Amy Grant & Vince Gill Bring Holiday Show to Fox Theatre Today
Now that the holiday season has come around, music superstars Amy Grant and Vince Gill light The Fox Theatre with cheer and goodwill when they perform their beloved holiday show featuring the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra tonight, December 16th at 7:30 pm.
"Christmas audiences are special," explains Grant. "They tend to involve the whole family, and their emotions are a wonderful mix of anticipation and reverence. It's a thrilling experience for both of us." "These holiday shows have become our favorites," Gill agrees. In their two hour program, the Grammy-winning husband-and-wife team will present cherished standards and newer seasonal fare as well as some of their biggest hits.
Amy Grant's career spans over 30 years and stretches from her roots in gospel into an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality, and philanthropist. Grant has sold more than 30 million albums and won six Grammy Awards in multiple categories, beginning with the platinum selling Age to Age in 1982. She also has six #1 hits, including "Baby, Baby," and "Every Heartbeat" and is one of only two Christian artists to be awarded a star on the legendary Walk of Fame in Hollywood. Grant released her first live recording in 25 years with Time Again...Amy Grant Live in September 2006, and then announced her first ever label shift to EMI Music Group where her entire music catalog was re-mastered and released via a Greatest Hits CD and made available for the first time digitally. In the fall of 2008 she released her first new Christmas music in 9 years, The Christmas Collection, and this past March released her first new music in 6 years, with Somewhere Down The Road, which debuted at #2 on the Christian Soundscan Chart. The first single, "Better Than A Hallelujah" was a Top 10 hit.
