album and generated the RIAA gold-certificated single, “Famous For (I Believe)”.
Having toured with the iconic likes of Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey, this consummate performer averages nearly 90 shows a year across North America.
