Spring Beats: PVA 2011 2nd Qtr Nominees - Gospel/R&B

The Second Quarter Rollout continues. Next up is Gospel/R&B. It was a good quarter for entries this time around, with seven entries. Last year there was only seven total eligible entries, so, while there were no eligible entries last quarter, unless we are shutout in the next six months, which I doubt will happen, it should be a good year for Gospel.

The Eligible 2Q Entries for the 2011 Best Album Platinum Vinyl Awards in Gospel/R&B
  • Kirk Franklin - Hello Fear
  • Deitrick Haddon - Church on the Moon
  • Canton Jones - Dominionaire
  • John P. Kee - The Legacy Project
  • Mary Mary - Something Big
  • Smokie Norful - How I Got Over: Songs That Carried Us
  • Alex Williams - Epic Salvation
Haddon and Jones are double nominees, also getting a Rap/Hip Hop nod for the moment. Still to be announced is the second quarter results for Dance, Rap, Alternative and Folk, so keep it locked here.
