The Stellar Music Awards committee has officially announced Tye Tribbette and Jekalyn Carr as hosts of the 2021 edition of the awards event which is also the 36th consecutive edition slated for July 10. Get the full list of nominees here.
It promises to be a night full of bliss as the gospel industry awards some of the top gospel icons for their contribution to gospel music. It definitely would not be anything short of last year’s memorable virtual concert hosted by the trio host – Kirk Franklin, Jonathan McReynolds and Koryn Hawthorne.
The “Greatest Night in Gospel Music” returns to its roots in Nashville, Tenn., at the elegant Schermerhorn Symphony Center, with live performances by Jonathan McReynolds, JJ Hairston, Pastor Mike, Jr., Maverick City Music, the Clark Sisters, our hosts Jekalyn Carr and Tye Tribbett, and more!
According to the Awards team, the event will be taped on Saturday, July 10, in order to observe protocols for COVID 19. The Stellar Awards recognizes the year’s best performances in the genre, honours Gospel music icons, and acknowledges the accomplishments of individuals instrumental in advocating for the industry.
