Music Grammy Watch - Jamie Grace

 ATLANTA (AP) - When Jamie Grace performs music, all of the
uncontrollable facial twitches and involuntary body movements
called tics become an afterthought.
     Tourette's syndrome has plagued the 20-year-old Christian singer
for nearly half of her life. But she hasn't allowed the incurable
neurological condition to destroy her faith, and now she's been
nominated for a Grammy award.
     Grace's song "Hold Me," featuring TobyMac, is nominated for
best contemporary Christian music song.
     When she learned of the nomination in a text from fellow Grammy
nominee Mandisa, Grace says she couldn't believe it.
     The homeschooled daughter of Atlanta-area pastors says that
along with continuing her musical career, she wants to help
families with children who have Tourette's and ADHD.
     The 54th annual Grammy Awards ceremony will be held Sunday in
Los Angeles.
