KINGDOM CHOICE AWARDS
The Kingdom Choice Awards has been branded as the nations official award show for Christian Hip Hop/Urban Gospel music and culture. Many people have called the KCA the “Source Awards” of Christian Hip Hop because it embodies the authenticity of CHH culture. The KCA was founded by Kingdom Time Enterprises CEO, Marcus Hall, in 2009 and it has been a huge blessing to the entire Urban Gospel fraternity. For the last ten years the event has been held at the Kumble Theater on the Long Island University campus, which is located in Downtown Brooklyn, New York (2 blocks away from the world famous Barclay Center).
The KCA has honored Hip Hop legends and pioneers such as Mike Peace, Corey Red, Kurtis Blow, Gospel Gangstaz, Flame, Da Truth, Pettidee, Canton Jones, Tre 9, Aziz Brimah, DJ Wade-O, K-Drama, Mahogany Jones and more. The event has seen some unforgettable performances by heavy hitters such as Andy Mineo, Social Club, Eshon Burgundy, Wande, Steven Malcolm, Jor’Dan Armstrong, R-Swift, Swoope, Bizzle, Brinson, Xay Hill, Datin, Transparent, Sean C.Johnson, Uncle Reece, David Veira, Heesun Lee, Beleaf and many others. The production for the KCA is executed in a spirit of excellence and the show has a very professional presentation that gives attendees an official award show experience.

Due to the Covid pandemic, the 2020 KCA was cancelled and the 2021 event had to be hosted at Church City USA due to the closure of the Kumble Theater. KCA 2021 was a huge success. Even though the event sold out quickly due to the limited venue space, the audience was the largest, because for the first time, the KCA was live streamed globally.
After much discussion and thought, the KCA executive team have decided to take a leap of faith and move the event to the prestigious Peter Norton’s Symphony Space which is located on upper Broadway in New York City. This is a big move for the KCA. The new 760 seat, state of the art theater is a significant upgrade that will help the KCA to maximize its potential. Kingdom Time Ent, CEO, Marcus Hall said ” This move is a leap of faith but I’m confident that if we get the support we need, it will be successful. I’d rather try and fail, than fail to try. From day one, the KCA was a faith move, for over a decade, God has always showed Himself to be faithful”.
The KCA executive team is inviting 2022 sponsors to sign up to partner with Kingdom Time Entertainment for this years event. There are three feature packages for sponsors to choose from. The KCA executive team is open to customizing sponsorship packages for potential sponsors. (Click link below to view packages)
