Jamie Grace also performed at the 43rd Annual GMA Dove Awards, which will air on the Gospel Music Channel tonight at 8 and 10 PM EST.
"Going to the Dove's was amazing, being nominated and performing... an honor I can't explain - winning? I cried for a good 20 minutes in total,” Jamie Grace states. “Being in my hometown, spending that evening with my parents and being considered as an artist when I was in a room of people who truly inspire me was an overwhelming experience that I'll never forget. So thankful that God has given me this opportunity and I pray I can continue to grow into who He wants me to be."
"Jamie Grace is as exciting a new artist as I have ever witnessed," states Jamie Grace's long-time mentor TobyMac. "She is fresh, charming, and a serious songwriter. She is the gospel whether singing or not!! As Jason Crabb put it on Twitter... 'Jamie, Gotee Records blessed us when they found you!' We're all blessed to have a Jamie Grace."
Many offered their congratulations to Jamie Grace via Twitter, including Reba McEntire, whom Jamie Grace has admired for years, and "The View" co-host Sherri Shepherd.
