Papoose - We Are The Streets
I know quite a few of the meanings. Is there a particular one you wanted?
No. They currently reside right-outside of Atlanta, Georgia in the USA. Crowns formed in Florida at first.
Here's a few facts: 1) Casting Crowns is one of the fastest selling, platinum-reaching Christian artists in history. Casting Crowns also won a Grammy for Lifesong. 2) Casti…ng Crowns are one of the ONLY American bands in the U.S. that North Korea invited to play some concerts at an international festival held there.

The only other band invited is also a Contemporary Christian band named the Annie Moses Band. 3) Casting Crowns is a Contemporary Christian 7-member band/group whose genre is soft-rock. 4) All their songs have great meanings, most of which get you thinking. The types of songs Mark Hall writes are about everyday people (everyone) and all the real-life situations everyone goes through. Their songs are also about the Christian life and how we try to get the things we have in our heads, into our hands and feet. 5) The 7-members are: Mark Hall, Melodee DeVevo, Juan DeVevo, Chris Huffman, Hector Cervantes, Megan Garrett and Brian Scoggin (was Andy Williams). 6) The band has a husband and a wife team, Juan and Melodee DeVevo, who have 2 kids, Jesse and Rory. 7) All 7-members are married and all have kids. Also, they are all youth pastors and/or work with the youth. 8) They're friends with SCC (Steven Curtis Chapman); SCC is one of the people who "discovered" Crowns. In 2003, their first tour was with SCC. 9) Their 2010 Spring Until The Whole World Hears Tour is with Caleb, Kutless and Tenth Avenue North. 10) They have 4 music videos: American Dream (Self-titled album), Does Anybody Hear Her (Lifesong), Slow Fade (The Altar And The Door) and Until the Whole World Hears (Until the Whole World Hears). 11) Their 3rd studio album, The Altar and the Door, debuted at #2 on the billboard 200 selling over 129,000 copies in its first week. In addition, Casting Crowns is the only artist in the Billboard 200's Top 5 to demonstrate an upward sales trend from its last release.

Me! I'm infuenced by Casting Crowns in numerous ways. There music is so inspiring and has great messages! One thing that really draws me is the honesty and the passion of the …lyrics. It challenges me to step-up to the plate and to grow deeper in my relationship/ friendship with Jesus Christ so I can see the world the way Jesus sees the world! When you hear one of their songs, it make you stop and think. The "church, the body of christ" is influenced by their music because of the powerful lyrics and the sermons with in them. "One of the unique aspects of Mark's songs that has endeared so many people to the music of Casting Crowns is his ability to make you feel like you're listening to the heart of a good friend. He can ask you tough questions and you're not offended because you know he's wrestling with the same questions. He can challenge you because you sense that he's simply inviting you into the place where he has been challenged. He can offer you encouragement, and you know it's coming from a place of hurt and hope that has been lived anmd not just imagined for the purpose of writing a song. You never feel like you're getting "preached at," and yet his songs contain some of the most profound sermons." Steven Curtis Chapman (Lifestories By Mark Hall, Foreward page X).

"'Here I Go Again' is a prayer we all pray as we're walking up to the friend we've always known who we needed to share our faith with, and then we choke. We know the answers, …we have the training and the education far beyond our obedience, and the time comes to share our lives with somebody and fear takes the words out of our mouths. It's my frustration from my own cowardice at times." - Mark Hall (Casting Crowns) 2 Corinthians 5:16-21/ Romans 10:14
Casting Crowns' most successful song is probably East to West from "The Altar And The Door". Although, they are probably best known for Who Am I? or Voice of Truth from thei…r self-titled debut, or even Praise You In This Storm from "Lifesong".
The song Voice of Truth is basically Mark Hall's (the lead-singer and song-writer of Casting Crowns) testimony put to a song. The original name of 'Voice of Truth' when Mark o…riginally wrote it, was 'Fear'. It is Mark's story. The "Voice of Truth" is/ represents Jesus Christ. Via Mark Hall on Casting Crowns . com: "The beginnings of this song came from the first song I ever wrote, called "Fear." Growing up with dyslexia and some learning challenges, Satan used that in my life to keep me very small and very afraid to ever try anything, to ever leap out of my boat and do something that I knew I couldn't do. I'm learning that God often puts us in the position to do the unthinkable knowing we're not able to. God's not intimidated by what intimidates me and if I can just understand that all He wants me to do is obey him and that the things that scare me, don't scare Him. This was the first song Steven and I wrote on together, and he pulled out that chorus of 'voice of truth.'"
Before Casting Crowns was discovered, the members whom are youth pastors/ youth workers formed a worship band called 'Casting Crowns', and made 2 independent CD's for the stud…ents in their church youth groups and lead worship at their churches. Also it should be noted that Mark Hall; while he was functioning as a youth pastor was originally in a band called New Life Rookies which recorded a CD that had several songs which after some rearrangement would eventually make the cut for Casting Crown's self titled debut album. New Life Rookies also recorded the song While You Were Sleeping which remained relatively unchanged and was included on Lifesong; Casting Crowns second release. When Crowns was discovered by Christian music legend, Steven Curtis Chapman and Mark Miller they thought that the church, the body of Christ, and the world needed to hear the messages that Casting Crowns has is their songs. "One of the unique aspects of Mark's songs that has endeared so many people to the music of Casting Crowns is his ability to make you feel like you're listening to the heart of a good friend. He can ask you tough questions and you're not offended because you know he's wrestling with the same questions. He can challenge you because you sense that he's simply inviting you into the place where he has been challenged. He can offer you encouragement, and you know it's coming from a place of hurt and hope that has been lived and not just imagined for the purpose of writing a song. You never feel like you're getting "preached at," and yet his songs contain some of the most profound sermons." Steven Curtis Chapman (Lifestories By Mark Hall, Foreword page X).
All the members of Casting Crowns basically live near Atlanta, Georgia. (More South Atlanta.) So, Casting Crowns is based out of Atlanta, Ga.
The song Who Am I is about the love of God for His people. It refers to the fact that we are sinners and our lives quickly fade away but yet the God of all creation cares for …about every detail of our lives and even though we sin, He still loves and still picks us back up again to set us on the right path. It also refers to the fact that we are His and we can find comfort in knowing that and not live in fear.
Casting Crowns first formed as a band in 1999 as a student worship band at the church they were at, at that time. Later, when members moved to another church, a member or tw…o left. At the same time, new members joined the band (whom are still in the band today).
