Amy Grant – “Breath of Heaven (Mary’s Song)” – (1992)

Amy Grant, whose career began in Christian music eventually found herself atop the Adult Contemporary scene in the early-1990s. In 1992, she released this Christmas album, Home for Christmas. Strangely, this song was actually a #1 hit on the very popular Christian Radio-Adult Contemporary chart. It’s an original, written by Grant and songwriter Chris Eaton. This album was massively successful, selling over 2.5 million copies as of December 2012. Oh, and yes, I completely realize how strange it is to follow a Godsmack song with a Christian Christmas hit from Amy Grant. But we’re into Christmas music season at least through Christmas.
