The GOSPEL MUSIC ASSOCIATION (GMA) announces multi-DOVE AWARD winners BART MILLARD of MERCYME and LECRAE as co-hosts for the 45th Annual GMA DOVE AWARDS, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 7th, 6:30p CT at ALLEN ARENA on the campus of LIPSCOMB UNIVERSITY in NASHVILLE.
Rap and Hip-Hop recording artist LECRAE said, "I can’t wait to be a part of what I believe will be a historic evening. Co-hosting with a great friend and talented artist makes it even better. Be careful though, who knows what will happen when BART and I get together."
BART MILLARD added, "I’m so excited to be part of this year’s DOVE AWARDS. The DOVES are unique because they bring all styles of Gospel music together. LECRAE and I are just a small example of how different and yet unified this community is in sharing a message of love and hope through music. To prove how unified we are, I will be freestylin’ my fresh rhymes while LECRAE sings the chorus to 'I Can Only Imagine' over and over!"
