This morning Yancy was named About.com’s Best Indie Solo Artist. Thanks to everyone who voted over the past few weeks. Here’s the article:
In the beginning, almost 150 male and female artists from all of the genres found within Christian music were nominated for the Best Christian Indie Solo Artist. Five ladies stood head and shoulders above the rest and they were named your finalists. Each brought big talent and even bigger hearts for ministry to the voting table. In the closest race in the Christian Music Awards, voting went down to the wire and the results were so close, it was impossible to predict a final winner. After all of the votes were audited to remove any “gaming” of the system, a winner arose.
All of the unsigned artists in the Best Christian Solo Artist category are your faces to watch for in 2012 and the face/voice that you voted as the Best was Yancy with 45% of the vote!
