Ernie Haase, a nationally renowned gospel singer out of Stow, has been nominated for a Grammy for his latest effort, Something Beautiful. The album was nominated in the Best Roots Gospel Album category.

Haase released the album, a tribute to Bill and Gloria Gaither, last spring with his quartet, Signature Sound. The Gaithers, both of whom are Gospel Music Hall of Fame members, join Ernie Haase + Signature Sound on the release.

During a career that stretches back nearly a decade, Ernie Haase + Signature Sound have traveled all over the world, and they’ve hit some pretty significant milestones along the way. Tony Bennett's former musical director Billy Stritch produced their recent holiday release, A Jazzy Little Christmas, the group has performed the national anthem multiple times at NBA games and it's appeared on ESPN with NASCAR.

The Grammy Awards take place on Sunday.
