NASHVILLE, Tenn. - (March 11, 2014) - The GMA (Gospel Music Association) announces today the date of the inaugural GMA Honors Ceremony to be held on Tuesday, April 29th at Lipscomb University's Allen Arena. The event celebrates those being inducted into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame as well as individuals and organizations that are impacting our culture globally both past and present. Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant are the first performers announced for the ceremony, with more to be added.

The GMA will induct producer Brown Bannister, The Gaither Vocal Band, Take 6 and posthumously Rich Mullins, writer of "Awesome God," into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame. The first ever Honors recipients include Ambassador Dr. Bobby Jones, International praise and worship leader Don Moen, tour pastor Michael Guido and world-renowned non-profit organizations Show Hope and World Vision.

General admission tickets are also available for purchase online HERE.

John Huie, CAA and Co-Chair of GMA Honors states, "The idea was to expand the GMA induction ceremony to include many talented artists and organizations that are making a substantial contribution through Christian music. Although this is the first year for GMA Honors we are getting a lot of strong industry support."

"The GMA Foundation is charged with observing our gospel music history and its trailblazers," says Jackie Patillo, Executive Director of GMA. "We have looked at all of our events with the desire to better serve our music community. I am grateful to John Huie, Gary Glover and Jay Powers, the Co-Chairs of GMA Honors, for their vision and labor of love, along with Jamie Shankland and the Lipscomb production team and Salem communication for their media partnership. Together we have retooled this event and it is going to be a very memorable evening."
