Select quotes from artists about the 51st Annual GMA Dove Awards:

“I think with the Dove Awards, the uniqueness of it, is that they take all the walls down, take all the divides out and come together to celebrate each other.”- Danny Gokey

“The Dove Awards, from the beginning, said two great things to me - excellence and diversity. To see all the different representations and expressions of Gospel Music, of Christian music, of Jesus music was so beautiful to me.”- Jonathan McReynolds

“It shows all the different styles that make us one, yet that common theme, which is the hope of Jesus, the love of Jesus.”- Natalie Grant
