Jeremy Camp Speaks Louder
Jeremy Camp has earned 16 #1 Songs, and 3 ASCAP Songwriter of the year awards. Sonic Circus provided all of the equipment, Custom Console, Pro Tools integration and wiring design.
Camp’s thoughtful lyrics and booming voice have earned him legions of fans and accolades including 16 No. 1 songs, five Dove Awards, three ASCAP Songwriter of the Year wins and an American Music Award nomination. So why would someone so well known for his willingness to speak his mind and share his heart title his latest release Speaking Louder Than Before? After all, his message has always come through loud and clear. Christian music star Jeremy Camp has launched a ministry to raise awareness of local outreach efforts and to mobilize Christians into action within their own communities. The launch of Speaking Louder Ministries, which builds off of Camp’s recent album release Speaking Louder Than Before, was announced Friday, one week after the ministry’s first series of local outreaches hit Sioux Falls, S.D.; Minneapolis, Minn.; and Fargo, N.D. At each local level, the partners with Speaking Louder promoted Camp’s concert and a local organization to meet the needs of the community. Through the site, volunteers were recruited and greeted concertgoers collecting the goods that were requested for the organization. “The response was overwhelming,” Camp reported earlier this week after the recent outreach efforts. Starting in Sioux Falls, Speaking Louder raised awareness for the McCrossan Boys Ranch, which houses more than 60 young men, ranging from ages 10-17 years old, who have been displaced by family or lost a parent. “At the show we asked for people coming to bring winter clothes for them, and that they did! Was amazing response that night,” Camp reported. The next day, Friday, Camp went to Minneapolis to visit and spread compassion for children and their families at the Minneapolis Children’s Hospital. The community there was asked to bring Valentines of some form and, as Camp reported, the response was “overwhelming.” “Over 30,000 cards, candy, little teddy bears all came in – so much so that the churches ... dove in and helped give them out this week along with [radio station] KTIS to elementary schools, day cares, etc., in the Minneapolis area,” exclaimed Camp. “Praise God!” Lastly, Camp stopped by Fargo to raise awareness for a homeless shelter, drawing more than 1,000 pounds of donated food through his concert. “[It’s] just so amazing what God can do when His people unite and help encourage each other,” Camp reflected afterward. “We so often get so caught up in what we are doing, that we forget about the world around us.”
