“We’re very happy so many guests from the mainstream hip hop community will join us to honor the best artists, producers, pastors, and leaders of the holy hip hop movement,” event founder Bobby “Tre9” Herring said. “And seeing that this is the largest hip hop awards show of any kind within Texas, we believe this is another reason why the nation’s eyes are looking favorably upon Houston.”
The Texas Holy Hip Hop Achievement Awards (THHHAA) honors artists, retailers, pastors, media, DJ’s, graphic designers, vendors and others for their outstanding achievements and contributions to the holy hip hop music industry. Awards will be given in over 25 categories to recognize the genre’s upper echelon of power movers.
This year’s event will be held in northwest Houston at Copperfield Church, 8350 Highway 6 North, Houston, TX 77095. The THHHAA features a wide array of events including artist development workshops, media access red carpet, awards show, and after party. Each year, the ceremony includes a variety of celebrity presenters and performers along with the established and up and coming Christian hip hop artists from across the state.
