Just a brief update….
Had a productive and great week last week. On Tuesday, Amy and Vince did a photo shoot for the February cover of Good Housekeeping. They both looked spectacular for the photos and seemed to enjoy the process even though neither of them are very fond of photo shoots! I took some candid photos on my camera but the art director of Good Housekeeping asked me not to post them yet. I will post them when I can.
On Wednesday night, Amy performed at the American Association of Christian Counselors conference at Opryland Hotel. It was a great group of people and the list of speakers for the 4-day conference was incredible. Amy performed solo and got a standing ovation. She started her set with the new song, "Find What You're Looking For," and also did "Saved By Love," one of her scripture memorization songs and then finished the set with an incredibly moving version of "El Shaddai." I received so many comments after the event about how Amy's honesty and vulnerability really set the stage for the entire conference.
On Thursday and Friday, Amy was in Memphis for the re-dedication of the Target House at St. Jude. The Amy Grant Entertainment Room had recently been upgraded and redecorated along with several other rooms in the house. Amy toured the hospital, played guitar for some of the patients and families, and had a great time visiting with the incredible staff from St. Jude and Target. St. Jude is truly a special place and we love our partnership with them.
In the midst of all that, Amy also found time to do a writing session with Dave Barnes (INCREDIBLE songwriter). We are continuing to take steps toward getting a new record out in 2010… do not give up on us!
Finally, this Saturday September 26, Amy will be part of the Extraordinary Women's Conference in Roanoke, VA. I believe tickets are still available.
More to come…
