(Los Angeles, CA) June 14, 2010 – Powerhouse vocalist, social activist & founder of the Home Foundation to rescue victims of human trafficking, working mom, entrepreneur and four-time GMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Natalie Grant will be releasing her eighth album, Love Revolution, on Curb Records on August 24, 2010. Please visit http://www.nataliegrant.com for more information.
Love Revolution features her recently released single, “Greatness of our God,” which is currently at #24 on AC radio charts and climbing, quickly proving to be one of her most impactful songs yet.
Throughout the world, Grant is known for her breathtaking vocal abilities, her heart-gripping lyrics, charismatic performances and fearless work to help victims of human trafficking. As host of the recent 2010, 41st Annual GMA Dove Awards, Grant performed the powerful song, “Human,” from her upcoming project, a duet with American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks, who co-wrote the song with Jason Ingram and Dan Muckula.
Grant is also thrilled to announce her latest and greatest “revolution” – her second pregnancy with husband/producer Bernie Herms. This will be the Grant’s third child, following the birth of the couple’s twins Bella & Gracie in 2007.
With a growing passion to use her worldwide platform to help young women, largely due to her heart for her own daughters, Grant is not only passionate about ending human trafficking, but puts her own feet and hands to work supporting this cause. In 2005, Grant created The Home Foundation to raise awareness and financial support and since then, it has grown considerably, now with a dedicated staff & numerous volunteer workers. Focusing on restoration, The Home Foundation now works in over 6 countries, partnering with those actively involved in rescue and helps to provide shelters of hope & freedom. Natalie’s desire to motivate a heart for justice in the next generation is also being realized through the foundation’s college internship program, in which students are sent for 4 to 8-week internships, equipping them to make this effort their life’s work.
Along with her single charting at AC radio, fans will have a chance this summer to get up close and personal with Natalie Grant through her national radio contest, “Natalie Grant’s Summer Staycation,” in which 10 selected radio listeners who share the best ideas for a summer stay-at-home “vacation on a budget,” will chat with Grant by phone and will win a signed acoustic guitar and an autographed copy of her new CD, Love Revolution; 30 runners-up will also win a signed copy of Love Revolution.
Over the past four years, Grant has gained prominence as a major contemporary Christian singer and songwriter, breaking out in a powerful way with her signature song, “Held.” She was awarded the Gospel Music Association’s Female Vocalist of the Year in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. Since 2001, she has released four albums entitled, “Stronger” (2001), “Deeper” (2003), “Awaken” (2005) and “Relentless” (2008).
After finishing the “Make it Matter Tour” with Chris Sligh and Meredith Andrews, Natalie most recently completed a 30 date tour with Jeremy Camp and just wrapped the initial leg of the nationwide “LOVE REVOLUTION” tour with Britt Nicole & Phil Stacey.
