My favorite Christian artist from the past 30 years. Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of his death. I moved from my youth into young adulthood singing his songs - "Awesome God," "Sometimes by Step," "Hold Me Jesus," and many more.
"Today is the 20th anniversary of Rich Mullins’ death.
More than just a Christian music artist, he was one of those souls who had the ability to make other believers uncomfortable in the best type of way.
On Sept. 19, 1997, he was returning from a concert in his jeep when he lost control and ejected from the vehicle. He was then hit by a semi-trailer truck and died on the scene at age 41."
