Jeremy Camp was born on January 12, 1978. He has already had six solo number one albums under his belt. This ordained minister mixes ballads and rock together to make up hit after hit songs.
He grew up in a Christian family. His father is the minister of Harvest Chapel in Lafayette, Indiana. He left home and headed to Southern California to attend Bible College. He was leading worship all over the school and even went to several southern California towns to lead worship services. He met his first wife through one of these meetings. She raised her hands while he was singing and he was amazed at how much she praised God.
Jeremy has been married twice. He lost his first wife, Melissa to ovarian cancer in 2001 and then in 2003 he married Adrienne Liesching. They have two daughters. His songs “I Still Believe” he wrote right after Melissa’s death. Then after he remarried he wrote, “Walk by Faith” during his honeymoon. After Melissa’s death, he has gained strength from it and is amazed at how many people have been affected by her passing and her life story. Others with ovarian cancer saw the strength and faith she had during her illness, which has given other the faith and strength to move ahead while fighting.
Jeremy moved his family back to Lafayette where he was born and raised to be close to his parents. He said it has been a blessing to have grandparents around the children now. The girls love being with them and soon their oldest will be in preschool.
During his career, he has released “Stay”-2002, “Carried me: the Worship Project”-2004, “Restored”-2004, and “Beyond Measure”-2006. All have been on Billboards top 10 and three are certified Gold.
He has had 14 singles released and all but three were number one on the charts. “Breather” was played the most on Christian CHR radio in 2006 in the number ten spot and “This man” was in the twentieth spot. He has been on a total of nine tours, spreading his love for God. He has received three awards so far with many more to come I am sure.
