The last time we saw Gospel on the Grammy Awards

There is a lot of buzz around the music industry over the announcement of the nominees for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards. I usually don’t spend a whole lot of time watching the Grammys because the music I like the most (Gospel) is rarely seen on the broadcast.

I started thinking about the last time we saw a Gospel artist perform on the Grammys. The last performance I could think of was when Kirk Franklin, Crystal Lewis, Bono, Gerald Levert, and Mary J. Blige performed Lean on Me back in the late 1990’s/early 2000’s. (I could be wrong about this. Please let me know if I am.)

Take a look at the video below and watch the complete performance. Notice how Tamela Mann and Dalon Collins completely out sing the other “recording artists” on stage. At that time they hadn’t begun their solo careers. They were part of the original Kirk Franklin and The Family.

What do you think about the video? Can you remember a more recent Gospel/Christian music performance at the Grammys?

    I know it's kind of late to answer your question but I believe there've been quite a few gospel performances at the Grammy's ( maybe one every year). In 2009 Mary Mary performed God in Me and I'm pretty sure Isreal Houghton performed with Alicia Keys in 2008 ( I didn't catch that one). I'm trying to find footage on youtube but not much there.
