Musician Jamie Grace: Her Story of Triumph

    You may not have heard of Jamie Grace yet, but you should know about her! Grace, 20, plays a six-string acoustic guitar and sings about Jesus. She is no average musician–despite being a Grammy nominee, she certainly hasn’t had a perfect life. This young and up-and-comer is a trooper and a victor!

    Grace is famous for her pop-acoustic song “Hold Me,” a collaboration with famous Christian artist TobyMac. The song is rising in popularity!

    Watch the video for “Hold Me”:

    When Grace was 11, she was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, a condition that causes your body to have uncontrollable movements, or “tics.” The kids at school made fun of her and bullied her. Grace said it was very difficult, but now looking back, she knows what she went through made her the person she is today.

    Watch this video from CNN about her:

    When Grace was little, her grandfather gave her a drum set and encouraged her to put her focus on something to help her TS. She said she found that music was therapeutic. This helped fuel her music and songwriting. Now, Grace has a No. 1 hit single. She even was nominated for 2011’s “Best contemporary Christian music song” for “Hold Me.”

    Grace hopes to encourage listeners to believe that no matter what is going on, God loves them. At one point, she felt like God didn’t love her, but that was far from the truth.

    I have always wanted to share God’s joy and love with young kids in the hopes it will inspire them,’ said Jamie Grace. ‘I feel blessed to do something like this at my age. It’s rare (

    PI Girls, do you ever feel like things aren’t going the way you’d hoped? Do you feel like God doesn’t care? Well He does! When you feel down, listen to Jamie Grace and remember to be thankful!

    1. I LOVE Jamie Grace! My mom heard her song Hold Me on the radio one day last year and since then I’ve been hooked. I saw her in concert last year and she was amazing! She is such an encouragement and role model in my life! I also got her CD for my birthday! :DD

    2. “You may not have heard of Jamie Grace yet, but you should know about her!” Don’t hate on me, I love this website, but sometimes I feel like its trying too hard to push ideas onto us and is more like advertising who’s bad and who’s good. I’m not saying this site shouldn’t share opinions, but journalism is about presenting the facts and letting people reach their own conclusions.

      K thanks bye Christina Given 🙂

      • Whoa whoa. She never said you should like Jamie-Grace, just that you should know about her. How are you supposed to reach your own conclusions about someone if you don’t know about them. This IS journalism. She’s telling you about someone you may not have known before. Are you saying that they should stop showing us good, Godly role models?

        • And honestly, this website never claimed to be simply “journalism”. What it does claim to be is a Godly, inspirational place for girls to learn the truth. And so if that means showing us who’s “good” and who’s “bad” so be it.

    3. This is soo awesome! I’m going to have to share this with my brother because about five years ago he himself was diagnosed with Tourettes and recently he has been really struggling with it so this is great! Hopefully he will see that Tourettes can not keep him from achieving something:)

    4. Wow this is so inspiring! I know how it feels to live with something in your life (I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis when i was 4), where you just say why did this happen to me? You feel so alone sometimes, like no one cares. I went through a time where I was so depressed, and I didnt feel that I was loved by God so its nice to know im not the only one out there!

      • Same here! I was diagnosed with JRA when I was nine. (The same year I also developed asthma, but it’s gone now thankfully!) It’s hard to hurt. It’s even harder to struggle to accomplish simple tasks that the people around you do so effortlessly. But if it wasn’t for my JRA, then I wouldn’t have gone to Camp Boggy Creek. And it was there that I learned that God has a purpose for my pain. And he really used me to inspire others.
        BTW I love Jamie’s music, and as a novice songwriter, I’m inspired by her determination and dedication to her music and, most importantly to God. 🙂
