Kanye West dominates Christian/gospel music nominations in 2020 Billboard Music Awards

Kanye West is among the highest nominated artists in the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, but surprisingly this time his nominations come under a not so familiar genre. 

His  Jesus Is King album grabbed him nine nominations in Christian categories including top Christian artist, top gospel artist, top Christian album, top gospel album and top Christian song.

West also competes against himself for top gospel song, in which “Closed on Sunday,” “Follow God,” “On God” and “Selah” are all nominated.

Top Christian Album:
Bethel Music “Victory: Recorded Live”
Casting Crowns “Only Jesus”
Hillsong United “People”
Skillet “Victorious”
Kanye West “Jesus is King”

Top Gospel Album
Kirk Franklin “Long Live Love”
Donald Lawrence & The Tri-City Singers “Goshen”
William McDowell “The Cry: A Live Worship Experience”
Sunday Service Choir “Jesus Is Born”

Top Christian Song:
Bethel Music, Jonathan David Helser & Melissa Helser “Raise A Hallelujah”
Casting Crowns ft. Matthew West “Nobody”

Showing his love and appreciation to God is nothing new to Kanye West. In fact his hit debut album, ‘College Dropout’  had songs like ‘Through The Wire’ and ‘Jesus Walks’, which showed his reverence to his maker!
