Natalie Grant's song, "Be One" found it's inspiration in 1 John 3:18 and Matthew 5:14. The message is to 'be the love of Jesus' to others, "If you know Jesus you have everything you need to make a difference. He's not looking for the spectacular. He's looking for the available," Natalie says. "And, instead of only praying for a miracle, we can be one, we can be a miracle! Because the power of God is working through us. And, I believe that we just might find our own miracle in the middle of being one for somebody else."
Often compared to powerhouse vocalists such a Celine Dion, Natalie has been inspiring listeners with her music for over a decade. Known for her signature songs like “Held,” “In Better Hands” and “I Will Not Be Moved,” the singer consistently delivers a Christ-centered message, and has always been committed to putting feet to her faith by making a difference in the world around her.
Natalie released her album Hurricane in 2013 featuring "Closer To Your Heart," a song that reminds us - God is always by our side. No matter how difficult the storm. "Feeling battered by the waves of your circumstances? God is reaching for you," Natalie encourages."God knows exactly where you were an hour ago, where you’ll be tomorrow, and where you are now. You are not alone. I've journeyed through a lot ... and this record is full of my stories. It's a reminder that no matter how dark the struggle may seem, I am not alone. And through writing these songs, I've been reminded that hope always wins.”
After a life-changing trip to India, Natalie has made it her mission to combat international human trafficking with hope through her work with Abolition International, which she founded in 2005. The trip also served as an inspiration for many of the songs on her breakthrough album Awaken (2005).
“God completely changed my life when I took a trip to India. I saw little, tiny children for sale on the street and I began to learn about the modern day horrors of slavery; human trafficking,” Natalie explains. “I knew I’d be wrecked for life after that trip, but I also knew that I could not stand by and do nothing, I had to do something.”
Natalie continued to encourage her fans with her album, Love Revolution (2010), featuring "Your Great Name," "Alive" and "Human," among others. Each song is meant to motivate you to be the change you want to see. "When we live the love of the Gospel out loud, a revolution will occur," she reflects.
Married to Christian music producer Bernie Herms, Natalie also treasures her role as a Mom to her three girls: Grace Ana, Isabella Noelle and Sadie Rose.
“We were told we would never conceive and we had a less than a one percent chance of ever conceiving a child, so it’s been the coolest shock of our lives,” Natalie reflects. “He (God) always has the last word in the situations of our lives, it’s not always the word we want to here, but in this situation it’s a miracle.”
