Kari Jobe, a well-known worship leader, was nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for “Best Contemporary Christian Music Album” for her album The Blessing (Live). The nominated album has been a career highlight for Jobe, with the title track winning the GMA Dove Award for “Song of the Year” in 2021. This is her third GRAMMY nomination in her career. The 64th GRAMMY Awards will air on CBS on Monday, January 31. “Wow – it’s so sweet to celebrate what God has done and is doing through The Blessing,” Kari Jobe says after learning of her nomination today. “This album was a labor of love to make, and it’s an incredible honor to be nominated for a Grammy! Thank you to Henry Seeley, Austin Davis, and Cody Carnes, as well as the Recording Academy. My fantastic band and crew. The songwriters who assisted me in the creation of these songs. I also enjoy working with my label and management team.”

Jobe recorded the music live during the pandemic in 2020, despite her strong desire to worship in front of a live audience, as her first new album in three years. The live album, which was recorded in a unique way, includes 15 tracks and more than three hours of worship. The album’s title comes from Jobe, Cody Carnes, and Elevation Worship’s viral global hit song “The Blessing,” which was nominated for a GRAMMY Award for “Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song,” won the 2020 “Worship Song of the Year,” and received RIAA Gold Digital Single certification.

The Blessing (Live) features songs co-written by Cody Carnes, Austin Davis, Jacob Sooter, Jonas Myrin, Elyssa Smith, Steffany Gretzinger, Chris Brown, Steven Furtick, and Passion’s Kristian Stanfill and Brett Younker. The album was produced by Cody Carnes, Austin Davis, Henry Seeley, and Jobe. 
This year she also embarked on “The Blessing Tour” performing songs from the nominated album hitting 42 cities with more than half of those as sold-out dates.
