Amy Grant – “Breath of Heaven” at the Crystal Cathedral
One quintuple-platinum album, one triple-platinum album, one double-platinum album, four platinum albums, and six gold albums. With that much precious medal ornamenting her career, it's easy to see why Amy Grant is such a renowned Christian-music artist. Yet the Augusta native has a reach that spans well beyond the Christian charts. In her 30-year career, she has sold more than 30 million albums, garnered six Grammy awards in categories such as Best Contemporary Album and Best Gospel Performance, and authored tunes that topped Billboard's Hot 100 chart, including “El Shaddai” and “Baby Baby.” Grant also has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But she's not your typical starlet. Onstage, instead of using antics such as smashing her equipment or forcing audience members to form a human stage, she lets her humility shine. Then, her pipes treat listeners to classic tracks as well as hits from her 15th studio album, Somewhere Down the Road.
A yiddish theater, a burlesque house, a meeting place for the Polish Army Veterans Association—the building at 17 Irving Place has filled many roles since its christening in 1860. It wasn't until it became a music venue in the 1970s, though, that it found its true calling. Hosting early concerts by such bands as the Ramones and the Talking Heads, Irving Plaza built a reputation as one of the city's best places to see the next big thing. That reputation has only grown through the years, with Complex recently naming it one of the Top 10 Best Concert Venues in America.
