Integrity Music worship artist Noel Robinson nominated for MOBO award
Renowned Integrity Music worship leader Noel Robinson is up for his fifth MOBO nomination in twenty years. “For a worship leader whose heart is more about people than it is about awards it’s such blessing to be recognised,” he said. In 2014, Noel became the first Afro-Carribean to sign an artist deal with Integrity Music, a feat he described as being a door-opener to a new generation.
Noels unique blend of worship, CCM, pop and gospel has endeared him to cross-cultural audiences across the globe. Whether leading thousands in worship at a Morris Cerullo event or hundreds at a small community church, Noels vision remains singular – to see the body of Christ come together in worship, intercession, and unity. Noel’s music and ministry transcends time. Whilst several of his industry peers have traded in their mics, Noel continues to reinvent his music thereby remaining relevant, as evidenced by his 2020 MOBO nomination.
Juliette Fletch, Principal founder of GMIA had this to say: “What is significant is that Noel has supported many acts that have been nominated for MOBO’s over the years. Be it Guvna B, Faithchild, Evans Ogboi, or Anastasia Baker, Noel has either contributed to their recordings or performed with them. He has been that role model for a very long sustained period and has led the way globally for gospel music over the years. He speaks an international music language and is therefore able to cut across. I think he’s got a phenomenal body of work and after 5 nominations it would be great to finally see him win a MOBO. For me he’s my number 1 ticket for the MOBO award this year.”
The millennials dominate this year’s MOBO Best gospel act category, with CalledOut Music, Shekinah and Guvna B all up for the gong. Can Noel sway the voting in his favour? Tune in to the MOBO’s on the 9th December to find out.
