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.
I will admit I usually put Steven Curtis Chapman into the "cheesy Christian singer who I would never listen too" category, but this DVD is incredible. The theme of the DVD/Tour centers around the five missionaries that died in the 50s trying to bring the gospel to the Auca Indians in Ecuador. There is a 20 minute segment in the middle of the DVD that tells their story and watching it changed my life in the way I looked at missions and even my own walk with God. These five men had everything: their families, their careers, their youth, and they left it all to proclaim the gospel to a savage Indian tribe. I showed this clip to my youth group and they were glued... you could here a pin drop (and thats saying something for teens!). This is a great purchase!
DVD- Steven Curtis Chapman Live May 12, 2005
The bonus features, containing "The Gates of Splendor", footage of and about the great missionary "Project Auca" and live concert presentations by Stephen Saint and Mincaye, an ex-Auca, now Waodani Ecuadorian tribesman ARE WORTH MORE THAN THE PRICE OF THE ALBUM. A MUST-SEE! I have shown this DVD to friends and coworkers (not all christian either, btw), and each and every person who viewed this was literally stunned; the story is an incredibly powerful message of love, faithfulness and forgiveness. I am purchasing several to give away to family, friends and neighbors.
best part: the ministry element May 24, 2004
the best part of this video is it's ministry element, that is, how steven uses multimedia and moving images to complement his concert. You will see lots of multimedia, footages, MTV as the songs move along for the purposes of telling you a great story. There are two big stories in the concert DVD. One is shaohannah, his adopted daughter from China, and the other is on the 5 missionaries who were killed by the Auca Indians back in the 1950s. These two stories unfold, as he sings various songs..and that is what connects you deeply with the grace of God.
The weakest part of this video is the production quality of the concert itself. It has that edgy, rough look with the stage lights a way bit too dim for a concert. In short, it doesnt have the 'Great Adventure' studio-like quality of his earlier concert.
Nevertheless, it's a 4 stars to me because a christian concert should be enjoyed not only for its production quality, but also for its ministry element. It should after all, touch you in a special and personal way such that you would want to respond to God positively. That to me, is the strength of the video.
It hurt to watch Jan 27, 2004
This tour coincides with his vocal scare and this concert is an indication of it. He holds back greatly on his performance yet his voice is still pristine. Think of it as seeing SCC at 1/4 power. Both vocally and musically the performance suffers. I could not wait for the concert to end. I am a big fan that has seen him many times; this time I was disappointed. Rent it first then decide if you really want it. It is still SCC and he is still a great artist.
great performance with a powerful message Jan 11, 2004
Steven Curtis Chapman is an engaging, attractive performer with a powerful message of joy, love, and devotion. This concert film is taken from two live shows in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, on October 17 and 19, 2002, and it is interspersed with occasional interview clips. Steven writes all his material, and the song list is: "See the Glory" "All About Love" "Speechless" "When Love Takes You In", which is my favorite song on the program, and has a lovely, touching story behind it. It is about adoption, and includes a beautiful video that is sure to move all but the hard-hearted to tears.
The middle segment is one that has been inspired by the book "Through the Gates of Splendor", about five men and their families who went to Ecuador in 1955 as missionaries, resulting in the men being murdered by the Auca tribe. It includes an astonishing photographic and film assemblage dating back to that time, and it ends with the son of one of the missionaries, along with one of the men who killed his father, and the tale they tell is fascinating and inspiring. The songs that go with this portion of the show are: "God of God" "For the Sake of the Call" "Children of the Burning Heart" "No Greater Love" "God Follower" "My Redeemer".
The concert ends with three exuberant numbers: "The Great Adventure" "Live Out Loud" "Dive" Though this contemporary rock music style is not what I normally listen to on a CD, I love this concert footage. It is overflowing with God's love, and the presentation is excellent. Steve's back-up musicians are very good, and the camera work and lighting well done. Total running time is 78 minutes.
