Mac Powell, former frontman of the four-time GRAMMY Award-winning band Third Day, remembers how God healed his wife Aimee from brain aneurysm and a stroke. Two years ago in November, after a 14-day hospital stay, Aimee was able to come home for Christmas. Six weeks after Aimee woke up from her stroke, Mac has nothing but praises to God for such a miraculous intervention.
Mac remembers, "2 years ago today. That's when my beautiful wife Aimee had a brain aneurysm and stroke around 5am. It took a while for the doctors to figure out what was going on with her. And by the time they did we had to rush to another hospital to have a procedure done on her brain. So many of you prayed, visited, gave gifts and meals and we were overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity. With God's grace and mercy, Aimee is doing very well today. I'm so thankful for her and what she means to our family. I love her so much. Please join me in praising God for the life of my love- an AMAZING mama and friend- Aimee."
Mac Powell has recently released his solo Christian full-length album, "New Creation," on his new label home Capitol Christian Music Group.
"After the Third Day farewell tour, I took some time to pursue being an independent artist, and I think it was really helpful in getting me to this moment," shares Mac Powell. "I truly can say that I'm not only excited about announcing my debut solo Christian album, but I am inspired and grateful to be re-connecting with my friends at radio and fans on the road these last few months. I believe this collection of songs have come from God, and I can't wait to hear stories of how they connect with and help people through the days we're in living in.
Powell, originally from Alabama, moved to Atlanta, GA as a sophomore in high school where he would soon co-found the Christian rock band Third Day. Throughout their nearly three-decade career, the band sold over 10 million albums, earned four Grammy Awards, one American Music Award, 24 Dove Awards, and was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. Since Third Day's farewell tour in 2018 Mac released a country album "Back Again" under the banner "Mac Powell & The Family Reunion" and has finished his debut solo Christian album set for release on October 15th. Mac is on staff at Church of the Apostles in Atlanta, GA where he lives with his wife Aimee and their five children.
