NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Contemporary Christian singer Amy Grant has had open heart surgery to fix a heart condition she has had since birth.

A publicist for the singer says doctors discovered the condition during a routine checkup. Velvet Kelm says the surgery was Wednesday.

Grant is married to country singer Vince Gill and is a six-time Grammy winner with hits like “Baby, Baby,” and “That's What Love is For." She’s sold more than 30 million albums, including her 5-times platinum 1991 record “Heart in Motion,” that introduced her to a larger pop audience.
