Pro-Trump Singer Thanks the Lord for Grammy-Nominated Album
Kaya Jones, who performed on 'Let It Be Love' for Jason Crabb's 'Unexpected,' just might be associated with a win
Though the Grammy Awards in recent years have become infested with leftist politics, an album featuring one of President Donald Trump’s most prominent supporters in the music industry has a chance to be recognized this coming February.
Christian singer Jason Crabb’s album “Unexpected” is up for a Grammy in the Best Roots Gospel Album category.
The song “Let It Be Love” on the album features former Pussycat Doll, pop singer and outspoken Trump supporter Kaya Jones (pictured above left).
Jones seemed ecstatic about the news on Twitter.
She posted a quick video saying she could not sleep after finding out about the recent nomination.
She tweeted, “I am proud to announce that the album #Unexpected is nominated for a #Grammy Our song @JasonCrabbMusic #LetItBeLove is apart of music history. Thank you to @jaydemarcus for believing in my abilities for this record. Thank you Lord Jesus @RecordingAcad #GRAMMYNOMINATED.”

Jones serves as the Native-American ambassador for the National Diversity Coalition for Trump.
Politically, she has established herself as a pro-gun, pro-veteran, pro-life, pro-border security celebrity in the entertainment industry.
How are guns bad but abortions are good? The women telling you to get an abortion are the same women telling you the right to bear arms is wrong. So it’s ok to kill babies just not ok to defend yourself against abusers? Makes absolutely no sense

Wait let me get this straight.. You all are offering $1.6 Billion for our border wall and security but had no problem giving Iran $150 billion and $1.8 billion in cash. I think the American people “TRUMP” Iran. Now give us our funding for the wall! #BUILDTHEWALL #BuildTheWallNow

PTSD is a serious thing many people have to live with. THC/CBD oil could really help veterans who are fighting with this. We need to do better for our veterans

All I heard from people I spoke to in Hollywood about Trump was how he and the Republican Party were gonna take away their rights. Well what I see is all of those same people fighting hard to take my rights away from me. Trump and the RNC were never the problem. They were.

It would certainly be a change of pace for a pro-Trump singer to be part of a Grammy Award-winning album in today’s Hollywood.
After all, the awards show is essentially guaranteed to have an anti-Trump agenda when it airs next February — as most awards shows do these days.
Last year’s ceremony featured a video cameo of failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. who read a passage from Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” book to the crazed delight of most of the audience and viewers.
This time around, there’s again the potential for anti-Trump politics to be a talking point at the event, based on some of the other Grammy nominations.
In addition to Lamar, who is up for eight awards, Drake, a rapper who previously called the president a “f***ing idiot” at a concert in Brooklyn back in August, will also be at the awards show, as he is nominated.
Folk rock singer Brandi Carlile also has six nominations. Following the 2016 presidential election, she made her disdain for the outcome clear by saying, “I am really upset with Trump voters right now.”
And rapper Cardi B, no fan of Trump, either, is up for five nominations.
Not everyone in the music industry, though, agrees with the anti-Trump logic. And the nomination of an album like “Unexpected” with a contribution from an outspoken conservative like Jones is living proof of it.
