    Mary Mary, Donnie McClurkin and Heather Headley walked away from Sunday’s Grammy Awards with top honors, leading a strong pack of Gospel winners.

    McClurkin, earning the first award of the evening, accepted Best Gospel Performance for “Wait On The Lord.” Joined by Karen Clark Sheard, McClurkin embraced fellow Grammy nominees Tonex, who presented the evening’s electronic and gospel categories.

    Clark Sheard, thanking McClurkin, celebrated the win — her fourth Grammy win overall.

    Taking a step back to Gospel roots paid off for Heather Headley, who picked up Contemporary R&B Gospel Album (“Audience of One”).

    Israel Houghton and Mary Mary also picked up awards at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards.
