Michael O’Brien

Singer, Songwriter, Worship Leader

Michael O’Brien is now celebrating 28 years in full-time ministry. In the early 90s, he signed a record deal with Benson Records. He garnered eight number-one singles on the radio. Some of those singles (“If Ever I Forget” and “Nothin’s Gonna Turn Me Around”) were during his solo career, but several (“When God Made You,” “Rescue,” and “Psalm 40”) were with the group Newsong during his 7-year tenure as their lead singer.

Today, Michael enjoys every opportunity to lead worship and perform concerts in churches and conferences all over the United States. He is a regular worship leader at “The Cove” for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and leads worship at Answers in Genesis’ conferences for women and pastors. He also works with the American Association of Christian Counseling and Fresh-Grounded Faith conferences.

He has been married to his wife, Heidi, for 33 years and has four children, two grandchildren, and one grandchild on the way. “I’m thankful to the Lord for every opportunity to lead God’s people in worship to the Lord. It is one of my greatest privileges and honors.”
