The votes are in for the first annual Digital Gospel Music Awards presented by Elev8, and Hello Fear by Kirk Franklin is the Gospel album of 2011 that moved fans the most! He received 447 votes, barely enough to edge out Le’Andria Johnson‘s The Awakening Of Le’Andria Johnson, which fell two votes short with 445.
The deluxe edition of LeCrae‘s Rehab came in third place for this Digital Gospel Music Award, while YRM (Your Righteous Mind) by Donald Lawrence & Co. finished fourth. Both albums received over 9% of the 1638 votes submitted.
The rest of the top 10 albums of 2011, based on votes received for Digital Gospel Music Awards, consists of Church On The Moon by Deitrick Haddon, Mary Mary‘s Something Big, Yolanda Adams‘ Becoming, I Survived by Dorinda Clark-Cole, Mississippi Mass Choir‘s Then Sings My Soul and Angel & Chanelle by Trin-i-tee 5:7.
Rodney Talley‘s Revelation received the most write-in votes, but not enough to make the top 10. With albums from Fred Hammond, Marvin Sapp and Brian Courtney Wilson coming in 2012, next year promises to be another great one for Gospel music fans.
