NASHVILLE, TN - March 25, 2022 - Today, six-time GRAMMY® award winner Amy Grant released a cover of the classic hit song "Put A Little Love In Your Heart," as well as a unique music video including fan-submitted photos and videos taken from her 2021 Line By Line Tour. Grant teased the release yesterday on GMA3, talking about how she closed out each show with “Put A Little Love In Your Heart” and it was a highlight at each stop. Amy will be hosting a YouTube Livestream event at 10:40 am ET, sharing about the video and Q&A with fans leading up to a 11am ET premiere of the music video, followed by an afterparty with fans after the video premiere on her YouTube Channel.




Known for her philanthropic work as much as for her music, and often commenting, "my heroes are people that help others," the song is one Grant considers just as relevant today as it was when it was co-written by Jackie DeShannon in 1969, with lyrics including: "Another day goes by, And still the children cry, Put a little love in your heart; If you want the world to know, We won't let hatred grow, Put a little love in your heart." Grant's heart to serve others has found her partnering with organizations including the American Red Cross, Compassion International, The T.J. Martell Foundation, Challenge Aspen, Brad & Kimberly Paisley's "The Store," hosted NBC's "Three Wishes" and so much more.
 
"The message of Jackie's song has never been more needed than today," Grant remarked. "I recorded this cover at the encouragement of my longtime friend and drummer, Greg Morrow and I have been closing my concerts with this song for years. When making the video we wanted to honor the fans who keep showing up. I love seeing the faces of people who continue to come to my concerts and have kept my career going all these years, longer than I ever expected! Here's to many more years of celebrating music together!”
 
Timely and fitting with the release of the new track is Guideposts magazine's current issue, out today, which features Grant on its cover and a feature story where she writes about her strong belief in prayer, penning three personal stories, including one about how any act of generosity, no matter how small, truly makes a difference. Grant also shares with readers her own guiding prayer each day of, “Lord lead me today to those I need, and to those who need me, and let some thing I do have eternal significance.”
 
About Amy Grant:
Amy Grant's career spans more than 40 years and stretches from her roots in gospel into becoming an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality and philanthropist. With three multi-platinum albums, six platinum albums and four gold albums, her total career album sales have exceeded 30 million and over 1 billion global streams. Grant’s chart success has been consistent throughout her career with six No. 1 hits, 10 Top 40 pop singles, 17 Top 40 Adult Contemporary tracks and multiple Contemporary Christian chart-toppers. In addition to her six GRAMMY® Awards, Grant has earned 26 Dove Awards (including four Artist of the Year Awards) and has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as the Music City Walk of Fame and the Nashville Songwriter's Hall of Fame. Conventional wisdom has it that Grant put Contemporary Christian Music on the map becoming the first Contemporary Christian artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit No. 1 on the Pop charts and the first to perform at the GRAMMY® Awards. With that, her legacy as one of the most influential artists of the past four decades is assured. In April of 2016, Grant celebrated the 25th anniversary of her iconic hit “Baby Baby” with a worldwide release of the song featuring pop sensation Tori Kelly. Tennessee Christmas released in late 2016 and marked Grant’s first all-new holiday album in nearly 20 years. In February 2020, The T.J. Martell Foundation – the music industry’s leading nonprofit to fund innovative medical research focused on treatments and cures for cancer – honored Grant with the Tony Martell Outstanding Entertainment Achievement Award at their annual Honors Gala. 2021 found Grant celebrating her iconic, 5x platinum album, Heart In Motion, releasing a double disc 35th Anniversary Edition on July 9 that included never before released tracks and updated remixes of the hit singles. 2022 promises to be a busy year with touring as well as a new single release, a cover of the classic song “Put A Little Love In Your Heart,” which closes out Amy’s current shows. Additionally, 2022 marks anniversaries of her platinum-selling classic “Age To Age” album and the gold-selling “Behind The Eyes” albums.
