With a groundbreaking three-decade career boasting chart-topping recordings and genre-defining hit singles, GRAMMY-nominated, Dove Award-winning Christian music trailblazers Point of Grace were recently honored by fans, family, and fellow artists during their annual Circle of Friends Weekend in Franklin, Tennessee.
 
The 30th anniversary celebration featured video tributes from Little Big Town, Amy Grant, CeCe Winans, and Michael W. Smith, among others, while Centricity Music senior vice president of A&R John Mays--a former Word Records executive instrumental in Point of Grace's launch and subsequent success--presented plaques to group members Shelley Breen, Leigh Cappillino and Denise Jones commemorating major milestones in the vocal ensemble's career to date.  
 
Since the release of their watershed self-titled debut in 1993, Point of Grace has become one of the Top 10 best-selling artists in the history of Christian music. With 27 #1 singles--including 24 consecutive chart-topping hits, a number unmatched by any artist in any genre--Point of Grace's 22-album discography includes two Platinum and five Gold-certified projects, as well as 8 million career album sales, among numerous other accomplishments.  
 
Further adding to their accolades, Point of Grace's latest set, Turn Your Eyes (Songs We Love, Songs You Know) Volume II, recently took home the Dove Award for Inspirational Album of the Year. Debuting in the Top 10 on Billboard's Top Christian/Gospel Albums chart following its release in April, the Fervent Records (Curb | Word Entertainment) project was produced by Cindy Morgan and features Point of Grace's signature take on a range of Christian music classics and new selections, including Rich Mullins' iconic "Awesome God" and the roots/pop original "At The Table." 

"It's been a wonderful journey so far," shares Point of Grace founding member Shelley Breen. "Sometimes onstage, I become overwhelmed with gratefulness that God has allowed us to continue to travel and sing for 30 years. We have all matured so much--not only in age but in faith--and we're more convinced than ever that nothing is better than singing about Jesus." 
 
"Although we've loved reflecting and celebrating, we couldn't be more excited about what's to come," says Point of Grace's Leigh Cappillino. "We've been writing new songs with some dear friends, and we're eager to share those with the world soon. The next chapter for Point of Grace has begun!"  
 
Capping a milestone year, Point of Grace is currently bringing their Gloria: The Christmas Tour to 11 cities across the country. Hosted by Andrew Greer with very special guest Mark Schultz, the popular holiday outing has already played to multiple sold-out crowds. Kicking off last month in Troy, Ohio, the tour stops in Waco, Texas; Deland, Florida; and Columbia, Tennessee, among other locations, before concluding on December 19 in Augusta, Georgia. 
 
Earlier this month, Point of Grace took their signature sounds of the season to the Arkansas Governor's Mansion in Little Rock, performing at an event hosted by Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The trio was also recently featured as part of the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove's "Christmas at The Cove" concert series in Asheville, North Carolina.
