Apple iPhone 5 Confirmed!

iPhone 5 Features: Apple Announces New Phone, iPods. Good Morning America

If you've even walked by a computer today, I'm sure you've heard that the new iPhone was announced by Apple. They said, "We have updated every aspect of iPhone 5." A more powerful A6 processor will make the new phone twice as fast as the iPhone 4S. It also has a bumped-up audio system and an upgraded iSight camera.

If that's not enough, "iPhone 5's camera will have new better low-light capabilities and a panorama mode," Apple said.

As the proud owner of the iPhone 4s, which was the "cool kid in school" until this morning, I'm conflicted about the news!

What do you think, will you upgrade or buy the new iPhone 5?

I love you Amy Grant!  The first concert I went to was when you were alone with your guitar and we sat in folding chairs.  You had me hooked from that time on.  You were maybe 16 or 17 and I was maybe 14 or 15.  I've always thought you and I would be great friends growing up.  You have such a wonderful persona.  I've been to several of your concerts.  My favorites are when you are at Celebrity Theater in Phoenix, AZ.  I remember your daughter dressed up in her elegant Belle costume. She's adorable.  My blessings to you and your family. Keep on playing, you have lots of fans who love your style.

Oh man, my sister and I SO wanted to be Amy Grant... we had all her "tapes" and then eventually CDs... My Mom, sister, and I listened on all of our car trips and around the house... and in 1986, I was 8 years old as we were moving to Alaska driving through an icy mountain pass in Canada.  Our motorhome went off the road and crashed alongside a mountainside, where it remained stuck for hours and hours.  A male passerby offered to help my Mom, sister, and I get to the next town so we could stay warm and wait for my Dad and brother to get the motorhome towed.  We were scared to death to get into this man's van with carpet-lined walls... but did so by faith...  and low and behold what was playing on his tape deck??? AMY GRANT!!!!  We knew God was taking care of us, it was a moment I'll never forget... and he used the music of Amy to let us know we were going to be okay.  Smile

I remember as a child wanting to be like several people but as I got older I went through this fetish of wanting to have hair like Meg Ryan, and actually look good in that hair (as no one else can). I would try for years to get it right until I finally gave up and resolved to having un-cool long hair! I too was big into Amy Grant but I don't think I really wanted to be her. I did (like another listener) dream about being on Little House on the Prairie, but not be Laura Ingals, but be myself with today's knowledge (and money) and be her friend.

When I lived in San Antonio in 1988 I took my 10 year old daughter to see Amy in Austin and then again that year in San Antonio. We have always loved Amy's music and have followed her over the years. Now my daughter is sharing the same music with her daughters who are 11 and 8. We all love having this bond between us. They blessed me with a sweet gift of Amy's book Mosaic for Christmas two years ago. They even let me 'share' in the family concert Amy gave in Augusta last year. I live in the Phoenix area so my daughter called me and let me listen over the phone. God bless you Amy.

And thanks for your program. I've not long been a listener and it's so nice to be able to have you on in the background. It's a great way to catch up with the latest in Christian Music.

I have been listening to Amy Grant since 1984!  Every great memory I have as a child, teenager, young adult, married woman, mother is somehow connected to one of your songs.  I walked down the aile to  "double good to you" on my wedding day and played " I will be your friend" at my reception.  I love all your albums and relate so much to your lyrics. I love that you're honest and the first one to confess your faults.  Thank you so much for all your years of music and I am hoping that your best is yet to come.

Ps  I am insisting that my children have you on their ipods.

If you feel comfortable,please ask Amy this question. I have her Unguarded album and side one is on both sides of the album. No joke!!! Please ask her if she would be willing to buy my album since I'm really struggling financially and looking for work. I've loved Amy's music and have almost every album she's ever made. I've never wanted to be Amy since I'm a guy, but would love to see her in concert!
Thanks, Steve

Hi Kelli, Scott & Amy!

