Brandon Heath Wins an Emmy and Goes Into Orbit

 Male Vocalist of the Year Brandon Heath added a rare highlight to his growing list of accolades with his recent Emmy Award win, presented to the celebrated songwriter for his blockbuster hit “Give Me Your Eyes.” The song served as the catalyst for Nashville Rescue Mission’s Hunger to Hope 2009 PSA Campaign on the local CBS affiliate.  

  Rounding out Heath’s week was the selection of the award-winning song by NASA as the wake-up call for the Endeavour shuttle crew, on their first day in orbit, in honor of first-time flyer Pilot Terry Virts. Virts invited Heath to join his family as a special guest at the launch from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.   In regards to the NASA wake-up call, Heath adds, “I’m still geeking out over this, it’s the coolest thing ever!”
