BEC Recordings artist, MANAFEST, has been nominated for a Juno Award for “Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year” for his sophomore album, Glory.

The Canadian equivalent of the GRAMMY, Juno nominees are selected based on a combination of sales and votes from members of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS). Joining Manafest in this category are Hawk Nelson, Downhere, Carolyn Arends and Starfield. This year’s ceremony will be hosted by Nelly Furtado on April 1 at Saskatoon’s Credit Union Centre and broadcast live on CTV.

“When I first got into the music industry I never thought I’d be at the level I am now with a Juno Nomination,” exclaims Manafest. “Crazy Dope God is good!!!”

In addition to the Juno Award nomination, Manafest has a lot going on! His video for the song “Runaway” had world-wide premieres on MonsterPod.org and the Gospel Music Channel, where the video debuted at #1 on their Top 30. “Bounce,” the second single from Glory, just went for adds at radio the beginning of this month.

For this unique rapper, his music is about much more than garnering nominations, having world-wide premiers and making it to the top of the charts…he wants to connect with listeners one-on-one and impact lives. Manafest’s vision for 2007 is to play over 200 shows and see at least 3,000 people saved through this music ministry.

“Performing music gives me a platform where I can speak God’s love to the masses,” Manafest explains. “I want to be sure I’m making good use of the stage He has provided me, by using it to pull people in to hear my story and songs and then have the opportunity to connect with them on a more personal level when I step off the stage.”

Currently playing solo dates across the country, Manafest will team with Boarders for Christ for a tour in April and May. San Diego-based Boarders for Christ is a team of professional skaters and snowboarders who are dedicated to sharing the gospel. Manafest will be the headline performer for the event and will be skating alongside Tim Byrne and his team of skateboarders.

Suffering a severe ankle injury and ending his dream to become a pro skater, Chris Greenwood, aka MANAFEST, signed with BEC Recordings and released his debut album Epiphany in 2005 and the follow-up, Glory, in 2006. Glory has received great response since it’s release, with Christian Music Today’s Andree Farias commenting, “the album…manages to be a study on how to fuse rap and rock the right way. It even trumps recent offerings by tobyMac, KJ-52, and John Reuben—all practitioners who have a thing for rap-rock, but that don't do it as well. Highly recommended.”
