One of our readers requested a feature series where we would feature different artists and their favorite songs (sang or written). We decided on starting the feature series, but hadn't quite decided on a name, when Mercy suggested Behind the Songs (yes, it is a play on words! Ya' know, behind the scenes/behind the songs?!? :D).
Anyways, for the first Behind the Songs we will be featuring Chris Allman, Tenor for Greater Vision.
- Tell us a little bit about yourself. "Chris Allman… Tenor singer for Greater Vision. I am married with four children and two grandchildren. I’ve been blessed to be in full time ministry for the past 25 years and pray that I will remain in that position until I pass or the Lord returns."
- What is your favorite song that you have either performed or written. "One of my favorite songs that I’ve written is Another Child’s Coming Home."
- Tell us the story behind your favorite song. "I believe the Lord sang that song into my spirit when I was going thru a tough time in my own life and wasn’t living as I should in regards to my relationship with the Lord. It is a song about the father waiting on his son to return home. Our Father in Heaven has a heart that is eager to welcome each of those children who have wandered far from Him back home with open arms. When we perform that song, I hear testimonies of those who either have children or grandchildren who have strayed and it seems to give them hope that all will be well."
