The Christian Rapper won his 2nd Grammy on Sunday’s 2015 Award Show. The award was for the Best Contemporary Christian Song /Performance for his song “Messengers.” He seized the moment to declare the name of Jesus to the audience filled with celebrities:
“You can’t celebrate gifts without celebrating the giver of all gifts, so I want to celebrate Jesus.”
Lecrae, a Texas native who now lives in Atlanta, brought his mother as his date to the star-studded event. He was nominated for 3 awards, which included his first nomination in the rap category where he was up against his friend Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Eminem and Childish Gambino. This was a big deal for him because he would like to be recognized as a mainstream rapper instead of being known as a Christian artist.
On the related news, Kendrick Lamar, on whom we reported last week also won 2 Grammys. Last year, many were disappointed that he took home nothing after being nominated in 6 categories for his widely successful ‘good kid, m.A.A.d. city’ album .
Congratulations all around!
