What a pleasure it is to present the one and only Jeremiah James Korfe. Jeremiah is an emerging artist from central Minnesota. With over 15K facebook fans his momentum is just getting started!

When approached with the chance to be a part of CMT's hit series Sweet Home Alabama, he jumped at it and became the season 3 winner which led to the debut of his first country music video on CMT. It charted in the top 10 for 5 weeks and held at #6 for 2 full weeks!

Phillips has been intrigued by a type of religious belief called dispensationalism – the idea that the Christian Bible is a divinely inspired book of prophecy filled with yet unfulfilled predictions of a future, a demonic anti-Christ who will one day rule the entire Earth and will cause a catastrophic world war.  This idea is at the heart of the bestselling Left Behind Series novels.
