The View: June 20 2013
On The View June 20 2013, Billy Crystal will be stopping by to give us a little more information about his role in the upcoming Monsters Inc. sequel, Monsters University and Amy Grant will be performing.
The View: Amy Grant
Amy Grant has been named “The Queen Of Christian Pop,” and for good reason. She is the highest-selling Christian music singer ever, with over 30 million records sold worldwide, was the first Christian singer to go platinum, has won six Grammys, and is one of the only Christian artist to achieve the level of crossover appeal that she has. The woman is an icon in both the Christian and Pop musical genres.
Though she got her start in music as far back as 1977, it wasn’t until 1985’s Unguarded and even more so 1991’s Heart In Motion that Amy Grant really broke into the mainstream. With catchy pop hits such as “The Next Time I Fall” and “Baby Baby,” Grant fully immersed herself in the mainstream, much to the chagrin of her loyal Christian music followers.
The View: Amy Grant Controversy
Amy Grant also stirred controversy when, in spite of her Christian image and views, she divorced Gary Chapman and remarried Vince Gill in under a year between 1999 and 2000. However, her marriage to Vince Gill has stuck, and she has not gotten any more divorces.
Amy Grant’s most recent album,How Mercy Looks From Here, came out just last month and was met with critical praise. It is probably safe to assume that she will be performing songs off this album tomorrow. The album has seen one single released thus far in the form of “Don’t Try So Hard,” so perhaps that song will be on the bill for tomorrow?
Are there any songs in particular you would like to hear from Amy tomorrow? If you have her new album, what do you think of it? Let us know in the comments below!
