Jamie Grace is a musician, speaker and actress from Atlanta, Ga. Diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome at the age of 11, she lives life with a streak of resilience and dedication that is well beyond her years. She began acting and singing as a young child in school and church programs. A few years after her diagnosis of TS, OCD and ADHD, she began pursuing music, acting and speaking as a way 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 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 and went home as the Dove Award’s New Artist of the Year.
At just 24 years old, now independent artist Jamie Grace has four #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. While recording her third studio album, Jamie Grace currently serves as a worship leader at her home church in Stone Mountain, Ga.
