Motown Gospel and BMI celebrated the release of rising gospel music star, Evvie McKinney’s, debut album, Love, Evvie McKinney, with a celebration at MODEx Studios in Atlanta. Hosted by BMI’s Catherine Brewton, the celebration included a surprise performance by McKinney, lite bites, and a host of label partners. VIPs in attendance included: Wardell Malloy (BMI), Kim and Keyondra Lockett (“Jolie Noire”), Jekalyn Carr, Angel Taylor (“Trin-i-tee 5:7”), Trina Braxton, Pastor Mike Jr., Chaz Lamar Shepherd, Makeba Woods, Shari Nycole and more.
Influenced by the fabled and fertile Memphis music scene, McKinney’s unique merging of good ol’ gospel vibes, current pop sensibility and deep-rooted soul has her perfectly positioned for international acclaim. In 2018, she competed and won in the inaugural season of The Four: Battle for Stardom on FOX.
In 2022, she co-hosted the 37th Stellar Gospel Music Awards pre-show alongside Pastor Mike Jr. The 37th Stellar Gospel Music Awards is currently running in broadcast syndication and online. Part one of the 37th Stellar Gospel Music Awards is available for viewing now at TheStellarAwards.com.
Evvie McKinney’s debut album, Love, Evvie McKinney, is available now wherever music is sold and streamed digitally.
