In the beginning, almost 150 male and female artists from all of the genres found within Christian music were nominated for the Best Christian Indie Solo Artist. Five ladies stood head and shoulders above the rest and they were named your finalists. Each brought big talent and even bigger hearts for ministry to the voting table. In the closest race in the Christian Music Awards, voting went down to the wire and the results were so close, it was impossible to predict a final winner. After all of the votes were audited to remove any "gaming" of the system, a winner arose.

All of the unsigned artists in the Best Christian Solo Artist category are your faces to watch for in 2012 and the face/voice that you voted as the Best was Yancy with 45% of the vote!

This talented young woman sings, having released a series of pop/rock projects, a Christmas collection and a project specifically for young children. She also writes songs for other artists and devotional books for worship leaders and musicians. In case that's not enough, she spent five years as a staff worship leader and she has toured with everyone from 4Him to Nichole Nordeman, Newsboys to Mute Math. Talented, committed and living a life completely dedicated to her ministry, Yancy is making a huge impact on every life she touches.
