Christian hip-hop artist Lecrae won a Grammy award Sunday (Feb. 8) for Best Contemporary Christian Song/Performance Sunday for his song “Messengers.” In his acceptance speech, the singer took time to acknowledge Jesus’ love and sacrifice. 

 

"Love and respect to everybody out here because this is a celebration of gifts,” Lecrae said. “And there's so many people out here who are gifted, but obviously you can't celebrate gives without celebrating the giver of all gifts. So I want to celebrate Jesus for gifting us all with the gift of love and sacrifice.” 

 

Christian Today reports Lecrae also thanked his family and label, as well as the Christian group KING AND COUNTRY who are featured in the song. 

 

Sunday’s win marked Lecrae’s second Grammy; his album “Gravity” was named Best Gospel Album in 2013.
