This week saw one of the biggest music awards take place. The 54th Grammy awards held on Sunday night and was presented by ‘girls just wanna have fun’ singer Cyndi Lauper. As we can expect from a from a secular event, there were no shortage of controversy and shocking moments which i do not care to go into.
What really caught my attention and encouraged me was how well the Gospel category did. Firstly Mandisa won her first Grammy award for her ‘Overcomer’ album .The American idol finalist was nominated for best contemporary Christian music and she quite rightly won. That is what you call an overcomer as she went from a reality tv show contestant,finalist and did not even win but then it seems God had a greater plan and it ios so inspiring to see that.
There were many other winners in the night including Tye Tribbett for best Gospel album and Tasha Cobbs who won her first Grammy for ‘break every chain’ which was nominated for the Gospel contemporary music performance.
Miss Tasha Cobbs looked dazzling in her flowing royal blue fish tail dress as she the thanked everybody for ‘taking a chance on a country girl from Jesup Georgia’.
As well as these big wins there were also other well known nominees from Matt Redman,Chris Tomlin,Matt Maher,Natalie Grant and more.
All in all i would say it was an interesting event where Gospel music really triumphed and long may this continue:)
