Gospel and Christian music artists came together Tuesday to celebrate the much-anticipated 52nd Annual GMA Dove Awards at Lipscomb University's Allen Arena in Nashville.

The show, which aired Friday night on Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) and SiriusXM, included moving performances from CAIN, Lauren Daigle, Natalie Grant, We The Kingdom, CeCe Winans and more.

Australian duo For King & Country, led by brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone, won Artist of the Year for the second year in a row.

While on stage, Luke recognized the hardships and "bumps" felt by many during the pandemic. For him it was throat surgery, yet he was "more convinced than ever that the power of music is transforming."

"The power of music gives life to a vocal cord," Luke stated. "The power of music changes eternal destinations for people ... don't forget that. Make this real to other people. Make this real all over the world, because it matters."

Winans won four awards including Gospel Artist of the Year.

"I want to thank all of those who were in the category with me, and all of the artists that are here, the young — and us who are old," Winans said. "God is faithful to every generation. And I am just honored to be a part of this industry. I'm honored to lift up the name of Jesus."
