At the 2021 BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Music Awards, which were announced on Monday (June 7), Donald Lawrence and Sir the Baptist were being honored. The song "Deliver Me (This Is My Exodus)," written by Donald Lawrence and Sir the Baptist, was awarded song of the year. Performed by Lawrence and the Tri-City Singers with Le'Andria Johnson, the song speaks about how God delivers us from our "exodus," such as our own sins, additions and bondages.
Upon hearing his win, Lawrence responds with gratitude, "Thank you to my @bmi family." This is the eighth BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Award for Lawrence; the first for Sir the Baptist. Lawrence was previously awarded gospel song of the year in 2015 for "The Gift" and was also one of the 2009 Trailblazers of Gospel Music honorees.
Watch Sir the Baptist give a special, exclusive performance of the Song of the Year, "Deliver Me (This is My Exodus)" as part of the 2021 BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Music Awards.
