  1. Wow! Congratulations to everyone!!!

  2. Congratulations to all the winners. I was cheering for Bro Earnest Pugh. Wow, not one award. To God be the glory.

  3. Pastor Shirley Williams

    EARNEST PUGH WON IN THE HIGHEST PLACE EVER HEAVEN.

  4. WOW! I truly love the Stellar Awards. But it also makes sad to see the same winners over and over again, when there are so many great Artists that are looked over every year. It seems as if 1-3 Artist are chosen and get all the awards instead including others. My prayer is that all Gospel Artist to stay encourage God see and he knows all things…. Be blessed!

    • I totally agree with you Chase!!! That’s why my interest in the Stellar Awards is fizzling real fast! Even with most of the radio stations, they play the same artist and songs pretty much ALL DAY and Night!! I’ve become very discouraged with the industry. I really wish they would get it together and start being fair with the airtime of other gospel artists that have great music out there too!! That’s why I listen to my own CDs and internet radio because you get more of a variety of artist (some I’ve never heard of but have some AWESOME songs out there!)

  5. Thanks for the info. Great job uGospel.

  6. Shout to the Lord! Congratulations to the Awardees! May you continue to worship the King of kings and share your ministration to uplift those touched through your music.
    Agape, Bishop Dr. Valli

  7. I wanted. Ernest. Pugh. To win but God has already rain. On us

  8. Big ups to Kirk Franklin for giving his song of the year award to the writer of Nobody Greater.

  9. Great Bravo! How refreshing Thank U-Gospel

  10. Congratulations to all. Stay focused on God!

  11. God is just that GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!Congrats to all of Kingdom Builders. To God Be The Glory!!

  12. Congrats to all the winners and their record label & PR Marketing staff..who make it possible for the winners to have their song played on the radio and internet.

    Blessed Be To God..

  13. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees!!!

  14. I am disappointed once again b/c we do not spread the blessings. The same one or two each year wins everything. If the Rance Allen Group (who are very good by the way) won for tradional group, why did they also win Traditional quartet? (Why not the runner up?) If VaShawn won artist of the year; why did he also win male vocalist of the year? Why not give this one to the runner up? The categories are so similar. Can’t we include more artists? There are so many great performers out there today. God bless all the winners. Just a thought.

    • I so agree with your statement Minister Faye!!! It’s becoming very disappointing to see that the same artists are winning back to back! Who’s doing the nominating?!! There are so many awesome current and new artists on the scene but do not get the recognition they should get like the current winners. Radio plays a major part in what the community hears and if they’re constantly playing the same artist/songs over and over, of course those will be the ones to get nominated/or win. It’s an unfair process (especially in the Christian arena)and needs restructuring. (I’m just saying…)

  15. Same people every year

  16. People….Vashawn got the Awards because He deserved them. People Vote, and the Winners win. God gets the Glory anyway, so why does it matter how many awards one person gets. HE EARNED THEM!!!!

  17. I am glad gospel artist are receiving awards for their music. It is a blessing. I would like to see more artist considered for Stella Awards. I buy so much gospel music that I never hear on any radio station. Neither are the artist mentioned on the Stella Awards. How come? I’m not just speaking of new and upcoming artist, I am including legendary artist like Shirley C, Dorothy N and the Mighty Clouds. I still love their music. They may not need a Stella Award to tell them they are great artist but it wont’t hurt to recognize them.

  18. Am an award winner gospel artist and worship leader from Zambia Africa and I happen to share in this thought that the Stella awards should unite Gods kingdom in America,
    promote every one.however Kirk`s smile and Vashawn`s nobody greater are global heat songs.

The health broker is given a summary of benefits sought by a person or a group coordinator.

Then he reveals his referrals and if both parties agree, the actual broker formulates an agreement between the two parties.

Those sensors involving some digital cameras change in in the area of contrast, while others work with a beam with infra-red (IR) light, specially in low lumination.

Thanks for sharing your ideas on this website.

Another thing is that just being a photographer requires not only problem in capturing award-winning photographs but hardships in establishing the best camera suited to your needs and most especially struggles in maintaining the grade of your camera. This can be very genuine and obvious for those photography addicts that are in capturing the nature’s engaging scenes : the mountains, the particular forests, the particular wild or even the seas. Visiting these amazing places surely requires a digicam that can meet the wild’s harsh setting.

  109. you are in reality a good webmaster. The website loading speed is incredible. It seems that you are doing any distinctive trick. Furthermore, The contents are masterwork. you have done a magnificent process on this matter!

  110. Wow, wonderful blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your site is magnificent, as well as the content!. Thanks For Your article about 2012 Stellar Awards Are Over AND THE WINNERS ARE& .

  111. Hey all, I have considered buying the software package DubTurbo Beatmaker and was hoping someone could give me an actual real critique of the program.
