charlie hall beach.jpgI got a chance to sit down with Passion artist, Charlie Hall and his band, this past weekend at Scott Dawson’s Strength to Stand Conference in Pigeon Forge, TN. It is no wonder Charlie has been nominated for the Best Worship Artist for 2006 in CCM’s Reader’s Choice Awards! He’s certainly got my vote! This guy is amazingly kind and approachable. He was talking to anyone and everyone back stage at the conference! He and his band definitely don’t know they’re celebrities. Clearly, they just want to honor their God. (To watch the video…)

Even though they just got finished playing in front of 23,000 people at Passion ’07 in Atlanta, they hardly mentioned it to us. Their focus wasn’t on where they’d been; but rather, it was on being faithful where God had them right at that moment. This is an amazing interview. Check it out. – Dwayne Moore

Thanks, Charlie, for allowing me the opportunity to do this “impromptu” interview! (For the record, I have now officially purchased and listened to Flying Into Daybreak. It is everything I’d heard about it – Remarkable! And granted, Daybreak, is a much cooler name than Daylight!)

  • “The Sonic Boom of Justice” 
  • Band introduces themselves
  • Drove through ice to get here
