2021 NAACP Image Awards

2021 NAACP Image Awards

The NAACP Image Awards have been announced, recognizing Black creators across TV, music, literature, and film. This year the awards also feature two Special Award categories including, Social Justice Impact and Entertainer of the Year. Winners will be announced on March 27th at 8/7c on BET, and for the first time, on CBS.

Author, entertainer, actress, entrepreneur, wife and mother, Tamela Mann, is one of the top Gospel artists of our time. At No.11 on Billboard’s Year-End charts, Mann’s latest single “Touch From You,” is now nominated for Outstanding Gospel/Christian Song

Nathan Mitchell’s album Nathan Mitchell Presents: Donny, Duke, and Wonder is nominated for Outstanding Jazz Album – Vocal. The album, released last October via ENM Music Group, is a retelling of timeless classics originally coined by Donny Hathaway, George Duke, and Stevie Wonder. Mitchell’s renditions serve a modern take, mixing smooth jazz with funk, blended with his signature energy. 

Another superb Jazz album has made the list, this time in the Instrumental category. Christian Sands’ Be Water is in the running for Outstanding Jazz Album – Instrumental. The Mack Avenue release continues to see recognition across a variety of jazz honors including the single “Be Water II” which is currently in the running for a GRAMMY Award for Best Instrumental Composition.

Congratulations to all those who have been honored for their outstanding contributions to music this year and beyond. Find the full list of NAACP nominees here.
