47th GMA Dove Awards Air On Trinity Broadcasting Network – DC Talk Reunites, Hillsong United & Lauren Daigle Win Big



Hosted by award-winning duo for KING & COUNTRY and Gospel Music powerhouse Tye Tribbett, TBN’s exclusive broadcast of the Dove Awards  Sunday night (which was pre-recorded on October 11) at the Allen Arena at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, included memorable performances from popular Christian and Gospel artists Matthew West, Big Daddy Weave, Greater Vision, TobyMac, Steven Curtis Chapman, Anthony Brown, Bethel Music, Hillsong United, Phillips, Craig & Dean, and more. One of the most talked about moments of the night featured DC Talk performing together following a 16-year hiatus. TobyMac kicked things off by performing one of his songs and then brought out bandmates Kevin Max and Michael Tait to perform “Love Feels Like,” a new tune that brought the three together in the studio this past year.

Among the presenters included Lecrae, Danny Gokey, Hillary Scott, Jason Ingram, LeAndria Johnson, Matt Maher, Chris Tomlin, Kari Jobe, Kirk Franklin, Bill Gaither, CeCe Winans, Hezekiah Walker, Jaci Velasquez, and many others.

Each year the GMA Dove Awards celebrate the contributions of singers, songwriters, recording artists, and other professionals throughout Christian and Gospel music. Top nominated artists this year included Lauren Daigle, Hillsong United, Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Kirk Franklin, Bill Gaither, and a host of others.

The theme for the 2016 Dove Awards was “Love Amplified,” which speaks to the collective power of unity when Christians come together with one voice. As artist after artist hit the stage to accept their awards, everyone stuck to the theme of the night, particularly gospel pioneer Kirk Franklin.

He took the stage to accept his award for “Gospel Artist of the Year” and urged his fellow Christian family to ask their audiences and congregations to “pray with us for racial healing.”
