Pioneering contemporary Christian recording artist Carman returns to the stage once again after a life-threatening battle with cancer. He presents a brand new concept, appropriately named “CinemaSonic Experience” — a concert, movie, play and crusade all in one.

Surrounded by six giant LED screens, Carman will bring people out of their seats and rolls back the clock. It’s an evening of miracles; the first is seeing a man who’s led over a million people to Christ shake off certain death to once again dazzle the crowds.
