Natalie Diane Grant was born on December 21, 1971 in Seattle, Washington. She is a singer-songwriter of contemporary Christian music. She received the Gospel Music Association’s Dove Award for Female Vocalist of the Year four consecutive years (2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009), and again in 2012. She was also nominated for a Grammy in 2012 for her performance of “Alive”. Her signature song is “Held”.
She enrolled at Northwest College (Now Northwest University) in Kirkland, Washington, studying to be a schoolteacher.She reportedly figured that her musical gifts were merely for sharing with her local church until she learned how to find God’s true calling for her life, and so switched directions and joined the musical group Truth.
In pursuing her music career, Grant moved to Nashville, Tennessee where she now lives with her Canadian producer husband, Bernie Herms, and their three daughters; Grace Ana and Isabella Noelle (born February 16, 2007) and Sadie Rose (born December 17, 2010)
In an interview with The 700 Club, Natalie revealed that she suffered from bulimia. She says God helped her get over her eating disorder. She later wrote a book in 2005 titled “The Real Me: Being the Girl God Sees”, about her struggle and how she overcame it.
