Hip-hop gospel artist Amethyst shares her experience at the Stellar Awards

Amethyst was a nominee at the 37th annual Stellar Awards

Hip-hop gospel artist Amethyst was excited to be a nominee at the 37th annual Stellar Awards. She spoke with rolling out about her experience and what inspired her to pursue gospel music.

How was your experience at this year’s Stellar Awards?

It was an amazing, exhilarating feeling. Not just to be one who’s attending this year, but to be a first-time Stellar Award winner. God is the greatest, and we won in the category of Rap Hip-Hop Song of the Year.

What inspired you to get into gospel music?

I never classified myself as being in a specific genre prior to this. This is unfamiliar territory for me. When they brought this to me, I looked at them crazy, like “I don’t sing this type of music.” Then something stuck with me. My father told me man’s extremity is God’s opportunity in the moment of weakness and the moment of doubt. When you feel like you can’t do it, it is beyond you, that’s when God [takes over]. The moment I surrendered, he took over and we’re here at the Stellar Awards.

Who is one artist you would like to work with?

I would love to work with Erica Campbell, Kierra Sheard and Jekalyn Carr. I admire them so much and I love what they’re doing for the body of Christ.
