How often do you meet twins who have the same talent, vision and ministry giftings? The Chrisagis Brothers are internationally-known Christian music artists, who annually present a Legends Concert to honor pioneers of Christian music such as Russ Taff, Michael English, Rambo McGuire, Dino, and many more.

Brian and Shawn’s support of artists across Christian music genres has increased their notability in the Southern gospel arena as well, with Christmas concerts featuring Adam Crabb, Russ Taff, Angela Primm, Bonnie Keen, and the Blackwoods.

The Chrisagis Brothers have a strong emphasis on family in their ministry and one reason for this is their heritage. “We are Italian and Greek, so family has always played an important part of our lives,” says Shawn.

“When we were born, we were born with life-threatening allergies and the doctors said we would never live past the age of one year old. We were dying for seven years of our lives and could not go outside because we were allergic to the sun. We couldn’t eat anything but soybean milk, sardines, rice-cakes, and peanut butter.

Shawn recalls, “Through the love of our strong family, the three generations who lived in one home, including our Mom, Dad, and our Grandparents and our brother Anthony, we twins survived the odds because of love and faith.

“Our Mom always said that the acronym of ‘FAMILY’ stood for Forget About Me, I Love You. Our family lived that daily and at seven years old we were healed,” continues Shawn. “Our Mom became born again and found out how to break the curse of sickness, death and disease in our home in the name of Jesus. When she did that, we were instantly healed.”

The twins’ strong faith is proclaimed nightly in their onstage appearances.

The Brothers have gotten to be well loved and respected by top legends in CCM and Southern Gospel Music. They have two explosive Christmas Concerts starting this month.

Nov. 26 at 6:30 p.m., at the Faith Fellowship Church, in Bellaire, Ohio, the Chrisagis Brothers bring in the season with their “Wise Men Still Seek Him” concert, featuring two dynamic men from the Gaither Homecomings. Seven-time Grammy and 18-time

O’Neill, who the Brothers have known and worked with for the last 27 years. The Conference will feature Angela Primm and Nancy Stafford from Matlock tv series fame. Plus, they will be going to the Holy Land in April for a 10-day ministry tour.

Chrisagis Brothers: Winning The World By Any Means

Written by Staff on January 6, 2015 – 2:27 pm -

Chrisagis Brothers

Chrisagis Brothers

Once in a while you happen upon an artist that completely defies genre definition. If you hear a clip of the Chrisagis Brothers on You Tube, you might consider that they are Contemporary. Someone else might say they are Christian Comedians. Some others might qualify them as Children’s Entertainers. One listen to the recent “Lovin’ Out Loud” with the boogie-woogie piano and you might think they are more of the Country/Southern side of the spectrum. What is undeniable is that the Chrisagis Brothers and their ministry team are singing their message of Christ’s love for the world to hear, regardless of the label they might be given.

CB one oneBrian and Shawn Chrisagis are identical twins who began singing at the age of 16. “I was so shy that I passed out and then I hit my eye on the doorknob in the bathroom because I was that nervous to sing,” says Shawn. “I was bleeding everywhere but once I recovered and got prayed over the show had to go on, so I sang with my brothers with a patch over my eye from the bleeding. How embarrassing!” From singing with their brother while their Mother preached, the twins went on to using puppets on a Children’s television program. After winning awards for their programs, Brian and Shawn began recording original music that ranges from Christian Pop to Country/Inspirational/Worship.

The musical influences of the brothers span from Farrell and Farrell, Russ Taff and Larnelle Harris to The Beatles, The Judds and Bon Jovi. They have used these influences to create their own sound, with a message that touches the heart of God and His people.

CB one two“We want everyone who comes to our concerts to know that Jesus loves them and that they are special,” says Brian. “The message is: ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.” There is no sin too bad that it can’t be forgiven and we are all sinners saved by grace who need a Savior. The concerts we do never talk down to folks but stir them up with a roller coaster of emotions; like laughing, singing, crying and being moved to receive when we do altar calls. We always end the night with people praying the prayer of salvation. People really are touched and leave the concerts different from how they came.” Read more »
