Carmelo Licciardello may not be a name you know. That’s because, if you grew up in the 80s, 90s, and even today, you know the name Carman. He’s a Christian singer who not only has been a part of three generations of Gospel music, he paved the way by crossing genres and telling stories through his music. Some of his songs are a bit campy, but if you grew up in a Christian home, you probably learned more about God from his songs than from Sunday School. He has written so many songs, that I had to narrow it down to my top 25 Carman music videos.
