(WMC-TV) - If you had a legitimate shot at becoming a rock star, would you go for it with every ounce of your energy?
A musician with all the gifts required to launch into the American rock and roll stratosphere took a very different trajectory, indeed.
John Michael Talbot, former member of a band that opened 1970s concerts for mega-rock luminaries like Pink Floyd and The Grateful Dead, arrives in Hernando, MS October 9-11 as the world's most popular Catholic recording artist.
A visit to his website http://www.johnmichaeltalbot.com/index.php reveals a tour de force of Christian evangelization that features Talbot's 53 albums, 24 books, and a variety of his recordings as a motivational speaker.
Talbot has sold more than 4 million records and his compositions can be found in hymnals around the world.
