Groove Awards on the way!


Music (creative arts) will never replace the need for food and medicine, but conversely, food and medicine cannot replace the need for music (creative arts). Groove Awards, the first and the only Christian Award Ceremony in Kenya was started in 2004 and its main goal is to Promote, Expose and Celebrate the God given talent in the Gospel music industry. Gospel music has significantly affected and improved the lives of many Kenyans. It has created many opportunities for the youth, many of who would otherwise languish in anonymity. In the year 2004 and 2005, performing artists, producers and musicians were honored in 22 categories which included song of the year, group of the year, male and female artists of the year among others.
