Bart Millard is an American singer and songwriter best known as the lead member of the Christian music band ‘MercyMe’.

Till date, the singer-songwriter has recorded numerous albums that have achieved either gold or platinum status. Some of the band’s songs like "I Can Only Imagine" and "Spoken For" are still listened to today with great enthusiasm. He received the title of Christianity Today’s ‘Best Male Vocalist’ of 2005.
