Short Biography: Amy Grant was not only one of Christian music's most influential performers but also became a secular pop star in the late '80s and early '90s. This dichotomy drew ire from some in the fiercely protective gospel/CCM community, while it affected her image in the secular world as a Christian first and an attractive pop star second. But Grant herself never gave in to either side. Despite personal adversity and numerous controversies, she continued to be successful in both music worlds, while ultimately being true to herself.

She was born in Augusta, Ga., on Nov. 25, 1960, as the youngest of four children. Her family moved to Nashville shortly after her birth. She released her self-titled debut album at age 16 after signing with Myrrh/Word Records in 1976. In 1982, she married singer-songwriter Gary Chapman, who was to become her co-writer by the late '80s.

She became a gospel star in 1982 following the release of her acclaimed album Age to Age, which won a Grammy for best female gospel performance and three Dove Awards, including artist of the year. In 1984, she released a Christmas album and Straight Ahead. The latter won a Dove award and the cut "Angels," which she co-wrote, won a Grammy. In 1985, Age to Age was certified platinum, and her other two albums went gold. Her album Unguarded, released that same year, was also certified platinum and won her a Grammy. Grant caused an uproar among her loyal gospel audience with this album, which sported two successful pop crossover singles, "Find a Way" and "Wise Up." A year later, she made it to No. 1 on the pop charts with "The Next Time I Fall," a duet with Peter Cetera.

Throughout the '80s, Grant's success continued, as she racked up five Grammys between 1982 and 1988. She signed to A&M in 1990 and began focusing less on her squeaky-clean gospel singer persona, trying to project a more contemporary, sexy (albeit in a wholesome way) pop image. In 1991, she had three hit singles on the pop charts: "Baby Baby," "Every Heartbeat" and "That's What Love Is For." The album Heart in Motion sold 5 million copies and firmly established Grant as a bankable star in the secular world. While some in the Christian community again decried her newfound celebrity as a sellout of her values, Grant herself viewed it as an opportunity for faith ambassadorship. Home for Christmas followed in 1992 and sold 3 million copies.

Released in 1994, House of Love offered another round of wholesome pop, including the hit title duet with Vince Gill, and sold 2 million copies. But things took a more introspective turn with 1997's Behind the Eyes. The album's somber lyrics and spare arrangements were a noticeable departure from the lighthearted pop of her two previous records. But it was an important record, as it presaged her 1999 divorce from Chapman, her husband of 16 years and father of her three children. When the divorce was announced publicly, and it was revealed that Grant intended to marry longtime collaborator Gill, many in the Christian community were again up in arms over Grant's actions. Controversy ensued. Christian radio stations refused to play her songs; some Christian retail outlets pulled her albums. Nevertheless, on March 10, 2000, Grant married Gill in Nashville, and the two united their families. Their daughter Corrina was born a year later.

Recording-wise, the late '90s and early '00s found Grant performing Christmas music for a variety of venues. She released A Christmas to Remember, a collection of contemporary holiday music, in 1999, and hosted a prime time TV special based around the album's themes. The gospel album A Special Wish followed in 2001, leading up to the spring 2002 release of Legacy ... Hymns and Faith. A landmark recording, Legacy was a tasteful look back at the music that both influenced and guided Grant throughout her 25 years as a performer. In August 2003, Grant returned with Simple Things, her first album of new material in six years. While it dealt plainly with Grant's personal struggles, the album's central themes were of faith, love and forgiveness. That autumn, Grant made a round of promotional TV talk show appearances and served as the spokesperson for a nationwide series of 5K walkathons to benefit education.
