As an artist consultant working in Christian music, my job has
been to attend a great many concerts over the years. I have
attended so many, in fact, that sometimes I feel like there is
nothing new. I have seen it all. Many times, I have even let my
attention deficit kick in and left concerts early. Not expecting
anything different, I arrived for yet another concert on this
particular night. However, I was about to have a change of heart.
The artist was a husband and wife duo from the Midwest. Their
names were Phil and Pam Morgan.
I was familiar with their story. Pam had become a quadriplegic
after a tragic car accident traveling between concerts. Doctors
had given her little hope. However, Pam's faith in God and the
prayers of others shocked the naysayers, when she stood up one
year later and walked onto a concert stage to sing once again. A
truly miraculous story. The power of Almighty God seen in this day
and age. It was so astounding that the world took notice. Soon the
couple was guests on television shows such as Oprah and 700 Club.
Secular Newspapers and magazines, such as Women's World, could not
ignore the handprint of God on their lives.
As the lights dimmed in the concert, a video reenactment of the
accident came on the screen. The display of courage and
determination finally culminating in the unbelievable scene of Pam
standing was incredibly emotional. The narrator proclaimed "Walk
on out here Pam." With that, Phil and Pam took the stage singing,
"I stand by the power of Jesus." What a powerful testimony to
start this concert! They paused after the first song for what was
one of the longest standing ovations I have ever witnessed. Tears
fill the eyes of everyone in the room. I found myself hooked. Who
can ignore such anointing?
As their music continued, I was amazed at the Biblical strength
and truth portrayed in Phil's songwriting. His spontaneous humor
in between songs had everyone laughing, myself included. Soon I
realized I was having a great time. Through the warm and playful
banter back and forth between the couple, I noticed something that
I had not seen in some time from a duet. They were a team whose
love and support of each other was obvious. This overflowed during
their song "Jesus, Janet and Joe," a song about Christ being the
center of a successful marriage.
When I thought I had seen it all from the Morgan's, Phil sat
down at the piano displaying incredible musicianship on the
classic Hymn "Great Is Thy Faithfulness." This message, along with
Pam's honest and personal experiences she briefly shared, rang
clear that no matter what, God is sovereign. He cares and He
understands. God's presence filled the air as they closed with the
song "You're Not Alone."
I was so touched I went back to each of the six concerts they
held that weekend, including a women's conference. Each time it
felt as if I were seeing it for the first time. The next business
day I couldn't wait to hit the phones and the Internet. I was on
fire to let Christian music industry people, radio stations, and
Pastors know about this incredible experience.
I strongly encourage you not to miss the blessing God has for
you through the ministry of Phil and Pam Morgan. His miracle is
waiting for you, too.
Phil and Pam invite you to "experience the miracle" as they
powerfully present their amazing story. For more information on
