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. Up until the pandemic, the KCA was held at the Kumble Theater on the Long Island University campus, which is located in Downtown Brooklyn. In 2022 KCA organizers made a leap of faith by moving the event to Peter Norton’s Symphony Space, Broadway, New York, NY. The move proved to be pivotal in propelling KCA to the next level.
