Nashville, TN (April 11, 2020)
This Easter Sunday, 6x GRAMMY-winner Amy Grant will do something she’s never done before—perform on national TV from her living room. Grant will appear on FOX & Friends during the 8am EST hour to sing “How Great Thou Art.”
Also on Easter, Grant is partnering with Gratitunes to give thanks to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) staff in Nashville by releasing “Carry You,” a special video song message. On National Doctors’ Day, March 30, Music Row and Nashville’s creative community came together to support VUMC staff through the launch of “Gratitunes,” a consumer-generated music platform to celebrate and thank members of the VUMC family, through the power of music, for their dedication, empathy and unwavering commitment during the COVID-19 pandemic. Brad Paisley kicked-off the program and through the month of April, a new artist each day is sending a ‘Gratitune’ on their personal Instagram page.
Individuals can visit www.gratitunes.com to add their own ‘Gratitune’ to a playlist, which will be made available to all COVID-19 VUMC Assessment Sites and the Hospital to help lessen stress and anxiety, and lift spirits. Once a Gratitune is shared, individuals will receive a unique graphic with their dedicated tune that can be shared across all social media platforms, using hashtags #Gratitunes and #VUMCHeroes, encouraging others to do the same.
Grant recently helped the Grand Ole Opry continue its nearly 100-year history of consecutive Saturday Night broadcasts, playing its 4,917th Saturday night show to an empty Opry House, joining her husband and Opry member Vince Gill, alongside daughters Jenny Gill and Corrina Grant Gill. Grant also took a private moment and posted a performance dedicated to doctors, nurses, and all on the front lines helping serve COVID-10 patients on her FaceBook page late last week.
