2021 Stellar Awards: Jonathan McReynolds, Maverick City Music and Kierra Sheard bag multiple nominations
Fresh off the heels of his debut movie, multitalented Jonathan ‘Denzel’ McReynolds is making headlines this week with his 8 Stellar Award nods. Topping the 2021 nominee list, McReynolds faces fierce competition from Anthony Brown & group therAPy, Kierra Sheard, Maverick City Music and Pastor Mike Jr, who tie with 7 nominations each.
Taking to Instagram to share the news with his fans, McReynolds posted: “Some will say accolades don’t matter. Maybe not. But I’m grateful for favour with both God and man. (Proverbs 3:4) Those same people pray for a promotion.”
McReynolds was the most celebrated artist at the 2019 Stellar’s nabbing 6 awards for his Grammy nominated album, “Make Room.” McReynolds stiffest competition this year is likely to be current billboard gospel chart topping group, Maverick City Music.
Pencilled for Saturday 7th July, the 36th Annual Stellar awards show heads back home to Nashville TN this year. “Over the past year, Gospel music has taken on an even more pronounced role in the lives of people around the world - dealing with a double, global pandemic of COVID- 19 and social injustice - who have relied on Gospel music as a source of comfort, strength, and encouragement until we can get to better days ahead,” said Don Jackson, Founder of the Stellar Awards.
Themed “Lighting the Way with our Faith, Music & Family,” the pre recorded awards show will feature performances from some of Gospel’s best loved artists and hit our tv screens from 7th August.
