Amy Grant Does Good

December 12, 2009 at 7:01 pm , by

When Amy Grant was asked to sing the song, “Give This Christmas Away,” forveggietalesstnicholas-1 the Veggie Tales movie, Saint Nicholas: A Story of Joyful Giving, she was so moved by the message of the song that even though she was supposed to be taking some time off, she immediately hopped on board.

I got the chance to sit down with Amy to discuss how she hopes the song’s message, about turning the focus off of ourselves this Christmas to help those in need, impacts listeners. “I hope that the song sticks in somebody’s head,” says Grant. “And the next time they go to the grocery store, and they see someone from the Salvation Army ringing their bell, they think, I’ve never actually walked over and put something in there, but I think I’m going to give a chunk of change—I might even put in some paper money.” Check out more from my talk with her below.

And here is the video for the song, “Give This Christmas Away.”
