ForeFront Records is a contemporary Christian music and Christian rock record label founded in 1987 by Dan R. Brock, Eddie DeGarmo, Dana Key, and Ron W. Griffin. It was purchased by EMI in 1996 from then owners Dan R. Brock and Eddie DeGarmo and is now part of the EMI Christian Music Group (now known as the Capitol Christian Music Group.)


In 1998, ForeFront released a two-CD compilation to celebrate their 10th Anniversary. The album was titled Ten: The Birthday Album and featured songs from several of their artists at the time. Some of the songs were remakes of older songs done by new bands.
