Following the campaign’s end June 18, $538,103 was raised, more than doubling his goal and solidly becoming the second most successful Kickstarter music project ever.
The campaign not only fully funds Carman’s new album and theatrical, movie-like music video being planned now, but also enables him to launch his first major, full production tour in over 13 years. For those that still want to contribute, but missed out on the Kickstarter campaign, donations are being accepted through Carman World Outreach at CarmanTV.com.
Holding attendance records from the 80s and 90s for the largest solo Christian concerts in history, the music and videos from Carman have always been the catalyst for bringing the message and hope of the gospel to the masses. With a major market tour across the U.S. being planned now, Carman’s fans have breathed life back into his ministry.
“Can you say ‘nothing is impossible’ with God,” says Carman to his Kickstarter backers. “You have not only given me my ministry back, but have restored my life following my cancer diagnosis. Through your prayers and words of encouragement, I’m ready to battle again. And because of your support, there is enough money to record, as well as bring full production into venues for the tour.”
While on tour, Carman will share new music he is writing now alongside his hit songs and most recent offering, “The Flag,” a compelling anthem that weaves the Pledge of Allegiance into a melodic and inspirational message of pride in America. “The Flag” concept video can be seen now at YouTube, and Carman’s latest tour schedule can be seen at CarmanLive.com.
