The Marlin Awards which were launched on March 16th 1996 by media  executive Kevin “Minister K” Harris some twenty six years ago is now  considered the premier gospel music awards that recognizes and  honors Bahamian and Caribbean Gospel music globally.

Then in 2022, the awards were  rebranded the Caribbean Gospel Music Marlin Awards, bringing  together for the first time, artists from throughout the Bahamas and  the Caribbean.  

According to founder and President Kevin “Minister K” Harris, we are  extremely humbled by how far we have come over these many years  and how much we have grown. 

We are especially delighted to know that with the pending celebration  of our Silver Jubilee Anniversary, the Marlin Awards now stands as the  longest running gospel music award show in the Bahamas and in the  Caribbean.
