From time to time, it's our privilege to introduce you to the incredible talent within our Grove Community of artists. Our goal is to showcase artists with a command of their craft and who present their work with grace-filled, powerful artistry. And what better time of year than Christmas to present the music of the season with three musicians whose lives and art we love.
SUPPORT OUR ARTISTS: Yes, whether you are involved in our local Grove community here in Southern California or you are a part of our Grove family across the nation and world, I'd like to invite you to support the musical careers of AJ DeGrasse, Kim Johnson & Elizabeth Hunnicutt by purchasing their music. Not only will you love it, so will your friends and family too. Each artist receives the full proceeds of your purchase.
So, do without one of those expensive, high-caloric mocha-frappo-latte-fatte drinks and plop down $5 or $10 for a music CD that will enrich your heart and soul this Christmas. We personally know and love AJ, Kim and Elizabeth. We know they wrote this music to lead you close to Christ this Christmas. AJ & Kim just played last night at The Grove Christmas party and oh my...!
So come! Come Emmanuel! In music. In lyric. In keys, guitar, voice and drums. Let the music of your artists draw us closer to you.
The Bells of Good Will
AJ has released his first new recorded collection in 3 years - and his first ever especially crafted for the Christmas season. Featuring four new original songs as well as classics like 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas'', AJ calls upon the great playmanship of a cast of musicians from the AJ DeGrasse Trio and beyond. Based in Southern California, AJ's looks forward to sharing stories from his latest album for the Christmas holiday -- The Bells of Good Will.

Elizabeth Hunnicutt’s passion for authenticity, faith, and justice is a constant theme throughout her music. This passion is one of the many reasons her sound and heart have garnered her an extremely broad and diverse audience. As a true artist, when experiencing the beautiful, confusing, and sometimes tragic journey of life, Elizabeth responds the only way she knows how, through song. Her latest project, The Arrival, is a beautifully woven-together masterpiece of songs of Advent and Christmas.
