Heart To Heart Wins a 2011 Songwriter of the Year Award at Gospel Music Association/IMMERSE-Nashville for "See a Rainbow" on Hope Street Music
Heart to Heart, featuring Sharon and Jerry Mays, were awarded a 2011 Songwriter of the Year award during ceremonies at the Gospel Music Association/IMMERSE-Nashville event on July 27-30 for their original song,
“See a Rainbow.” The awards ceremony followed a week of competitions with several hundred entries in songwriting; and Heart to Heart was the only group of singers/songwriters at this event who held up the banner for Southern and Country Gospel Music from around the world.
Heart to Heart won 2010 Duo & Vocal Group of the Year, GMA/IMMERSE-Nashville and was just voted 2011 Diamond Awards and ICGMA Top 5 in June. Their song, “See a Rainbow” on Hope Street Music has reached No. 2 on the Country Gospel Top 100 Charts and is playing on radio everywhere. Their newest release, “Rock of Ages, Roll On” is moving up the charts on Triplestrand Productions as is their song “That’s Why I Cry” on Hope Street.
Sharon and Jerry are originally from Malden and Parma, MO and are now based in Branson, MO. They often say “these awards are not fireplace furniture but tools to help open doors to reach more people for the Lord.” They also say they have “the best Boss in all eternity!” “We travel all the time but we love our home town family and friends and it’s always a blessing to get home for hugs and smiles.”
Heart to Heart are regularly featured artists at the Night Light Theater (owned by the Barbara Fairchild family) and Branson Radio Live with Karen Berka. All other times, they tour nationally to serve churches, festivals, theaters and civic events. Their desire to not only work with churches but to reach folks who might not enter a church building, has taken them to some interesting venues such as opening for The Kentucky Headhunters and Nashville Country Acts. Heart to Heart brings the Gospel with a little doo-wop and comedy to the stage in a way that the audiences love. The industry is definitely taking notice as they share their unique harmony blend, energy on stage and style variety with audiences everywhere.
