ICM Female Vocalist of the Year
Mary James is a Christian artist, worship leader, speaker, writer; wife to Dan and mother to Tyler and Jessica. Sharing her story with vulnerability, depth and a refreshing dose of candor, Mary knows what it means to struggle, hurt, fail, and feel unworthy of forgiveness — she’s been there. From a childhood riddled with abandonment, divorce and self-destructive choices, Mary ran headlong into the restorative love of Jesus, changing her life forever. Today, her life, music and message shouts, ‘He makes all things new!’ challenging her audience to consider their own lives in light of this truth. Those who hear Mary’s heart can’t help but find encouragement and the hope to believe transformation is possible. “We are all broken — but we are desperately loved. Through Christ you can rise above your circumstances, brokenness and failures to live truly liberated. No one is too far gone. No one.” Recognized as a three-time Inspirational Country Music Association™ (ICMA) Female Vocalist of the Year and 2016 ICMA Video of the Year recipient for her pro-life video “Fearfully, Wonderfully Made,” she is President of her own non-profit organization dedicated to sharing the love and life-giving message of the Gospel.
