GOSPEL MUSIC CHANNEL (GMC) celebrates NATIONAL GOSPEL MUSIC HERITAGE MONTH across its multiple platforms in SEPTEMBER.
For the second consecutive year, GMC joined with the UNITED STATES SENATE and the HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES to create the "NATIONAL GOSPEL MUSIC HERITAGE MONTH" initiative. The dual legislation, passed by both houses of CONGRESS, designates SEPTEMBER 2009 as "GOSPEL MUSIC HERITAGE MONTH." The initiative was created by GMC with sponsors THE RECORDING ACADEMY, GOSPEL MUSIC ASSOCIATION, GOSPEL MUSIC WORKSHOP OF AMERICA and THE STELLAR AWARDS.
GOSPEL MUSIC CHANNEL will celebrate on air with world television and network premieres, documentaries, concerts, original specials and series, interstitial pieces and music each weekend of SEPTEMBER. Online at www.gospelmusicheritage.com, GMC will feature historic and classic performances and other footage, expanded interviews, historical trivia and a calendar of gospel-related events. On-demand, programming and content will be available in GMC's video-on-demand offerings as well.
