Powerhouse singer/songwriter Natalie Grant has stepped into the new year with the passion and purpose that has made her one of the most respected and sought-after female vocalists in Christian music.
Having given birth to a healthy baby girl (Sadie Rose) on December 17th, Natalie jumped right back into juggling her duties as “mommy,” “wife,” and “nationally acclaimed recording artist.”
Grant started the new year with the release of a new single, “Your Great Name,” from her most recent album, Love Revolution (Curb Records). Within weeks, the song that has been sweeping through churches nationwide has begun soaring up the radio charts, gaining airplay in major markets across the country. “Your Great Name” is currently at #23 on Christian AC radio, and is the #4 Most Added song in the format.
Natalie Grant is also excited for the premiere of her first motion picture role, in a film titled Decision. After first hearing that Natalie would be unable to take the role because she was pregnant, LA-based production Nasser Entertainment made script changes to accommodate her pregnancy.
Filmed during her ninth month of pregnancy, Natalie plays Ilene Connors, a recent widow who must cope with financial straits and an unruly son after her husband dies in an at-fault auto accident. The film offers a picture of spiritual and emotional healing for the young boy, who is sent to live with the estranged father of Natalie’s character, where he learns major life lessons.
Of Natalie’s compelling performance, director Tom Makowski (What Would Jesus Do?, Discovery Channel, MTV) noted that she “is one of the rare artists who has an innate ability to immediately grasp the inner voice of a character and convey that emotion on screen.” Film producer Kevan Otto adds “the Lord has given her the unique ability to reach people—in her music and, now, on film.” Decision is set for an exclusive screening this Spring, followed by a national release by the end of the year.
Finally, Natalie Grant is preparing for her first major tour of the new year—the Lovewell Live Tour with MercyMe and Brandon Heath. Beginning in early April, the tour with will visit over 20 cities before wrapping in mid-May.
Natalie experienced the highest-selling debut of her career when her newest album, Love Revolution, hit stores in August of 2010.
