Music's big night honored a number of Christian artists featured at Aleteia
Sunday’s Grammy Awards were typically topical and enlivened by standout performances. While today’s buzz is about how Bruno Mars walked away with 6 trophies — including album of the year (24K Magic), record of the year (24K Magic) and song of the year (That’s What I Like) — there were many other winners who’s hard work deserves recognition.
The Gospel/Contemporary Christian music category was full of popular Christian artists frequently featured here at Aleteia, including Hillsong Worship, MercyMe, CeCe Winans, and Matt Maher just to name a few. Amid such immense talents, it had to be hard to pick a winner, but here is how the awards played out in the faith categories:
Best Gospel Performance/Song: “Never Have to Be Alone” — CeCe Winans; Dwan Hill & Alvin Love III, songwriters
Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song: “What a Beautiful Name” — Hillsong Worship; Ben Fielding & Brooke Ligertwood, songwriters
Best Gospel Album: “Let Them Fall in Love” — CeCe Winans
Best Contemporary Christian Music Album: “Chain Breaker” — Zach Williams
Best Roots Gospel Album: “Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope” — Reba McEntire
While Matt Maher did not go home with a trophy this year, he was named the 8th best dressed man at the 2018 Grammy Awards, by Esquire magazine.
