According to Relevant Magazine, In his acceptance speech, Chance told the crowd, “Glory be to God. I claim this victory in the name of the Lord!”

He also led the crowd in a stirring rendition of “How Great is Our God.

Last year, Chance made headlines when he debuted his single “Blessings” on “The Tonight Show.”
