Stories, testimonies, pictures, and videos from the legendary Mylon and Broken Heart days!
“Because I'd been in the habit of sleeping all day and partying all night, one of my first challenges was turning my days and nights around. I explained to my pastor that I needed something to do during the day because all my old friends were drug addicts and night people. He solved the problem by entrusting me with a new responsibility. He informed me that because of my previous leadership skills, he was promoting me to "head of the head." It was his way of saying he had given me the job of church janitor!”
“I was so amazed about my new life that I started telling everybody about it and soon led some of my old musician friends to the Lord. I also met some new friends who were musicians at a Bible study I was attending. In our free time we started doing what all musicians do: jamming. But this time we did it in a whole new way. We not only played music, we fasted, prayed and studied Gods Word together. Over time, our little jam sessions/prayer times produced what would later become the Christian rock band, Mylon and Broken Heart.
My pastor did his part to help us along. He wisely allowed several of the musicians who had committed their lives to the Lord become church janitors also. We all learned some valuable lessons pushing lawn mowers, mops, and brooms, and the ex-rockers/janitors club soon it became a very powerful ministry called Broken Heart Ministries.”
“In just the first year of services in the church gym and around the city of Atlanta, we led almost 1800 young people to the Lord.”
“Over the next 15 years we eventually headlined almost every major contemporary Christian festival in the world. We also won a Grammy and four Dove awards.”
“Mylon & Broken Heart helped me in my new found faith in JESUS CHRIST, thank you...back in 1984.”
“I'm SO happy to have found this music. Mylon & Broken Heart were instrumental in saving my life, giving me hope, many years ago when life felt broken. Today I am a nurse and help other people find hope. Thank you!”
“Mylon Le Fevre is so Awesome. His entire band is... They are always so happy when they were on stage, you could tell that THEY MEANT WHAT THEY WERE SINGING ABOUT.... THESE GUYS LOVE JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
“I got saved because of a sermon my Dad preached when I was 5 years old. However, I STAYED a Christian through elementary, middle and high school all because I listened to Mylon and Broken Heart, non-stop. I can't express how much Mylon's ministry strengthened my faith. It was cool to be a Christian because no one, in my eyes, was cooler than Mylon.”
“You helped lead me to the Lord when I was in high school with your music. I can never thank you enough.”
“Mylon came to Winston-Salem, NC some years ago to do a concert. I was a DJ at a local Christian radio station that co-sponsored the event. Another DJ at our station was scheduled to be in the hospital at that same time. She was very disappointed to miss the concert because Mylon Le Fevre was one of her favorite Christian artists. She had never met him or been to one of his concerts, and she was looking forward to this opportunity. I decided to notify Mylon and suggest that he might call or send a message to her hospital room. He did much more than that. After the concert, he visited her in the hospital. She was thrilled!”
“Huge influence on me as a songwriter and singer in Atlanta in the early 1970's. Really helped me see that the love of Jesus was attainable, that we were worthy and that we didn't have to be perfect - just forgiven. I've gone on to write Gospel songs and sing in an incredible choir in Nashville - but - Mylon - and Jesus - was always on my mind. God bless.”
“My fondest memory of Mylon was during the Sheep in Wolves Clothing tour (also at Anderson). I had been in the process of back sliding when they announced tickets on sale for that show, and I just HAD to see Mylon, so I bought two tickets. Well, I had sunk pretty low by the time the concert rolled around, I had almost forgotten about it in fact, when the day of the show I came across the tickets(can you say Holy Spirit?). I had nobody to take, so I asked a female friend of mine to go with me(a stripper friend of mine actually). Well, to make a long story short, the altar call comes, and I am under some HEAVY conviction, so I get up and go to the back of the auditorium where we were asked to go in answer to the call. I turn around, and there is my friend following me, crying her eyes out. I closed my eyes, and prayed: "God, I cant do this! I am trying to get right with you, how can I lead her to you??". When I opened my eyes, there stood Mylon. He just turned to me and said "Son, God told me you could use a hand here" and he took over and led my friend to the Lord, while I was getting right with God myself.”
“I got born again at a Mylon Le Fevre and Broken Hearts Concert in Findlay, Ohio back in 1985...I then volunteered and helped them set up for a concert in Mansfield Ohio later that year I think..I went off to college and hooked up with a guitar player and we played More for a college concert at Ohio State Univ. His music not only changed my life, it drew me into a deeper relationship with the Lord.. I do wish though that he and broken heart would do one reunion tour..The music isn't the same anymore..Or maybe I am just older, but it seemed that the heart of the Lord was with the group..The spirit of the Lord moved through them in a mighty way...Oh yes today I am a minister for the Lord, still on fire for Christ.”
Jeff from St. Louis, Missouri
“My first ever Christian rock concert was the taping of the Sheep In Wolves Cloghing video at Heritage USA. I was against Christian rock until I attended this concert and bought the tape. I was changed from that day forward. I loved Mylon's energy, encouragement, and heart-felt call to salvation delivered at every concert.”
Ray from Mobile, Alabama
“I was a sheltered preacher's kid and thought you could never be that cool and actually be a Christian. Mylon taught me that I could be myself, long hair and all, and still love Jesus. Don't get me wrong I was not a rebellious kid I just thought that you had to look a certain way and have a 25pd bible to be a Christian. Then when I would go to Mylon's concerts I could just feel the love of a Living God. That is what being a Christian is all about. I wanted to know Jesus. So I asked Him into my heart at Mylon's concert in Ft. Myers, Fl in 1988. Thank you Mylon for all the times I know you were tired and felt like stopping. You kept going and because of your sacrifice I found the Lord and my life has never been the same.
Of all of the Mylon and Broken Heart songs recorded...I feel the presence of the Lord every time I hear More. Still, after all these years it ushers in the Glory of our God.”
Dwayne from Arkansas
“The last time I saw Mylon & Broken Heart was at Six Flags In Texas just before they ended the group.It was the first time I heard the song "Secret Place" and it was like everything all around the park stopped and it was totally focused on worshipping God. It will be something I'll will remember for the rest of my life!”
Jeff from St. Louis
“I gave my life to Christ at a Mylon Le Fevre concert at Atlanta Fest in Six Flags Georgia and went on to be a member of a contemporary Christian band and covered some of Mylon's songs, but mainly performed originals... ministering to youth in Churches and various youth related functions throughout the Southeast.
The presence of God was tangible at that concert back in the early 90s and I remember looking across a crowd of over 10 thousand people and seeing their hands raised toward heaven... then hearing God call me to him.
Thanks Mylon and Broken Heart for your ministry. ”
