NATALIE GRANT TO HEADLINE SECOND ANNUAL HOME FOUNDATION CONCERT AT NASHVILLE’S HISTORIC BELCOURT THEATRE

NASHVILLE, Tenn.— GMA’s reigning three-time Female Vocalist of the Year and Curb recording artist, Natalie Grant, is slated to headline the Second Annual Home Foundation Concert at Nashville’s historic Belcourt Theatre on February 17 at 7 pm. Benefiting Grant’s Home Foundation, the concert will also feature GMA’s 2008 New Artist of the Year and Reunion recording artist Brandon Heath; Reunion recording artist Tenth Avenue North, and new BEC recording artist Phillip LaRue. Grant established the Home Foundation in 2005 to raise awareness of international human trafficking.  A priority of her ministry platform, Grant educates audiences on the plight of children, both domestically and around the world, forced into the sex trade. The Foundation’s most recent endeavor is the H.O.M.E.S Project, which operates in conjunction with various agencies working to combat trafficking in the United States. The H.O.M.E.S. Project helps those providing refuge to victims by offering hope, opportunity, mentoring, empowerment and spiritual support through educational and credentialing services. In 2008, Grant became the first artist in 13 years to win the GMA Dove Award for Female Vocalist of the Year three consecutive times.  Fueled by the success of her best-selling, critically acclaimed seventh studio recording, Relentless, Grant was also the most-played female artist on Christian radio last year. Her latest single, “Our Hope Endures,” is currently #15 on R&R’s Christian AC National Airplay chart, according to the January 23 issue. Tickets for the Second Annual Home Foundation Concert can be purchased at www.belcourt.org or by calling 615-846-3150. General admission is $20 ($25 at the door) and $10 student ($12.50 at the door).
