What Do We Do When Our Calling Suddenly Ends?
From garage band to Grammy-winning phenomenon, Audio Adrenaline played to packed stadiums, arenas, and festivals as Christian music rose in popularity. The founder and front man, Mark Stuart, believed he was living out God’s calling. Then his voice began to falter. Diagnosed with an incurable vocal disorder, Mark’s voice would never return to normal. Everything he had worked for and fought for was being taken away. Struggling to understand God’s plan, Mark no longer could sing songs of hope—he could barely speak at all.
With his life unraveled, Mark focused on serving the orphan and abandoned children of Haiti through the ministry the band had founded. After surviving the 2010 earthquake that devastated Haiti, Mark became the scratchy voice for struggling Haitians, drawing the world’s attention to their dire circumstances. And somewhere in the rubble, Mark found a new purpose.
Losing My Voice is the poignant and gripping story of one man seeking harmony, hope, and redemption—and realizing that being in tune with God’s call makes the best music of all.

“Sometimes it’s hard to understand why God takes things away. Mark losing his singing voice is one of those unanswerable questions. However, I’ve walked with Mark, from his final show in Hawaii to him bringing hope to the people of Haiti, and God has never let him go. Mark’s voice has never been more important.”
“I grew up singing background vocals and stage-managing for my sister, Rebecca St. James, and we did countless shows with Audio Adrenaline. I remember standing side stage with my mouth on the floor at their ingenuity, passion, and performance. Mark’s presence onstage truly inspired me. I’ve been fortunate to become close friends with Mark, and I have to say that what he’s done post–Audio Adrenaline has been even more impacting for me. Stories like his remind me of God’s relentless creativity in weaving together imperfect stories for greater redemption.”

“I have had the privilege of touring with Mark multiple times throughout the years. We’ve worked on records and written songs together, and I have had the honor of doing a lot of life with Mark. He is the genuine article. I believe he is truly a man after God’s own heart. He has held steadfast on that course no matter what storms life has thrown at him. He is full of wisdom, and I am thankful that he offers it up to all of us as we continue on our own journeys. His insight should serve us well.”
“Mark had one of those voices that made you feel something beyond the lyric. His voice’s brokenness and vulnerability gave it power, just like his testimony.”
“Mark’s story is like my story. We’re both underdogs. If you’re looking to be inspired, you’ll find plenty of nuggets in this book to keep your head up. I frickin’ guarantee it.”
