RONDA — Members of the local gospel singing group, Chosen, have been nominated for Best Traditional Gospel Group of the Year. They will travel to Little Rock, Ark., in March for the awards, which will be presented by Anjelica Records Music.
Anjelica Records started the awards to recognize independent artists who are on top of their genre in music but don’t get the national recognition that they deserve. Most awards, programs, showcase and shows are directly related to major record labels often times leaving out the independent artist.
Chosen has traveled extensively rendering musical programs sponsoring benefits, hosting music workshops and hosting the National Singing Quartet Convention of America in August of 2010, which brought more than 7,000 people to the area.
Chosen also has been featured as special guest on the nationally syndicated Bobby Jones show on the BET network and on the Word Network.
Anyone who would like to help members of Chosen with travel expenses to Arkansas should contact Stan Parks at 336-575-2259. Donations will be greatly appreciated.
