It’s about that time of year again…. The Stellar Award nominations are out…and newcomer, Casey J. is leading the nominations with 11!!!!
The former elementary school teacher from Atlanta has the most of any artist in this year’s pact of nominees.
She is nominated for Artist of the Year and New Artist of the Year for her #1 bestselling debut album “The Truth”.
“I used to think it was the normal way of life because that’s all I saw my grandmother and mother do,” she once said. “I grew up thinking that singing in the church choir is what all kids did because it was my way of life.”
A Casey J fact: She sang as a worship leader at the Fresh Start Church in Duluth on Sunday mornings, and this is where she began to sing Will Reagan’s tune “Fill Me Up” and it received such a positive response that the church’s pastor, Marquis Boone, decided to have Casey J record the song.
Casey J. beat out Charles Jenkins & Fellowship Chicago and singer/guitarist Jonathan McReynolds who each earned ten nominations.
