Chuck Girard is a pioneer of Contemporary Christian music.[1] He was born August 27, 1943 in Los Angeles, California, and moved to Santa Rosa, California in his young teens. He was a founding member of Love Song, the first Christian rock band to become popular in the United States.[1]
He became a solo artist in 1975, after leaving the surf rock band, The Hondells, and wrote and performed the songs “Sometimes Alleluia” and “Rock ‘N’ Roll Preacher”,[1] both of which were featured on his debut Chuck Girard, an album that featured the band Ambrosia prominently throughout.
