“Heart of the Father” Marks Newcomer Ryan Ellis’ Debut as a Recording Artist
By Lindsay Williams
Eight-time GRAMMY nominee Natalie Grant has remained one of Christian music's top-selling artists since her 2005 breakout RIAA Gold-certified album, Awaken.
Known for powerful vocals, heart-gripping lyrics and passionate performances, Grant has since gone on to amass more than 500 million streams and has garnered several #1 singles at radio.
Having been named Female Vocalist of the Year by the Gospel Music Association five times, Grant has propelled multiple records to the #1 spot on the Billboard album charts, including her most recent, Be One.
Along with her friend Charlotte Gambill, she launched Dare to Be, a series of special one-night events for women. In addition, she’s the author of multiple books, including the Glimmer Girls series for tween girls.
A fierce advocate for social justice, she’s also the co-founder of Hope for Justice, an international non-profit organization with 32 offices spanning 10 countries, that works to end modern-day slavery.
The singer and her husband, GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter/producer Bernie Herms, live in Nashville with their three daughters. Grant’s powerful new single, "My Weapon," releases February 21, 2020.
