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.
