Nashville, TN (November 23, 2020)
With an iconic holiday discography spanning more than two decades, Platinum-selling, GRAMMY-nominated Christian music trio Point of Grace recently released its first-ever holiday special. A Point of Grace Christmas, showcasing favorites from the group’s four hit seasonal recordings, is now available via Amazon Prime as well as on DVD. Additionally, the special is slated to air December 16 at 9:00 pm ET on TBN and is currently streaming on the CBN Family App.
An intimate evening of stories and songs filmed live in Nashville, A Point of Grace Christmas includes acoustic renditions of such beloved originals as “Not That Far From Bethlehem,” “Immanuel” and “Candy Cane Lane,” alongside Point of Grace’s signature arrangements of “Joy To The World,” “Jingle Bell Rock” and “The Little Drummer Boy,” among other classics.
Hosted by acclaimed singer/songwriter and author Andrew Greer and featuring guest appearances from Christian music luminaries Michael W. Smith and Newsboys’ Michael Tait, along with bestselling author and speaker Patsy Clairmont, A Point of Grace Christmas also includes behind-the-scenes footage from the group’s 2019 A Christmas Story Tour, as well as holiday memories and conversations with trio members Shelley Breen, Denise Jones and Leigh Cappillino.
“It’s hard to believe that in Point of Grace’s nearly 30-year career this is our first Christmas special,” says Cappillino. “We were honored to share the spotlight with some of our favorite guests who also happen to be some of our very favorite people. And what a year for this to release! As we are touring significantly less than normal and unable to see much of our audience in person, we are thrilled to offer a concert experience that can be viewed safely at home.”
“The three of us have always loved the simple beauty and timeless truthfulness of Christmas music,” Jones adds. “We could never have guessed it would play such a significant role in and throughout our career thus far. Because so many of these songs express the foundation of our beliefs—God so loved the world He gave us Jesus—we consider being ‘known’ for our Christmas music quite an honor.”
Since the release of their seminal holiday recording, A Christmas Story, in 1999, Point of Grace has collectively sold more than 1 million Christmas albums to date. Their seasonal discography also includes Winter Wonderland (2005); Home for the Holidays (2010); and Sing Noël (2017).
