Amy Grant underwent open heart surgery last June to help correct a condition called PAPVR, a birth defect that doctors discovered during a routine heart checkup. She filled fans in on the news soon after her diagnosis, and she’s been open about the recovery process following her surgery, too, using her experience to remind people to take care of their health and especially to get regular heart checkups.
Now, one year after first receiving her diagnosis, Grant stopped by ABC’s Good Morning America to speak about her recovery and give her first performance since her surgery.
“I feel fantastic,” she relates. “I just have this feeling like this is going to be the best year yet. I love it.”
