About Brandon Lake:
Brandon Lake is a GRAMMY® Award-winning artist and songwriter from Charleston, South Carolina. As a worship leader for gatherings around the nation, his purpose is to call followers of Jesus into a posture of freedom and confidence — creating space to boldly declare truth and expect great things. Most recently, his song, “Gratitude,” hit number one on the Mediabase Impressions Chart as of 2023. Having spent a number of years releasing songs with Elevation Worship as well as Maverick City Music, he has taken home five GRAMMY® awards over the course of his professional music career, and he has been nominated for a total of ten. At the 2023 GRAMMY® Awards, he was nominated within five categories and received the following four awards: “Best Gospel Performance/Song” for “Kingdom” and “Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song” for “Fear is Not My Future,” as well as “Best Gospel Album” for Kingdom Book One Deluxe and “Best Contemporary Christian Music Album” for Breathe. In 2022, he was awarded his first GRAMMY® for “Best Contemporary Christian Music Album,” in recognition of the record, Old Church Basement. The 2021 GMA Dove Awards named Lake “Songwriter of the Year,” and at the same event, he was awarded “Worship Recorded Song of the Year” for the groundbreaking song, “Graves Into Gardens.” “This is a Move,” co-written with Tasha Cobbs Leonard, won a 2019 GMA Dove Award for “Gospel Worship Recorded Song of the Year,” and it was also nominated for a 2020 GRAMMY® Award. Lake’s full-length albums include HELP!, which serves as a declaration of truth and a “me too” in response to anyone who struggles with mental health — while his album, House of Miracles, was released in 2020 with a desire for the songs to become beacons of hope in homes across the world. Believing that people have so much more inside of them than they think possible, Lake longs to see Christians “live free and be everything that God has called them to be.”
