I still remember when I did an exclusive interview with gospel music sensation Carman. It wasn't too long after he got his cancer diagnosis—and he was mad with the devil.
After several months of constant colds and fatigue, doctors diagnosed Carman with myeloma in February 2013. Myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells, is deadly. Doctors gave him three to four years to live. But Carman, who has recorded 15 gold and platinum albums and videos and has sold more than 10 million records, refused to go down without an all-out war.

"I'm going back after the devil. If he wants to come after me, I'm going after him," Carman said in an exclusive interview with Charisma News. "I've always had this concept of spiritual warfare. I am going to make a determination that if, in fact, I only have three good years, then I am going to make them count."
Now, he's glorifying the God who heals.
"Three years ago, I was diagnosed with incurable cancer and given a short time to live," says Carman, whose birth name is Carman Licciardello. "With God's grace, coupled with your prayers and support, I won my war, and today I'm 100 percent cancer-free."
Carman says his concerts and tours have an added dimension of hope and healing they've never had before.
"People come to these concerts with their faith held high, believing for a miraculous touch from God," Carman says. "And they aren't disappointed."
