Christian music star Amy Grant has been tapped to host "Three Wishes," an NBC pilot/special. She and the show's team of experts will make a variety of wishes come true for participants, such as aiding a family with a member's life-threatening medical crisis, helping to save a teacher's job and giving someone a chance to live out a sports fantasy.

Grant says she is not a big TV watcher and doesn't indulge in reality TV programming, but she really liked the concept for "Three Wishes."

"I met with the producers and was captivated by the stories, which I'm not supposed to talk about because it's like telling what the end of the book is," she says. "Everything this show is about are things that are important to me that I invest my personal time and energy in."

Andrew Glassman and Jason Raff, a duo whose credits include NBC's "Average Joe," are the executive producers of "Three Wishes." Glassman says, "While our team is there to help, ultimately, this show will be about people helping people make their wishes and dreams come true."

Production on the pilot began the first week of April. "I told them I don't have any talent in this area, but I was really moved by this," Grant says of the opportunity to do the show.

On the music side, Grant's 20th album, "Rock of Ages ... Hymns & Faith," arrives May 3 on Word/Curb/Warner Bros.
