Though she wears many hats, powerhouse singer Jekalyn Carr continues her winning season as a recording artist. In July, Carr will co-host the 37th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards alongside the gifted Kierra Sheard-Kelly. This is a double first for Carr, who is the youngest artist to co-host the show for two consecutive years. This will also be the first year that two female artists assume co-hosting duties.
At radio, Carr’s single “My Portion” has hit the #1 position on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart, making it her sixth #1 radio single and bringing her tally of career number ones to 10.
“I’m excited that radio is playing ‘My Portion’, and I hope that people are blessed by hearing it,” says Carr. “The song is a reminder that our portion is always filled with good news. Though we may encounter difficulty, hardship, sickness and other challenges – the portion that is promised to us is victory so we have to keep the faith.”
In April, Carr received enormous media attention for her showstopping Grammy Award look. She was named one of the evening’s best dressed by Variety, Deadline, Eonline, People, Essence and more. A show-stopping look like that doesn’t come together without advance planning and preparation. This behind-the-scenes video shows just how Jekalyn did it.
