BMAA president Jason Aultman explains, “I believe our people will be blessed and encouraged by Larnelle’s powerful voice and inspirational ministry.”

The only person in history to be a member of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, the Amateur Radio Hall of Fame and the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame, Larnelle Harris is admired by fans and peers alike for his majestic tenor voice. Larnelle has become the epitome of talent and integrity in a career that spans over three decades and includes numerous accolades for his music including five Grammy Awards, eleven Dove Awards (three of which were for Male Vocalist of the Year), and a Stellar Award among other honors. He has garnered nineteen #1 radio singles and countless top ten hits. Songs such as “How Excellent Is Thy Name,” “I Miss My Time with You,” “I’ve Just Seen Jesus,” plus many others including his signature song, “Amen” are now considered modern classics.

From the White House to the danger zone of the Thirty-eighth Parallel, Larnelle has impacted audiences across the globe with his music and ministry.  He was the first Christian artist to perform inside the Kremlin after the fall of the Soviet Union.  He is one of a handful of celebrities to receive the Ad Council’s Silver Bell Award for Distinguished Public Service in recognition of his song “Mighty Spirit” as the theme song for the longest-running Public Service Announcement in television history. Larnelle was recently honored by his home state of Kentucky with the Governor’s Lifetime Achievement Award in the Arts, making him the first Christian artist to receive the honor.

Larnelle continues to tour worldwide, with recent dates at Carnegie Hall and in Paris, France. He performed for the National Day of Prayer event in Washington D.C. in May of 2015 and will sing for the United Nations Ambassadors later in the fall. In addition to his numerous solo dates, Larnelle also travels with various multi-artist tours including this fall’s Compassion International Savior Tour, the Gaither Homecoming tour, the God of All Glory tour, and the Sandi Patty & Friends tour, the latter of which CCM Magazine reviewed and described Harris as having a “larger-than-life stage presence with impeccable vocal prowess.”  

The BMAA national meeting begins Monday, April 25, and will conclude on Wednesday, April 27. For more information, including a list of official hotels, visit
