Headlining: Natalie Grant
Seven-time Grammy nominated Natalie Grant is known for her powerful and soaring vocals, heart-gripping lyrics and passionate performances, and has remained one of the top-selling Christian & Gospel artists since her 2005 breakout RIAA Gold certified album, “Awaken.” She has since gone on to have over 3 million in career sales. The Gospel Music Association has named her Female Vocalist of the Year 5 times and she has had multiple number 1’s on the Billboard singles and albums charts, including her most recent record titled, “Be One.”
More than just music and awards, Grant has built a relationship with her fan base on a personal level that goes well beyond the music. Regarded as real, authentic and transparent, that connection with people puts Grant at the top of the industry with fan engagement across all social media platforms.
Beyond her music career, Natalie is the author of several books, including the Fall 2016 release, Finding Your Voice, and the 2016 tween book series titled “Glimmer Girls.” Her fashion and jewelry line, NG by Natalie Grant, has seen great success, and most importantly she has used her platform to be an outspoken advocate for victims of human trafficking since 2005. She co-founded Hope for Justice International, which identifies and rescues victims of trafficking and then provides them with complete restorative care. The organization now has 6 offices spanning 4 countries and 3 continents.
Though she is a Seattle native, Natalie makes her home in Nashville, TN with her husband, producer/songwriter Bernie Herms and their three children: twins Grace and Bella, and their youngest, Sadie.
