“I’m extremely excited about these special evening events,” says Amy Grant. “I love music, but I love it most in small intimate venues where I get to really connect with the audience. The structure of these evenings is so unique and elegant. Anytime you can combine music, art and a great cause, I think you have something very special. The evenings are really about telling stories, singing songs and sharing art – all to benefit the lives of students and children in need.”
