The Gospel Music Association has announced the nominees for the 51st Annual GMA Dove Music Awards, and “Way Maker“, the critically-acclaimed song written by the award-winning Sinach has been nominated in three categories.
The categories Way Maker is vying for include ‘Song of the Year’, Spanish Language Recorded Song of the Year (as recorded by Priscilla Bueno), and Worship Recorded Song of the Year (as recorded by Leeland).
Sinach has been on the gospel music scene for quite a while now and she is unarguably one of Nigeria’s most successful gospel artists. “Waymaker” originally released in 2016, recently gained massive popularity following performances by The Elevation Worship and other Christian rock bands. Her unique sound and back-to-back hit songs, led her to become the first African to top the Billboard Christian Songwriters Chart.
“This nomination could only have come through the Spirit of God and not man,” Sinach said. “As I have said before, this song was born from the Spirit and it is soaring on the wings of the Holy Ghost. It is a song for the now. I am grateful to everyone who has supported us, the churches, the ministers who have taken this song to the ends of the earth, and the many people it continues to be a blessing to.”
While ‘Way Maker’ is her first song to gain global critical acclaim and peak on the Billboard, she says her being in the limelight was always a given so long as Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, President of Loveworld Incorporated was organising record-breaking programs going back into the 90s.
