Smokie Norful Named #1 Gospel Artist Of 2003 By Billboard Magazine
Gospel Music's newest sensation, Smokie Norful, has capped off a banner year with the honor of being named the #1 Gospel Artist of 2003 by Billboard Magazine.
Kicking off 2003 with a bang, Norful went three-for-three at the 18th Annual Stellar Awards in January, taking home trophies for Male Vocalist Of The Year, Contemporary Male Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year.Norful's Stellar coup came in the middle of a six-month run on the highly successful Hopeville Tour with headliners Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin and Yolanda Adams, for which he was hand-picked by Franklin.Among Norful's other accolades for the year were three Gospel Music Workshop of America Excellence Awards ("New Artist of the Year - Contemporary", "Album of the Year - Contemporary" and "Song of the Year - Contemporary"), a BET Award nomination for "Best Gospel Artist" and two Dove Award Nominations ("Best Contemporary Gospel Album" and "Urban Recorded Song Of The Year").
After 18 months of release, Norful's critically acclaimed debut, "I Need You Now", landed in the #1 spot on Billboard's Top Gospel Chart the week of August 10, 2003.Just 10 weeks later, he did it again when his release, "LIMITED EDITION" debuted at #1, while "I Need You Now" also held the #4 position the same week, marking the first time ever that a Gospel artist has simultaneously occupied two of the Billboard Gospel Top 5 positions with non-holiday releases.
While Smokie Norful's songs and style were honed in the church, his message quickly found an audience outside the traditional four walls.The title track from his debut, "I Need You Now", has become his signature song, securing his place among Gospel Music's greats and also winning him Urban Mainstream acclaim as the song proved to be a Top 5 smash at radio's Urban AC format while also scoring as one of the biggest songs of the past two years at Gospel radio.
An incendiary live performer, Norful spent much of 2003 capitalizing on many other high-profile performance opportunities including the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, the Dove Awards pre-show, the Gospel Music Association's Seminar In The Rockies, The Night Of Healing concert - sponsored by New York City's KISS FM, The Holiday Cooldown (sharing the stage with the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige) - sponsored by LA's KKBT "The Beat" and The Tribute To Luther Vandross - sponsored by Detroit's WMXD.
