Nashville, TN (February 23, 2022)
Fresh off New York Fashion Week, where Five-time GRAMMY Award-nominated artist, Dante Bowe, mingled with the likes of Ivy Getty, Lilly Buffet, and Ezra J Williams, at Oscar de la Renta and Vogue100‘s Fashion Week Fête; Bowe made his very first runway debut at the Blue Jacket Fashion Show. The award winning artist was handpicked by Tommy Hilfiger himself to wear his timeless brand during the show, which paid homage to fashion icon and its former host, the late great André Leon Talley, while raising awareness to prostate cancer.
It’s safe to say that Dante Bowe is living his dream.
And now, “joyful,” the lead hit single from multi-platinum recording artist Dante Bowe’s sophomore album, circles, reached No. 1 on the Billboard Gospel Chart, and No. 3 on Hot Gospel Songs Chart. The introspective album which reflects on the death of his grandfather and the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020, debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums Chart, making it the highest solo charting position of Bowe’s career. In addition, Bowe closed out the season with top ten placements on three different Billboard Year End Charts, hailed as the Top New Gospel Artist of 2021—No. 9 overall for Top Gospel Artist, No. 4 for Top Male Gospel Artist, and No. 4 on Top New Christian Artists.
With music’s biggest night on the horizon, Dante Bowe is also making history as the first artist to have the greatest number of simultaneous Grammy nominations in both Gospel & Christian music genres with 3 solo and 2 group Grammy award nominations for the upcoming 64th Grammy Awards including Best Gospel Performance/Song twice for “Voice of God” and “joyful,” Best Gospel Performance/Song for “Wait on You” with Elevation Worship and Maverick City Music; Best 5 Gospel Album with Maverick City Music for Jubilee: Juneteenth Edition, and Best Contemporary Christian Music Album with Elevation Worship & Maverick City Music.
Known for his distinctive raspy vocals, Bowe won his first Dove Award at the 52nd GMA Dove Awards for Contemporary Gospel Recorded Song of the Year for “joyful.” The award-winning songwriter made history with “joyful” again and became the first artist to have his song chart on both the Billboard’s Gospel Airplay and Christian Song charts, bridging the gap between Gospel and CCM formats.
Recently seen on The Tamron Hall Show, Bowe shared his humble beginnings and historic Grammy nominations, along with an exclusive performance of his fresh, feel-good anthem, “joyful.” The chart-topping artist was also recently featured at the 49th American Music Awards red carpet, and has been featured in Variety, Billboard, Entertainment Tonight, Vogue.com, and BET.
Bowe is set to embark on his first Spring 2022 tour, What Are We Waiting For? – The Tour, as a solo artist with four-time Grammy award winners & Pop Sensations, for KING + COUNTRY. Dante Bowe’s dominance in both the fashion and music industry is just beginning, and he is unstoppable.
