Jeremy Camp is an award-winning Christian vocalist and guitarist whose thoughtful lyrics and booming voice have earned him legions of fans and accolades. Camp was raised in a Christian home and drew musical inspiration from worship music and secular tunes alike.
Camp's musical influences include U2, Delirious?, Jars of Clay, and Steven Curtis Chapman. His father, a pastor, taught his son how to play guitar. After completing high school, Camp attended a bible college in Southern California for two years.
When one of the worship leaders at the school heard Camp playing with some friends at his dormitory, he urged him to become involved with their music ministry program, and soon Camp was performing at Christian music events all over California, recording a self-released disc called Burden Me in 2000.
At one such appearance, Camp met a young woman named Melissa, and the two struck up a friendship that blossomed into a romance. When Melissa broke off the relationship after a few months, Camp was crushed, but when he next saw her, her life had taken a serious turn -- she was in the hospital with ovarian cancer.
When Melissa went into remission, Camp married her, but after their honeymoon, they discovered the cancer had returned, and in early 2001 she passed away at the young age of 21. Camp poured both his sorrow and the faith that helped see him through into his music, and in 2002 he was signed to BEC Recordings, who released his first nationally distributed album, Stay; it was both a critical and commercial success, and five songs from the disc reached the top of the Christian singles chart.
While touring in support of Stay, Camp met singer Adrienne Leisching, former singer with the Benjamin Gate; the two hit it off, and in 2003 they were married. Camp's twelfth studio album, The Story's Not Over, in 2019.
In 2020, a film titled I Still Believe after Camp's iconic song, was released. The film, which stars KJ Apa, Britt Robertson, and Shania Twain, is a Christian biographical drama that follows Camp's tragic love story with his late wife.
