Columbia mayor pro tem Councilman Brian DeQuincey Newman will present the Key to the City to National Gospel Recording Artist Martha Munizzi for her excellence in music ministry and her outstanding contribution to music, arts and culture. The presentation will take place on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at 12:00pm at the 16th Annual Eau Claire Fest at the Eau Claire Town Hall in North Columbia.
Munizzi has captured the hearts of gospel music lovers with songs like “Say The Name”, “Glorious”, “Because Of Who You Are” and “Jesus Is The Best Thing (That’s Ever Happened To Me)”. A protégé of praise and worship icon Israel Houghton, Martha Munizzi has become a household name in the Christian music industry. Singlehandedly, the GRAMMY and Soul Train Award Nominee and Dove and Stellar Award Winner has literally changed the face of the inspirational genre. Not only has she changed lives through her ministry, but she has savored the success of it as well becoming the best-selling independent artist in the history of gospel music, selling over 500,000 units.
