“We’re excited about this opportunity to raise awareness for the legacy of Gospel music. Each of these inductees or honorees has made a definitive mark on the fabric of our musical tapestry. While each has different gifts and has contributed in different ways, all of their stories highlight God’s faithfulness. We’ll be able to celebrate this through GMA Honors with some very special friends and truly inspiring performances,” says GMA Executive Director, Jackie Patillo.
