Its that time again! Tonight marks the taping of the 43rd Annual GMA Dove Awards. Bringing together the best in Christian and gospel music, the show will reflect the diversity in the multifaceted body of Christ that many other Christian award shows miss.
Many times people are separated by great divides such as culture, race, and socio-economic status, but through Christ this divide is broken and unity is accomplished through the work of the Holy Spirit. The closing of this gap is nicely displayed with this year's Dove Awards. It will bring people together who otherwise may have never associated and introduce music that would have been casually overlooked because of style preference, to a new audiences.
What other stage brings together Donnie McClurkin and Jason Crabb, Lecrae and Natelie Grant? This is just the tip of the iceberg. Other notable performances will come from Jamie-Grace, Kim Burrell, Kari Jobe, Danny Gokey, Ruben Studdard, Mandisa, and the Isaacs.
Also among these talented artists, GRAMMY award-winning artists Mary Mary and Kirk Franklin will take the stage, along with iconic artists Jaci Velasquez, Angie Stone, and Wess Morgan.
The presenters for this year's show are no less spectacular. Christian artist and actress, Tamela Mann, mostly known for her Madea fame and soon to be for her role in the expected-to-be-classic remake of Sparkle, will be one of the presenters. R&B artist turned worship leader, best known for his hits "This Is How Do It" and "Let's Ride" will also take to the stage as a presenter.
The national televised premiere of the 43rd Annual GMA Doves Awards will air on gmc April 24th at 8 pm and 10 pm ET.
