Famed Christian music artist Amy Grant shocked many when she announced she is hosting a same-sex wedding.
The singer-songwriter and wife of Vince Gill made the controversial announcement to the Washington Post:
In recent years, she has voiced support for the LGBTQ community, where she has had a large fan base for decades. Now, she talks about her and Gill’s plans to host her niece’s wedding at their farm, which is her family’s “first bride and bride” nuptials. Grant recalls her reaction when she learned her niece had come out: What a gift to our whole family to just widen the experience of our whole family.
“Honestly, from a faith perspective, I do always say, ‘Jesus, you just narrowed it down to two things: love God and love each other,’ ” Grant told the outlet. “I mean, hey — that’s pretty simple.”
Grant has been recovering from a bicycle accident after she was hospitalized in July.
“I’m just on a healing journey,” the 62-year-old told Fox News earlier this month.
The “El Shaddai” singer was one of five recipients of the 45th Kennedy Center Honors, which also included George Clooney, Gladys Knight, Tania León, and U2 band emmbers, including Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr.
When President Biden was honoring her at the White House, he seemed to forget her greatest hits.
