The 2024 GRAMMYS: Gospel Genre Perspective

The Annual Grammy Awards is the biggest and most anticipated event in the history of music and this year was the 66th time it had been organised. This year’s Grammys happened on the 5th of February 2024 with the Premiere Ceremony happening on the 4th of February, all in an attempt to recognise and appreciate the amazing work that has been done in all forms in the music industry from October 1, 2022, to September 15, 2023.

 As such, the Gospel genre forms part of the many categories that received nominations and awards in the 66th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony. This particular category was expanded and made distinct in 2012 when the Recording Academy did a complete restructuring of the Grammy Awards categories by putting a distinction between the Best Gospel Album category and the Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) category. This complete overhaul emphasised the importance of recognising the various forms of talent within the gospel music genre.  This year, the Grammys saw five different categories in the gospel music industry with over 20 nominees ranging from well-seasoned artists to fairly new artists who have undoubtedly done fantastic work within the time frame. 

Interestingly, after not winning any awards last year and expressing his frustration on social media, Tye Tribbett went home this year with the award for Best Gospel Album with his album All Things New (Live in Orlando).  In addition, Kirk Franklin received his 20th Grammy for his song All Things under the Best Gospel Performance/Song, The Blind Boys of Alabama received a Grammy for their album Echoes of the South under the Best Roots Gospel Album while Lecrae went home with two Grammys under the Contemporary Christian Music Album and Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song with his songs Church Clothes 4 and Your Power featuring Tasha Cobbs Leonard respectively. 

Although gospel music fans expressed their appreciation for and to those who won awards in the gospel categories, some also lamented the fact that the performance of the gospel music legend, Kirk Franklin was not televised for all to see. Kirk Franklin’s amazing performance happened in the Grammy Awards Premiere which happens hours before the main ceremony. Some fans found it problematic that the only gospel performance in the entire awards ceremony was not televised and called for a better approach next year. Erica Campbell also lost two Grammy awards to Kirk Franklin and Tye Tribbett despite expressing her absolute frustration of losing last year. However, her husband, Warryn Campbell wrote on his Instagram that even though he is disappointed ‘there are no two better people to lose to’ than Kirk Franklin and Tye Tribbett


The 66th Annual Grammy Awards was hosted by comedian, Mr Trevor Noah. Also present at the event were other popular gospel artists including Maverick City Music, Naomi Raine, Blessing Offor, Lauren Daigle, and Da’T.R.U.T.H.
