GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum singer and songwriter

GAVIN DEGRAW

Hospice of Michigan is excited to welcome GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum singer and songwriter Gavin DeGraw to the Barley, BBQ & Beats stage in Grand Rapids.
Gavin will share his personal hospice experience – and how the support of hospice care helped his family.

ABOUT GAVIN DEGRAW:

GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum singer and songwriter Gavin DeGraw’s inimitable voice and soulful style boldly bloomed on his 2003 platinum-certified full-length debut, Chariot. It included the gold single “Follow Through,” as well as both platinum hits, “Chariot,” and “I Don’t Want To Be.” In 2008, his self-titled second album, Gavin DeGraw, bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 powered by the platinum-selling single “In Love With a Girl.” His gold-certified Sweeter saw him return to the Top 10 as the single “Not Over You” went four times platinum.

Meanwhile, his duet with Colbie Caillat, “We Both Know,” garnered a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Song Written For Visual Media” for Safe Haven. With a front row seat to this wonderfully wild life led by his late parents Lynne and John Wayne, Gavin DeGraw recounts his most meaningful memories and valuable lessons on his most recent seventh full-length offering, Face The River. This past winter, DeGraw released his applauded first-ever Christmas EP, A Classic Christmas. DeGraw is the rare talent who can seamlessly share the stage with Billy Joel and The Allman Brothers or Maroon 5 and Shania Twain with his signature fusion of pop, soul, country, folk and funk.

Not only is DeGraw a distinguished musician, he is a dedicated philanthropist as well, donating his time to multiple charities supporting causes that are dear to him.
