    Carman is a contemporary Christian music artist and evangelist. He was born in Trenton, New Jersey. As a child, he played drums in his mother's band, then as a teen, he formed his own group. Around the age of 20, he moved to California.

    While attending an Andrae Crouch concert, Carman became a born again Christian, and embraced evangelicalism. In 1980, he made a custom album titled ''God's Not Finished with Me''. The following year, he was invited by Bill Gaither to tour with The Bill Gaither Trio. After relocating to Tulsa, Oklahoma, he released a moderately successful eponymous debut album (later issued as ''Some-o-Dat'')—which contained mostly novelty songs. Then, with the release of the live album ''Sunday's On The Way'' in 1983, a string of CCM chart successes started, beginning with the title song. As he continued his music career, Carman established the nonprofit organization Carman Ministries. With the 1985 release of The Champion came his first number-one song, of the same name. Another live album, Radically Saved, came in 1988. Then 1989 brought Carman his first number one album, Revival in the Land.

    Between 1987 and 1989, he was named Charisma magazine's readers' choice for favorite male vocalist. In 1990 and 1992, Billboard recognized Carman's influence in Christian music by naming him the Contemporary Christian Artist of the Year, and in 1995, he recorded his first album in Spanish, ''Lo Mejor'', which includes some of the already recorded songs such as "Who's in the House" and "The River". In 2000, the album ''Heart of a Champion'' came out with 30 of his best songs, including some new ones. In 2007, he updated his catalog with ''Instrument Of Praise''.

    Carman has received 15 gold and platinum albums and videos and has sold over 10 million records. He holds the world record for the largest single Christian concert in history with 80,000 attendees for a Charlotte, North Carolina show.

    He also participates in various television productions and interview duties as a host for both TBN in general and the network's flagship program Praise the Lord.
