Sarah Téibo and Guvna B lead the nominations for the first ever Tru-Life Gospel Music Awards, which will be held in London in October.
The artists, who have both released high profile albums this year, will feature in awards categories alongside other gospel artists from the UK and abroad such as Tneek, InderPaul Sandhu and Becca Folkes. All categories are open to public vote, with the polls open now.
The Tru-Life Gospel Music Awards is shaping up to be a major event, with a calibre of artists on the night exceeding expectations of a debut awards show. Artists performing at the awards will include Fiona Yorke, Chris Da Ambassada, Volney Morgan & New-Ye, Cal-I Jonel, Sarah Téibo and the newcomer that we’re keen on at the moment – Zion.
The announcement of the nominees comes just days after the release of Sarah Téibo’s second album Keep Walking. It includes collaborations with Muyiwa, Lisa McClendon and Fred Hammond – a huge coup for the British artist. She’s up for three nominations.
Guvna B released his album Hands Are Made for Working and was praised by us for his ability to grow, evolve and be heartfelt with this project. He’s featured on our 2018 Ones to Watch list. He’s also nominated in three categories.
Other names to look out for include Kingdom Choir who sang at the recent royal wedding. They’ll be going head to head in the Choir of the Year category with B Positive Choir who took Britain’s Got Talent by storm this year. Then there’s interminable hit-maker CalledOut Music, who’s up for two awards, and Hope Dealers who recently featured on the BBC 1Xtra documentary about using drill music to bring a positive message to the street.
The Tru-Life Gospel Music Awards takes place on Saturday 13th October at Epainos Ministries, Lichfield Road, London E3 5AT. To cast your votes and to buy tickets for the event, visit http://www.trulifepromotions.co.uk/awards/
