Offering hope in the midst of life’s storms proves to be a central theme for Grant who is set to release her highly anticipated album, Hurricane on October 15, 2013 from Curb Records. Within hours of its release in May, the lead single, “Hurricane” hit number one on iTunes (http://bit.ly/Hurricane1), and exploded onto the Billboard and MediaBase charts, making it the fastest rising single of her career. The record-breaking success of the single proves quite an accomplishment for one of the most successful crossover artists in gospel music who has maintained a strong foothold as a top selling icon in the industry.
2013 has already proven to be an exciting year for Grant as she continued Dare To Be, a revolutionary women's live event that drew tens of thousands of attendees across the nation. Grant continues to be an outspoken advocate for victims of human trafficking and founded the organization Abolition International in 2005 which is committed to providing quality restorative aftercare to trafficking victims both domestically and internationally. Fans can also look for Grant as she takes on a supporting role in the 2014 film “Persecuted.” Produced by Gray Frederickson, an Oscar-winning producer who helped make “The Godfather” and “Apocalypse Now” and Directed by Daniel Lusko, Grant will co-star alongside James Remar, Bruce Davison, and Fred Thompson. In addition, Grant visited the nation’s capital twice this year as a guest performer for President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, among others. Her most recent, was her performance at the “Let Freedom Ring” ceremony held at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington commemorating the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
