Jekalyn Carr shares the Red Carpet with her dad.
Los Angeles, CA – Fresh on the 59th Annual Grammy Awards Red carpet in the city of angels is Jekalyn Carr and her manager and dad Allen Carr. The two attended the 59th Annual Grammy Awards as a first-time nominee in the category of Best Gospel Performance/Song. At 19, Carr joins an elite club of entertainers who have received a Grammy nomination at such a young age. The esteemed list of nominees under the age of 20, in the history of the illustrious award, includes Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Leann Rimes, and Avril Lavigne, and other internationally renowned megastars.
“You’re Bigger,” the song for which Carr is nominated, has now spent thirty-four weeks in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Songs chart, including four weeks in the coveted #1 spot, and currently residing at #4. The song, a proclamation of faith and hope, has been a mainstay on the charts, and on the radio, since its release last year, garnering Carr her first #1 single, fueling her first #1 album, and now adding another first to the list, in Carr’s Grammy nomination.
Congratulations to Jekalyn Carr and thank you for representing the Kingdom so well!
