After 20 years, another Christian group is making history as they perform at the Grammy Awards. And the Maverick City Music is giving all the glory to Jesus.
Christian Group Maverick City Music
Maverick City Music is known popularly for its powerful worship music like “Jireh,” “Man Of Your Word,” and “Wait On You,” which Justin Bieber once shared in one of his Instagram posts. These songs they shared with the world have deeply ministered to millions. And no wonder the Grammys took notice.
Today, the Christian group is giving all the glory to God as they perform during the 64th annual Grammy Awards. The group is also “nominated in all four categories across the two genres,” according to Faithwire’s report. The Grammy Awards nominated Maverick City Music for “Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song, Best Gospel Performance/Song, Best Gospel Album for Jubilee: Juneteenth Edition, and Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for Old Church Basement with Elevation Worship.”
What’s more, is that they are the first Gospel artist in 20 years to be televised at the prominent awards ceremony. According to Relevant Magazine, the last one was in 2002—”Brian McKnight, Al Green, Hezekiah Walker, and Cece Winans.”
“Blessed is an understatement for how we feel about all #Jireh is doing in this moment,” said Maverick City Music. “We’re making history. We truly feel that we have been placed here for such a time as this. And are excited to continue to share this journey with you all!”
The Christian artist will perform “Jireh” on stage.
In a report by CBN News, the group was recognized in 2018 after Christian artists came together to create music for God. When they recorded music, they never expected would land them in the limelight. But above all, they are grateful for how God used their songs to minister to millions.
“What we did not intend to happen, happened in a major way,” one of the artists, Chandler Moore, said in an interview with KGPE-TV. “We became this thing called Maverick City Music. What was just writing sessions turned into a thing that now the world is getting a chance to hear. And we’re on a ride that we didn’t prepare for. A ride that we didn’t really set out to be on. But we’re having so much fun and now two years later we’re doing a tour which is insane.”
