As thousands of gospel music industry fans, supporters, artists, execs and more descend upon Nashville, TN, the city is officially buzzing with celebratory energy, exclusive pre-show events and a spirit of great expectations for the 26th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards.
Day number one began with a few groups of exciting gatherings including this year’s highly anticipated Urban Soul Cafe “Access Granted 2011” event held at inside downtown Nashville’s hip Mercy Lounge. Special appearances from artists who are simply best in urban gospel all representing a multitude of top gospel record labels, the scene was extremely energetic as EMI Gospel’s VaShawn Mitchell began the event with his medley of mega-hits including “You’re So Great” and “Nobody Greater.”
