Also, American Gospel singer Gloria Gaynor won Best Roots/Gospel Album for Testimony. She said while on Grammy stage, “I want to first thank my Lord and Savior, Christ, Jesus, for the gifts, talents and abilities that I’ve been given. With which to make the strides that I’ve made in my life and my career and to bring forth some music that tells of the mercy, the grace, the love, the faithfulness, the availability of God.”
“While sitting there, I was thinking to myself, we all think from time to time and say ‘Oh, that dress is to die for. That song is to die for. This is to die for. Well, I can’t tell you how blessed I feel to know that He thought I was to die for. He thought you were to die for. Think about that,” the Grammy winner boldly said, preaching the Gospel.
