Hillsong United Wins Five Awards at 2014 GMA Dove Awards in Nashville, TN

Hill Song United Worship Band

Hillsong United worship band led the 45th Annual Gospel Music Association (GMA) Dove Awards with five wins. The GMA Dove Awards featured top artists from many different genres of Gospel and Christian music and is Gospel music’s biggest night of the year. Hillsong United is a band that started as a part of the Hillsong Churches.

Hillsong Church is affiliated with Australian Christian Churches and is a Pentecostal mega church. The church was founded in 1983 when Sydney Christian Life Centre at Waterloo merged with Hills Christian Life Centre in Baulkham Hills. The band was initially formed by friends who were part of Hillsong’s youth ministry called Powerhouse Youth, which for many years was under the leadership of youth pastors Phil and Lucinda Dooley.

The 2014 Dove Awards were held in Nashville, Tennessee on October 7 at Lipscomb University but did not air until Sunday, October 12 on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). Each year a spotlight is shown on leading artists in the Gospel music industry during a ceremony which is always star-studded. According to Jackie Patillo, GMA director and president:

“The Dove Awards stage represents all genres of gospel music on one stage. The unity and diversity that we experience when our artists and industry come together is awesome to me. It’s what heaven is going to look like. I think it makes God smile, as we fulfill the desire of His heart and unite as one and adore Him.”  Via guardianlv.com
