Conventional wisdom has it that Amy Grant put Contemporary Christian music on the map. She surely did that, achieving such breakthroughs as being the first Contemporary Christian artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit #1 pop and the first to perform at the Grammys. Yet perhaps her greatest accomplishment was to open the door for a flood of other artists in pop as well as rock to sing about faith and soul and family and still grasp stardom. With that, her legacy as one of the most influential artists of the past couple of decades is assured.
So when it comes time to “Celebrate What Matters” what matters to a music icon? People. “I’m always trying to connect with people,” Amy says. “I want to connect people to each other, the things they believe in, the love of God, forgiveness, and things that are active and alive.”
