Less than 24 hours after its release, “Beautiful Day” jumped to the No. 1 spot on the iTunes® Christian & Gospel Songs Chart.
Jamie has also released a lyric video for “Beautiful Day” that combines her performance of the song with animated hand drawn lyrics and imagery.
The song reunites Jamie with producer/songwriter Christopher Stevens under the direction of TobyMac and will be a part of her forthcoming new album to release later this year.
“I’m still having a hard time processing the response to ‘Hold Me,’ the song I started in my dorm room,” says Jamie. “The past few years have been absolutely incredible and I feel so blessed to have the privilege of sharing even more music. ‘Beautiful Day,’ although a fun song, has a message saying that in spite of what we’re going through, every day is a good day and an incredible gift because God made it. In my young life I’ve learned that every day can begin with worshipping my Creator.”
The breakout success of her previous GRAMMY®-nominated, No. 1 smash hit “Hold Me (feat. TobyMac)” assisted in propelling Jamie to win her first GMA Dove Award—for New Artist of the Year—last year, in addition to a Billboard Music Award nomination.
As a result, in part of the huge success of “Hold Me,” she has experienced a major wave of acclaim and popularity in the last few years, that is evident in her YouTube’s channel combined 13 million views and even finding her making an appearance on ABC’s hit talk show ‘The View.”
This fall, Jamie will appear on the silver screen with the release of the Lionsgate film Grace Unplugged, an entertaining story of a talented teenager rising in the music industry led by AJ Michalka (Super 8, The Lovely Bones), James Denton (Desperate Housewives), and Kevan Pollak (A Few Good Men).
Jamie Grace will be a featured guest on TobyMac’s “HITS Deep Tour 2013,” making stops across the country in November and December. The “HITS Deep Tour” 2013 will also include Brandon Heath, Mandisa, Colton Dixon, Chris August and Capital Kings. To view her complete tour schedule, visit www.jamiegrace.com.
