On Gospel’s biggest night, Pastor Mike, Jr. took home coveted Stellar Award statues for Best New Artist of the Year and Best Hip Hop/Rap Album of the Year.
“There was rejoicing in my home and probably all over the city of Birmingham”, states the singer/songwriter and pastor of Birmingham based Rock City Church, one of the fastest growing congregations in the nation. “I owe a debt of gratitude to God first and foremost, to Kerry Douglas and the team at Blacksmoke for all of their efforts, to my staff, my wife and kids, my church family and everyone whose lives have been touched by the message that God gave me. This has exceeded my expectations and I’m excited about what else God has in store.”
