The memoir of Christian music artist Amy Grant will release this fall, the book's publisher announced this month.
Mosaic: Pieces of My Life So Far will be released Oct. 16, 2007, and will be published as a trade paperback the following year.
"We've come to know the much beloved Amy Grant through her remarkable career as a singer and a songwriter. Now she has put pen to paper to deliver a beautifully written and deeply moving memoir that we are very honored to be publishing," stated Suzanne Herz, publisher of Flying Dolphin Press.
The book will coincide with EMI Music Group's CD release of Amy Grant's Greatest Hits on Oct. 16, 2007. EMI has digitally re-mastered Grant's entire music catalogue and will release the CDs on Aug. 14, 2007.
"Amy's music has impacted millions of people worldwide and now her life will continue to do so through the printed word. Mosaic promises to be an intimate look back at seasons of this multi talented singer/actress/songwriter's life that I know will inspire and entertain those who read it," stated Bill Hearn, President and CEO, EMI CMG.
Amy Grant's career spans more than 25 years and stretches from her gospel music roots to becoming an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality, and philanthropist.
Grant has won six Grammys in multiple categories, beginning with the platinum-selling Age to Age in 1982. She also has six #1 hits, including "Baby, Baby" and "Every Heartbeat."
Grant released her first live recording in 25 years with Time Again...Amy Grant Live in September 2006, and she is conducting a symphony tour through 2007, performing with local symphonies in Atlanta, Minneapolis, Kansas City, and more.
The hit song "Baby, Baby" is currently featured in a line of 200 Hallmark song cards that plays music from original recording artists when opened.
Correction: Monday, July 30, 2007
An article on Sunday, July 29, 2007, about the memoir of Amy Grant included incorrect information from Doubleday publicity about some of the Christian music artist's upcoming releases. According to Todd Doughty, Doubleday's associate director of publicity, the upcoming dates for Grant's memoir and Grant's digitally re-mastered music catalog should read 2007, not 2008. Also, EMI Music Group's CD release of Grant's Greatest Hits is Oct. 16, 2007, not Oct. 2, 2008.
