Joining Ms. Grant, who, with over 30 million units sold remains the best-selling contemporary Christian music singer ever, will be Kip Winger, Lincoln Brewster, Buddy Hyatt and Celica Westbrook, as well as T.G. Sheppard, Danny Gokey and Kelly Lang.  "Artists for Others" will also feature Lisa Cohen of the CNN Freedom Project, Bridget and Don Brewster of AIM, Ken Peterson of 3Strands and artist David Garibaldi.

The event was announced recently at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa when Bill Porter Music presented a special performance of Le Div4s at the hotel, which served as a kickoff for the April 3rd benefit event.  Le Div4s just completed a six-city U.S. tour with Andrea Bocelli and have toured with the maestro worldwide over the past two years.  The group made their premiere in Palm Beach County at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa.

"Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is proud to present Amy Grant and this impressive lineup of musical talent as we help to raise funds for AIM, which rescues children from sex trafficking," reported Eva Hill, president of Britannia Pacific Properties, which owns the AAA Five-Diamond Award property, part of Preferred Hotels and Resorts. 

"'Artists for Others' is our way of giving back to the community," she added.  "The AIM benefit on April 3rd will be the inaugural kickoff for other charitable performances to be held every year at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. Although we are serious about raising funds for AIM, the event will be a fun-filled evening where guests will enjoy a magical night of magnificent music, in an elegant setting -- up close and personal with these talented artists. All of our guest artists are performing at the benefit without a fee because they love children and want to do all that they can to help AIM provide more lifesaving services."

In addition, Ms. Hill noted that the evening will include a cocktail reception with heavy hors d'oeuvres, musical performances and a dessert buffet. 

Ms. Grant, an American singer-songwriter, musician, author, media personality and actress, has had Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 songs, such as "The Next Time I Fall" with Peter Cetera and "Baby Baby."  Heart in Motion is her highest-selling album, with over five million copies sold in the U.S. alone.  She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and has been awarded 25 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards.

"Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is proud to open our doors and raise funds for AIM, which fights trafficking, restores victims and transforms communities," concluded Ms. Hill. "Please mark your calendars and plan to be with us on April 3rd.   We promise it will be an extraordinary evening."

Tickets for the event are $250 per person or $2000 for a VIP table.  Specially-priced hotel accommodations are available for those attending the event.
