Additionally, the 38th edition of the Stellar Awards will premiere on the newly launched Stellar TV between Monday, July 24 and August 6, 2023, as well as air in national broadcast syndication from August 7 through September 10, 2023. Gospel music’s most epic celebration is co-hosted this year by Gospel superstars and multiple Stellar Award winners Tasha Cobbs-Leonard and MNRK’s own, Jonathan McReynolds, who returns to share co-hosting duties for the 2nd year.

MNRK’s Darnell Nolin, Director, Label Services and Marketing, NASHVILLE, shares, “I’m excited as we approach the 38th Annual Stellar Awards to see our genres, colleagues and innvoators get celebrated and recognized. On behalf of both me and the MNRK MUSIC GROUP brand at large, I also celebrate the nominations that our artists received from both the support of industry influencers and their fanbase. To see a variety of those nominated from our roster, including trailblazers and disrupters like Smokie Norful, James Fortune, Todd Dulaney, and newcomer Bishop S.Y Younger, is encouraging that the gospel music genre is here to stay.”
