Steven Curtis Chapman
Over the past 20 years, the worship music movement has become the forefront of Christian music as an industry. Nearly every artist has left his or her mark on it over the years, contributing to a rich tapestry of musical expression all aimed at directly praising God—either as individuals or as a corporate body.
But it’s a genre Steven Curtis Chapman, who has earned more awards than any single recording artist in Christian music history, has never contributed to—until now. Worship and Believe marks the first worship album by the 58-time Dove Award-winning artist, who has sold nearly eleven million albums in his three decade-long career of creating music.
Before he was the household name in Christian music, Steven grew up in a tight-knit family in Kentucky playing the guitar and singing. Given his early love of music, it really wasn’t a surprise when he traded in his pre-med major in Kentucky for a shot at pursuing music in Nashville.
