South African record label Merchant Music were beaming after last weekend’s Crown Gospel Awards in Durban where their artists Retief Burger, Louis Brittz, Helmut Meijer and Neil Buchner, received the award for Best Afrikaans Gospel Album for their album. In Verwondering.
Three other Merchant Music artists, Louis Brittz (Psalms 2), DuisLig and Cjay (Jesus Freak Yes I Am) received nominations for awards, and Cjay also performed live at the awards evening where he had the crowd on their feet.
In Verwondering is the incredible story of the journey that four musicians and a camera crew took to the beautiful town of Sutherland in the Karoo earlier in the year, says Merchant Music in a media release. The musicians were looking for answers about the intimate presence of God and discovered more than they could ever have imagined. They wrote 12 God-inspired songs in 3 days. There is also a documentary DVD available that captured their amazing journey.