I had the pleasure of seeing Amy during her House of Love Tour, at Red Rocks here in Colorado.  I had purchased at T-shirt that I proudly wore afterward.  Someone who has know me for years asked me, "How did you get that picture of you on your t-shirt?  That is really cool." That so, made my day!
I, like Kelli, have been a huge fan of Amy's since I first heard her when I was in Jr. High. I'm not sure I wanted to be her but I remember wishing my car would break down near her ranch & she would be out riding her horses & take me to her house to use the phone...back in the day, we had no cell phones..lol! I have been a huge fan to this day.  
Amy has walked me through many hardships & many joys.  I played her music at my wedding & rocked my babies to the sound of her voice.
She helped me find my way back to Jesus, through some pretty dark times. Thank you for your truth, even when it hurts.  You are willing to say what needs to be said, even if it isn't confortable.
Thank you for speaking the truth in love.

A fellow lover of old quilts & horses,

Amy Grant was the first Christian artist we listened to.  When was a teen, I didn't know Christian music was anything other than hymns.  Then I bought "My Father's Eyes" and I haven't looked back! THANK YOU! I saw Amy Grant at the Colorado State Fair and of course after that, I dearly wanted to be Amy Grant!

Growing up I didn't want be her. I wanted her to be my best friend! She kind of was, as I listened to her all the time (especially when things were rough or scary) it was kind of like she was always around reminding me GOD was in control and loved me very much. Could you play some of her great songs? ? Please she is comming into the studio. My favorite was gods got angles watching over me!

I grew up going to Amy Grant concerts. She was great and her music ministered to me as a young teen!  My husband I even named our first daughter "Sharayah" after one of her songs on the "Unguarded" album. Anything she can share with us about that song?  Our family has a tradition of always playing Amy's "Christmas Album" on Christmas morning. It just wouldn't be the same without it.  Thanks Amy for all the great music!

I've always wanted to 'be' Rebecca St. James. I love how she has such a sensitive heart towards Jesus, and how she stands for purity. In today's society, where purity seems to be forgotten, it is nice to have a role model like Rebecca St. James who is encouraging others to live in purity of heart, soul, and mind.

I wanted to be Amy Grant! I had all the tapes (yes, tapes back then)... even a song book... memorized all the words... My mom would play the songs on the piano and I would sing. Father's Eyes, Fat Baby... Arms of Love is probably my all-time favorite. I would just play the tape and cry to that one... oh the love of the Father unveiled in the words of that song! I'm going home to see if I can find my tapes! Smile

A few years ago we were vacationing in Destin, FL and my husband went to play golf with his boss who was also in town.  When he came home he had this grin all over his face and he showed me his golf card - I thought maybe he had made a hole-in-one!  Missing the obvious, he pointed out that the card was signed, but I couldn't make out the signatures.  Then he showed me the picture of him, his boss, Vince Gill and Amy Grant!  I was so jealous!  He said she was beautiful, very sweet and a very good golfer.  I don't think he wanted to BE Amy but I'm pretty sure he wanted to be Vince Gill!  Smile

How funny!  I would totally 'geek' out too if I were going to meet Amy Grant, for goodness sake!  I saw her during one of her first concert tours (she was barefoot and sat on a stool with her guitar) -- I think she was with the Imperials when Russ Taft was their lead singer.  Great memories!  I also sang all of her songs ... Father's Eyes; YEP, TOTAL GEEK!

Growing up I loved Amy Grant.  However the song of hers that impacted my life the most was off her Baby Baby album called "Ask Me." It is about sexual child abuse.   I was like that frightened little girl and people didn't understand how I could go through what I went through and still have faith in God.  I said how could I have survived what I survived and NOT have faith in God.  He was there for me through everything even when my own mom didn't protect me.  

I was 15 when that album came out.   It was healing for me.  Then just last month I was listening to my MP3 player.  My husband had converted all my old CDs to MP3s for me.  When that song played I realized how much that song still ministers to me.

