FEBRUARY 21ST MUSICAL PERFORMANCE:
Steven Curtis Chapman
After starting his career in the late 1980s as a singer-songwriter of contemporary Christian music, Chapman has since been recognized as one of the most prolific singers in the genre, releasing more than 20 albums. Chapman has also won five Grammy awards and 58 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, more than any other artist in history. His seven “Artist of the Year” Dove Awards, his latest in 2009, are also an industry record. As of 2007, Chapman has sold more than 10 million albums and has eight RIAA-certified Gold or Platinum albums.
FEBRUARY 14th MUSICAL PERFORMANCES:
Grammy-award winner Lecrae made history with his seventh studio album, Anomaly, when it debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart and also #1 on the Digital Album, Rap Album, Christian Album and Gospel Album charts. Anomaly is the sixth No. 1 album for Lecrae. He’s also nominated for three Grammys this year, and he just performed on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. He is a major influence in the industry, has legions of fans, and has performed at the BET Experience, co-hosted The Dove Awards, co-headlined the highest ticketed tour in the country (Winter Jam) and received a nomination for Best Impact Track at this year’s BET Hip Hop Awards.
Dove Award-winning artist and Season 11 American Idol finalist Colton Dixon released Anchor, his highly anticipated sophomore album, last year. Making a splash in its first week, Anchor debuted at No. 1 on four charts. This was Dixon’s second No. 1 album debut, following in the footsteps of his successful debut LP, A Messenger, which set the record for biggest first-week sales by a new solo Christian act. A Messenger was the No. 1 selling album of 2013 by a new Christian artist and the No. 9 best-selling album of 2013 in the Christian genre overall.
