Congrats to Lecrae for his grammy nomination for best rap/rock christian album. Congrats to the David Crowder Band for their nomination, and for Switchfoot for winning (both of course are two of my favorite bands). I don't really care much for the grammy awards, and never watched, but I was surprised by the reaction of some christians upon viewing Switchfoots acceptance speech and the crowds reaction to the christian segment of the award show.
Of course the grammy audience don't care for Christian music, in fact you would wonder why they even include a best christian category if not to raise ratings. Even their choice of winner shows their partialty- I felt like DCB was more deserving of the award, the album Church music is FANTASTIC, and far more spiritually potent than Hello Hurricane was. To all the christian artists out there keep making the beautiful and relevant music that is pleasing to God and I along with many brothers and sisters will continue to support. Pleasing God with your music is FAAAAR more important than pleasing a grammy committee, but with the maturity of faith these band members have I'm sure that goes without saying.
