Casting Crowns

Mark Hall, Megan Garrett, Hector Cervantes, Juan Devevo, Melodee Devevo, Chris Huffman and Brian Scoggins are collectively known as Casting Crowns. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, the band was working together in youth ministry long before record labels came knocking at their door. Once their self-titled debut album released in 2003, they found that their ministry went far beyond the walls of one church (they were the only U.S. band invited to play at the 2007 April Art Friendship Festival in North Korea). Casting Crowns is the fastest CCM artist in its career to have its first two albums certified Platinum, and only the second in RIAA history ever to achieve it.
