Africa Gospel Music Awards 2012 Launches in London
Founded in 2009, the Africa Gospel Music Association serves as the face and voice for the African gospel/Christian music community worldwide and is dedicated to exposing, promoting and celebrating the gospel through African-fusion music of all styles. It is by no means a competition but an event that honours and recognises some of the best talented and hard working gospel Artistes
“The purpose of the AGMA's, now in its third year, is to recognise and celebrate the talent, innovation and success of gospel artistes and media related individuals and organisations. There will be 25 awards at this year's AGMAs, covering the whole spectrum of music and industry related activities” said awards spokesperson Charles Koranteng “The AGMA's is an opportunity for one's work to gain recognition and to inspire and unearth the God given talents of others across Africa and the Diaspora.”
AGMA was founded by John Wright, Allen Opoku and Charles Koranteng as an organisation to promote gospel music of African origin worldwide. The organisation has grown to a community consisting of over 8,000 members which includes agents, artists, church leaders, managers, promoters, radio personnel, record company executives, retailers, songwriters, and other industry visionaries.