Please let her know that she has touched my life from the first song I heard from her, El Shaddai, back in the '80s until today, 25 years later. I am so glad I had her with me during some of the valleys in life especially. In my 20s, it was "Behind the Eyes" that I recall reaching out to me when I was anxious, depressed and felt so alone in life. Though I may never meet her until we're in heaven, I want her to know now how thankful and blessed I am for God giving her the gift of her voice and her songwriting. God bless you, Amy, and your extended family. Smile

I just want to say that Amy Grant was definitely my hero(ine) growing up. I always wanted to sing and until I was introduced to her music, I didn't know there was such a thing as Christian music outside of church. Thanks to Amy and one other musician, Carman, I grew up singing and writing, and still worship with my church choir and raise my praise whenever I can. Thanks!!!

I've liked Amy Grant since I first heard about her in Taiwan more than 10 years ago.  Yes I'm an immigrant and No I've never wanted to be any else.  I'm a big fan of God and his creation. I think he did a great job creating me.  Not to say I'm perfect but I'm happy to be me. =)

Growing up I wanted to be anyone but me.  Life was hard and anyone else was better than me.  In the late 80's God blessed me with a really good friend who took me as I was (I was a wreck). She sang in church and the first song I heard my friend sing was Angels Watching Over Me, by Amy Grant.  I got the tape and played that song over and over.  It really touched me and God spoke to me where I was.  Today, Praise God, I like being me.  I worked through the difficulties and found God to be awesome and mighty.  I like who I am and part of that is because of the songs Amy and my friend sang.

Hi, Scott and Kelli I was just listening to you on the radio and I too love Amy Grant. I am 21 and a total child of the 80's. So don't feel old Kelli. I love how you called Francesca "Frannie" my middle name is France and my whole family calls me Frannie. I feel like I can relate to her now. I am writing because I have been down lately. In May of last year my boyfriend of over three years and I, broke up. I miss him so much, he is my best friend. Our Anniversary would have been this month on the 25th. Could you please pray for me with my struggle of missing him. I love him dearly and want him to know I am very sorry for the wrong doings I have done against him. I love you both have a blessed week and stay safe.

I remember listening to Amy Grant when I was growing up. I especially remember 'Ask Me' off her CD 'Heart in Motion'. I tried to "disappear" too. I was 10 years old. I wondered "Where did He go in the middle"?

I always wanted to ask Amy Grant, "How do you know? How do you know there is a God up in Heavens"? I struggled for years.

When things were really tough I would listen to "Ask Me" over and over and it would help me hang in there. And I really wanted to ask Amy.

I don't know how or why I survived and returned to sanity, but I do know that I didn't give up. God did the rest.

Now I can say, "His mercy is bringing me life again!!" Now I know there is a God up in Heaven, and He is Good. I am 27 years old, have a little apartment and a cat, and a job that meets my financial needs. My life is better than I ever imagined it could be when I was a child. I am living my small miracle - I have healed from much and I'm moving onward, with the grace of God.

Thank you Amy Grant, for the song 'Ask Me'. These words gave me hope through very dark times.

Saved by Grace,
Karen

Smile There wasn't anyone special I wanted to be when I was growing up - I just wanted to sing. Amy Grant's first album was the first Christian album I was allowed to have.  I sang her song "Mimi's House" to my grandmother (changed the word Mimi to Mammaw") on her 80th birthday & was humbled by the joy it brought to her. I've sung many of Amy's songs over the years. It always seemed we were kindred spirits. I know we are Christian sisters, for sure.  She got me through some pretty rough patches with her music.  I didn't want to be her - I wanted to sing backup for her!!!  Smile  Mama Dee

