Dove Awards

Last night, the 45th Annual GMA Dove Awards took place at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee. Prior to the official awards ceremony, Hear It First streamed the Dove Awards pre-show and red carpet events live! (To see a replay these events, click here!)

 

During the Dove Awards pre-show, Hillsong UNITED’s popular worship song “Oceans/Where Feet May Fail” won both Pop-Contemperary Song of the Year, and Praise and Worship Song of the Year. Performers included JJ Weeks Band, performing their song “Let Them See You.”

 

During the Dove Cares Red Carpet event, Jaci Velasquez interviewed various contemporary Christian artists, including For King and Country, Sidewalk Prophets, Colton Dixon, Fire Flight, Red, Bart Millard of MercyMe, Lecrae, and 1 Girl Nation.

 

Bart Millard and Lecrae were co-hosts at the official Dove Awards ceremony. Performers included Mandisa, performing her song “Overcomer,” and the Newsboys, performing “God’s Not Dead.” Hillsong UNITED’s “Oceans” went on to win the Song of the Year award, and the band themselves won Artist of the Year, making it a night full of wins for Hillsong UNITED. Ellie Holcomb won the award for New Artist of the Year.  The movie God’s Not Dead won Inspirational Film of the Year.
