The Color Honors Fellow Junos Nominees After Winning Gold

The Manitoba-born Christian band gives thanks to God and their fans for their second Juno.

Over the weekend, the 2022 Juno Awards ceremony took place in Toronto, Ontario.

After a four-year hiatus, The Color returns in 2021 with a new album, No greater love. The album was nominated for a Juno Award in the Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album category and won the award on Saturday.

Jordan Janzen, the lead singer, said the whole evening was special and gave them affirmation for their work.

“I think you want whatever you do, or whatever we do, even if it’s really a ministry, we want to do it at a level of excellence so that people are drawn to it and we want to do the best we can. with her,” says Janzen.

The group also had the opportunity to perform alongside other renowned Christian artists who were nominated for the same award, such as Manic Drive and Movement Worship.

“Everyone was so encouraging, before and after the award, which is cool,” Janzen said. “We’re all in there with the same goal in mind. We have to stick together because there’s only one category for gospel or Christian music.”

After winning their second Juno, The Color won’t be taking a break to savor their success. They have other shows coming up this summer, one of them being in Chatham, Ontario.

Janzen also hopes to go on tour to “try to bring back some of that normalcy of being on the road on a more regular basis.”
