Atlanta, GA (August 21, 2013) ----- Montell Jordan, along with Victory World Music, was honored with his first Dove nomination this morning since becoming a CCM artist two years ago. Jordan was nominated for his current project, Shake Heaven, which was nominated for Contemporary Gospel/Urban Album of the Year. The 2-disc project features the full CD and a live performance DVD of the album, and showcases guest artists such as Israel Houghton and New Breed, Chris August, Martha Munizzi, among many others. The project reached #3 on Billboard's Gospel Album chart and the title track reached #25 on the AC singles chart. The second single from Shake Heaven, "You Are," features a duet with Chris August and is gaining traction at Christian radio with major adds at WFSH/Atlanta, GA; WBSN/New Orleans, LA; WTRJ/Jacksonville, FL; WDJC/Birmingham, AL and WQME/Indianapolis, IN.

"I was thrilled when I heard the news about the Dove nomination for Shake Heaven and I am so proud of the team at Victory World Music," says Jordan. "I felt like I had come home when I started recording Christian music and when I could sing lyrics to praise Jesus and the good news He brings to everyone. I am so grateful for the support I have received from my peers in the industry and especially to those artists who took part in this current project. And now with the honor of this nomination, I feel so very, very blessed."
