The 16th Annual BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Music Awards will take place in Atlanta on January 17, 2015. It’s a first-class, awe-inspiring worship service to honor the legends of gospel music. The invitation-only event attracts gospel music’s premier songwriters, brightest stars and leading executives. Israel Houghton, a prolific worship leader, musician, songwriter, producer and recording artist, LaShun Pace, the siren behind time-honored opus “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” and The Anointed Pace Sisters, the sweet-sounding siblings whose songs are essential to Sunday morning church, are set to be honored with performances by an assembly of musicians (who are to be announced). Gospel music loyalists Kim Burrell and VaShawn Mitchell will host the prestigious event.
