Most of the headlines emerging from Sunday night’s Grammy Awards center on well-known mainstream names like Beyonce and Adele, but there were a plethora of other noteworthy performers honored during music’s biggest night.
Among them were some popular Christian and gospel artists who — while they might not get prime time on the Grammy stage — deserve to have their honors recognized.
So, let’s break down some of this year’s winners.
To begin, Hillary Scott & the Scott Family won the “Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song” for their track “Thy Will,” with Hillary Scott and the Scott Family also capturing the “Best Contemporary Christian Music Album” for “Love Remains.”
On the gospel front, Tamela Mann took the “Best Gospel Performance/Song” for “God Provides,” with Kirk Franklin — who wrote Mann’s winning song — also snagging the “Best Gospel Album” category for his record, “Losing My Religion.”
And as Faithwire previously reported, Joey+Rory won “Best Roots Gospel Album” for their album “Hymns.”
That win was particularly emotional, considering that Joey Feek died last year after a tragic battle with cancer, leaving her husband, Rory, to accept the award on the duo’s behalf.
So, there you have it. There are some of the categories you might not have heard about. Go here for a complete list of this year’s Grammy winners.
