Carman was the first Christian artist that I ever listen to, he introduced me to Christian music and I will forever be grateful for the path that he set me on... Dawn

I was An All Out 80s chick! All of the great ROCK bands of that decade! But NONE of them had the gifts & talents like Carman. If you didn't get fired up & sold out to Jesus after one of Carmans gigs- then you dont have a beating ❤. But Carman knew how to jump Start it real quick❤ And you thot none of us still cared. Much Love Carman- NOBODY did it better than YOU!

You were my first Christian concert as a teen, you introduced me to this wonderful music. Your style kept me coming back for more and got me interested in getting saved. I would leave your concerts on such a high for the Lord it was incredible. Thank you for so many years of your incredible music ministry. I wouldn’t have my wonderful relationship with the Lord if it wasn’t for you. ❤

Quero dizer que fiquei surpreso, nos anos 90 eu era um jovem cristão, e fiquei espantado com este homem a frente do seu tempo, com seus clips musicais e interpretações claras da vida cristã, Deus conforte a família e com certeza este guerreiro voltou pra casa para ser condecorado pelo seu imenso esforço e trabalho! meus sentimentos!

Thank you for decades of uplifting music and praise! You fought the good fight... now rise high and bask in the joy of our Savior! You will be missed but your legacy lives on! I'll see you when I get there!

I am sure gonna miss you my friend. I still remember that day when I went out to pick you up at the airport back in the early eighties. Your music has changed my life and has affected my kiddos in a very positive way.I've done a lot in the business in the past 30 years.I was even the original voice of the mortal cry combat video game, movie and soundtrack.I know your up there singing in the angels are dancing.

I don't know why but God put you on my heart this morning and then said he is dead. So I looked you up on the web only to find out that it was true. I was then led to this sight. I pray peace for your family. May God send his comforter to comfort them. May they stay connected to the vine of God for he will be there strength. In Jesus name. All that you seek is in the word of God.He will never leave you or forsake you.

I was out in L.A. Calif. job hunting in 1994, I was from Colorado and not familiar with driving 5 freeway interchanges into downtown. I would attend Jack Hayfords "Church On The Way" in Sherman Oaks before heading back to where I was staying. One evening at church the associate pastor ask " Is there a woman here who is afraid to drive the freeways and needs the laying on of hands?," I and two other women raised their hands & they laid hands on all three of us.

Carman was truly a light in this world. He was unashamed of the gospel. His life for Christ did not stop on February 16th, 2021 but continues to sing bright for the LORD Jesus Christ our Savior.
