On August 23, 2023, nine-time GRAMMY Award nominee and Curb | Word Entertainment artist Natalie Grant will have the distinct honor of performing the National Anthem at the first Republican Debate in Milwaukee, WI. As an artist, who has toured the world over, Grant has seen the power that music has, to bring people together regardless of their politics.
“This isn’t about endorsing a candidate or a party,” said Grant. “I simply love this country, and I love what our anthem represents. At a time when public faith in our democracy is low, I’m excited to be a part of the democratic process by doing what I do best – and that’s performing. I’ve had the distinct privilege of singing at events for both Republicans and Democrats in the past, and this is no different. It’s a privilege.”
Grant is set to take the stage to perform her soulful interpretation of the national anthem, a role that she has had before at the 2022 College Football National Championship Game.
The first Republican Debate will air live on FOX from 9 pm – 11 pm EST.
