I first saw John Michael Talbot in concert 37 years ago. It was truly a life-changing experience. And I was able to see him LIVE again. I truly believe God is using JMT in new and powerful ways… RIGHT NOW. Go and see for yourself. This is a rare and unique time to see a rare and unique musical talent – and a true minister of the gospel. A Troubadour for the Lord!

I’ve known John Michael for more years than I’d like to remember. (I’m old). I’ve spent weeks with him on the road, and seen him deal with all kinds of high pressure situations, both onstage and off.
John’s heart has always revealed the love and compassion of Christ. His music is uniquely his own and has profoundly ministered to tens, if not hundreds of thousands over the years, maybe even millions. Barry McGuire – Pop Music ICON, “Eve of Destruction”
