"This is NOT just another band here to entertain! Glen Clark and The Family is a true living miracle. God is using a severely handicapped son to not only change Glen's life but to then build this band! Turning devastating hardship to the miraculous!"

Band Bio:
Glen Clark & The Family Called to the ministry but rejected by the church, this left me on a journey as a singer/songwriter starting a club scene known for it’s spawning of many death metal bands that is now 150,000 to 200,000 people partying on weekends in Ybor City, Florida. A drastic conversion experience would bring me from Satan worship music back to Jesus. Then I was told I would have to decide whether my newborn son would live or die. I cried to God asking him to keep my son alive and I would do whatever He said the rest of my life. This began a walk of obedience. My son had Crouzons Syndrome. This is where soft spots in the head grow together before the child is born. A series of surgeries would open up the skull to make room for the brain to grow. They built new eye orbits and would use rib bones for cheek bone and drill holes where his ear canals were supposed to be, Then take skin grafts from legs and build new ear canals and bone and muscle from inside head to build new ear drums. Through all these surgeries and 5 years of therapy, 5 days a week teaching Beau to interpret vibrations from a bone oscillator so that when he got his new ears ( man made), he would be able to talk. Through this, God made radical changes in my life. I began to play music for the handicapped, wrote a song that would become a video that would become a video album, then nominated for a Dove Award. But feeling a call to the handicapped, broken, drug addicts, homeless and poor, I chose to leave CCM for richer pastures in the streets. Then for 15 years traveling U.S. to the darkest and dirtiest places to bring a message of Hope, God created a ministry. Five years ago, Beau had to have a major surgery. This would require 3 months recovery as they would break his face and mount a “halo” to his head and then we would screw his face forward til it got in the right position. God said to get him a keyboard to give him something to look forward to and to help him through surgery. He taught himself to play, then he taught himself my songs. And to make a long story short, this tremendously handicapped child that doctors said to let die for he would only live to a year old and then only to be a vegetable. At 13 years old, Beau built the band you are about to listen to. He wanted to play music with his Daddy, so he taught his brothers and sisters to play and sing. A true miracle. So, I did not argue with God and here they are 5 years later. You can hear more of our story at I pray you enjoy this true miracle of God. I am so blessed to have been a part of it. Thank You, Jesus. Thank you, Beau
