ARTIST OF THE DAY
Born and raised in Indiana, Rich Mullins was a farm boy with Quaker roots. He studied classical piano while playing for his church with his grandmother. As a child, Mullins was a part of a regionally touring group, The New Creations Choir. He later used his fame and money to found New Creations church and school for teens.
The profits from his tours and the sale of each album went to his church, which divided it up, paid Mullins the average salary in the U.S. for that year, and gave the rest to charity. He was considered a radical for bucking the mega-church trends of the 80s.
"..if I want to identify fully with Jesus Christ, who I claim to be my savior and Lord, the best way that I can do that is to identify with the poor."
Mullins was heavily influenced by St. Francis of Assisi. In 1997, he composed a musical called Canticle of the Plains, a retelling of the life of St. Francis set in the Old West. He also spent a lot of time evangelizing and living with Native Americans (particularly the Navajo). Mullins died in a car accident in 1997.
Famous Albums: Winds of Heaven, Stuff of Earth (1988), The World As Best As I Remember It, Volume One (1991) and A Liturgy, A Legacy, & A Ragamuffin Band (1993).
