NOMINATIONS for the eighth edition of the World Gospel PowerHouse-organised SABC Crown Gospel Music awards opened on Saturday.

This year’s awards, at the Durban International Convention Centre on 15 November, will be hosted with the theme “The Higher Level, The New Order­, The New Beginning”, as represented by the number eight.

Last year’s awards saw gospel greats and the underdogs being honoured with a well-deserved crown. Performances were nothing short of roof-raising and the fashion was in true Crowns style.

In a press release Crowns founder and executive producer, Zanele Mbokazi said: “We are ready for the eighth edition of the Crowns. Bigger, better, moving from glory to glory.”

Nominations officially opened on 1 August, and will close on 1 October at midnight.

Gospel music artists - musicians, engineers, comedians, poets, producers, writers, radio and TV programmes and record companies - who want to enter the Crowns can access the nomination form from the World Gospel Powerhouse offices or website.

Nominations are also open to gospel artists in all African countries.

Event manager Zama Mkhize said that while the tickets will only go on sale at Computicket at the end of August, “we have a new category for VVIPs, and these are for the first five rows. They will only be available from our offices at R1 500.

“These are purely on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Those who want to ‘jump the queue’ must call 031 303 1950.”

The 8th SABC Crown Gospel Music Awards is sponsored by the KZN government, SABC, eThekwini Municipality and Drum, among others­.
