Jonathan Mcreynolds and Mali Music take home Best Gospel Performance/Song Award (Grammys 2021)

Presented by the Recording Academy since 1958, the GRAMMYs are a celebration of excellence. The music community's highest honour, and its only peer-based award. The rich history of Music's Biggest Night happened yesterday as the world's leading society of music professionals gathered, the Recording Academy is dedicated to celebrating, honouring, and sustaining music's past and present.

Congratulations go out to Jonathan McReynolds and Mali Music on their grammy award. They joined forces on their single "Movin On" in April 2020 and that move has certainly paid off as they have both become official Grammy Award Winners for the first time in their careers. The song was recorded in a Airbnb and a hotel room during the pandemic and has since become a soundtrack on getting free, moving on and getting over. “Movin’ On” is lifted from McReynold’s upcoming album, People
