NGU to Host Amy Grant, Taylors Free Medical Clinic Annual Gathering
Tigerville, SC (April 7, 2021) North Greenville University (NGU) is pleased to announce that it will host the Taylors Free Medical Clinic annual gathering Tuesday, April 13 at 6:30 p.m. in Turner Chapel on its Tigerville Campus. Amy Grant, a Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and musician, will be the featured speaker.
Taylors Free Medical Clinic is a faith-based clinic located in Taylors, SC, whose mission is to minister to the mind, body, and spirit of the medically indigent and uninsured of Greenville County. While the clinic strives to show Christ’s love through its daily interactions, none of its services are contingent upon its patients affirming or adhering to their Christian Statement of Faith.
Grant started in contemporary Christian music (CCM) before a successful crossover to pop music in the 1980s and 1990s. She is referred to as “The Queen of Christian Pop.”
As of 2009, she had sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, won six Grammy Awards and 22 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, and had the first Christian album to go Platinum. She was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2006 for her contributions to the entertainment industry.
Grant made her debut as a teenager and gained fame in Christian music during the 1980s with such hits as Father’s Eyes, El Shaddai, and Angels. In the mid-1980s, she began broadening her audience and soon became one of the first CCM artists to cross over into mainstream pop on the heels of her successful albums Unguarded and Lead Me On.
In 1986, she scored her first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 song in a duet with Peter Cetera, The Next Time I Fall. In 1991, she released the blockbuster album Heart in Motion which became her best-selling album to date. It topped the Billboard Christian album chart for 32 weeks, selling five million copies in the U.S., and producing her second No. 1 pop single, Baby Baby.
She is the author of several books, including a memoir, Mosaic: Pieces of My Life So Far, and a book based on the popular Christmas song Breath of Heaven (Mary’s Song), which she co-wrote.
