24 CCM http://www.ccmmagazine.com/ 24 CCM 41st ANNUAL GMA DOVE AWARDS It’s touted as Christian music’s biggest night. And for good reason! The Dove Awards delivered on size and style. From American Idol champ Jordin Sparks to King of Christian pop, tobyMac to an all-star chorus led by none other then Michael W. Smith, the night was big! But perhaps bigger than all the celebrity, the fashion and of course, the honors, was the presence of the Holy Spirit who fi lled up the Grand Ole Opry house in Nashville, Tenn. so tangibly, you could only walk away with one conclusion… they had church! And CCM was there for it all… Enjoy! Above: fi nale; Right: Amy Grant. Next page, fi rst row: Nic Gonzales and Jaci Velasquez, Mark Hall.
