Behind The Story
Meet my buddy Chris Estes. He’s a freelance marketing guy who lives in the Mobile, AL area. Chris is the reason I got into the music marketing industry. He hired me to work on his team at Integrity Music. He has worked with Hillsong, Desperation Band, Bethel Music, and a whole LOT more!
Who Is Carman?
Carmelo Domenic Licciardello known by his stage name, Carman, is a contemporary Christian music artist and evangelist. Carman has a great legacy in ministry that includes other record setting accomplishments. He holds the world record for the largest solo Christian Concerts in history with 80,000 attendees for a Charlotte, North Carolina show, and 71,132 indoors at Texas Stadium.
…A KEY Part of The Backstory:
On Valentines day 2013 Carman was diagnosed with incurable Multiple Myeloma Cancer and given a 3-5 year window of time. In order to put this into remission and be ready for his Spring 2014 tour he must go into chemotherapy right away. He will be under 24/7 medical care for the next 9 months straight.
