Well I asked for your votes and they came in from all over the place. Here are your choices for the best in Gospel for 2007.
Best Gospel Artists Male Kirk Franklin This is the second year that he has been voted the best by Bellaonline readers! The top selling Gospel artists of all time...he is simply the best when it comes to inspiring everyone from the 69 year old grannies to the 3 year old pre-schoolers. Love Ya Kirk!
Best Gospel Artist Female Yolanda Adams One reader summed it up..."When it comes to Yolanda she wins just for being the class act that she is...I love listening to her morning show and to her songs..." That says it all.
Best New Artist Dewayne Woods Although his song Let Go was not on the list of nominees for Bellaonline (none of my writer friends suggested it) it was enough to win him the votes from my readers for Best New Artist...go figure..smile Talking with him about his triumph over HIV was one of the most powerful moments of my life. My article on him is still one of the top read articles on my site. He is an inspiration for millions and I'm glad I had the chance to interview him.
Best Gospel Song for 2007 Praise on the Inside-JMoss What can you say about this song...simply a good praise tune if there ever was one. We just love it.
So that's it for the Best of 2007...can't wait to see what God has in store for 2008! Happy New Year to you all and thanks to everyone who voted.
