In an effort to capture both the trials and triumphs of 2020, the GMA is putting together a new kind of Dove Awards; one that will inspire through both music and story. Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s show will not be performed to a live audience. Instead, through a variety of pre-recorded performances, producer Paul Wright plans to incorporate a variety of new elements to create more of a cinematic approach than previous shows. In the video below, Wright shares his creative vision for this year’s reimagined event.
As these special moments are filmed and artists have been brought into this year’s format, many have expressed their excitement, including seven-time GMA Dove Award-winner, Natalie Grant, who said, “During this unprecedented time, what the GMA team is pulling together is absolutely incredible. They’re crafting something brand new that will uplift and inspire you and your family in a fresh way. It’s the Dove Awards like you’ve never experienced them before, and you won’t want to miss it!” GMA Dove Award-winner and 2020 nominee Jekalyn Carr shared her excitement saying, “One of my favorite things about the Dove Awards is how it’s always one big family reunion! Even though we won’t be able to be together in person this year, the GMA team is working to put together a new kind of show that will showcase the incredible stories and songs that have carried us through this year. I’m already inspired and I know you will be too.