I just called and spoke to someone at the station.  However, I grew up listening to Amy Grant. I loved every one of her songs. Always seemed to have a song that would make me smile or lift my spirits when I needed it. When I was pregnant I listened to her age to age album over and over. When my daughter was born and for a very long time I sang (or should I say tried to sing) Amy Grant to her.  I sang a song I have not heard on the radio or anywhere. I dont even remember the song title. But some of the words are 'when the weight of all my dreams are resting heavy on my head, and all the thoughtful words of help and hope have all been nicely said.... I think the song is called "All I ever have to be."  I sang that song to her because I felt, she would know - all she has to be is what God has made her, and she didnt have to conform or be what every one else wants her to be. The other day I was cleaning and I started singing the song and she looked at me (now 19) and started singing it and said that song always comforts her.  Anyhow. I just wanted to say, no matter your age Amy Grant will always be timeless, classic and amazing.  

God Bless. Smile

No questions, but a big thank you to Amy for her music and her faith. I have listened to Amy for 27 years and she has been one of my best friends. Through her music, she has shared my happiest and saddest times and reminded me that God is truly in control and cares for me. When I sit in the audience at her concerts, I usually cry as she takes the stage because it is like seeing a good friend after a long absence. I appreciate all she has done for contemporary Christian music!

July 1988, meet my now wife at a church youth camp.
We ended up in the same class (sign language) & she taught my how to sign Amy Grants "I Have Decided"
Jennifer my wife is deaf... Amy Grants music has helped me a rough teenage life (parents divorced, losing a house, and the passing of my Great Grandma)Her music ministered to me in my low times & also lead me to learn sign language, then I meet Jennifer. God truly works in wonderful ways.
Although things didnt last too long for us (she was 14 & lived in Vegas & I 17 lived in Phoenix) we did write to each other, Our paths crossed again in 1999 after my 1st marriage had ended, we have now been together for over 10years & happily married for 8. Thank you Amy for your music!
God Bless.

I love Amy Grant, she was the first christian artist I was introduced to, can't wait to hear the new song.."Arms of Love"..  I have traveled up to 8 hours to see her in concert, talked to her my first time at her farm back in the 80's.  She'll remember "chicken bones and the dogs".  Since then, went to several concerts and get to go talk to her back stage.....She has been a part of my life for so many years and I sing "Breath of Heaven" at Christmas every other year and this past year did it like she does, with an orchestra, an awesome experience, everytime I am asked to sing in church, I sing an Amy song....Thanks Amy for being there and recording music that affects the lives of so many people.. See ya in August in Tennessee!!  Smile

My 77 year old mom still owns her own alteration business in a small town in North Mississippi.  She has always been a fan of quartets and normally has no idea who we are speaking of when we speak of current Christian artists.  So imagine my surprise a few years ago when I was visiting her business shop and noticed an autographed picture of Amy Grant.  When I asked mom about the picture, she said she had done the alterations for Amy during her concert in Tupelo, MS.  I was shocked because I had never heard that story!  
Recently while visiting my mom, I was sharing this story with my son and others visiting mom... and mom shocked us even further.  She admitted she had also worked with Michael W Smith and Point of Grace at the same concert.  We were all speechless.  When I finally found my voice, I asked "mom, why haven't you ever told us this"?  She answered that she had no idea we knew these people because she had not known of them before the concert!  I'm astounded because we have been Amy Grant fans for almost 30 years and my mom is the one that got to meet her and attend her concert!!!
I want to tell Amy that my mom thought she was incredibly nice, polite and well mannered.  And, oh yes, mom also thought she has a beautiful voice!
Thank you, Amy, for introducing my mom, Bobbie Stephens, to contemporary Christian music!!

Living in His Presence,

I have always wanted to be, meet, and love God like Michael W. Smith. His worship moves my heart and the hearts of so many others. I probably have all of his songs, and a lot of them memorized. I've never seen him in concert, except for on a DVD, but he is still one of my greatest mentors. He taught me to love God with all I have. Thank you Michael.

