MULLINS, S.C. – Pastor Eartha Edwards was singing long before establishing Harvest Time Evangelistic Center with her husband Bishop Chris Edwards in Mullins in 2001. Her love of gospel music is highlighted at 11 years old when she was allowed to lead a song at the Pentecostal Assembly of the World Convention. Seeing the reaction from the congregation was the moment she realized that God had graced her with a gift, she said. That God given gift has resulted in Edwads performing for crowds across the country and recording music that is earning even more national recognition.

Pastor Edwards received a nomination to the 39th annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards on July 20 in Las Vegas. Edwards’ latest project “It All Belongs to God” is nominated for Traditional Female Artist of the Year.

“I’m trying to adapt,” Edwards said of the honor. “I’m totally excited about receiving this honor as a nominee. Just to be on the list for the Stellar Awards is exciting.”

Edwards said the album featuring multiple live recordings started climbing the Billboard charts within six months after release.

“It actually crossed over to R&B and that was surprising,” she said. “I think they liked the beat. We had outstanding musicians and I know that had a whole lot to do with it.”

Edwards performed at last year’s Stellar Awards along with two songs on the Bobby Jones show and the 54th GMA Dove Awards. She recently held an outdoor concert in Mullins.

Edwards said her mission in life is to honor  Jesus Christ. The Marion native is the daughter of the late Pastor Connie Dickerson.

“This traditional category really fits me because I was raised up on it and it’s kind of like my identity,” she said. “I love the effect that it has on people and I knew this is a tool I’m going to use to encourage people.”

Edwards said the nomination has already opened doors.

“I’ve been doing this all my life,” she said. “I want the opportunity to go out and share the gospel.”

Edwards said she is going to continue to praise and worship and hopes to inspire other artists.

“I’m forever grateful,” she said. “To be among the list of stars and celebrities I’ve looked up to is very encouraging.”

Edwards said she already feels like a winner.
