Musical Guest

Natalie Grant

“When we live the love of the Gospel out loud, a revolution will occur.”

A powerhouse vocalist, heart-gripping songwriter and charismatic performer, Grant returns to the music marketplace with an unshakable determination to remind us of the simple significance of love and the revolutionary power that it carries.

The potential reach of this message, and the impact that it can have, is staggering. As GMA Female Vocalist of the Year for four consecutive years (2006-2009) and the top-selling Adult Contemporary female solo artist in 2005, 2006 and 2008, Grant is among a select number of artists to have achieved a formidable foothold at mainstream media and radio. Her 2005 breakthrough album, Awaken, received RIAA Gold certification and its follow-up, Relentless, has experienced significant sales since its 2008 release.

But it is the message of the Gospel, and the revolutionary power of love it carries, that she waves as her banner and her hope.

Beyond her artistry, she declares this message as an outspoken advocate for victims of human trafficking. The Home Foundation, which Grant created in 2005, has raised over a quarter of a million dollars to fight the trafficking of women and children for the purpose of sexual exploitation.

She works to balance these endeavors with her greatest calling—as a wife, and mother of twin daughters, Grace and Isabella. Most recently, Grant—who was told that she could never bear children—announced that she and her husband are expecting their third miracle, a baby due on Christmas Day.
