The 63rd Grammy Awards are just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited! The award night will be on the 31st of January 2021. The Grammy Award is arguably the most prestigious and recognized award in the music circles. I would like to imagine that this is something you can add to your CV and would land you a job anywhere!
The Grammy Award started as a bicoastal affair on May 4th 1959. It was a black-tie dinner and awards presentation ceremony which was held at the Grand Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. It has now grown over the years to become the worldwide brand that it is today.
Now let’s get down to business! This year’s nominations list has just come in and the competition is stiff. We have artists like Jonathan McReynolds and Mali Music being nominated for their song “Movin’ On” in the Best Gospel Performance/Song where they are going up against Travis Greene with the song “Won’t Let Go” among others.
On the Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song we have huge songs! The Blessing by Elevation worship, Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes is going up against Sunday Morning by Lecrae featuring Kirk Franklin among others.
Anthony Brown & Group Therapy , Myron Butler, Ricky Dillard, PJ Morton and Kierra Sheard go head to head for the Best Gospel Album. On the other hand, Cody Carnes, Hillsong Young & Free, We The Kingdom, Tauren Wells and Kanye West were nominated for the Best Contemporary Christian Music Album.
Another exciting fact about next year’s 63rd Grammy Awards is the fact that our very own African man, Trevor Noah, will be the host of the night! We can’t wait to see how this all pans out. We wish every single nominee all the best and even more so, we can’t wait to see the day when our very own Kenyan artists will be nominated or even win a Grammy. Our dreams are valid.
