Twenty six year-old Christian singer, actress and rapper Jamie Grace has taken on social media to announce her recent engagement. She is now engaged to Aaron Collins.
"I SAID YES," Jamie shared on social media. "We met a little over a year ago, then, my 26th birthday was the loveliest yet. It was the start of what feels like an old fashioned courtship from a beautiful book, movie or song I couldn't compose even if I tried."
Grace continued, "Everything about Aaron Collins is a reminder of how good God is and how faithful He is to fulfill His promises for those who wait. I've been so overwhelmed with God's joy and peace, and the bonus of the incredible ways our families are already becoming one...I'll share more as the days go. but my goodness y'all. I've been giggling nonstop since he asked. So so so much giggling."
Grace began acting and singing as a young child in school and church programs but it wasn't until her early teens that she decided to focus on music, acting and speaking as a career. Diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome at the age of 11, she began living life with a streak of resilience and dedication that is well beyond her years. Through her music and words, Jamie Grace hops to encourage other kids who may also have struggles in life. She has since founded ImAFighter.org and the Jamie Grace Foundation, both which advocate for children and families.
When Jamie Grace was 14, she created youtube channels for her music and for "ImAFighter" which, over the years, garnered the attention of record labels and producers. At the age of 17, Jamie Grace became a cast member on TBN's iShine KNECT and began touring with iShine LIVE with her self-produced Pop/Hip Hop CD. Her Youtube channel continued to open doors which included being signed a major record label and joining the national tour The Revolve Tour (by Women of Faith) as a keynote speaker.
As she grew as an artist, songwriter and guitarist, she developed the "Jamie Grace sound" heard in "Hold Me" and "Beautiful Day" and continued to tour and record albums. At 19 she was nominated for a Grammy Award, Billboard Award and multiple Dove Awards where she went home as the Dove Award's New Artist of the Year.
At just 25 years old, now independent artist Jamie Grace has 4 #1 radio singles, many nominations as a singer/songwriter, millions of views on her weekly Youtube videos and a "crazy but awesome" (as Jamie Grace explains it) tour schedule. She is also half of Harper Still, a country-influenced pop duo with her older sister and writing partner Morgan Harper Nichols.
When she isn't on tour or in the studio, Jamie Grace co-hosts the food & lifestyle podcast On The Plate Again with her sister Morgan, The Jamie Grace Show, a webshow and podcast and the podcast God Girl's Club, a weekly mini-devotional for young girls and their families. In the Summer of 2017, Jamie Grace launched LoveWill.net, an extension of The Jamie Grace Foundation, as a way to advocate for children in foster care.
Jamie Grace's 3rd studio album, '91, was released on 9.1.2017 and quickly soared to #1 on the Christian & Gospel Charts.
