Lecrae’s historic year continues at Soul Train Awards
This past weekend, Lecrae won his second Soul Train Award and his eighth major honor of 2015.
In 2014, Lecrae won Best Gospel and/or Inspirational Song for featuring on Erica Campbell’s song “Help.” And this year, he earned the honor again for his song “All I Need is You,” which had already received a Grammy nomination and Dove Award this year.
“The inspirational rapper preaches once again!” the Soul Train Awards wrote. “This time the sermon is about going through tough times but remembering that God is by your side. That continuous assurance is sure to be our comfort in those rough patches of life!”
Other nominees for the award included Erica Campbell’s “More Love,” Fred Hammond’s “I Will Trust,” Kirk Franklin’s “Wanna Be Happy?” and Marvin Sapp’s “Yes You Can.”
The sum of Lecrae’s major award wins in 2015 has turned into the most decorated calendar year for an individual artist in Christian hip-hop history.
