honoring Lady Tramaine Hawkins, Edwin Hawkins and Kurt Carr.  If your household was anything like mine growing up, then a Hawkins’ record was always in rotation.  Some of my favorites from Lady Tramaine include, The Potter’s House, Goin’ Up Yonder, Changed and Look At Me, to name a few.

A few months ago in Oakland, CA, Bay Area artist came together in true gospel form to pay tribute and honor Lady Tramaine Hawkins for 40 years of music ministry.  She is definitely a Gospel legend.  This evening, I got to catch a clip of Le’Andria Johnson also paying tribute at the BMI Luncheon, singing Changed.  She did an amazing job.  Le’Andria Johnson also won this year’s Stellar Award for the Contemporary Female Artist of the year.  If you haven’t gotten her latest album, The Experience, I would encourage you to do so.  “Revival Fire Fall” is an amazing song.

The Stellar Awards will broadcast live from the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, TN.  You can catch the awards on GMC TV check your local listings for channel.
