Stellar Awards

The Stellar Gospel Music Awards celebrated its 37th year honoring excellence in Gospel music during an uplifting weekend of events, concluding with the live-taped ceremony on Saturday, July 16, at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, Georgia.

The 'Get Up! Mornings' crew spoke with Maverick City Music about how it feels to win top honors at the 2021 Stellar Awards and releasing their new song, "Jireh."

Following his appearance during the 2021 Stellar Awards live taping on Saturday (July 10), Kirk Franklin ended his night on an even better note after being surprised with a Gold plaque certification for his "Best Gospel Song" award-winning single, "Love Theory."

You can see it all in action on August 1 when BET airs this year’s show. In the meantime, check out the stunning photos from the Stellar Awards 2021 and get a sneak peek at the winners list below!

The annual Stellar Awards, now in its 36th year, is set to tape on July 10 at the prestigious Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, Tennessee, with two icons in the game of gospel, Tye Tribbett & Jekalyn Carr, set to host the 2021 ceremony.

Donald Lawrence, The Walls Group and Le'Andria Johnson were among the night's other big winners as the show went virutal.

The gospel music award show will premiere on BET this month with Kirk Franklin, Jonathan McReynolds and Koryn Hawthorne as hosts.

It’s one of many events in Las Vegas and around the world that have been cancelled as a health precaution.
