Christian Artists Win Big at The Grammy Awards

 

It was a big night for Christian music at Sunday's Grammy Awards! Singer/songwriter Matt Redman took home two trophies- one for Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance for his song, “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord).” And another for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song for “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)," which he shared with fellow songwriter Jonas Myrin. Writing on Twitter following the award Matt said, "We wrote this song for the glory of God, so He gets all the glory today too :)"

Congratulatory messages flooded twitter from several from fellow worship leaders including Chris Tomlin who wrote:"Could not be happier for @matt_redman and @jonasmyrin for the Grammy for 10,000 Reasons...Yes!"

Among the other winners, Gospel artist Lecrae won Best Gospel Album for his album GRAVITY. After winning Lecrae tweeted, "Just won a Grammy. I dedicate it all to the Unashamed fam all over the planet. 1.1.Six-To God be the Glory."

TobyMac took home the award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for his latest release EYE ON IT. "As a teenager writing songs, I never imagined winning a GRAMMY," Toby said, who was headlining Winter Jam in Atlanta. "It is an honor every artist dreams of! I'm truly humbled and so grateful for the amazing talent that surrounds me."
