GRAMMY® Award-winning Gospel star Tamela Mann was named the FAVORITE GOSPEL ARTIST at the 2022 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS, held Sunday, November 20, in Los Angeles.
“What an amazing honor to receive this very special award. I’m so thankful for the love, support, and help of our fans to make this happen. I couldn’t have done it without them,” said Tamela.
Tamela recently wrapped her fall 25+- city Overcomer Tour where she performed her hits and songs from her Overcomer: Deluxe Edition album released last summer on major streaming platforms and through retail outlets.
Heralded as some of the superstar’s best work, Overcomer: Deluxe Edition builds upon the original version’s themes of resilience, strength, purpose and the beauty of faith, with an offering of both all new tracks and intimate live renditions of fan favorites from Overcomer.
Tamela made history as the first gospel artist to chart nine No. 1 singles on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart, with the single “He Did It For Me” taking the top spot. Overcomer: Deluxe Edition is distributed by The Orchard, and available digitally across all major music streaming platforms and in retail outlets. More information on availability may be found here.

Her Billboard No. 1 album Best Days includes the No. 1 platinum single “Take Me to The King” and received Billboard’s “Album of the Decade” for 2010-2019, in the Gospel category.
Tamela’s Billboard No. 1 album, One Way, garnered two No. 1 singles, including “Change Me” and “God Provides,” which earned the singer her first Grammy® Award in 2017. In 2018, Tamela and her husband, NAACP Image® Award winning actor David Mann, released their first book and joint album, Us Against the World. The book won an NAACP Image® Award for Outstanding Literary Work and the album continues to garner top-charting singles including the Urban AC track, “Ups & Downs.”
