Born in Wallasey, by the City of Liverpool, married to Garry with 4 children, Chris has been in ministry as a Contemporary Christian artist since 1982. She became a Christian at the age of 21 and since then has toured the UK and overseas, giving concerts and talks, sharing the Good News of the Gospel. Her desire to serve stemming from the grace and love of God she found in her relationship with a loving Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Since the 80's Chris has ministered in all types of situations desiring to go wherever God calls. She is known, along with husband Garry, for their pioneering work in contemporary Christian music in the 80's and 90's with the Gospel duo /band CHRIS & GARRY, from which the much acclaimed album ICE BREAKING arose which is still appreciated today. She's worked along side many well known preachers such as Steve Chalk, Tony Campolo, and with organisations like YWAM, SPRING HARVEST, BYFC, MAF, given concerts and appeared on BBC TV and radio, worked on the projects of others and written worship, contemporary, and children's songs and also worked with many creative musicians. and in the late 90's with Mission Aviation fellowship, gave her voice as a love offering to their work. She then became worship pastor over a church, along with husband Garry, an experienced music director and musician, and worked with two other churches developing their music for 2 years but still maintaining her concerts schedule and worship concerts with her husband and children, who are gifted musicians. She also has hosted her own radio show, for contemporary Christian music on Flame FM for several years. Just recently she has also begun a degree in Theology with the desire to grow as an expository speaker.

Now sees the release of Chris's newest recording 'Whispers of His Grace', destined for the needy and hurting world. She is managed from the USA, www.tameyourtongue and deals personally in the UK/Europe…She is patron to 3 charities for the homeless/needy. One in the UK, The Charles Thompson Mission, part of the Liverpool City Mission, one in USA, Helping Hands, Pennsylvania, and one in Romania, Pater Noster, these will all receive support from album sales/concerts. She also has created a charity... The Whispers Foundation..... so that persons may serve abroad within the charities she supports, when she does concerts/visits in those countries.

Her voice has been described as 'outstanding' (Paul Davis, NCM) and 'a voice that inspires angels' (Ken Eaves, Road Pastor, UK Team) but her consuming heart mission is to spread the Gospel and reach a needy world with the love of God and compassion of Christ.

CD Review by Paul Davis...


Good news, Chris Mercer's heart-warming, contemporary balladeering is crisp and fresh! 'Adult-Contemporary' is at the genre-core and the combination of Chris with producer, Sammy Horner is powerful. If you like to be stunned by modern, self-penned songs and performances that edify, Chris will oblige! Moving and motivating stuff, her voice is outstanding and this album shows what she can do. Masterfully produced in Scotland for UK, Europe and USA release, 'Whispers of His Grace' is full of song-thoughts and declarations covering all manner of subjects. Most are instantly challenging, cutting and catchy. Sammy also is Chris's duettist on a great modern country ditty entitled 'Jesus & You'. 'Distant Time' features impressive pedal steel guitar played by Phil Madeira of Nashville fame.
