Faith Hill (born Audrey Faith Perry; September 21, 1967) is an American country pop singer and occasional actress. She is known both for her commercial success and her marriage to country star Tim McGraw, with whom she has recorded several duets. Her voice type is a mezzo-soprano. Hill has sold more than 40 million records worldwide.
Hill's first two albums, Take Me as I Am (1993) and It Matters to Me (1995), established her as a popular country singer. The pair placed a combined three No. 1's on Billboard's country charts and each received multi-platinum certifications in the U.S. But the release of her next two albums, Faith (1998) and Breathe (1999), brought Hill mainstream, crossover and international success, by achieving high positions and huge sales globally. Faith spawned her first international hit, "This Kiss", and went multi-platinum in various countries. Breathe became her best-selling album to date and one of the best-selling country albums of all time, by being buoyed by the huge crossover success of her best known single, "Breathe". It went multi-platinum in several countries around the world and earned Hill three Grammy Awards, including Best Country Album. In 2001, she recorded "There You'll Be" for the soundtrack of the movie Pearl Harbor and the song became an international success and her best-selling single in Europe. Hill's next two albums, Cry (2002) and Fireflies (2005), kept her mainstream popularity. The former went multi-platinum and spawned another crossover single, "Cry", which won Hill a Grammy Award. The latter went multi-platinum as well, bolstered by the success of the singles "Mississippi Girl" and "Like We Never Loved at All", which earned her another Grammy Award.
