A popular Catholic recording artist from the US took home one of the top five awards at the 20th World Festival of Marian Songs in Guatemala.
The festival, which took place on November 29, brings together Catholic artists from around the world to perform a Marian song. Each artist represents his or her country and performs the song before a packed theatre and an international panel of judges.
Popular Catholic singer and songwriter Nancy Krebs, of Severn, Maryland, traveled to Guatemala representing the United States of America and performed her hit song “Queen of Apostles,” which she sang in English and Spanish. Krebs was chosen to be among the top five finalists, all of whom received an award.
“The World Festival of Marian Songs ranks at the very top of life’s experiences,” said Krebs. “The news of my being chosen as the representative of the United States with the #1 song ‘Queen of Apostles’ was wonderful news for me to receive; the greatest honor was the opportunity to sing for the Blessed Mother on the world stage—but to be chosen to represent my country was awesome,” she added.
