Ralph Carmichael and Kurt Kaiser: "I'm Here. God's Here. Now We Can Start."

Released in 1973
in the heyday of "summer musicals"
for church youth groups,
and during the height of the 
"Jesus Movement."

This type of "contemporary musical context"
was the mainstream church's response
to the advent of what would soon 
come to be called 
"Contemporary Christian Music."

Evangelistic in nature and content,
these types of musicals
were very popular
and hugely successful.

This one also involved
Andrae Crouch and Danniebelle Hall.
