Israel Houghton celebrates Grammy win
Israel Houghton takes a GRAMMY home
Released amidst international acclaim in August of last year and launching to the top of multiple retail sales charts, Israel & New Breed’s Jesus At The Center received a GRAMMY Award from The Recording Academy during the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards®, which were broadcast live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on the CBS Television Network.
Receiving an award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song for the hit AC radio single from the album, “Your Presence Is Heaven” (a tie with Matt Redman’s “10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord),”), the latter nod marks Israel Houghton’s first award in the category and fifth GRAMMY so far for the celebrated recording artist. Houghton shares the GRAMMY with “Your Presence Is Heaven” co-writer, Micah Massey.
Jesus At The Center, which was also nominated for a Best Gospel Album GRAMMY, marks Houghton’s New Breed after two successful solo projects for the first live recording in five years from Israel & New Breed.
