In wrapping up the “ladies’ week” playlist, inspired by my lovely wife and the many styles she can sing in herself, I should turn to one of the singers I seem to recall her listening to a lot when I was first getting to know her — Amy Grant.

Over the past seven days, we’ve taken in the music of the “First Lady of Song,” the “Queen of Soul,” so why not go with the “Queen of Christian Pop?”

Amy Grant fits right in with the theme of the ladies I’ve been featuring when it comes to versatility.  She got her start in Christian music as a teenager, she’s won a bunch of Christian music awards, she was inducted into the Christian Music Hall of Fame in 2007.  But she’s done well as a crossover artist as well, being part of hit songs in the pop music world.

That crossover success hasn’t been applauded by everyone, and some of the things she’s done and said haven’t always gone over all that well in the Christian community which lends itself to a sad bit of judgmentalism.  But there can be no arguing that she’s helped a lot to bring contemporary Christian music to where it is today.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October that year. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up on a daily basis over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that put us back into the "middle class." But then that job went away, and I took a job as a transit bus driver that put us more in a lower income bracket. Now, I want to blog again on a more regular basis to tell of the kinds of struggles people like us go through as we work toward something better. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
