I Can Only Imagine
The song you know. The story you don’t.
Would be nice to have an audience...
’’I Can Only Imagine’’ is the biggest-selling Christian popular song of all time . Amazingly, the song was written in mere minutes by MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard. He was able to do that because it was born of his life experiences. Growing up in Greenville, Texas, he suffered physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father. When dad becomes terminally ill, he finds redemption by embracing his faith and rediscovering his love for his son. Years later, Bart’s troubled childhood and mended relationship with his dad inspires him to write the song. The film has done surprisingly well at the US box office, despite the middling press reviews.
