In their hometown of Dallas, TX, the band filled American Airlines Center’s 18,000 seats, while thousands of other concert-goers were not able to enter, because the venue had reached maximum capacity.

  1. WOW!! You have been a blessing to my heart and soul! Keep doing God’s work, because your songs speak volumes. My daughters and I listen to you everyday. I have you on my blog, and my youngest is even singing one of your songs in her school talent show. They go to a public school and what a blessing to me that she has the desire to stand up and sing for Jesus, but also that she is able to. Thank you for all your songs that have blessed me to tears and shouts of praise!
    You are my favorite group and I pray that God blesses you all like you bless us. Thank you for minding God!

  2. I bought my copy of 10 yesterday and I want to tell you guys that the album rocks. Also everytime I listen to one of your cds I seem to feel closer to God. Keep up the good work for the Lord.

  3. I came home yesterday to find an unknown pachage from a unknown place addressed to my son using his paypal account (that I pay for) boy was I furious that he had ordered something as he is in college and I already pay for everything! As I was opening it, I was calling him to yell as only a Mom can, when the box opened and I realized it was my mercyme fan pack and quickly hung up the phone!! lololol I love the new songs put on the album and the beautiful version of ICOI. (who would have thought it could get better)

    BTW: What about the next album being a greatest hits, LIVE??

  4. Wow. I got my copy on Monday thru the mail. The last three songs are my favorites. And I especially love “I Can Only Imagine” with the London Symphony. Absolutely AMAZING!!

  5. I got my copy yesterday. I got the t-shirt, cd, dvd and signed copy of I Can Only Imagine. I had NO idea what the box was. I told my youngest son to open it while we were on our way to town to do errands. I screamed when I saw it. I was so happy. I called my honey and told him that we got it. The good part of this is that Mercy Me is so much more than a bunch of guys in a band. You are all Godly me that love your families and have an awesome job where you can worship the Creator of ALL things. We are aiming to go to your concert on June 6. That is the plan. I was going to bring the boys to the road show but hubby couldn’t make it thru the week so we are doing the other show. I will be wearing my wonderful new 10 shirt. Thanks for being a blessing. Hubby just called and says hi.

  6. I had ordered mine several months ago when it first went online sale through MM site and I had almost forgotten about it. Then I saw the UPS man coming up my driveway and a little bell went off in my head – TODAY IS THE DAY! It was one of life’s little surprises. That is one of the many advantages to being able to order things early. I pray that God continues to bless your music and your ministry for the many years to come:)

  7. LOVE IT!!!!!!! You guys ever considered doing a childrens praise and worship project? You could start with Ten Simple Rules and It’s Gonna Be Alright. Just a thought:)
