History

Miller was born, Marie Graciela Miller,[2] on April 9,[3] 1989, in Dallas, Texas, to Joseph and Roxanne Miller (née, Polk),[4] and she grew up for the first nine years of her life in California before finally relocating to the Shenandoah Valley area of Virginia, around the town of Washington, Virginia more precisely Huntly, Virginia,[5] while she began singing at the age of 7.[6][7] She is the third of 10 children. Miller was reared in the Roman Catholic faith at St. Peter Mission in Washington, Virginia.[7] She grew up an avid reader and was inspired as a songwriter by the works of Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Leo Tolstoy, C. S. Lewis, and J. R. R. Tolkien. At the age of 12 she joined her family band, playing festivals and trading off lead and harmony vocals in duets with her sister.[1]

Marie plays mandolin, guitar, piano and bouzouki[8] and says her music simply represents the stories of her everyday life.[citation needed] Her self-titled indie debut EP was released in 2005 which labeled her as "one of the best independent artists that you should know about".[citation needed] Christianity Today's Top 10 CDs included the EP in their Top 10 CDs. The success of her EP led to Curb Records signing Miller in September 2006.[9] Miller released the song "Cold" in January 2007 which was picked up on Contemporary Christian music radio stations in the United States. The song hit the Contemporary Christian charts in 2007 and it remained on the charts for four months.[10]

She released the single "You're Not Alone" on January 8, 2013.[11] It was "written as a battle cry for a friend who was going through a really tough time, and he felt incredibly alone. I wanted to fight for him and somehow take away his loneliness".[citation needed]

Marie's single debuted inside the top 50 of iTunes' Top Singer/Songwriter Songs chart.[citation needed] On May 5, 2014, James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd danced to Miller's "6'2" on ABC's Dancing with the Stars.[12]

Performing for Pope Francis

On September 26, 2015 Miller performed for Pope Francis at the Festival of Families in Philadelphia, PA for an audience of 750,000.[13] The performance aired live on television networks Fox News and CNN.[14]
