19-year old Krystal Meyers was recognized by the Gospel Music Association with a GMA Dove Award nomination today at a press conference in Nashville. Meyers is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year for the 39th Gospel Music Association (GMA) Dove Awards. Receiving a nomination is gospel/Christian music’s highest honor. Meyers was also nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year in 2007, and in 2006 received two Dove Award nominations in the categories of New Artist of the Year and a second nomination for her contribution to the Come Let Us Adore Him project, in the Special Event Album category.
After learning of her Female Vocalist of the Year nomination, Meyers commented, “I’m so excited! It is such an honor to be recognized by the industry in this way, and I can’t wait for the Dove Awards.”
Since the release of Krystal Meyers’ self-titled debut on Essential Records (2005), the nineteen year-old has garnered four Dove Award nominations, two at the 37th Annual GMA Dove Awards (New Artist of the Year and Special Event Album), one for the 38th Annual (Female Vocalist of the Year) and one for the 39th Dove Awards this year, for Female Vocalist of the Year. Meyers also landed the No. 1 spot on general market radio in Japan, (“Anticonformity”) knocking the Red Hot Chili Peppers from the top position, had six Top 10 radio singles in the U.S. (“The Way To Begin,” “My Savior,” “Anticonformity,” “Fire,” “Collide,” “The Beauty of Grace”), and performed before more than 400,000 people.
