Back then, she took to social media to express her gratitude.
“Wow! To have won the award of “Worship Song of the Year” is so huge and undeniably supernatural. Then on top of that, the song of the year (2018) – seriously 10 years in 1!! In 2014, I told myself one day I will write the worship song of the year! And in this year of the supernatural, my first released worship song was deemed worship song of the year! The testimonies that came from this song were unfathomable. I’m grateful to God for every good and perfect gift comes from Him and I’m grateful to my husband for his love, support, and constant encouragement! Thank you all for celebrating me! God bless you,” she wrote.
