Track Listing Announced For 30th Anniversary Stellar Gospel Music Awards Anniversary CD‏

Stellar Awards

Releasing on March 31st is the highly anticipated collection "Stellar Awards 30th Anniversary 1985-2015" (Habakkuk Music). This album gathers some of the best songs featured on the award shows including Gospel hits by the Clark Sisters, Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary and others.

"These are just a few of the gospel songs and artists that have not only made an impact in gospel music but within the music industry at large, " says April Chandler, President of Habakkuk Music. "It was extremely difficult to narrow the list down but we feel this is a great introduction to the music that's been celebrated at the Stellar Gospel Music Awards from the contemporary sounds of Kirk Franklin to the old school sound of Shirley Caesar."
