We’ve been waiting for weeks and the awards have come and gone. The winners have been announced but we had people we were rooting for. Let us see those that won and those that didn’t.

SONG OF THE YEAR

And The Award For Song Of The Year Goes To . . . .

Our God by Chris Tomlin

Why was this is Our Pick

Well we can say this is the best worship song composed and recorded last year (at least featured on the nomination list for this category). And besides that it has been covered by big time artist such as Israel Houghton on his ‘Love God Love People’  Album.

And the winner was

Sometimes I Cry by Jason Crabb

MALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR

And the Award For Male Vocalist of the Year Goes To . . . .

Chris August

Why this is Our Pick

We would have chosen Pastor Marvin Sapp but we know Dove wouldn’t be giving it to him (since the fan base for the GMAs is majorly the Rock/pop listeners). Therefore with a great voice and an amazing musical style to go along, Chris August suits the bill!

And the winner was

CHRIS AUGUST!!!

FEMALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR

And the Award for Female Vocalist of the year goes to. . . .

Britt Nicole

Why this is Our Pick

Have you heard her acoustic EP? This girl’s got some vocal pipes. Dove, please do give it to her. Honestly no strings attached

And the winner was

Francesca Battistelli. We love her too

GROUP OF THE YEAR

And the award for group of the year goes to. . .

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound

Why this is Our Pick

I’m not fan of pure country music but watching a live performance from this band is enough to convince me they sure might be getting this category. But the question still is why Group 1 Crew isn’t in this category?

And the winner was

NeedtoBreathe

ARTIST OF THE YEAR

And the award for Artist of the year goes to . . . .

Natalie Grant

Why this is Our Pick

Apart from being a word class musician, I was astounded when I heard of the work Natalie was doing to reduce Human Trafficking worldwide alongside Pastor Christine Caine. Not just a bold voice but a bold life to go along, this lady deserves this.

And the winner was

Francesca. She is also and awesome artist

NEW ARTIST OF THE YEAR

And the award for New Artist of the year goes to. . . .

Forever Jones

Why this is Our Pick

For me, it was a tug of war between Kerrie Roberts, Chris August, Audrey Assad and Forever Jones. But no buts, no ifs, let’s give it up for the family band, a standing ovation for Forever Jones

And the winner was

Chris August
