JULY 15, 2022 (Atlanta GA) — Top-selling, popular Gospel star Jekalyn Carr was presented with the Key to the City, by City Commissioner, Natalie Hall last night, July 14, 2022, also proclaiming it “Jekalyn Carr Appreciation Day.” The event kicked off the exciting, events filled Stellar Awards Weekend in Atlanta.

Last night, at the Bear Tag Entertainment celebrity basketball at the Riverside Epicenter, Carr was presented with a proclamation and the Key to The City in recognition of her success as a Gospel artist and her contributions to the arts and entertainment community in Atlanta and her continued efforts in furthering opportunities for young women in Georgia.
