The Detroit Youth Choir (The DYC) lead by director Anothy White has been nominated for a Stellar Award, and the group is extremely excited but they need Detroits’ help to win this major award.

A Stellar Award is a great honor to receive within the gospel community, with the 36th annual ceremony being broadcasted from July 30th to September 5th. Keeping safety in mind they’ll bring the entire event to your living room, and soon the details will be posted on where you’ll be able to stream the entire event. Ballots are open to the public from now until April 19th and at KISS FM Detroit we want to help the youth bring this award home! Find out how you can support below.


Its Up to The D

We want to help Mr.White and The DYC to achieve this great honor of winning the category youth project of the year! The group is being nominated for their take on the song “Glory” that was featured in the movie Selma. The work caught the eye of John legend where he tweeted to the group.



Even the management of Mr.White is excited about the recognition.

“In my almost 25 years of management I never had artists to make the Stellar Awards.”

-Mgmt. Lavelle Nero

Following The DYC

Detroit The DYC and director Anthony White have had great success in recent years, but Mr.White has been a staple of the gospel community her in the D. Angie Starr had a great interview with The DYC director where he talked about how proud he is to be leading this great group of inspiring youth in the city. Also, he spoke about their upcoming Disney Plus series and gave some insight on what to expect.
