Perry LaHaie is best known as a recording artist with FrontiersUSA, an international community of people dedicated to inviting Muslims all over the world to follow Jesus. LaHaie uses his platform as a recording artist to challenge believers from across America to take the gospel to the Muslim world.
His upcoming project, Him, produced by Grammy Award winning engineer Andy Hunt, follows his 2008 debut, Endless Fields, and his follow-up CD, Ahead. Him features ten original songs and reimagined hymns which skillfully tell the most amazing rescue story of all time--the story of Jesus Christ.
Him features Nashville players Jared Kneale (drums), Matt Melton (bass), Matt Stanfield (keys), Nathan Dugger (guitars), and Buckley Miller (engineer), with additional songwriting and background vocals provided by LaHaie's adult children, Kali Joy and Taylor.
While LaHaie has emerged as a singer/songwriter of formidable talent, he says his music is a means to an end, rather than an end in itself. "Writing songs for me is not a job; it is more like bearing fruit," he says. "We produced this album to inspire people to appreciate the depths of God's grace, and to recognize the responsibility and privilege of taking that grace to the nations. The love of Christ compels us to go."
LaHaie currently can be heard as an on-air radio personality weekday mornings on 89.3 FM Grand Rapids, MI, as a co-host of Perry and Shawna Mornings. He is also the host of the nationally syndicated radio feature, Cast Yourself In, a program that tells amazing stories of how God is working in the Muslim world. Cast Yourself In is broadcast on more than 100 stations and translators across the U.S., and worldwide through the Internet.
In addition to being a singer/songwriter and radio personality, LaHaie is a sought-after guest who has appeared on a number of national and international television shows, including the Cornerstone Television Network's flagship show, Real Life, and LeSea Broadcasting's The Harvest Show.
Of his journey of faith that has taken him across the U.S., Mexico, Thailand, Turkey, Russia and Belgium, he says, "Jesus has found me. And now He's invited me into this thing that's bigger than me, and not about me--His great work to bless the nations."
