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 is Larnelle Harris. 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. Larnelle has garnered 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. Larnelle was recently recognized 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. He has garnered nineteen #1 radio singles and countless top 10 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 38th 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 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 this year, and will sing for the U.N. Ambassadors later in the fall. In addition to his numerous solo dates, Larnelle also travels with various multi-artist tours including the Compassion International Savior Tour, the Gaither Homecoming tour, the God of All Glory tour, and the Sandi Patty & Friends tour. In a review of his live performances, CCM Magazine described Harris as having a “larger-than-life stage presence with impeccable vocal prowess.”
