The Heretic’s Comment: Before sharing my observations concerning the 2012 Stellar Awards, I want to first say congratulations to all the winners and nominees. My comments following are not meant to be disrespectful toward the winners and nominees, but it is more directed to the powers that keep them propped up.
Now that the formalities are out of the way, on this past Saturday, I made up my mind that I was going to force myself to sit down and watch the entire Stellar Awards show no matter how tempted I was to change the channel. And that is what I did. I watched the entire show and even though I had clients that were nominated in certain categories it turned out to be a tortured experience for me.
The entire affair just seemed to be an overproduced, detached and unrealistic attempt to connect christian music to an audience. And I am not talking about the audience in attendance, because it appeared that the entire audience was on the payroll of the producers of the show to make it seem like every performance was full of God’s anointing and power.
The problem that I have with the Stellar Awards is that it comes off as one big propaganda tool to keep pushing the same small crop of christian entertainment royalty as the center of the christian musical universe. Keep in mind that the small group of christian musical artists I am referring to are for the most part owned and controlled by the Conglomerates. By the way, my complaints about the Stellar Awards, is essentially the same complaint I have about the Grammy’s as well, but I boycotted watching the Grammy’s this year.
At any rate, Christian Music is so much more dynamic, powerful and impactful, then the propaganda show we witnessed in this year’s Stellar Awards.
The only way to change the old guard protecting the same group of gospel and christian artist who keep being renominated and winning year after year after year is for you and I as listeners and lovers of gospel and christian music to support (truly) support the artist we love even if they don’t happen to be a house hold name.
