There's just something about that voice. Andy Chrisman is "one" of the voices that has helped the 3.5 million record selling group 4HIM garner over 22 hit singles as well as multiple Dove Awards and industry accolades. Andy's debut solo effort (aptly entitled ONE) delivers worship-inspiring contemporary music featuring self-penned lyrics that reveal his love of Scripture, his heart for ministry, and his zeal for leading people into the throne room of God-all tied up in a shimmering package of THAT VOICE. The album's statement of faith is summarized by the track entitled, "Believe." "The message of 'Believe' forms a concrete foundation for my first solo record and my ministry. Matthew 10:32 says, 'So I will acknowledge in front of my Father in heaven that person who acknowledges me in front of others,' and this is my way of acknowledging Him before men," Andy said. "For me, this solo project is simply a convergence of all the paths that I'm currently traveling. It is giving me the chance to express myself in a very personal way as I continue to sing and tour with 4HIM and as I also lead worship at my home church," Andy said. "The album is also giving me the chance to express myself as a songwriter." Andy ventured into the craft of songwriting when he accepted the call to be the music and worship pastor at Celebrate Church in Orlando, Florida. "I began writing songs to use during worship services at church-I must've written 50 or 60 songs in the first year I was there. I had a new forum in which to explore my songwriting and I realized just how much music there was inside of me," Andy said. Andy then partnered with businessman Scott Pierre to create a new record label. "Scott and I share the same vision for this company. Our label is designed to create a win-win relationship between the artists and the record label. Scott has years of business know-how and I've been in the music industry for 17 years and I recognize the importance of artists and management working together on the same plane." Chrisman's label, in association with SHELTERecords, is distributed through WORD Distribution. By the late 1990's, Andy sensed that something was missing in his life. "There was a tug in my gut-a burden. Then, I sensed God speaking to my heart telling me that I would sing and lead people before the throne in worship for the rest of my career," said Andy. This confirming peace led to a reassessment of his life goals. "I realized that my strengths centered around making records, performing live concerts and leading worship, but I didn't know how those three things would fit together. So my wife and I began to pray about a new direction," said Andy. Soon afterward, Andy's former pastor called and invited Andy to be the worship pastor at a church start-up in Celebration, Florida. "I realized that this offer was exactly the fulfillment of the elements in my life that I was seeking to combine," Andy said. Today, Andy and Jackie serve at Church on the Move in Tusa, OK. They have two children, Lucas and Kayleigh .
