NASHVILLE, TENN. (October 8, 2014) Capitol CMG and GRAMMY-nominated worship artist Kari Jobe was honored with the GMA Dove Award for Praise and Worship Album of the Year for her media acclaimed release Majestic. Jobe also performed her song "Forever" from the award-winning album during the taped broadcast. The 45th Annual GMA Dove Awards were held last night at Lipscomb University at Allen Arena and will be aired on TBN this Sunday, October 12. This marks Jobe's fourth Dove Award and first Praise and Worship Album of the Year.

"I am so overwhelmingly honored to receive this Dove," shares Jobe on her win last night. "Last night was filled with many sweet moments for me as I was able to lead worship with my song 'Forever,' to being presented my award from the legendary Bill Gaither and Pat Boone and then standing in front of a room of those I respect, admire and worship to their music. How sweet it is to celebrate what God is doing in our lives and in the lives of those that God is reaching through our music and calling. This is more than an award to me, it's an honor."

Jobe released her Dove-winning album Majestic earlier this year debuting at No.1 on multiple Billboard charts. The album was her first live-recorded album as well as full-length DVD. She recorded the album in her hometown at the famed Majestic Theatre in Dallas last year. Her live performances on YouTube from this album have generated more than five million views. She also appeared this summer on the Fox News' HUCKABEE program.

About Kari Jobe: For more than 15 years, well-respected worship leader Kari Jobe has been using her gifts to lead people into the presence of God. When she began leading worship at age 13, she never imagined she would be nominated for a GRAMMY®, win a Dove Award or be praised by the New York Times. After being established as a well-respected worship leader with her Dove Award-winning, self-titled debut, Kari Jobe released her follow-up album, Where I Find You, which earned Jobe her first GRAMMY nomination. Jobe has toured on the largely popular Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, Chris Tomlin's "Burning Lights" tour, the Hillsong Conferences (Sydney and London), Passion Conference, Women of Faith events as well as headlined her own tours. Jobe is the most followed female CCM artist on social media with more than 1.5 million fans on Facebook, 510k Twitter followers, and 261k Instagram fans.
