Trip Down Memory Lane: Christian Music Part 3

DC Talk.

Growing up, DC Talk was one of the coolest things ever.

Recently listened to some of their music again. Forgot how good it is!! And remembered how much I loved it! I hope teens today will take the time to listen… and that Christian parents will introduce it to their children.

Loved their CD “Free At Last” where I became a big fan.

Even joined their fan club and received their DC Talk t-shirt and dog tag necklace. (Still have the dog tag!)

Love their boldness for Jesus and message to live the Christian life and not worry what the world thinks about you.

This song is from that album. Take a listen:

(The video’s also worth watching to see their 90’s clothes and dance moves!)

Here’s another one of their songs from “Free At Last”:

Great anticipation came for the release of their following album: “Jesus Freak.” Couldn’t wait! Was so excited to hear the first single release on the radio. It was a big deal!

Here’s the official music video for the title song:

My sister Ashleigh and I used to skate to their music on Christian skate night at the roller rink. I often made requests for their songs.

This was some of the music that influenced my life.

The world needs true Christian artists who are bold for Christ, unashamed and singing for the right reasons.

Wonder how many people get saved at Christian concerts. My parents took me to many Christian concerts growing up and there were many altar calls, where people were invited to ask Jesus into their hearts.

My family and I got to see them in concert at Atlanta Fest – they were the headliner band. When the concert started, they appeared standing on a high platform that was slowly being lowered to the stage, with fog all around them. To my teen heart, it was so unexpected and so cool!

God blessed us with the opportunity to meet each of them individually at a big Christian music event one year. We were so excited!

After great success, the artists on DC Talk – Toby McKeehan, Michael Tait, and Kevin Max Smith – eventually went their separate ways and did solo projects.

Michael Tait then went onto to become the front man of the Newsboys.

Kevin Max the lead vocalist for the new Audio Adrenaline.

And Toby continues his solo career as Toby Mac.

There’s no way for any human to measure the impact for Christ these guys are having on earth. Only in Heaven can we know.
