NAACP Image Awards

Rahn Anthoni included in submissions For NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Gospel Album and Outstanding Song

Singer-songwriter Rahn Anthoni has been included in the submissions for a chance to be nominated for an NAACP Image Award in the Outstanding Gospel Album and Outstanding Song categories. Anthoni was previously honored with a nomination as Best Male Artist for his hit single Hold On for the South Florida Gospel Music Awards.

Rahn Anthoni

The Image Award submission completes a year of extraordinary success, with the launch of his LP Man on a Mission as well as unfathomable loss, with the untimely passing of his son, Aaron Hatcher. But despite it all, Rahn Anthoni pushes on… determined to share with the world his unshakable faith, demonstrating to fans that if they just Hold On, they too can find joy through the darkest times of their lives.

Rahn’s music resonates with the challenges of faith mixed with glimpses of a life less traveled. He sings on the spiritual perspective of real life, everyday situations and has the confidence to live in and under the power and authority of God.

Although Anthoni is a gospel artist, he has crossed over into a number of different genres, collaborating with some of the most famous names in Hip Hop and R&B. He celebrates spiritual and unshakable faith so powerful that sitting still, complacent in one genre is not an option. Rahn has successfully helped to put the soul and fever back in R&B. He feels his musical message should not be conveyed to a single group of listeners but the entire spectrum. No matter where he stands musically, Anthoni simply owns the lyric cognizant that he’s simply preparing the listener for deeper intimacy with the Divine God.
