Local music sensation Kerrigan La-Brooy is buzzing after being nominated for multiple music awards.
Mr La-Brooy, a Berwick resident and pastor of Cranbourne’s Gethsemane Church and Charity, is up for 17 gongs at the Fair Play Country Music Red Carpet Award Show, based in Holland.
He has also been nominated in nine categories at the International Singer Songwriter Association Awards 2021, including International Male Vocalist of the Year, International Male Rising Star and International Album of the Year for his album ‘Thank You Precious Lord’.
The winners of both contests are expected to be announced later in the year.
It’s been a big year for Mr La-Brooy, who has won 14 awards since June.
Six of his songs have reached gold, six have reached platinum status and one has reached multi-platinum.
“I’m so happy, it beggars description how I feel,” Mr La-Brooey said.
And it seems talent runs in the family, with his daughter Tempest also being nominated for a music award in the Red Carpet Award Show.
“If I don’t win one, I don’t care, as long as she wins hers!” he joked.
“But she’s already a winner in my eyes! It’s good to see her following in my footsteps.”
