In the Press: St. Louis gospel rapper Flame calls Grammy nomination surreal
St. Louis gospel rapper Flame was watching an Everybody Loves Raymond rerun Wednesday with his wife when he found out he was nominated for a Grammy Award for his Our World Redeemed CD.
Flame, a.ka. Marcus Gray, is up for a Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album award, sharing the category with tobyMac, Superchick, Sanctus Real, and After Edmund.
I got a text message from my manager saying I was nominated, and I was in a state of disbelief, says Flame, who resides in Louisville.
He didnt even know the nominations were coming out that day.
