We all have to start somewhere and for most of us that usually includes “humble beginnings.” The great CCM artists that shared the “We Will Stand” stage for our event weren’t always household names either.

For example, Steven Curtis Chapman started his Nashville career by playing banjo in the Opryland Theme Park (and I hear he was a clogger as well!). Michael W. Smith worked for a landscaper, and Cindy Morgan sold clothing at the Green Hills Mall here in Nashville.

This video clip captures Russ Taff’s story of his “humble beginnings” AFTER he was part of The Imperials, one of the most successful CCM groups of all time.

I had the privilege of telling much more of Russ’ story in the “We Will Stand” book, including my own story about the night I surrendered my life to Christ at an Imperials concert while Russ was in the group.

Needless to say, I am very grateful for ministry of The Imperials. Maybe you have a story to tell as well. Don’t hold back—someone needs to hear how God has changed your life.
