Dove Awards 2012 - Most Diverse Christian Awards Show to Take Place

It's 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 multi-faceted body of Christ that many other Christian award shows miss.

The Dove Awards celebrates music that brings people together who otherwise may have never associated. The event also looks to introduce music to new audiences that may otherwise have been casually overlooked because of style preference.

Donnie McClurkin and Jason Crabb, Lecrae and Natalie Grant are just some of the names coming together for this year's awards. But 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.
