Jeremy Camp was born in Lafayette, Indiana.[1] His father Tom, the pastor at Harvest Chapel (associated with Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa), taught him how to play guitar.[2] After completing high school, Camp attended Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta, California, for two years and earned an associate of theology degree.[3] After one of the worship leaders heard him play in the kitchen of the school, he urged Camp to become a part of the worship team. Soon, he led worship and played all over Southern California.

Musical career

Camp has scored 32 No. 1 hits on Christian Radio across all formats (Contemporary Hit Radio, Hot AC, Rock, and Inspirational Charts). His album Beyond Measure contributed six back-to-back No. 1 hits, including the track "Let It Fade" which held the No 1. spot for 10 weeks on AC Radio.[4] Camp has spent 175 weeks total at No. 1 across various formats in his career to date.[5] His first single was "Understand". He has made ten music videos: "Understand", "Walk by Faith", "Take You Back", "Tonight", "Give You Glory", "Let It Fade", "I Am Willing" (a song that was not included on any of his albums), "Speaking Louder Than Before", "The Way", and "Reckless". He also has video devotionals for several songs on YouTube and Godtube. He has also released a DVD, In24, which chronicles a regular day on-tour, and often keeps his fans updated on his touring with Tour Blogs through his YouTube channel. Live Unplugged from Franklin, TN also includes a DVD of the concert, which was recorded for the live album. He also has scored a musical number, "This Man", and his video can be seen on YouTube. This video was made with clips from the film The Passion of the Christ.

Camp scored Christian music top spots for "Take You Back" and "Lay Down My Pride". He also was voted the Best Male Artist in the 2005 Reader's Choice Music Awards in the Christianity Today magazine.[6] Camp was also ASCAP 2005 Songwriter of the Year and won the Dove Award for the Male Vocalist of the Year for the second consecutive year. In 2005, he recorded the song "Open Up Your Eyes" for the compilation release Music Inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, a September 2005 album which contained original songs written by various Christian artists for the 2005 film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Camp closed the year with both Stay and Carried Me: the Worship Project being RIAA-certified as Gold.[6]

It was the 11th most played single on HR stations in 2007.[7] "Give Me Jesus," the third single off "Beyond Measure," made it into the top 5 on Inspirational radio. The fourth single, "Give You Glory," debuted on Jewish AJ radio at No. 16. His song "Let It Fade" was the seventh most played song on HR radio in 2007.
