RIP Gospel Artist Carman, liciadello Describes His Treatment By Christians Following Cancer Diagnosis
•Premiered Mar 21, 2021
Trailblazing Christian music artist Carman Licciardello, known to fans simply as Carman, passed away Tuesday at a Las Vegas, Nevada hospital after fighting a series of complications resulting from surgery to repair a hiatal hernia.
Carman, a GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame member, had turned 65 while in the hospital on Jan. 19.In announcing Carman's death on Feb. 16, his manager Matt Felts said, "This world has lost a light in the darkness but today Carman saw first hand the fruit of his labors."
Carman wasn't just an iconic Christian musician, he was also an inspired evangelist who led countless tens of thousands of souls to Christ throughout his decades-long ministry.
Two-time GRAMMY winner and Christian music artist Jason Crabb said, "There will never be another Carman. His was the very first CCM concert I ever attended.
I'll never forget going to Roberts Municipal Stadium in Evansville, IN with my youth group – I think every youth group went to see him. He was a trendsetter and a trailblazer, who had a vision to impact his audience with groundbreaking music and storytelling through powerful, cinematic videos all with one purpose: to point people to Jesus.
I know there are millions today who accepted Christ at one of his concerts. As kids, I remember me and my friends acting out his song, "The Champion." He made it cool to be a Christian. Never in a million years would I think that 25 years later I would get to know this man and call him a friend. Carman, we will miss you, but I know we will see you again."#RIPCarman
That is all.....
