Amy Grant raises funds for charity


Recently multi-platinum and Grammy Award winning artist Amy Grant welcomed nearly 600 of her biggest fans to enjoy a weekend with her in Tennessee. All of the activites were enjoyed by fans who donated funds to participate in the event.

Known for her philanthropic heart, Grant spotlighted several charities throughout the weekend, includding the Nashville Rescue Mission, The Bridge Ministry, Thistle Farms, HOPEClinic For Women, Blood:Water Mission, With This Ring (Clean Water Wells) and more. All the net proceeds, which totalled over $50,000 went to Amy's Helping Hands Foundation which was then dispersed the among the various organizations.

The event kicked off Friday night with an Amy Grant and band 'by request' concert, followed by a Saturday morning session to hear Grant and popular author Donald Miller share about the beauty of our individual and collective stories.

Saturday afternoon the gates to her farm opened and fans spent the afternoon riding hot air balloons, skeet shooting, playing picnic games, painting, chatting with Grant and listening to members of Grant's band perform cover tunes... all while enjoying the beautiful Tennessee countryside. That evening a BBQ dinner was served followed by a songwriter in the round concert with Grant, Don Schlitz, Luke Laird, Scat Springs and Brooks Parker. A late night movie on an outdoor inflatable screen was shown for the night owls, with the weekend closing out Sunday morning with a worship service/devotional led by Grant.

Grant will make a quick trip to Europe next week for a shows in The Netherlands, Belfast and London. Throughout the summer and fall she will make appearances at Women of Faith events as well as various spot dates. Grant is currently working on a new studio project scheduled to release in 2013. For all things Amy Grant please visit her website, join her Amy Grant Facebook, or follow her on Twitter.

Amy Grant’s career spans over 25 years and stretches from her roots in gospel into an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality and philanthropist. Grant has sold more than 30 million albums, including 1 Quintuple Platinum album, 1 Triple Platinum and 1 Double Platinum album, as well as additional 6 Platinum and 4 Gold albums. She has won six GRAMMY® Awards in multiple categories, beginning with the platinum selling Age to Age in 1982, and 25 GMA Dove Awards, including four-time Artist of the Year awards.
