Gospel Artist Appointed Nominated For An Urban Inspirational Award
The Urban Inspirational Awards Committee has selected gospel recording artist as a nominee in the Rhythm & Praise category.
“I am in awe of GOD! He is so amazing. Receiving any nominations from the Urban Inspirational Awards is an honor,” says Appointed. “I’m thankful to the Lord for everything that I have including my adversities and mountaintop experiences. The opportunity to minister in music for the Lord is a privilege I embrace,” she continues.
Appointed is a foot soldier, a grunt, so to speak. One could say that she is almost like a one man band or rather a one woman band because she writes, sings, promotes and produces own music. Prior to hitting the gospel music scene, Appointed acted as a children's choir director and choir member Maranatha Church in San Diego, California. Her recently released single, “Never” was released through Fly Away Records, an independent record label with nationally distributed titles. "Never" and another single "You Know" have garnered radio airplay support in several states.
