GOSPELflava.com reached Israel Houghton for comment on his first Grammy win. He stated that "It is an honor to represent the Kingdom of God and to be Salt and Light in the world. The people of South Africa brought worship out of us by teaching us what it is really all about. This, on behalf of New Breed, is for them and all worshippers worldwide. We look forward to serving the Body for generations to come."
