On September 24, Christian hip-hop and urban gospel community gathered to recognize God’s talented children at the 7th Annual Kingdom Choice Awards.

KCA isn’t your typical churchy event. There’s a different kind of vibe. It’s raw, comfortable, urban. It’s hip-hop. No suits and ties, but dope tees and kicks.

A young crowd filled up the Kumble Theater in Brooklyn where Heavy Hitter DJ Tony Tone set the mood for the show hosted by comedian C-King. Black Jewelz opened up, while Angie Rose, Mission and more also hit the stage.

Here are some of the winners from this year:

Album of the Year: Fly Exam (J Givens)
