#1 Gospel Album- Lecrae ‘ Anomaly’
#1 Gospel Song– Ricky Dillard ‘Amazing’
The Dove Awards
The Dove Awards was held yesterday and there were some surprising wins.
The church, Hillsong, also received a special lifetime achievement award. Douglass said the band started out just as a pastime for youth at the church.
“We started writing songs for our high school friends in our suburbs, songs that were our expressions to glorify Jesus,” Douglass said.
Other top winners were Switchfoot, with three awards, and Skillet with two awards. Rapper Lecrae and Bart Milliard of MercyME were the hosts for the awards show, which took place at Lipscomb University and airs on the Trinity Broadcasting Network on Sunday, Oct. 12. Mr. Tribbett took home a GMA Dove Award for “Contemporary Gospel/Urban Album of the Year,”
Performers for the show included some of the biggest acts in Christian music, including the Newsboys, for KING & COUNTRY, Natalie Grant and Mandisa, who also took home the award for pop/contemporary album of the year for her album, “Overcomer.”
In Other Notes:
Evangelist and Praise & Worship Singer Bev Johnson knows that a song can be an answer to a prayer. Singing in church for most of her life and behind some of Gospel music’s top artists including Beverly Crawford and Dr. Bobby Jones, she’s witnessed the power of a song and how God uses music to uplift. With the release of “It’s In You”, a stunning inspirational ballad from her forthcoming CD of the same name, she wants to remind listeners that everything they need is in the Lord. Returning after the successful release of her Christmas single in 2012, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas with a Little Love and Jazz”, Bev is making “It’s In You” available for download on iTunes, Amazon and CDBaby.
