More About Steven Curtis Chapman
Steven Curtis Chapman (born November 21, 1962) is an American Christian music singer-songwriter, record producer, actor, author, and social activist.
After starting his career in the late 1980s as a singer-songwriter of contemporary Christian music, Chapman has since been recognized as one of the most prolific singers in the genre, releasing over 20 albums. Chapman has also won five Grammy awards and 56 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, more than any other artist in history. His seven "Artist of the Year" Dove Awards, his latest in 2009, are also an industry record. As of 2007, Chapman has sold more than 10 million albums and has eight RIAA-certified Gold or Platinum albums.
Chapman is also a vocal advocate for adoption, along with his wife Mary Beth. Together, they have started a charity organization called Show Hope (formerly called Shaohannah's Hope), that mobilizes individuals and communities to care for orphans through its international orphan care work as well as adoption aid grants to help put more orphans from overseas and the U.S. in loving, forever families. In 2009, Show Hope finished building Maria's Big House of Hope, a medical care center in China that provides holistic care to orphans with special needs. He is also a contributor to Compassionart, a charity founded by Martin Smith of British Christian band Delirious?.
Chapman was recognized in the Fall 2010 issue of Wood & Steel discussing the new Taylor 714 Signature Series guitar in honor of his youngest daughter Maria Sue. The guitar features the flower from Maria's picture and the word "SEE" on the 12th fret in Maria's handwriting. In 2003, Chapman starred in the Christian film Christmas Child.
Reviews - What do customers think about Abbey Road Sessions/The Walk?
A different take on some of his greatest hits May 16, 2005
I was always a little curious about those "Abbey Road Sessions" that produced the live versions of "Lord of the Dance" and "The Walk" that appeared on the Greatest collection album back in 1997. This latest CD includes both of those tracks as well as recordings of "More to This Life", "For the Sake of the Call" and "Treasure of You". It's all good stuff, with a completely different kind of energy than the original versions of these songs. I especially like this version of "Treasure of You"; you can just hear how much fun they were having making the record.
I think my only complaint, and it's a mild one, is that the combination is a little pricey considering that there are only five tracks on the CD (and two of those were previously released). The package does include a DVD that features an hour-long documentary and some other interesting things, but I would love to have heard some more of the live music tracks (if there were any others from that session).
