19-Year-Old Grammy Nominee Jekalyn Carr Heads to the Super Bowl Along With the Atlanta Falcons!


Hello World,

Now that the home team, the Atlanta Falcons of the 5th Congressional District (Shout out to Congressman & Civil Rights Hero John Lewis), is headed to the Super Bowl in Houston on Sunday, Feb. 5, of course, I had to let y’all know about some of the Gospel-themed activities during the celebration!

19- year-old GRAMMY® nominated teen sensation Jekalyn Carr has been added to the performance line-up for the 19th Annual NFL Sanctioned Super Bowl Gospel Celebration. Carr will join top Gospel and Christian artists Yolanda Adams, Lecrae, Natalie Grant and CeCe Winans and R&B superstars Lalah Hathaway, Anthony Hamilton and BJ The Chicago Kid to name a few for a star-studded event that will be hosted by David and Tamela Mann. The event will take place on Friday, February 3rd at Lakewood Church in Houston, TX at 7:30pm and will be taped in front of 16,800 attendees. The show will air on Sunday, February 5th at 10a/9a CST on BET/CENTRIC.

j-carrCarr earned 5 Stellar Award nominations including top honors for Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for “You’re Bigger.” Additionally, Carr also recieved nominations in the categories of Albertina Walker Female Vocalist of the Year, Traditional Female Vocalist of the Year and Praise & Worship CD of the Year (“The Life Project”). Carr is also slated to perform her chart topping single “You’re Bigger” on the award show which takes place on March 25th in Las Vegas at the Orleans Arena.

“I want to thank my team, radio, media and my supporters for their love over these last couple of months and to eOne for being a vehicle for my latest project,” says Jekalyn. “None of this would be possible without you and I’m forever grateful.”

Last month, THE RECORDING ACADEMY® announced that Carr, who is an independent artist, received a GRAMMY® nomination in the category of Best Gospel Performance/Song for “You’re Bigger.” This is Carr’s first GRAMMY® nomination, and it definitely caps off a remarkable year of firsts for the 19 year old prophetic powerhouse singer. The 59th Annual GRAMMY AWARDS® will take place on Sunday, February 12th in Los Angeles and will air live on CBS.