I started listening to Amy Grant when I was 14 years old. I did not grow up in a Christian home so I knew nothing about Christian Music. I would babysit for a family who had a Amy Grant casset and that is where first heard her music. Everytime I would go to their house I would listen to the casset. I was able to go to a concert of hers with my youth group when she was in Springfield Mo back in the late 80's. I still love her music! I now have a family of my own and I love to sing to my kids as they are settling down for the night..one of their favorite songs is "Angels watching over me," it is a good memory for them as well as a great testiment of her lasting legacy in Christan music.

LOVE HER! My mom had a Christian bookstore in the 80's & she was just a part of our lives.  Someday i know God is gonna let me meet her. I played 'Sing your Praise to the Lord' as a recital piece. I sang 'Arms of Love' in church my mom sang more songs than i can count. 'Let me say Once More that i Love You' was sang @ my wedding. Like i said, family friend. The first time i saw her it was just her & her guitar. i was really young and so was she! She was real & thats what i loved about her then & thats what i love about her now!

Growing up, I was the youngest child. I had brothers who were much older than me, and I didn't have a dad. My brothers were the men in my life. I loved them, and I wanted to be just like them. Today, two of them are serving in Afghanistan and one is in the process of becoming a police officer. As always, I'm following in their footsteps and getting ready to serve my country and community as well. I'm a criminology student in college, preparing to be a police woman. If it weren't for my three wonderful brothers, I'm sure I would not be the woman I am today. God knows exactly how to turn ordinary people into heroes, and he knows whose life to put those heroes in. What a great gift!

Thank you for being a big part in shaping my younger years.  I've been listening to you since I was in the 2nd grade (pretty much since your first albun) and haven't stopped since.  Your songs have inspired me and helped me understand that other people really do struggle through the same things that I do.  

I don't think I've ever actually wanted to BE you, but you are the person that I would choose to hang out with for a day if I could pick anyone that I'd never actually met.  You seem to have amazing insights, and I think that it helps that your life hasn't been all peaches and roses- that's real life- just like the rest of us Smile.

Thanks for being you, and thank you so much for your inspiration.

I just got in my car to head home from work & I heard you talking about wanting to be Amy Grant.  It made me laugh & brought a very pleasant memory to mind.  When my now 30 year old son was about 8, his elementary school had a talent show and he lip sung an Amy Grant song. He was a small boy on a big stage and belted it out! She was his favorite! He gave no consideration that she was a female or that it was a Christian song being sung in a public school!

I love Amy Grant, she was the first christian artist I was introduced to, can't wait to hear the new recording of the song.."Arms of Love"..  I have traveled up to 8 hours to see her in concert, talked to her my first time at her farm back in the 80's.  She'll remember "chicken bones and the dogs".  Since then, went to several concerts and go to go talk to her....She has been a part of my life for so many years and I sing "Breath of Heaven" at Christmas every other year and this past year did it like she does, with an orchestra, an awesome experience....Thanks Amy for being there and recording music that affects the lives of so many people.. See ya in August in Tennessee!!  Smile

No questions, just gratefulness... my story is that when I first heard of Amy Grant(1987)I did not want to be her! I actually couldn't listen to her music or hear her name - I would change the station! I was a new Christian, my one and only child was just born, but I was going thru a divorce. During this time,I had read an article of how well her life was, happily married, doing great in her life,etc. I was not happy...hearing her music brought back bad memories. I know it was bitterness I was going thru and I am thankful that God pulled me out of that because it was Y E A R S later when I was able to listen to her music and I hear her name - I actually purchased one of her christmas cds about two years ago. I know it is silly but no, I didn't want to be her - I probably should have just to feel better and pretend life was great(lol)! Anyway, I know my woes were not her fault! ...If anything, I would just like to apologize...don't get me wrong,I never spoke bad about her I just couldn't listen to the music. Thankfully it is no longer the case! Praise God - He is good!!! =)

When I was in college back in the late 70's, Amy came and sang at my university. (Abilene Christian Univ) About that time was my dad's birthday, but I was broke and couldn't afford to get him anything. I wrote him a letter telling him how much I loved him and wrote out the lyrics to "My Father's Eyes". I told him that everyone told me how much I looked like him and that I had his eyes. He was such a godly man and he understood that I meant that spiritually as well as physically. He has gone on to be with the Lord, but that is a memory I will never forget. So thank you, Amy for giving me a special memory of my dad and for reminding me that I will be with him again someday.

