GRAMMY ® Award Winning Artist Partners With Skincare Brand philosophy to Benefit the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s (EIF) Women’s Cancer Research Fund
Nashville, Tenn. Apr. 28, 2009… GRAMMY ® Award Winning Singer/Songwriter, philanthropist and mother, Amy Grant will release her first new, non-Christmas music in five years with the release of She Colors My Day EP exclusively on iTunes ® the week of May 5 and in partnership with the skin care brand philosophy.
Grant will debut two new songs for Mother’s Day: “She Colors My Day”, a fun pop-song about a mother’s love for her daughter, and the beautiful soul-stirring “Unafraid” which is a tribute to Amy’s own mother. Available May 5 with a debut exclusively on iTunes ®, the 4-song EP also includes classic Grant hits “Baby Baby” and “Oh, How The Years Go By”. The colorful music video for “She Colors My Day” will have an exclusive Amazon.com debut on May 12.
“I’m so glad to be releasing some new music,” says Grant. “I’ve been working on a lot of new material and two of the new songs seemed to fit perfectly for a special Mother’s Day release. ‘Unafraid’ is motherhood from every angle --- partner, parent, caregiver -- a perspective that every 40-something mom knows all too well. And ‘She Colors My Day’ makes me smile thinking of how my own daughters brighten up my life.”
