Two Christmases ago, Point of Grace and guest Scott Krippayne came to the Lyric Opera House in Baltimore for the Winter Wonderland Tour. It was a big affair and felt much like an old TV Christmas special: gorgeous set, Christmas feeling, and fantastic music. This year, they were back with a stripped down version. Much can happen in two years. In 2007, Scott Krippayne wrote "This Is My Now," selected by American Idol to be sung by Jordan Sparks and Blake Lewis on the finale episode of American Idol. Heather Payne, longtime member of Point of Grace, had her 4th child and decided to retire. This leaves us with Shelley, Denise, and Leigh, who are seeing a resurgence of Point of Grace thanks to their song, "How You Live." It's taken off at country radio (even though they are not a country trio and don't sound it) and opening doors they've never gone through. This concert was an opportunity to celebrate Christmas, play some #1 hits from their 17 years, and get acquainted with new fans.
