Grant 2.0?: Amy Grant’s Daughter’s Debut

Earlier this week I ran into a huge Christian music fan in a coffeeshop in Hanover, N.H. (clue: his “Amy Grant & Friends” T-shirt) who had just returned from the second annual Smitty Cruise, Michael W. Smith’s waterborne jamboree that combines a trip around the Caribbean with a week of concerts and sing-a-longs (including “Smitty-oke,” in which audience members demonstrate the difference between themselves and the pros by joining MWS on stage). This year Smitty was joined by Amy Grant and her teenaged daughter with Gary Chapman, who sang a number on her own one night with Amy watching from the sidelines, according to my coffeeshop informant, who says Amy welled up during the performance. Can anyone else verify Amy’s daughter’s debut on the cruise or offer any evidence that she’s being groomed for a career of her own?
