Gospel music recording artists Phil & Pam Morgan's message of hope and encouragement has touched lives around the world. Their story has been told on Oprah, Montel, TBN, Discovery Health's "Only A Miracle" and The 700 Club, as well as in many national newspapers and magazines including Woman's World. Their music can be heard on Christian radio across the United States, Australia and Europe. Phil and Pam's live concerts are an unforgettable blend of music, humor and heart-to-heart honesty, inspiring audiences to keep walking with God. Here's a bit our their history in their own words...
The roots and events leading to our ministry go back many years, but it began officially in 1996 with the recording of our first project, "Faith, Hope, and Love". Recorded in Kansas City, this collection of Phil's original songs reflected life lessons we had learned up to this point. We hit the road about one weekend a month spreading God's message with sincere hearts and a down-to-earth presentation. 1997 brought a much fuller concert schedule, a weekly radio program called "Sounds of Praise", and the release of two recordings, "Gospel Favorites Live" and "Merry Christmas", plus the single, "Hold Me". Pam went part-time at the insurance company January of 1998 as our schedule continued to pick up.
In April of 1999, God opened the door to record in Nashville. We worked with Mark Burchfield's studio to cut the instrumentation, and were led to Michael Sykes Productions to work with producer, David Ponder, on vocals. The result was "WHAT MATTERS MOST", a collection of Phil's songs focusing the listener on what God wants our priorities to be. We released two singles, "Under the Blood", and "God Chooses Who He Uses". In March of 2000, we took a leap of faith at God's calling, and Pam quit her insurance job to dedicate herself entirely to the ministry and family.
By this time, "What Matters Most" was receiving national airplay and the single, "God Chooses Who He Uses" was beginning to climb the charts. We were booked solid with 3 to 4 concerts every weekend in about a ten state area. It was exciting to see audiences moved and convicted in their faith by the strong scriptural content of our songs.
Phil started a weekly e-mail newsletter which gave ministry updates, tour schedules, and prayer concerns. We also included weekly devotions that God laid on our hearts from real life experience. Little did we know that what started as a tool to help others, would soon turn into a key source from which we received prayers and support after our life-changing accident June 4, 2000.
We were off the road for 15 months as God worked to restore Pam's body and stretch us both in our faith, trust, and commitment to Him and each other. Phil wrote these experiences into what became our next CD, "LIVING PROOF", recorded exactly one year after our devastating accident. The corresponding tour was a huge success.
In 2004, we headed back to the studio to record "GOTTA KEEP WALKIN'". We were excited to work with producer Kevin Stokes, who helped add a more contemporary edge to our sound. This 12 song collection (10 written by Phil) runs the gamut from intimate to energetic. Great listening with no compromise on the message.
We continue to share powerful music and testimony that is reaching more people with God's message of hope, love, and faithfulness than ever before. Our journey has not been an easy one, but we rejoice that we can encourage others to press on through the valleys, trusting Jesus to guide them with His comforting hand.
We firmly believe, the best is yet to come!
