On the heels of the release of her new album, Be One, singer Natalie Grant talked to The Christian Post about the current state of the world and what she believes has been missing.
The multiple Dove Award winner admitted she was not approached by her record company, Curb Records, to make a new album, but was “compelled” by what was happening around her and in her. Despite her label being hesitant, the Seattle-born singer proceeded to write and record song after song, completing the album in just 6 weeks.
A six week turnaround time for a big studio album is very rare but when asked how she did it, Grant gives all the glory to God. Her song “Clean,” which now has over a million views on Facebook, was written after a conversation with her friend who confessed that she suffered from a lot of abuse. Grant said she was so burdened by her friend’s story that she wrote the song in 20 minutes.
“I really honestly feel like I was just truly holding the pen – that God breathed this message into my life and put it unto the wings of a melody,” she poetically explained.
