The AMAs are a fan-voted award show with winners determined by votes cast online as well as via Twitter. The voting is now open, and fans can vote by clicking on the AMA site

Hillsong UNITED released their latest studio album, EMPIRES, this past May to much acclaim, debuting at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart, at No. 1 on the Billboard Christian albums chart, and No. 2 on the Digital Albums chart. The album also remained in the Top 5 peaking at No. 2 on the iTunes overall albums during street week and was named Album of the Week from USA Today.
