Today, nine-time GRAMMY Award nominee and Curb | Word Entertainment artist Natalie Grant has released “We Will Stand” with guest vocalists pop hitmaker Tauren Wells, Gospel sensation Jekalyn Carr, and chart-topping family trio CAIN.

CCM Magazine has named the song as one of the top 100 Contemporary Christian Music songs of all time.

Listen to “We Will Stand” HERE.
“I grew up listening to Russ Taff, first with The Imperials and then as he became a solo artist,” shares Grant. “This song takes me back – from singing it in church to singing in the car with my family on road trips. What’s so amazing to me is how relevant this message still is. These lyrics could have been written today. I’m so grateful for Tauren, Jekalyn and CAIN – what they’ve contributed will help bring this song to life for a whole new generation.”
