Acclaimed Christian singer in town

-A A +A

Award winner has shared stage with the Byrds, Pink Floyd and the Grateful Dead.

By Kirsten Laskey

John Michael Talbot sang rock-n-roll, founded a Franciscan monastery and became a Christian musician and author.  
Talbot is performing songs, motivational teachings and meditations through Thursday at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church. The performances are free but donations or “love offerings” are appreciated.
Talbot began in the music business at age 18 with the band, Mason Proffit, according to his website www.johnmichaeltalbot.com. Although the band got to share the stage with The Byrds, Pink Floyd and The Grateful Dead, Talbot saw the alcohol and drug use that came with stardom and said he felt that the life of a rock star was empty and sad.  
This discovery led Talbot to take a spiritual journey. Eventually, he converted to Catholicism and entered the Christian music scene.
Talbot has recorded 40 albums and sold about 4 million records. His work earned him a Dove Award for Album of the Year in 1982. Talbot is one of nine artists to receive the President’s Merit Award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
Billboard magazine named him the No. 1 Christian Artist in 1988.
