"Natalie Grant" (born December 21 1971) is a singer-songwriter in the area of contemporary Christian music. Her recent work has gained prominence, with the Dove award for best female artist, and with her popular single, "Held". Born in Seattle, she currently lives in Nashville with her husband, Bernie Herms.
Besides recording songs, she has also worked to bring awareness to the problem of children being sold as sex slaves in sex trades around the world. While watching an episode of Law and Order, she was appalled to learn that this even happened in the United States. As a result, she has started the HOME Foundation, an organization that raises awareness of the issue of human trafficking.
As a young woman she suffered from bulimia and has since used her celebrity status to increase awareness of the disease.
