Gospel artists with true hearts for ministry don't sing to win awards, but to give God glory. And
yet, there are dedicated platforms to celebrate their musical gifts that greatly benefit the body of
Christ and the world.

This year, it seems the spotlight shined most brightly upon Travis Greene and Tamela Mann,
who have touched the masses worldwide.

Each of the singers won big at the 32nd Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards for their chart-
topping projects
The Hill and One Way respectively.

Greene, 33, collected the most awards this year with 7 wins, including the top song, CD, and
male artist categories: Song of the Year ("Made A Way"), Male Vocalist of the Year, CD of the
Year, Contemporary Male Vocalist of the Year, Contemporary CD of the Year, Recorded Music
Packaging of the Year (Art Dir: Annie Stoll), and Praise and Worship CD of the Year.

Mann, was right behind him with 6 wins.


“Thankful. Thankful. Thankful. Family, thank YOU!” Greene wrote on Instagram, expressing
gratitude for the wins. “This wouldn’t be possible without your love and support—celebrate with
me!” he added.

Empowering Everyday Women Ministries indeed celebrates with Greene as well as each winner