I went back and forth between wanting to BE Amy and wanting to be her best friend...The first time I heard her she was the "warm up" act for another popular Christian band-Dogwood. It was just Amy and her guitar and one mic. I fell in love with her music and have every album she's ever recorded. I actually got to meet her one time at a Christian Artists seminar in Estes Park, CO and she signed my journal and actually chatted with me for awhile. My favorite song growning up was "All I ever Have to be is What You've Made Me". It gave me permission to be me. I am SO happy to hear she has a new CD coming out.

I am so glad to hear Amy Grant on the radio this evening!!I have wished for the last 4 years I could tell her how much she helped me thru a very painful time in my life. My husband of 26 years very suddenly left me for a much younger woman.  Almost on a whim--??--I bought Amy's CD "Rock of Ages" for the song "El Shaddai". But another song, "Carry You" soon began to minister to me in such a way that to this day when I hear the first notes...I relax & feel soothed in a way only God can. Thanks so much Amy for letting God use you in such a wonderful way. You will always be so special to me for that reason. :0)

I'm a 26 years old Christian from Brazil and Amy Grant doesn't know, but she was my favorite babysitter when I was a kid. My parents would put her video on and I'd sit quietly for hours!(and I didn't even speak english back then haha) I have all of her cds, her lyrics have blessed me through life and a few years ago I attended one of her christmas concerts while I was in Canada. Great experience. Ask her if she has any plans of visiting Brazil in the future. God bless you all Wink

I've been a fan of Amy Grant since the early 80's - hers was the first Christian music I ever listened to.  I remember seeing her in concert with this wonderful unknown guy named Michael W. Smith in Concord, CA.  It was a glorious night!  But my very favorite Amy memory is from a concert at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, CA just a few years ago.  Amy shared the story of her river baptism with her husband, Vince, and her youngest daughter and spoke to my heart with her story of God's REDEEMING love.  I'm so glad Amy continues to sing and to record and to tour - she has "raised" a generation of Christians with her music and God has used her mightily even through or especially through her trials.  Thank you Amy for continuing to trust the Lord through it all and for allowing yourself to be used so mightily by Him.
In God's Grace,
Debbie

I have been an Amy fan since I was 16. Her Unguarded album was played in my car tape player till it about melted! I have been to a few concerts in good old Wichita--my first baby has a signed back stage pass in her baby album. My sister-in-law got it for me; I've never met Amy. It's so funny to read other comments I can relate to. I have always felt like I could be Amy's friend since I can relate to her music so well! The last concert I went with my mom & my 13 yr old daughter. I totally embarassed my daughter by singing in my seat the whole night! Can't wait for new Amy music--love all the old ones! Won't you play some classics for us? Maybe "Saved by Love", one of my all time faves I sing to my six kids.  One last thing, in college years I traveled with a ministry team & when we sang was told I reminded them of Amy. My friend Steve & I would do "Friends" like Amy & MWS at camps! We had so much fun!

