The 2nd of the UK’s most prestigious and respected Gospel music awards is back. The Premier Gospel Awards will take place on 22nd April this year and is looking to be bigger and juicier than it’s debut.
The award recognises and celebrates achievements in Gospel music in the UK under 9 categories. Best Newcomer and Best International are up for public vote whilst the others will be judged by a special panel.
We were happy to see that some of the artists we’re excited about for 2017 have been nominated. Artists such as RnB singer “Theon” and new hip hop kid on the block “Temzi’ features in the Best Newcomer category. We were certainly not surprised to see “Volney Morgan and New Ye” up for Best Choir list…standard. And it’s really nice to see “Jahmene Douglas” recognised in the Best Male and Best Song categories.
