Did Amy Grant Affirm the LGBTQ Community on Apple Music’s Proud Radio?

Trey Pearson and Grace Baldridge Respond

The former lead singer for the Christian rock band Every Day Sunday and current solo artist who identifies as gay, Trey Pearson replied to openly queer artist Grace Baldridge‘s [Semler] Twitter post that promoted the Proud Radio interview, saying, “wow wow @amygrant explicitly saying she is LGBTQ+ affirming on PROUD Radio with @hunterkelly is so huge I’m gonna cry.” Pearson told Baldridge “We had a pretty beautiful conversation at @WildGooseFest a couple years ago. She’s the best. [rainbow emoji] [heart emoji].”

Baldridge released an explicit labeled Christian themed EP under her stage name Semler titled “Preacher’s Kid” that knocked Lauren Daigle‘s “Look Up Child” from the number-one spot on Apple Music’s Christian Albums chart earlier this year. “I wanna grab the #1 spot on the iTunes Christian Music Charts and claim it for anyone who has ever been cast out in the name of God,” she said in a post, asking her followers for help.

The “Preacher’s Kid” lyrics call mission trips “scams” and says they “do more harm than good.” Baldridge writes that she believes in Big Foot more than God because the mythical creature doesn’t hurt anyone, and says she is waiting on a God she can trust. Christian musician Kevin Max of DC Talk praised the album, saying, “Excited for you and for this breakthrough @GraceBaldridge…it’s high time Christian music got a shake up with a message of reality & hope beyond the homogenized CCM…kinda historic, definitely amazing.”
