Natalie Grant's latest album -- the #1 Billboard debuting 'Be One' (11.13) -- was based on a simple theme: "Why sit around and wait for a miracle. Be one." It's this perspective that helped the "gospel-tinged" (Billboard) vocalist overcome her personal battles and team up with friend Charlotte Gambill -- leader of England's Life Church and author of "The Miracle in the Middle" -- to tour the country and share with others. With their fourth annual, 12-date "Dare to Be" tour, Natalie and Charlotte hope to help women overcome their guilt and worry and be the people they're truly meant to be.
Rooted in a spirit of hope and empowerment, this fully integrated program of worship and teaching challenges women to step into the roles God has called them to.
"This isn't just a night where you're coming to come and get comfortable in your seat and be entertained," shares Natalie. "This is a night where you will encounter the presence of God in such a way that you will leave changed."
Using the lessons from her book, "The Miracle in the Middle," Charlotte equips women with the ability to "find strength in the struggle, the passion to persist, wisdom when they're weary, and joy in the journey." Paired with powerful worship from Natalie -- including hits "Be One" and "Clean" -- Natalie and Charlotte challenge women to accept "The Dare" to aim higher, stretch further, to trust and realize that you can do more.
During each event, Natalie and Charlotte will honor a local woman who has overcome her circumstances and become a miracle in her own life. Part of this recognition includes gifting the honoree with something she needs: rent money, groceries or transportation.
"When one sister overcomes, we all overcome," says Charlotte. "We try to find stories and people who have had the opportunity to wear bitterness or hardship or pain, but had the courage and the strength to say no."
In the midst of criss-crossing the country with "Dare to Be," Natalie will continue to inspire lives with her new tween book series 'Glimmer Girls.' The first two books -- "London Art Chase" and "A Dolphin Wish" -- will release through Zondervan's Faithgirlz brand on Feb. 2, 2016. A link to pre-order is here.
