Dove Awards Announce 2013 Winners [FULL LIST]

Dove Awards Announce 2013 Winners [FULL LIST]The winners are in for the 44th Annual Dove Awards.  Matt Redman leads all awards with 6, TobyMac and Jason Crabb follows with 4, Tasha Cobb and producer Wayne Haun scored 3 each. Chris Tomlin, Tamela Mann and Lecrae scored 2.

The awards were taped yesterday at Nashville’s Lipscomb University and will premiere on Monday, October 21 at 8 p.m. EDT on UP (Formerly Gospel Music Channel).

“We all run the race and it’s tough, so we need a night of encouragement,” said co-host Amy Grant while kicking off the 44th Annual GMA Dove awards.

TobyMac said, “It feels weird to be called artist of the year when I know it takes a family and I always want to acknowledge that. I said in one of my songs a long time ago, I’m just a little man trying to fit in God’s plan. I still feel like that.”

UP, formerly GMC TV, surprised Mandisa by honoring her with their “Uplift Someone”. The ‘Uplift Someone’ award embodies the organization’s core values of uplifting and inspiring others and recognizes an artist who through the message of their music and acts of positivity and kindness, has encouraged people across the nation and truly changed lives. Presented to Mandisa by Grammy® Award-winning artist Amy Grant, the network granted the award to the singer “for her music, message and humanitarian heart, all of which (individually and collectively) have inspired others.”

This evening celebrates the unifiying and uplifting power of this genre and demonstrates why this is the biggest night of Christian and Gospel music. There is no other network dedicated to showcase this prestigious musical celebration other than UP.”
