The Christian Broadcasting Network’s (CBN) long-running news, commentary, and Christian ministry television show, The 700 Club, will feature singer/songwriter/survivor Benny DiChiara, in a powerful story of healing, survival, and a radical commitment to ministry.
DiChiara, the lead singer and songwriter for Baton Rouge, Louisiana-based Christian rock band Empowered, will be the subject of a powerful interview feature focusing on his faith and healing journey, including his recovery from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). After hundreds of people showered him in prayer, he encountered a miracle that led him out of the hospital and eventually to the top of the charts with his band and their latest EP, Three Days.
The interview feature will air on The 700 Club Wednesday, April 7, at 10 a.m. EST in multiple markets across the U.S. (check local listings). Viewers can also watch The 700 Club on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). To watch the entire show online, click here. To watch just the Benny DiChiara interview feature online, click here.
“I am incredibly humbled that God has allowed me to share my story on The 700 Club,” says DiChiara. “This program has reached thousands of people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. I pray that my testimony may reach someone who needs to hear it. I am beyond blessed!”
DiChiara and his band, Empowered, recently started 2021 right where they left off at the end of 2020—at the top of the charts. The band, which snagged the No. 1 spot twice in 2020 on IndieGospel.net’s Top 10 Video Chart, claimed two consecutive No. 1 music videos on the same chart to kick off 2021.
During the second week of January 2021, Empowered’s “Listen to the Children” music video hit No. 1 for the second time. The following week, the music video of the title track to the band’s critically acclaimed Three Days album took the top spot for the second time, while “Listen to the Children” remained on the chart at No. 6.
“It’s such an exciting way to start the new year,” says DiChiara. “God blessed us so richly last year. We feel honored that our music is still resonating with people, and we look forward to what’s still to come!”
