But according to multiple Christian music sites, that was part of Adam Cunningham’s resume when he auditioned for Season 13.
Adam grew up in a Christian home in Iowa and began singing with his family’s traveling music ministry at age 7, according to ChristianMusic.com.
But he drifted from church as a high school student and young adult, even as he married and had his first child. He walked away from music too, taking a job in car sales.
“I was a terrible husband. A terrible father to your oldest child, who was the only one around at the time. I was just a jerk,” Adam told the 700 Club in a 2007 interview.
But then his wife became pregnant again. Three months into the pregnancy, the couple got the news that their baby son would be born with a hole in his abdomen, leaving his intestines exposed.
That’s when Adam turned back to God, praying for the health of his wife and baby boy. Their son, Brock, needed surgery immediately after birth, but left the hospital healthy three weeks later.
And Adam returned to music, Christian music.
He released a self-titled debut album featuring the single “You Are My God” in 2007. Four years later, he released a followup album, “What About Tonight.”
He also became a worship leader, first at a small church in in Mocksville, N.C., and eventually at a non-denominational ministry called The Loop in Nashville.
Since that sophomore album, he’s released three singles under his own name — “Martin’s Song,” “Dear God Breathe on Us Now,” and, most recently, “I’m a Fighter” (2016).
Judging from his social media accounts, he’s also been busy recording demos for other artists, including Darius Rucker.
Here’s are links to Adam’s social media accounts, followed by a couple of samples of his music.
