DA T.R.U.T.H. WINS GOSPEL MUSIC CHANNEL VIDEO AWARD
05 February 2008

GRAMMY Award nominee, Stellar Award winner and 2008 Holy Hip-Hop Award honoree Da' T.R.U.T.H. was recently awarded a Gospel Music Channel Video Award (GMCVA) in the hip-hop category for his video "Who Am I?" (featuring Tye Tribbett)--the first radio and video single from his latest album Open Book. In addition to Tribbett's guest vocal performance, Da' T.R.U.T.H.'s high-energy video also features a cameo by GRAMMY, Dove and Stellar Award-winning gospel artist Kirk Franklin.

The GMCVAs honored the top videos in six genre categories: Rock, Country, Soul, Hip-Hop, Contemporary and Latino, as well as the overall "Top Video of the Year." The nominees in each category were determined by the amount of airplay the videos received on the Gospel Music Channel during 2007, and winners were chosen by viewers and fans via online voting at www.gospelmusicchannel.com.

Da T.R.U.T.H.'s GRAMMY Award-nominated Open Book project ("Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album") released in summer 2007 on Cross Movement Records and set a new record by securing the highest Soundscan/Billboard Chart debut for a gospel hip-hop artist when Open Book captured the #2 position on the Billboard Top Gospel Chart. The album also debuted at #1 on Soundscan's Christian R&B/Hip-Hop Chart and at #3 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel Chart. Open Book has delighted fans across a variety of genres according to Billboard's charts, debuting at #5 on the Contemporary Christian Chart, #6 on the Top Christian/Gospel Chart and #18 on the Rap Chart. The album's single, "Who Am I?" featuring Tye Tribbett, debuted at #9 on HipHopRnBSoul.com's Top 10 Hip- Hop Songs as the only gospel song on the chart, positioned between Kanye West's "Can't Tell Me Nothin'" and 50 Cent's "Amusement Park." The gospel hip-hop artist was also named one of the top "Movers and Shakers Under 40" this summer by Trumpet Magazine.

Da' T.R.U.T.H.'s widespread appeal has landed him in the pages of Vibe, The Source, XXL, Sister2Sister, JET, Charisma, CCM and New Man magazines, among others. His television appearances include "BET News," BET's "Lift Every Voice," TBN's "Praise The Lord," INSP's "Steelroots" and "Mixx Master's Lounge," the Word Network's "Bobby Jones Gospel" and Daystar Television Network's "Sound Check." Da' T.R.U.T.H. was also a featured artist in "Holy Hip-Hop: The Movie."

Da' T.R.U.T.H.'s Open Book is available on Cross Movement Records and distributed in the CBA market by Provident-Integrity Distribution and by Sony RED in the general market.
