Gospel Jazz Music Pioneer BEN TANKARD has received three Dove Award nominations for his FULL TANK CD. Tankard is nominated for: Contemporary Gospel/Urban Song of the Year, Contemporary Gospel/Urban Album of the Year, and Instrumental Album of the Year. ”Even after twenty years it seems the music industry is still buzzing with excitement about my records and I am honored to just be an instrument and allow God to play through me over and over again,” Tankard shares.
Tankard is very excited about the upcoming premier of his family Reality TV Show with Bravo TV / NBC – Thicker Than Water: The Tankards. This docu-series follows the former professional basketball player turned popular gospel/jazz recording artist and minister, his blended family and their journey in expanding the family fortune. From music-producing to NBA life coaching and motivational speaking, this business-oriented family strives to keep on top of their game, but finds their true passion lies in ministry.
“I am blessed to have the world’s most exciting blended family, with 5 grown kids, 2 daughter-in-laws, one grandchild and a great wife,” Tankard shares. ”There never seems to be a dull moment at the Tankard Palace with plenty of love and life lessons to go around. You will LOVE this show if you have ever heard these words from your parents – ‘I brought you into this world and I will take you out’!”
Thicker Than Water: The Tankards is a comedic cross between The Cosbys and The Brady Bunch and will premiere this fall.
