...And the Stellar goes to......

I'm sure that most gospel music fans already know that the 26th Annual Stellar Awards were held this past weekend (January 15, 2011) in Nashville, Tennesse, hosted by Donnie McClurkin.   

 

Hard to believe it, but it has been 26 years since the first Stellar Gospel Music Awards was taped at the Arie Crown Theater in Chicago.  Since then, the Stellar Gospel Music Awards has become the premier Gospel event that recognizes and honors African American Artists.

 

I can remember watching the award show when I was a young boy in school.  I really enjoyed the energy and feeling of the music and the artists as they performed.  I can also remember telling myself, "one day I'll get to meet some of those people".  It took many... many... many years later but that little boy's dreams came true.  I've been fortunate to meet a few Stellar Award winners and performers.

 

When We Speak TV would like to thank the Stellar Gospel Music Awards for continuing to honor and recognize a genre of music that is often overlooked.  (Until there's some issues in your life).  Many nominees and winners work day and night, ministering, praying, and singing to people but are easily overlooked.  Not only that, this is a genre of music that goes all the way back to our ancestors and is still going strong.  Although the styles may change, it is undeniable that the message of Gospel Music will continue to live on... forever!  

 

When We Speak TV would also like to congratulate all the artists, producers, and choirs that took home the Stellar Award.  Continue to make influencial and inspiring music.  If you're never recognized or honored, don't worry because your greatest reward will come from God! 

 His lord said unto him, Well done, [thou] good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
