About Natalie Grant

Known for her big voice and even bigger heart, Natalie Grant is one of modern Christian music’s biggest stars and most prominent advocates for social justice.

∙ Grant’s 1999 self-titled debut album included a song, “I Am Not Alone,” cowritten by Utah Senator Orrin Hatch.
∙ Her commercial breakthrough came in 2005 with Awaken, which hit No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums chart and was later certified Gold.
∙ An eight-time Grammy nominee, she was first named Female Vocalist of the Year by the Gospel Music Association in 2006—and subsequently received the honor four more times.
∙ Both 2013’s Hurricane and 2015’s Be One went to No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums chart.
