Tough to describe and tougher to classify, Gibson's a white guy who sounds like Stevie Wonder, and a songwriter who seems to effortlessly just pour out songs that are bursting with a mission of justice and ministry and a singer with freestyle vocals skills comparable with the likes of Ella Fitzgerald. Jon, who pioneered Christian rap, racked up 22 Top 5 Hits, 9 of which rose to number 1 on the C.C.M. Billboard charts. Jon’s album Forever Friends was voted the 1992 C.C.M. "Album of The Year" and his album Jesus loves Ya was featured in TIME/LIFE's "100 Greatest Albums In Christian Music". His song Jesus Loves Ya still holds the record for the longest playing single at number 1 in Christian Music history.
