How This Gospel Band Became Famous

MercyMe is a contemporary Christian band that formed in 1994. They are a super popular band with powerful messages. Here’s how the band became famous.

1. The lead singer gained musical experience in a choir.

In the beginning, Bart Millard, who is the lead singer, took choir as an elective in high school. He suffered from an injury that he received when he was playing football.

Joining a local music organization such as a choir or a community theater is a great way to learn the ins and outs of performance.

2. They released independent projects.

MercyMe went on tour, and they performed before crowds before they became famous. This practice normally leads to a famous lifestyle because it increases the chances of being discovered by a record label producer.

In 2002, they finally came out with an album, entitled Spoken For, that was ranked No. 2 on the charts.

3. Family inspired the band’s meaningful name.

Millard was a youth ministry intern in Florida. His youth pastor recruited him. His grandmother would tease him by repetitively saying, “Well, mercy me, why don’t you get a real job?”. This inspired the band’s now world famous name.

The best band names and song titles have a great story behind them. Look to your loved ones for inspiration.

It is possible to achieve the dream of becoming a famous musician. Just try your hardest to work hard in order to get your name out there. Believe in your goals as MercyMe did, and you’ll be well on your way to making a powerful name for yourself
