Although Anthem Lights first came to the surface through many of their powerful songs such as "Can't Get Over You" and "I Wanna Know You Like That," the four vocalists have gained a significant fan base due to their variety of cover songs, and "Mashups;" (collaborations of different popular songs), including their latest highlighting the 2014 K-LOVE Fan Awards Songs of the Year Nominees. See the video of the song, as well as download it on iTunes at www.klove.com/events/fan-awards.
Anthem Lights originally came together by “accident” so to speak, when Chad Graham and Alan Powell teamed up to work on a solo project for Chad. Once they started collaborating, they both felt the songs would sound better performed by a group as opposed to a solo artist. With four talented vocalists (Alan Powell, Caleb Grimm, Chad Graham, and Joey Stamper), Anthem Lights delivers infectious harmonies and musical arrangements.
Following their self-titled debut, the band released their second album You Have My Heart (February 4, 2014), after departing from their record label and using the website kickstarter to raise money to fund the project. But even with all the exciting things happening for the band, the members of Anthem Lights are determined that their message takes center stage.
“We take this ministry very seriously,” says group member Chad Graham. “God has always been leading us down this path, and so we want to use what God has given us to get this message out to people who need it: ‘Your life has purpose and meaning in Christ.’ We all struggle with the idea of perfection, and we all stumble and fall, but that purpose for our lives never goes away. And God never, ever gives up on us.”
