In addition to the winners named in the GOSPEL MUSIC ASSOCIATION’S GMA ACADEMY national talent competition in ESTES PARK, CO, separate prizes were awarded from WALT DISNEY WORLD, COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL and INDELIBLE CREATIVE GROUP.
Executives from WALT DISNEY WORLD spent the week at GMA MUSIC IN THE ROCKIES to award one competitor a performance slot at NIGHT OF JOY at WALT DISNEY WORLD RESORT. Vocalist CRYSTAL STARK from TUCSON, AZ, was named the DISNEY winner and will now perform on the same stage with MERCYME, CASTING CROWNS, BARLOWGIRL, KIRK FRANKLIN, TOBYMAC and other top Christian artists on SEPTEMBER 8 and 9 at NIGHT OF JOY in WALT DISNEY WORLD’S MAGIC KINGDOM.
STARK was also the choice of INDELIBLE CREATIVE GROUP to record a song for its annual multi-artist project VELOCITY distributed nationally by WORD DISTRIBUTION. The CD features independent artists from grassroots ministries around the country.
SHANE CHADWICK of AMARILLO, TX, was tapped for the COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL’S MUSIC & MINISTRY EXPERIENCE and will be invited to travel with an established Christian artist to a COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL Third World destination. This all-expense paid ministry trip provides a great opportunity to explore the practical integration of music and ministry.
