If you missed the 51st Annual GMA DOVE Awards Show, then you missed a really special … special. Because of COVID-19, it took a different approach to the award show. But unlike other recent award shows, the Gospel Music Association decided to do something completely different presenting a variety of different Christian entertainers performing some of their best material without a live audience and the end result was a truly entertaining and creative evening of worship.
This week, GMA is presenting its first Easter special, Because He Lives: An Easter Celebration which will be presented a similar way. Hosted by Danny Gokey and Blanca, this special is conceptualized as a way to celebrate and recognize Christ’s death and resurrection through song, the star-studded line-up includes powerful performances by Amy Grant, Anthony Brown & Group TherAPy, CeCe Winans, Ellie Holcomb, Jekalyn Carr, Karen Peck & New River, Natalie Grant & Bernie Herms, Nicole C., and Zach Williams.
Because He Lives: An Easter Celebration will broadcast worldwide on TBN Thursday, April 1, 2021, at 9:00 p.m. EST / 8:00 p.m. CST with additional broadcasts at 11:00 p.m. EST / 10:00 p.m. CST and Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021, at 4:00 p.m. EST / 3:00 p.m. CST.
