LOS ANGELES, Calif. (February 1, 2010) –Multi-talented worship leader, songwriter and recording artist Israel Houghton won his third consecutive GRAMMY® last night during the 52nd Annual GRAMMY® Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Houghton took home the award for “Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album” for his critically-acclaimed CD The Power Of One and also was honored as a nominee for “Best Gospel Song” for “Every Prayer” from The Power Of One.

Previously, Houghton and his powerhouse musical ensemble New Breed won two GRAMMYS in 2008 for A Deeper Level and in 2007 for Alive in South Africa. This year’s win marks his first GRAMMY as a “solo” artist.

“It’s really an honor to be nominated for such a prestigious award,” says Houghton. “And to win is such a surreal experience…I'm so moved that the message in the music was embraced and appreciated.”

The “message” of the genre-blending album is one of hope, redemption and revelation, especially the title track, which expresses Houghton’s passion for social justice.

“I strongly believe that those of us who consider ourselves worshippers need to have a heart for social justice,” says Houghton who will be in Toronto for a Haiti benefit concert on Feb. 12.

In addition to his career as a recording artist, Israel Houghton is a worship leader at Houston’s Lakewood Church and a spokesman for international relief agency World Vision. He is the recipient of six Dove Awards, two Stellar Awards, a Soul Train Award and three GRAMMY Awards. Additional information is available at and
