MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Memphis' own Kirk Whalum won big this weekend at the 2018 Stellar Awards.
The Stellar Awards are similar to the Grammys, but for gospel music.
Whalum, a Grammy award-winning jazz saxophonist and songwriter, won Instrumental Album of The Year for his album #LoveCovers.
He previously toured with Whitney Houston for more than seven years and was featured with a solo in her single "I Will Always Love You."
Great job to Whalum for keeping that soulful music coming and representing Memphis so well!
