The Bible says that we should render “honour to whom honour is due” (Romans 13:7). If you’ve been blessed by good traditional gospel music, you’ve not only listened to it - you’ve probably thought about it, too – thought about how it blesses your soul.
In that spirit, Faith Music Radio would like to honor the people who share their God-given gifts with the world – NOT just to applaud their talent, but rather to recognize the joy their hard work has brought to YOU, the listener. That’s why we’re asking you to take a seat among our panel of judges in the 2016 Faith Music Awards! We want your help during phase one of our process: the nominating process.
Faith Music Missions has assembled a list from the music produced at our studios last year. This list represents the works qualified for nomination from 2016. All of these can be found in the Faith Music Missions library. Through February 28, you’ll be able to nominate your favorites in the categories below. You can do this by simply previewing the tracks (details below), and e-mailing us. Please state the category of your nominee in the subject line when you contact us.
TOP ALBUM - This category is fairly self-explanatory: you evaluate the album based on its strengths as a complete and self-standing work. In your mind, every track shines!
TOP SONG - In contrast to the category below, this choice must be a gospel “standard” or classic; your selection will be the stand-out standard for 2016 in that category!
TOP ORIGINAL SONG - To qualify, this will be a song that has never before been recorded on any other label.
TOP SOLO SONG - Background vocals will be allowed, but each song in this category will be a stand-alone solo (vocal) piece.
TOP GROUP SONG - Group is defined as any song sung by two or more people.
- Listener voting: February 1-28
- Nominations announced: March 3
- Nominees featured on FMR: March 6-April 4
- Winners Announced: April 5
