Talented gospel artiste and award-winning vocalist, Lara George is doing us proud. The more we think we have had enough of her, her talents just keep proving us wrong. It has now been established in all quarters that she is one of Nigeria â€™s best in and outside the country.
Few weeks back, the respected vocal gymnast who recently won the Best Vocal Performer (Female) at the Hip Hop World Awards,Â was selected as one of the voting academy members of BET set up to decide the winners in different categories.
Last weekend, Lara emerged as the Best Gospel Act of the Year 2010 at the City People Entertainment Awards in Lagos. The audience confirmed the fact that it was a well deserved award due to the standing ovation and applause all for the great singer.
In the same vein, she is also in contention for the Best Gospel Act Category in Nigeria Entertainment Awards (NEA) coming up in the United States on 18 September, 2010.
Showbiz Trends learnt that immediately after the awards ceremony, Lara George will proceed on a tour of the United States where her esteemed fans are already waiting for her superlative performances.
She has also recently been selected out of hundreds of candidates, as one of the few finalists to take part in the British Council initiative called the Creative Entrepreneurs (formerly tagged Creative Lives).
