Select quotes from the evening:

"I want to just say that of all the names that get honored tonight, there is a name that is more powerful and more beautiful, and it is the name of Jesus." - Hillsong Worship

Something I've come to realize in my life in the last few years is that worship is more about seeing than singing. It's having your eyes open to the grace of God, the mercy of God, the goodness of God and the holiness of God. I always thought that I just helped people sing with my songs, but I realized that they were really trying to help people see the goodness of God." - Chris Tomlin

"Christian music saved my life and it means the world to us, means the world to me." - Bart Millard

"I am so happy to be doing what I'm doing for the Kingdom." - Tamela Mann