I must have been 17 and Unguarded had been out a while and I had a little bit of a crush on Amy.  A local radio station was celebrating an aniversary (5yrs or 10yrs?) and they had a mail a postcard contest to have dinner with Amy (along with other gifts).  I must have purchased and filled out 75 postcards and mailed the to the, somewhat well connected in the Christian Music business DJ.   That Sunday they did the drawing and my name was chosen.  I was excited and actually scared at the same time.  I went to school and let everyone know I was going to have dinner with Amy.. No one belived me until someone who was also was listening confrimed my story.  Two days later I showed up to "collect" my prize.  I walked in the office and saw the lifesized cardboard cut out from the album.  I sat down collect my tapes and other swag but really wanted to find out about the dinner.  Several minutes later the DJ pointed to the life sized cut out and said "any time you want to go, Amy and I will take you to McDonalds."  I sat there stunned and shocked.. not sure how many minutes passed in silence but I collected my items and walked out crushed that they DJ had "mislead" me...  Looking back it is one of those stories that I tell with fond sadness (I'm sure each time I tell it I sound more pathetic).  After all how many people can saw that they were stood up by Amy Grant.  Daniel in Indy

I remember sitting on the floor in the front of the empty church after mass listening to your music on my walkman. I really felt like you were singing all about my life so many times. I still buy all your music. Thanks for sharing your beautiful gift with me & all those other teenagers that knew you were singing about them too!

Amy, you have been one of our favorite artists.  We have several cd's.  We first saw you and Vince at your Chistmas concert several years ago in Atlantic City.  While we were there, Compassion was there and we signed up to help support a child.  We are so glad that we did that.  We have been blessed by God through the ups and downs.  Just hearing you talking tonight is wonderful.  We had lost a good friend this fall.  One of my wifes best frineds.  She really has had a tough time with it.  She's in the midst of writing a song about her.  She was a one of a kind friend.  A true heart of an angel!  Nichole loves to sing and has written several songs.  Maybe someday her songs will bless people like yours have others.  Thanks & God Bless!

Hey Amy!!! I just wanted you to know that when I was a young teenager, I remember my cousin brought me to a skating rink and they played your music lots that night... I wasn't a Christian yet, and I even though I was into lots of rock music, I remember thinking and knowing your music was cool, it was different.. and there might be something more to Christianity than I thought.... I thought it was all old style gospel which bored me before, but your music was different, and I knew that. My cousin gave me your cassette and I listened to it over the years till I was saved and beyond and I remember you because of that! Thank you for your music!!!!

I was saved at the age of 21 in 1986 and I have two Amy Grant Albums still.  She was the first Christian artist I ever listened to and her album Straight Ahead helped me to see God in a new way.  The other album I have is Unguarded.  They both ministered to my heart so much as a new Christian who had been in the party scene and far away from God just months before He saved me.  Thank you Amy for your ministry!

Amy, there are so many thoughts I'd like to express to you, and I wish that there was a significant way to say thank you.  You have been an inspiration to me for as long as I can remember.  As a little girl, I danced in my living room to your music.  You are the artist who always earned back up vocals as I sang at the top of my lungs into my hairbrush. My first solo at church was El Shaddai, and even though I have horrible stage fright, I closed my eyes and just sang from my heart, and felt God so close to me on that day.  No matter what was going on in my life, there was a song waiting with a message I needed to hear, and I thank you for being open to allowing God to work through you, so that He could speak to me.  Thank you, and may you be richly blessed, as you so richly bless others.

Amy's House of Love tour was my very first concert when I was in 5th or 6th grade I think. I live in a suburb of Chicago and we actually drove from Chicago to Ft. Wayne and back just for the concert. My grandparents lived in Ft. Wayne and she was at the Colliseum and my grandpa was able to get us 4 tickets. It was my mom, brother, mom's friend, and I. My parents never ever took us out of school for ANYTHING but I remember we got out of school early to go to the concert. Love her music and am totally excited that she's there with you. The full albums of "The Collection" and "House of Love" are on my iPod and I listen to them regularly. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. Love, love, love.

