Joyce looks forward to music awards

Gospel singer, Joyce Blessing may be the fastest rising artiste in town. Just after she released her best known album last year, Joyce has earned an incredible six nominations in the 2014 edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

Last Saturday, Joyce’s Heavy Price album was listed in the race for the Gospel Album of the Year, Album of the Year; her Nyame Eguamba from that album had Song of the Year, herself for Gospel Artiste of the Year, Best Female Vocal Performance and Best Collaboration awards.

Joyce told Showbiz over the phone last Monday that she was very grateful to her fans for helping her gain the nominations. “I was more than happy and grateful to my fans for helping me gain that number of nominations.

“I am expecting to win some of the awards, perhaps three or four of them but I am hoping I get to take all of them, she said with a hint of laughter.

Asked how she would take it if she did not win any award, Joyce said, “It would never happen and if that should happen, I would still be excited because I would be Joyce Blessing and Jesus will be Jesus. I don’t have a problem with that, but I know I would definitely win some of the awards.”

Joyce disclosed that contrary to what many people think, Heavy Price is her third album and not the first. She said her first album was Obi Ntu Nyame Fo, and the second was Promise and Fail.

“I thank my fans so much for their support and prayers but I still need their votes.”

According to Joyce, some of her fans are speculating that she had left the music scene. “I want my fans to know that I am fine and that I took some time off to have my son. I’m back and we are moving forward.”

Joyce is married to Dave Joy who is the sound engineer for her music Production Unit.
