Phil Wickham Earns Four GMA Dove Awards Nominations
California Based Contemporary Christian musician, singer and songwriter Phil Wickham is celebrating four Gospel Music Association (GMA) Dove Award Nominations for his August 2018 release, Living Hope. With the LP receiving a nomination for Worship Album of the Year, the title track was also nominated for Song of the Year, Worship Song of the Year and Worship Recorded Song of the Year.
The 50th Annual GMA Dove Awards will take place on Tuesday, October 15 in Nashville, Tennessee. Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) will exclusively air the show on Sunday, October 20, 8 p.m. EST / 5 p.m. PST. Voting for the final winners will run August 21 through August 28.
Living Hope was largely inspired by Wickham’s role at Harvest Bible Fellowship leading worship and writing songs for the church community. He collaborated with 19 other songwriters on the project, a first for the artist who historically hasn’t done much co-writing for his albums (collaborators include Chris Tomlin, Mack Brock, Kristian Stanfill, and Jonas Myrin and more).
Written with Bethel Music’s Brian Johnson, the title track, “Living Hope,” boasts over 42 million streams and was a top 10 Billboard Christian radio hit. Presently #7 on the CCLI Top Song chart, churches and worship groups are singing “Living Hope” across the U.S. and around the globe.
Additionally, Wickham made a special appearance in the acclaimed and also GMA Dove Award Nominated film, “Breakthrough,” performing his No. 1 hit, “This Is Amazing Grace.” The movie is up for Inspirational Film of the Year.
