Second Annual Premier Gospel Awards Held at the House on the Rock Church

ON SONG: Volney Morgan and Ne Ye on stage collecting their award.

Evening of glitz and glamour serves as reminder that UK gospel scene continues to flourish

The House on the Rock church was a fitting venue for the second annual Premier Gospel Awards, a key event in the UK gospel calendar.

A capacity crowd was present in the 900-seater church, and it comprised music fans alongside the movers and shakers of the UK gospel scene, plus Premier Gospel presenters.

Tolu Adepegba, otherwise known as Lady T, hosted the night alongside a group of guys known as The Compozers, Christians whose production credits include some of the world’s top artists.

The audience was treated to some inspiring performances and speeches throughout the awards. The choir of the moment, Volney Morgan and New-Ye, opened with a lively rendition of their signature song After All.

That was followed by the first awards presentation of the night, Best Female Gospel Act which went to Lurine Cato for the second year running.

Other winners during the evening included a very surprised Leke, whose single Unstoppable won the Premier Gospel Award for Best Song, his first ever award. Purist Ogboi, wife of MOBO award winner Evans, won the award for Best Newcomer. She also performed and Volney Morgan and New- Ye won Best Choir of the Year for a second year in a row. This time, however, when he went to collect the award, he had his choir, wife and young son in tow.
