The world’s first and leading televised Gospel music awards is back with their 31st ceremony. The nominees were announced a few days ago with 28 categories for music and a further 6 categories dedicated to Gospel Radio Stations.
For the most part, the nominations carry some of the names you would expect and some that we think you would be very pleased to see such as: Travis Greene, Jonathan McReynolds and Casey J. However, based on the nominations alone it has to be said that the 2015 – 2016 Stellar Awards is all about Anthony Brown & Group Therapy. With his latest album ‘Everyday Jesus’ released back in July 2015, he has managed to bag himself 9 of the 28 Gospel music related categories. We call that ‘Cleaning Up!’
Here are the categories Anthony Brown & Group Therapy have received nominations for:
- Artist of the Year
- Song of the Year
- Male vocalist of the Year
- Group/Duo of the Year
- CD of the Year
- Producer of the Year
- Contemporary Group of the Year
- Contemporary male vocalist of the Year
- Contemporary CD of the Year
Congratulations to Anthony Brown and his team. You could probably hitch your bets that he’ll be going home with one or 2 Stellar Awards for sure.
But he isn’t the only one that did very well in terms of nominations this year. Erica Campbell unsurprisingly has been nominated for 6 categories including Artists of the Year, CD of the Year and Contemporary Female Vocalist of the Year. Erica is also in the Albertina Walker Female Vocalist of the Year, where her sister Tina Campbell has also received a nomination. The results of that particular category should be interesting.
Both Jonathon McReynolds and Israel Houghton received 4 nominations each. Again, no surprises there.
The 31st Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards will take place on Saturday 20th February 2016 – not too long to wait to find out who this year’s winner will be.
