About Us

Creed Pannell

Celebrating 23 years of Gospel Music, Leadership & Service

Mr. Creed Pannell, Jr.

CEO & Executive Director, Atlanta Gospel Choice Awards

My strong faith and love of music inspired the birth of Atlanta's Gospel Choice Awards (GCA), which honors pastors who make a difference in Atlanta. Over the years, the show has grown to tremendous heights with world class artists, anointed pastors, community leaders and business partners.

This year marks the 23rd anniversary of the world-renowned Gospel Choice Awards. At its inception in the fall of 1994, the Gospel Choice Awards has always been described as one of the most star-studded, foot stomping and soul stirring shows in Atlanta focusing on God, Family, Music and Love.

The GCA pays tribute to today’s most influential and iconic artists. The show has featured an array of performers and honorees including Dottie Peoples, Trin-i-tee 5:7, Pastor Jasper Williams, Bishop Dale Bronner and many others.

The GCA also presents fan-voted awards in the categories of Best New Artist, Best Male Artist, Best Group or Duo, Best Choir & Director, Best Praise & Worship Team, Best Female Artist, Best Quartet & Duo, and Song of the Year.  

Twenty one years is a testament of our love and devotion to our communities, churches & families. As we strive each day to encourage and inspire all God's people, we are thankful for the rich heritage of gospel music.

We thank all of our sponsors, artists, members of the clergy, community leaders, friends, family and other supporters who will join us in Atlanta on Sept. 25, 2017 at the Georgia International Convention Center to celebrate this monumental event. We look forward to continuing our mission to educate, promote, and celebrate the cultural heritage and strength of our people.

The Gospel Choice Awards along with other sponsors: Dignity Memorial, Business Development Initiative (BDI), Atlanta Business Journal Magazine, Georgia International Convention Center, Future Entrepreneurs Chamber of Commerce and others.
