We often sing along with songs we hear on the radio (or our favorite digital platform) without much thought of the road down which they were written.
Other times, though, we hear a song and just know there's a story tucked away in the lyrics.
The latter would likely be the case with contemporary Christian singer-songwriter Jeremy Camp's "I Still Believe."
A popular single from his first major-label full-length album in 2003, Camp wrote the song after the death of his first wife, Melissa.
The song helped propel Jeremy Camp's career, whose name is now well-known to Christian music fans.
At the very beginning of the pandemic, a full-length movie based on the story behind the song was due to release on March 13, 2020, only to find there were few to no theaters open to the public — seemingly derailing the plans for the impact of "I Still Believe the Movie."
Undeterred, the film was released immediately on digital and streaming platforms to great acclaim.
And nearly two decades into his musical career, fans were quickly able to connect with the man behind the artistry and the story of God's faithfulness to the singer.
Camp's career highlights now include over 30 number one Christian radio hits, American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers songwriter awards, and back-to-back Gospel Music Association Dove Awards for Best Male Vocalist.
Fayetteville will get all of that and much more when the "I Still Believe Tour" lands in the Crown Theatre on Saturday, March 19th.
Appropriately named, the "I Still Believe Tour" features Riley Clemmons, a young Christian songstress whose infectious pop singles have earned her the respect, admiration and tens of millions of plays on radio and digital platforms since her 2018 debut.
Canada-native Jordan St. Cyr rounds out the lineup for the evening, which promises to be one of the best Christian music shows of the year.
Longtime fans of Jeremy Camp know they can count on an evening that is both high energy and reflective.
Jeremy has a solid foundation as an artist and is an adept storyteller whose songs quickly point to God and the truth of his strength.
With a twenty-year string of hits songs under his hat, the evening will be filled with exciting surprises for some and sing-along memories for others.
Without a doubt, everyone will leave knowing they have been both encouraged and entertained.
Doors open at 6 p.m., and the concert begins at 7 p.m. at Fayetteville's Crown Theatre on Saturday, March 19th. To purchase tickets, visit crowncomplexnc.com.
