"During last year's ceremony in Memphis, Covid-19 wasn't a blip on our collective radars," shares We Love Christian Music Awards Founder, Kevin McNeese. "And then, three short weeks later, the entire world changed. The fact we're able to come together and celebrate the collective talents and achievements of artists and groups over the past year is so special."
McNeese continues: "But above that, we want to acknowledge the true creator that makes everything possible–God almighty–who has given us the strength during this past year to continue to show up, create, and love well."
