Cast Biography Michael Tait - !Hero
One-third of the GRAMMY award winning group, dc talk, Michael Tait admits he is a true "people person," a trait he most likely acquired while growing up in Washington, D.C. in a house full of siblings-five sisters and three brothers. He watched his sisters sing in church throughout his childhood, but Michael's involvement in music didn't come until later in high school, and then in college at Liberty University, where he met fellow dc talk members Toby McKeehan and Kevin Max. Currently the lead singer of his own band, Tait, Michael released his solo project Empty in 2001, and has two singles at Christian radio right now: "Talk About Jesus" at CHR and "Tell Me Why" at AC.
Mark Stuart - Petrov
As the son of missionaries and the lead singer for Audio Adrenaline, Mark Stuart never anticipated the longevity of the band that got its start at Kentucky Christian College in 1992. After opening shows for dc talk in the early days to a string of #1 hits and Dove awards, Audio Adrenaline has become one of the top youth group bands today. Currently wrapping up recording on Audio Adrenaline's next studio album, Worldwide, Mark says this new album is the best yet.
Rebecca St. James - Maggie
Native Australian and Grammy winner, 25-year-old Rebecca St. James has been recording music since age 15. She is currently getting ready to release her first greatest hits record titled Wait For Me: The Best from Rebecca St. James. Not only does Rebecca sing on stage but she also ministers to the crowd about her salvation and her decision to be sexually abstinent until marriage. The song "Wait For Me" addresses the subject of abstinence and is a love song from Rebecca to her future husband.
