An Evening with Amy Grant
Amy Grant's career spans over 30 years and stretches from her roots in gospel into her experience as an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality and philanthropist. Grant is beloved for both her Contemporary Christian music and mainstream hits like “Baby Baby,” “Every Heartbeat,” “That’s What Love is For,” “I Will Remember You,” “Lead Me On,” “El Shaddai,” and more. She has sold more than 30 million albums, including one five-time Platinum album, one triple Platinum and one double Platinum album, as well as six platinum and four Gold albums. She has won six GRAMMY® Awards and 26 GMA Dove Awards, including four Artist of the Year honors. Out of her 10 Top 40 pop singles, six have become No. 1 hits, including “Baby, Baby” and “Every Heartbeat.”
Grant was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2003, and is one of only two Christian artists to be awarded a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame. Conventional wisdom has it that Grant put Contemporary Christian Music on the map becoming the first Contemporary Christian artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit No. 1 on the Pop charts, and the first to perform at the GRAMMY® Awards. With that, her legacy as one of the most influential artists of the past couple of decades is assured.
Her most recent projects have indulged Grant’s love of community. In 2013, she released How Mercy Looks From Here, a landmark album that featured collaborations with heroes such as James Taylor and Carole King as well as Sheryl Crow, Eric Paslay, Will Hoge and stepdaughter Jenny Gill. The project became her 16th No. 1 album in the Christian genre. Grant’s newest album, Be Still And Know…Hymns & Faith, is a collection of classic songs that have buoyed her faith since childhood and helped lay the foundation for her creative journey. This latest group of songs occupies a special place in a career filled with great memories and incredible music. Grant has always found a way to share her life through her music, and in the process has become not only the best-selling Christian music artist of all time but also one of the most celebrated artists in the pop music industry.
