Contemporary Christian singer Amy Grant underwent open-heart surgery on Wednesday, June 3, to fix a heart condition that the Grammy Award-winning singer has had since birth, according to her publicist.

Grant’s rep, Velvet Kelm, said that, per the doctor, her surgery “couldn’t have gone better”.

Doctors discovered Grant, 59, had a heart condition called partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (PAPVR) during a routine checkup.

The six-time Grammy winner known for her hits such as, Baby, Baby, Every Heartbeat and That’s What Love is For.

Grant’s sold more than 30 million albums, including her five-time platinum 1991 record “Heart in Motion”, which introduced her to a larger pop audience.
