Colorado Springs, Colo. (April 24, 2012) - - Integrity Music, long known for introducing new songs to the global church such as OPEN THE EYES OF MY HEART, REVELATION SONG and SHOUT TO THE LORD, was honored at the 43rd Annual GMA Dove Awards with two of its songs receiving awards in the categories of Worship Song of the Year and Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year.

The song YOUR GREAT NAME, penned by Michael Neale and popularized by artist Natalie Grant among others, received a Dove Award for Worship Song of the Year. The song was also recognized with nominations in the categories of Song of the Year and Pop Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year. Neale, co-writer Krissy Nordhoff and Grant share the story behind YOUR GREAT NAME at

Jesus, worthy is the Lamb that was slain for us / Son of God and man
You are high and lifted up / And all the world will praise Your great name

The song HOPE OF THE BROKEN WORLD was also honored, receiving a Dove Award for Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year. HOPE OF THE BROKEN WORLD was written by Jennie Lee Riddle, who in 2010 won a Dove Award for Worship Song of the Year for penning REVELATION SONG. Riddle, co-writer Carl Cartee and the group Selah, who recorded HOPE OF THE BROKEN WORLD as the title track of their new album, discuss the song at

You are the day spring / You are the morning star / Creation's splendor speaks of who You are
You are salvation / You are the joy of the earth / Restoration comes / Hope of the broken world

"The songs YOUR GREAT NAME and HOPE OF THE BROKEN WORLD represent varied expressions that help the Body of Christ give voice to their worship," says Craig Dunnagan, vice president of Music Publishing and Worship Resources for Kingsway and Integrity Music. "We pray and believe, by God's grace, that these songs will live in the Church for many years to come."
