FRENCH QUARTER – Local gospel artist, The Apostle, has been nominated for the annual Rhythm of Gospel Music awards.
The Apostle, known as Andre “Avelin” Webster is well known within the gospel community as an Apostle and Pastor of Love and Grace Fellowship church; vocalist and instrumentalist. The Apostle began his music career at a very young age and hails from a family that has a music background. His hit single “Thank Him in everything” became quickly popular and paved the path for his debut album “Kingdom Day,” which was launched in November 2015.

The Apostle welcomes all his local, regional, and international friends to vote for him online at www.therhythmofgospelawards.com. “Every vote is important towards winning the awards, so I encourage everyone to vote for me in categories 8, 10, 38 and 59.” He continued: “there are about 66 categories and votes must be cast in all categories for a vote to be submitted, so I recommend that you vote for me in those four categories and vote randomly for a nominee in all the other categories.”

Commenting on his nomination, The Apostle said that he is very grateful and honored to have been nominated at the internationally known Rhythm of Gospel awards, and looks forward to winning all four nominations as a result of everyone’s votes.
