Tillymann Music Group Platinum-Selling Artist Tamela Mann was honored to receive a 2017 Billboard Music Award for Top Gospel Album for her Billboard No. 1 selling release, One Way. The awards show recognizes the hottest names in music today.
"What an honor to receive a Billboard Music Award," said Tamela. "Thank you God! And thank you to my whole team and to the fans! Congratulations to all the winners!"
Tamela recently received two 2017 BET Award nominations in the Dr. Bobby Jones Best Gospel/Inspirational Award category. Her single, "God Provides" and Kirk Franklin's "My World Needs You" on which she performed received award nods. Winners will be announced at a star-studded ceremony broadcast live at BET from Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater on Sunday, June 25.
Tamela is currently on the "Mann's World Family Tour," co-headlining with husband, actor and comedian David Mann. The 25-city spring leg of the tour is making stops across the country, including those before last weekend's capacity-crowds in Florida. The singer is performing songs from her latest album One Way.
The project is executively produced by Tamela, David Mann and son David Mann Jr. One Way is produced by the acclaimed Myron Butler and David Mann. The album's all-star guest producer credits include Kirk Franklin, Eric Dawkins, King Logan, Shaun Martin and Timbaland. "God Provides," written and produced by Franklin, is the sophomore single from One Way and held the No. 1 slot on the Billboard Gospel radio chart for 13 weeks.
Tamela's new single "Change Me" entered the Billboard Gospel radio chart Top 20 and is her highest debut ever on that chart. This week, the track lands at No. 10.
