For Immediate Release: The “Queen of Christian Pop” Comes to Escondido


Escondido, California — :

Contemporary Christian Music artist, Amy Grant performs at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido on Thursday, February 21, 2019 starting at 7:30pm in the Concert Hall.

Conventional wisdom has it that Amy Grant put Contemporary Christian Music on the map, becoming the first CCM artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit No. 1 on the Pop charts with “Baby Baby”, and the first to perform at the GRAMMY Awards. Since then, Grant has been strumming her way through a 30-plus year adventure as a singer-songwriter, author, television host and speaker.

Over the years, she has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, including three multi-platinum, six platinum, and four gold. Her chart performance has also been consistent throughout her career, boasting six No. 1 hits, 10 “Top 40” pop singles, 17 “Top 40” adult contemporary tracks and multiple contemporary Christian chart toppers.

In recognition of such success, Grant has received 6 GRAMMY Awards and 26 Dove Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a star on the Music City Walk of Fame.  Additionally, she was most recently inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.
