Musician Jamie Grace: Her Story of Triumph
Written by Christi Given | February 21, 2012
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 (theChristianPost.com).
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!
