Sensational singer and band musician Amy Grant recently had to undergo open-heart surgery to correct a rare heart condition called partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (PAPVR).

This condition causes oxygen-rich blood to flow back to the lungs instead of other parts of the body. While the condition was asymptomatic and she had it since birth, Amy needed to have surgery done to correct it and prevent any issues in the future.

In February, the "Heart Awareness Month," Amy told fans that her doctors had discovered she had a rare heart condition since birth after conducting a battery of tests.

She also had five platinum record sales in 1991.

Grant noted that she was going to take time off from concerts and camp trips to take care of her health and revealing she was going to undergo surgery.
