Steven Curtis Chapman

His music a cross between '70s-style light rock and orchestrated pop, Steven Curtis Chapman has been one of the most prominent performers of contemporary Christian music since the '80s. Born and raised in Paducah, Kentucky, Chapman learned to play several instruments while hanging out in his father's music store, excelling at guitar and piano. As a young man, he enrolled as a pre-med student at Anderson College in Indiana. He soon decided to pursue a music career and dropped out to go to Nashville, where he began working in a music show at Opryland USA. When not performing, he was busy writing songs, a skill he learned from his father. One of Chapman's tunes was recorded by the Imperials, a prominent gospel group, marking the beginning of his songwriting success; many of gospel and country's brightest stars, including Sandi Patti, Billy Dean, Glen Campbell, and Roger Whittaker, have gone on to record Chapman's songs.

Although several different labels and music publishers were interested in him by 1987, he decided to sign with the major Christian music company Sparrow. That year he cut his first album, First Hand. The first single released from the album, "Weak Days," made it to number two on the contemporary Christian chart. His second album, 1988's Real Life Conversations, earned him four more hits, including the number one song "His Eyes." Co-written with James Isaac Elliott, it earned the Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year award from the Gospel Music Association in 1989. That year, he also won a GMA award for Best Songwriter of the Year. Released later that year, his third album, More to This Life, contained four number one hits and in 1990 earned him an unprecedented ten nominations at the GMA Awards (he won five). His next album, For the Sake of the Call, which contained five number one singles and earned him another slew of GMA awards and his first Grammy in the Best Pop Gospel Album category, only strengthened his position as the king of Christian music.

In 1992, Chapman made a successful bid to attract a more mainstream audience with The Great Adventure, which also won a Grammy, and its accompanying title track video. When Sparrow Records was purchased by EMI/Liberty, they began marketing the album in discount stores, and in 1993, it went gold. Also released in 1993 (both as a video and CD), The Live Adventure won more GMA awards and also earned Chapman a new award from American Songwriter magazine, Songwriter and Artist of the Year. Chapman released his seventh album, Heaven in the Real World, in 1994 and embarked on a major tour. In 1996, Chapman released Signs of Life, which was followed three years later by Speechless. Though Chapman's albums had always done well on the Billboard CCM charts, in 2001, after the release of Declaration, he really began to get even more attention on the Top 200. Both it and 2002's All About Love peaked in the Top 15, and his 2004 record, All Things New, made it to number 22. In September 2005, in time for the holiday season, Chapman released All I Really Want for Christmas, and the following year, Musical Blessing came out. Beauty Will Rise arrived in 2009. Following 2011's Re:Creation, he left his longtime label Sparrow Records and signed with Reunion Records, which released Joy, Chapman's third Christmas album, in 2012. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

I love his song Cinderella it's so good yet so sad
And we will finally understand what it means, so we'll sing Holy. Holy
Holy..... And we keep waiting for that day.... Keep waiting for that..
Day ....... Our. God. Is. In. Control
This is not where, I , planned to be .
When I started this Journey.... But this is where, I, am .... My. God. Is
In. Control . Though this first taste is bitter.... There. Will. Be. Sweetness, Forever..... When we..
Finally taste and see... That. Our
God. Is. In. Control . And we'll sing
Holy. Holy. Holy, . Is. Our. God ...
Maybe , your thinking , I'm crazy..
Maybe , I need to explain, some things .... Cause, I , know , I , have
An enemy, waiting, who wants to
Bring me pain ... But what he never seems to remember... WhAt , he means for evil, God works for Good
So. I. Will. Not. Retreat. Or. Surrender... BRING IT ON .... Let
The Lightning flash, let the thunder
Roll..... I don't want to sound like some hero, cause it's God, that my
Hope is in ... But I'm not going to run from the very thing... That will drive me clo
I may not see, in front of me .... But
I can see for miles when I look over my shoulder.... And Lord it's clear, "You've" Brought me here .... So
Faithful, every step of the Way ...
.... What can I do, but follow "You"
"You" are the Way, theTruth, the Life .... My Savior, My Friend.. From
Beginning to end..... So where else
Could I turn? Where else could I go? Lord , without "You" , this child, would be, so lost...... I .. Am .
Found ... In ...... "You"
I can hear... The voice of fear, saying... Let. Me. Show. You. Another. Way ..... So I cry out......
My. Lord. Jesus.... It's in "Your" Love for me... That I . Find All that
.. I ... Need .... So where else, could I turn? .... And where else could I go? ... "You". Have. Given. Me. Life
"You". Have. Made. Me. Whole.....
"You" have Rescued, My Soul....
So where else could I go? ... I .. Am
Found .... In ..... "You" ....
Never underestimat e the power of cinders
this Cinderella song really hits my emotions...m y father passed away from cancer when I was little. But it's ok cause I know he's with God and not going through the pain!! Please just pray for those who do have cancer and their families because cancer is very devastating. . T h a n k s !
It was written because of his first daughter that's older, and the time he missed out with her. He did write one for the youngest one - it talks about sticky kisses, from syrupy pancakes that she loved so well! What a tribute to little 'rock face'. You can read Mary Beth Chapman's book, 'Choosing to See'. Pretty awesome!
LUV STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN!!! My mom has 12 somgs by him on her phone and I listen 2 them all the time!!! My 2 fav songs by him r Glorious Unfolding and Love Take Me Over!!! KEEP ON SINGING AND PRAISING THE LORD STEVEN!!!
God is good. I love this song but its so sad. Cinderella is another song that just brings me to tears. I can't believe he is still writing even after the accident .
God is good
I love my dad and he is in the army so I don't see him much........ . I f something ever happened to him I would cry forever!!!!! ! ! S a m e with my siblings or my mom I love all my family that God has blessed me with I couldn't ask for anything any better!!!!!! ! !
I love the song
But we will never know the Awesome Power... Of. The. Grace.
Of. God. Until..... We let ourselves
Get swept away, in this Holy Flood
So. Take. My. Hand. We'll close our
Eyes, and count to three... And. Take. The. Leap. Of. Faith....... . . . .
....... Come.. On... Let's..... Go ....
There is a Supernatural Power... In this, Mighty,River s . . . . Flow .. It can
Bring. The. Dead. To. Life..... And..
It. Can. Fill. An. Empty. Soul......
....... And. Give. A. Heart. The. Only
Thing. Worth. Living. ...... And ...
Dying....... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . For..
Please. Please. Please.... Only ...
"You" ....... Only..... "You" . Please
Please. Please.... Make my heart..

This amazing. The story behind it is amazing. His daughter got run over, so he wrote this song to tell all the other dad's out there to spend all the time they can withtheir daughters now.
