Corey Red will host the September 29th ceremony, with a slew of as yet announced National Artists set to perform.

The nominees for the 2012 Kingdom Choice Awards were unveiled over the weekend. Leading the way with four nominations is Swoope. Andy Mineo and Bizzle followed with three nominations each, while Lecrae, Fro W.U.N.D.A.S and Applejaxx had two noms each.

Christian Hip Hop Legend Corey Red is set to host the September 29th awards ceremony, to be held at the Kumble Theater on Long Island University’s Campus in Downtown Brooklyn.

About the nominees, Minister Marcus, CEO of Kingdom Time Entertainment, said the following:

The KCA judging panel had a very hard and grueling task in choosing this years nominees and by the look of each category, they will have an even harder task to choose the 2012 KCA winners.

Minister Marcus has been tight lipped about on who is slated to perform that evening.  Only letting on that “Some of the top urban gospel artists from around the country will be in New York City for the KCA’s and we are anticipating a smoking hot show.”

I’m personally honored to be among the 2012 KCA special honoree recipients along with Grammy nominated, Pettidee and the Hip Hop general,Todd Bangz.
