Maverick City Music Make History as they Perform at Grammys – And Win

By: Laura Bennett

After making history as the first Christian or Gospel artist to perform at the Grammys in 20 years – and be televised while doing it – Georgia based group Maverick City Music have now won their first Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album.

Awarded for Old Church Basement which they recorded alongside Elevation Worship, Maverick City Music said in their acceptance speech, “this group was created for those who were marginalised, unheard and rejected in this space, to be heard and have a space.

“All of us, on this stage represent that.”

Chris Brown from Elevation Worship added, “I will never forget that little basement where this beautifully wild season between our two groups began”.

“It’s been the most beautiful thing watching our two ministries create something together that we could have never created separately,” he said.

“Every bit of what we do belongs to God. We’re honoured to be a part of what He’s doing in the Kingdom,” Maverick City Music said on their Instagram page.

Along with their history-making performance, the group also became the first artist to be nominated in all four categories across both Christian and Gospel genres.

In the days leading up to the ceremony they said on social media, “all the glory and praise goes to Jesus”.

“We truly feel that we have been placed here for such a time as this, and are excited to continue to share this journey with you all.”
