The new AbsolutelyGospel.com (formerly SoGospelNews.com) hosts and first list of performers have been announced for the 2012 Absolutely Gospel Music Awards Celebration, taking place Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at the River of Life Church in Smyrna, TN (Nashville area).
Two of the gospel music industry’s most respected female voices and personalities will serve as this year’s hosts: Karen Peck Gooch (Karen Peck & New River) and Sonya Isaacs Yeary (The Isaacs).
Karen Peck Gooch is considered one of the greatest voices in Southern Gospel music and has been awarded the Favorite Soprano award in the Singing News Fan Awards 11 times.
Sonya Isaacs Yeary, known across multiple genres of music including Country, Southern Gospel, and Bluegrass, co-hosted the 2010 Awards Celebration and has been awarded two Female Vocalist of the Year, two Songwriter of the Year, and two Musician of the Yearawards
Performing on this year’s Awards Celebration are The Isaacs, Karen Peck & New River, The Perrys, Wilburn & Wilburn, Beyond the Ashes, Eighth Day, and Mark209. In addition, Jeff & Sheri Easter will lead a multi-artist tribute to a legend in the Gospel music industry. More performers and details will be announced.
Since the Gospel Music Association, whose Dove awards are also held in April, made the decision to move their ceremonies to again Atlanta in 2012, the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards Celebration may now be Nashville’s biggest Christian music event.
