Grant stated: “Once I was asked to tell my story, at a fundraiser, about arising victorious over my trials as a single mother. The fundraiser was to earn money for a local center which treats and supports families in crisis. At that luncheon, I sang a song to all the men in the room. Afterwards an anonymous donor quietly announced to the officiator, with tears streaming down his cheeks, ‘That singing single mother broke my heart’. He then wrote out a check for 30K for the groundbreaking of that center all because his heart was touched by the power of one song.”

It was never Grant’s goal to sing for the masses and the multitudes. When it comes to singing in public, Grant tends to shy away. Her voice is a lullabying voice meant for the one. As a teen, she wanted to write and sing her songs for Jesus. She began to sing for “the one” when she felt inspired to write a song for a heartbroken friend. Soon more songs were flowing through her pen as she wrote songs to comfort her children, her family, her friends and eventually her massage clients. When she learned of each person’s heartache, Grant would pray for a lullaby to give that individual comfort and hope to carry on. Grant began to be invited to perform her music for churches of all denominations, ministering and singing at the prisons, singing at homeless shelters, at the VA hospital and at women’s groups and beyond.
