  • The African Nova Scotian Music Association recognized the Choir for Best Live Performance (1998) and Best Gospel (1999)
  • East Coast Music Awards for Blues/Gospel Group of the Year (1997) and Gospel Group of the Year (2000)
  • Two seasons on national television in a thirteen-part series “Hallelujah” on CBC and Vision TV (1996-1997)
  • Performance at the Southern Christian Leadership Convention in Dallas, Texas in 1995

The Nova Scotia Mass Choir has produced three CDs – He Never Failed Me Yet, Heaven, and most recently, in 2016, Immanuel.

The Nova Scotia Mass Choir is currently under the musical direction of Shawn Downey.
