In an industry as fickle as the music business, Larnelle has consistently managed to maintain a sound and identity distinctly his own, while still remaining a vital and hugely popular part of the ever-evolving picture of popular music. After more than 18 albums, 5 Grammy's and 11 Dove Awards, Larnelle maintains a passion for his work that finds its roots far deeper than the simple making of music.
Few names are as synonymous with Inspirational music as Larnelle Harris. Admired by fans and peers alike for his majestic tenor voice, Larnelle has become the epitome of talent and integrity in a career that spans over three decades. Honored with five Grammy Awards, eleven Dove Awards including being named Male Vocalist of the Year three times, a Stellar Award and numerous other accolades, Larnelle was one of the first Christian artists to cross racial barriers and build healing bridges with predominantly white churches who had never had a black singer on their platform. Songs such as "How Excellent Is Thy Name," "I Miss My Time With You," "I've Just Seen Jesus," plus many others, including his signature song, "Amen," are now considered modern classics.
Still a sought-after vocalist for special events and ceremonies, Larnelle also continues to perform solo concerts for churches and Christian organizations worldwide each year. His latest recording entitled "I WANT TO BE A STAR" has garnered three, top 20 national radio singles, including the hit "Look At Your Hands" which went to the top 3 position. Billboard Magazine dubbed "I WANT TO BE A STAR" another gem in the crown of one of Christian music's true treasures." In October 2007, Larnelle was inducted into the prestigious Gospel Music Hall of Fame.
