Last week in Orlando Florida, CMB Momentum celebrated Christian Radio. Included in the awards was Big Daddy Weave of Fervent Records. The band received the Rich Mullins Artist Impact Award for their contributions to the music and ministry of christian radio.
The most amazing part was who accepted the award. Bass player, Jay Weaver made his first appearance since he had both feet amputated as part of ongoing efforts to fight a deep infection in his body.
‘The relationship we’ve had with our friends in Christian Radio all of these years is a huge honor to us,’ shares Jay Weaver. ‘They believe in and support the mission we’ve been given. Now to be mentioned by them in the same breath as Rich Mullins is truly humbling.’
Jay continues, ‘The way our friends in radio have rallied around my family through all of this says so much about them. People who would have never heard about this in any other way except through Christian Radio have been praying for us, with us seeing a physical reaction to that in our lives.’
A heartwarming response from such a difficult time for the band.