Amy, I thank God for your music.  It has gotten me through so many hard times in the past.  I too am 49 years old and have loved your music for years.  I used to rent your Age to Age Video so many times that the video store finally sold it to me. One of my favorite songs is "Father's Eyes." That song touched my heart the first time I heard it. I have always tried to live my life that way. I told my husband those are the words I want engraved on my tombstone. That is how I want to be remembered. I recall you talking about how in our every day lives of running, that we don't ever stop to think about the kind of day others around us are having. And the song "Friends" has taken me through good friends moving away, my mom and sisters funerals and so many other difficult times as a reminder that I will see them all again because of our relationship with The Lord.  Thank you for all the great memories!  Like the woman said earlier on the show, you are the best friend that we will probably never get to actually meet.  I can't wait to get your new CD in March.  If you are going back on tour, I hope that you will consider coming somewhere close to Clarksburg, West Virginia.  Denise Davis

Hey Amy,  Gosh...you may never see this but I wanted you to know the radio interview today really ministered to me...the realness & vulnerability.  Also, I have a friend w/pancreatic cancer...he & his wife have been battling for so long...my own cancer battle kind of overlapped theirs.  But, they're still going.  Your new song...those words...it's going to be just what they need to hear.  I needed it today too.  Thank you for sharing from the heart...for being real - for being you.

Amy...sorry...2nd comment...shame on me.  I'm listening on YouTube...the song that meant so much that you talked about how Klove was "Better Than a Hallelujah".  I had no idea that one of your experiences was walking w/someone who had cancer.  I had cancer...& I'm walking w/someone who still has cancer.  This song...will really bless them.  Thanks again.

I enjoyed listening to part of the interview with Amy Grant.  I've been a Christian for 30 years and I've listened to Klove and to Ms. Grant almost that entire time.  I love the song El Shaddai, however, I was under the impression that Michael Card wrote that song for Ms. Grant to sing.  Is this incorrect?

I definitely wanted to be Amy Grant growing up.  She was my first "favorite singer" as a child, and she continues to be my favorite singer to this day.  (I am 29!)  Pretty much everything I learned about Jesus before my late teens came from Amy Grant music.  I owe her so much for being such a positive role model.  I will always be a fan and hope she never stops singing!

Thank you SO much for having Amy Grant on your program last night.  I hadn't known she was going to be on and, happily, just happened to be in my car with the radio on & caught most of her interview.  Amy Grant is my all-time favorite female Christian singer.  Her beautiful heart & love of Jesus is reflected in her music and was reflected in her interview.  She is authentic, wise & funny - and oh, that voice!  Can you please play more of her music on K-Love?  Alot of us "mature" women have been fans for a long time -and also, it would be wonderful to introduce her to the younger generation.  Thanks again so much for having Amy on your show!!

I first heard of Amy at the end of High School, and took her albums to college. She was such an encouragement to me.  I didn't really want to "be her", but I think she helped me to be a better "me".  

We listened to her all through college and into early marriage. When we lost our first baby to a miscarriage, I was quite saddened, and even angry that the Lord would have allowed that to happen. When I heard of Amy's miscarriage a few months later, I cried all the way to work...realizing that it wasn't personal, if God could allow it to happen to her too. That really helped in my healing process.

We have since gone on to dance with our other babies to "Baby, Baby" "ever since they put our hearts in motion" and I "felt like the queen of the world" when I "loved them with my life" we have "talked to our children and taught them how we've learned to fly" and they have grown up singing some of her songs.

There was a poignant moment once when, due to lay-offs at work, we had to cash in our retirement fund to pay the mortgage. As I turned off the radio to leave the house they played the song "Love has a hold on me".  Hearing those words at that moment enabled me to walk out the door and cash in everything we had in order to get through the day. We have since gone on to rebuild that retirement fund, but the real treasure has been having the Lord speak into our lives along the way.  I thank Amy for being a part of that. Her songs have been a huge part of the back-drop of our lives.  It's been great to have her as a friend even though we have never met. I'm so excited to hear of this new release coming in March!
