The Marlin Awards was launched in 1996 by entertainment executive Kevin Harris. From 1996-2000, the awards were known as The Bahamian Gospel Music Marlin Awards and were only presented for outstanding achievement in Bahamian Gospel Music. In keeping with the original vision of the Marlin Awards, in the year 2000 the awards expanded to include eight (8) new categories to recognize other styles of Caribbean Gospel Music. In 2002 the awards were officially renamed the Caribbean Gospel Music Marlin Awards, fully integrating all Bahamian and Caribbean gospel music styles. Since its inception the awards have grown, starting with sixteen (16) categories to now over fifty (50) categories which include the prestigious Song & Album of the Year awards.
