Wednesday, January 17, 2017 (ATLANTA, GA) - - 19 year old GRAMMY® nominated teen sensation Jekalyn Carr has been added to the performance line-up for the 19th Annual NFL Sanctioned Super Bowl Gospel Celebration. Carr will join top Gospel and Christian artists Yolanda Adams, Lecrae, Natalie Grant and CeCe Winans and R&B superstars Lalah Hathaway, Anthony Hamilton and BJ The Chicago Kid to name a few for a star studded event that will be hosted by David and Tamela Mann. The event will take place on Friday, February 3rd at Pastor Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, TX at 7:30pm and will be taped in front of 16,800 attendees. The show will air on Sunday, February 5th at 10a/9a CST on BET/CENTRIC.

Announced yesterday by Central City Productions, Carr earned 5 Stellar Award nominations including top honors for Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for “You’re Bigger.” Additionally, Carr also recieved nominations in the categories of Albertina Walker Female Vocalist of the Year, Traditional Female Vocalist of the Year and Praise & Worship CD of the Year ("The Life Project"). Carr is also slated to perform her chart topping single “You’re Bigger” on the award show which takes place on March 25th in Las Vegas at the Orleans Arena.

"I want to thank my team, radio, media and my supporters for their love over these last couple of months and to eOne for being a vehicle for my latest project," states Jekalyn. "None of this would be possible without you and I'm forever grateful."

Last month, THE RECORDING ACADEMY® announced that Carr, who is an independent artist, received a GRAMMY® nomination in the category of Best Gospel Performance/Song for “You’re Bigger." This is Carr’s first GRAMMY® nomination, and it definitely caps off a remarkable year of firsts for the 19 year old prophetic powerhouse singer. The 59th Annual GRAMMY AWARDS® will take place on Sunday, February 12th in Los Angeles and will air live on CBS. For more information visit www.grammy.com.

The single debuted in the Top 5 on June 6th and landed at #1 on September 14th spending four weeks in that position. The song also spent four weeks on Billboard’s Gospel Digital Songs chart. "You're Bigger" is the first single from Carr’s third album THE LIFE PROJECT (Lunjeal Music Group/eOne) which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums and iTunes Top 200 Digital Christian/Gospel Albums charts. The album also made a significant impact on Billboard’s Combined Christian/Gospel Albums chart (#6), Billboard’s Overall Top Albums Chart (#108) and landed in the Top 40 on iTunes Top 200 Pop Albums Chart.
