TobyMac-2103 Choir Project

At the end of every year our choir teacher has us do a report on one of our favorite singers or bands. For the 2012-2013 year I have decided on TobyMac. I have been a fan of him for a long time so I am really excited for this project.

Together they have five children. Two in which are adopted Starting carrer Starting out his carrer TobyMac was in a trio along with Michael Tait, and Kevin Max Smith.They called them selves dc Talk. Together the group had numerous Dove Awards, three Grammy Awards, two platinum albums, and two gold albums. Taking a break from dc Talk Toby, along with the others decided to pursue a solo carrer.

As it been mentioned they both together have five children. The hardest part of it all though, isn't taking care of all five at once. Its taking care of Moses's muscular dystrophy which was diagnosed two years ago. Moses requires constant care and his life expectancy only reaches to his early twenties. Though its a difficult task Toby says they are pulling together in a typical McKeehan way. Turning to God and praying. Toby and his wife both agree that right now they both want to gives Moses as normal as a life as possible Quotes from Tobymac I think Christmas is about celebration and come on, on the inside everyone wants to dance.

I want my music to be everywhere, I want it to be heard. I want to give people an opportunity to enjoy my music, and maybe even hear about this beautiful truth that's in it.

I just pinch myself, because I think if there's anything I can be proud of, I've survived success, which I think is difficult these days. By: Taylor Stocks Truett being the oldest at the age four-teen was born September 4th 1998. some people who listen to Toby mac might recognize him as Tru-Dog. His name hes recieved from recording with his father. Following are Moses and Marlee who were adopted in 2002. Third is Leo who is now the age of eight born on November 2nd, 2004. Last but of course not least would be mister Judah who has just turned seven on March 24th Resources
