GMA’s Dove Awards 2020: Full list of all Winners

The 51st Annual GMA Dove Award winners were announced via worldwide broadcast, which aired exclusively on TBN. Under the theme “Carry The Change”, the show celebrated Gospel Music’s diversity and promoted unity through dynamic performances and testimonials.

The night’s biggest awards went to For KING & COUNTRY for “Artist of the Year”, We The Kingdom for “New Artist of the Year”, Tasha Cobbs Leonard for “Gospel Artist of the Year” (presented by SoundExchange), and Joseph Habedank for “Southern Gospel Artist of the Year”.

Re-imagined to accommodate the absence of a live audience, this year’s Dove Awards featured numerous one-of-a-kind collaborations including a historic performance by “Contemporary Christian Artist of the Year” winner Tauren Wells featuring Christine D’Clario, Jenn Johnson, and Jekalyn Carr.

More special moments included heartfelt stories from fans about songs that have impacted their lives as well as insights from favorite artists like Zach Williams, Natalie Grant, and Jonathan McReynolds talking about this year’s pandemic pause and the things they’ve experienced through it.

There was also a specular moment where Sinach performed her global anthem ‘Way Maker’ which according to many people around the globe helped them to hold onto hope during the lockdown periods.
