Christian singer Natalie Grant responds to critics regarding Grammys

Singer Natalie Grant in 2008Critically-acclaimed Christian artist Natalie Grant, who was nominated for two gospel Grammy Awards this year, became the unintentional center of a media storm when she left the awards show early on Sunday night,Tweeting that she had some thoughts in her head about the show which were better left unsaid. As reported in Natalie Grant leaves Grammys early–Tweets cause media frenzy, the mainstream, usually liberal media jumped on her Tweets and ended up accusing Grant of everything from being a poor sport to intolerance to hating gays. In response to her critics, the Nashville resident posted on her Facebook page: I NEVER said I left during any particular performance. I only said I left early. I never pointed out any one particular performance, I only said I had many thoughts about the entire show, which were best left inside my head and that is where they will stay. So those who say I condemned one performance but then condoned others clearly did not read the post. What I DID say is this: I am honored to be a part of the Christian music community. I’ve had many people throughout my career ask why I never tried to go in to mainstream music and last night was a beautiful reminder that I love singing about Jesus and FOR Jesus. I’ve judged no one. I hate no one. And I believe that every person has been created in the image of God. I will never stand on a street corner and wave a sign, I won’t use my platform to engage in political arguments that will only divide and not unite. I will continue to pray that my life will be my message. I do have my own personal convictions that I live by, and I will continue to work out my own salvation with fear and trembling before the Lord. (Philippians 2:12) I was honored to be nominated for 2 Grammy awards last night. I’m so grateful that NARAS and The Grammys continue to recognize the contribution that gospel and Christian music make to the world. And I’m so thrilled for those who won in my categories. And I can say that with all sincerity. My last thought: “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus for it is the power of God who brings salvation to ALL who believe.” Romans 1:16 Grant’s most recent project is 2013’s Hurricane. Besides her award-winning music career, Natalie Grant is also actively involved in campaigning against human trafficking. Examiner.com

    Anyone who is a Christian that saw five minutes of the Grammys knows why Ms. Grant left. The show was filled with sin. Sin is popular to the pop music crowds. They sing about sex, death, and darkness. Would you as a Christian want Jesus to find you there?

    Just curious…if she was really just leaving because she was uncomfortable or whatever, why did she send that initial tweet? She ignited this firestorm. I haven’t seen what others said about her (I’m not a big Grammy follower, and honestly I’ve never heard of this singer), but I’m sure that there were some things said that she absolutely did not deserve. But for people to question why she left after she said “I have thoughts better left unsaid” is perfectly valid. If she didn’t want the questions, she shouldn’t have opened it up. (Unless she just wanted attention…but attention-grabbing does not seem like the kind of activity He would condone.)

    She never said when she left! So, where’s the problem? These critics are dumber than a box of rocks! She could have heard about the mockeries against God later on after she left! So haters, lay off her! She could have gotten a call and had to leave!
