Lecrae receiving a Grammy Award nomination is big news but not too much of a surprise. He is one of the top artists in the Christian sphere. However, Kanye West receiving a nomination with Jesus is King for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album is very shocking!

That is exactly what happened yesterday when the music industry released the nominees. Lecrae’s “Sunday Morning” was nominated for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song up against Kari Jobe “The Blessing,” Tauren Wells “Famous For (I Believe),” and Dolly Parton and Zach Williams “There was Jesus.”

Kanye West Jesus is King is up against Cody Carnes – Run to the Father, Hillsong Young & Free – All My Best Friends, We the Kingdom – Holy Water, and Tauren Wells – Citizen of Heaven.

Both Crae and Kanye are up against some stiff competition so we’ll see who takes it home come award season.
