Christian music hits Extreme Makeover Home Edition

Mark Schultz was featured on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. I rarely blog about contemporary Christian music artists. However, when their music is injected into culture - it's interesting to watch the results. Right now, Mark Schultz is the hottest Google trend. It will last for a few hours, or just one. But when else does a CCM artist make it into Google's rank?

I admire Mark ever since he appeared on the Crosswalk Show — a talk-show outreach my former church team put together. Mark has a way of telling stories with his music, similar to Country styled music. Mark quickly took requests from the audience and made it a personal evening. Amazing piano player and vocalist.

May God continue to strategically place His artists in the world that will influence others for His purposes instead of their own.

In a short span of eight years, Schultz incredible talent and God-centered music has garnered rave reviews, chart-topping hits and a strong fan base. He reached Platinum status in 2005, won his first Dove Award that year, named one of Christian Music Todays top male vocalists in 2003 and was listed No. 1 as Billboards Hot Christian Adult Contemporary Songwriters last year. In addition to nine No. 1 hits, Schultz song, Hes My Son, was recognized by Esquire magazine and his Letters From War was selected as the centerpiece of U.S. Armys Be Safe Make It Home campaign in 2004. He has further been featured on 48 Hours and CNN.
