Reba Grammy's

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.
