Inductees for the Gospel Music Association’s 7th Annual GMA Honors and Hall of Fame have been announced and this year’s inductees include 4Him (CCM), Bill Hearn (non-performing), Commissioned (Gospel) and The Isaacs (Southern Gospel). The 2020 honorees are Chris Tomlin for Angel Armies, Steve Moore for The Shalom Foundation, Wes Campbell and Dave Wagner for Thriving Children’s Foundation (TCA), and Willie Moore Jr. for Bethany Christian Services. The inductions will take place on Wednesday, May 6 in Nashville, with presenters and performers to be announced in the coming weeks.
The GMA Honors & Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony supports the preservation efforts and educational programs of the GMA Foundation. The event celebrates individuals and organizations in gospel music that are making considerable contributions to the world through their humanitarian efforts, as well as their talents.
“The GMA is humbled to have an evening such as this to honor our industry’s leaders and innovators,” said GMA President and Executive Director, Jackie Patillo. “We continue to be in awe of how gracious each and every one of these recipients are in sharing their talent and philanthropy around the globe.”
Artists are eligible for inclusion in the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame after 25 years of participation in music and ministry. The GMA Hall of Fame Committee comprised of historians and industry leaders from the various gospel music genres selects nominees. Inductees are chosen by electors across the industry in four categories: CCM, Gospel, Southern Gospel and Non-Performing. Nominees can be submitted for consideration year round by the public at gospelmusichalloffame.
