Grammy Award-Winning Christian Pop Artist Amy Grant to Headline Pepperdine University Event at Beverly Wilshire



April 11, 2023 – Malibu, CA – GRAMMY Award–winning Christian pop artist Amy Grant will perform at the 47th annual Pepperdine Associates dinner to be held on Saturday, April 22, at 6 PM at the Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills. This year’s event will celebrate Pepperdine’s dramatic growth, outstanding student and alumni accomplishments all over the world, and the exciting new initiatives and achievements just over the horizon.

Grant is a singer-songwriter who began her career in the Christian music industry and became a crossover pop success. She signed her first record deal at age 17 and in 1982 released her breakthrough album, Age to Age, earning her serious recognition within the growing contemporary Christian music community and ushering her into stardom. Her accolades include six GRAMMYs and more than 20 Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association, as well as stars on both the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Music City Walk of Fame. Known as the “queen of Christian pop,” Grant was the first contemporary Christian artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit number one on the pop charts, and the first to perform at the GRAMMY Awards

"I have several connections to Pepperdine,” said Grant. “Family and friends have attended there, and I love the people I know who have graduated from there. My experiences on campus have always felt magical. I love supporting this community that encourages creativity, individuality, education and spiritual growth. Imagine a world where everyone knew how loved they were by their Creator -- what a wonderful world it would be."
