Chancellor Bennett, known by his stage name "Chance the Rapper," took home three Grammys during the annual music awards ceremony Sunday — but gave all the glory of his success to God.

Bennett first won the award for "best new artist" after a breakthrough year in 2016 that resulted in seven Grammy nominations, including for best rap album, best rap song, best rap performance and best rap/sung performance.

When he was announced as the best new artist of 2016 over The Chainsmokers, Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini and rapper Anderson .Paak, Bennett rushed on stage with two close friends and immediately praised God for where the Lord had brought him.

"Glory be to God. I claim this victory in the name of the Lord," Bennett said boldly from the stage.

"I want to thank God for my mother and my father who have supported me since I was young," he added. "And I want to thank God for putting amazing people in my life."

The show's producers tried to rush Bennett off stage 30 seconds into his acceptance speech, but they simply couldn't stop Bennet from shouting his praises to God.

"I know a lot of times I talk about my independence and people think it has something to do with—" Bennett started as music began playing loudly. "Oh, Ima talk, y'all can play the music all you want."

"I want to thank God for my team. I know that people think you do it by yourself, but independence means freedom, and I do it with these folks right here," Bennett said.

"Glory be to God! I declare the victory in the name of the Lord!" he shouted before exiting the stage.

In addition to praising God in front of tens of millions around the world, Bennett also performed "How Great," the hit song from his award-winning album "Coloring Book," which is a mash-up of a choir singing the worship song "How Great Is Our God" and Bennett rapping about the gloriousness of Jesus.

And of course, when Bennett took the stage to accept his awards for "best rap song" and "best rap album," he also declared his love of God.

"I love my family, I love God and I love music. Thank you guys," Bennett said when accepting his award for best rap song.

"Once again, I want to thank God for everything He has accomplished for me and everything He has went through with me," Bennett said when accepting his award for best rap album.
