American multi-generational family band We The Kingdom earned the prestigious title of “New Artist of the Year” at the 51st annual GMA Dove Awards.
This marks the inaugural Dove Award win for the group, who performed their eight-week chart-topping hit, “Holy Water,” on the official Dove Awards broadcast, which aired Friday evening (10/30) on Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN).
We The Kingdom shared following their win:
“Our hearts are so full and grateful. Thank you so much to everyone who has listened to our music and supported us.
The journey has been indescribable,” . “We’re thankful that God has been able to use the pain and everything we’ve walked through to get here to communicate His love to people.
This wouldn’t have been possible without you and without our incredible team. Thank you so much. We love y’all! Let’s keep making music!”
We The Kingdom earned a total of four nominations this year—the first Dove nominations of their career. In addition to their nod for “New Artist of the Year,” the collective’s No. 1 single, “Holy Water” vied for “Song of the Year” and “Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year.”
Moreover, their debut EP, Live at the Wheelhouse, was up for “Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year.”
Meanwhile, the group’s current single, “God So Loved,” reached the summit of Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart, having already amassed more than 17M global streams.
“God So Loved” serves as We The Kingdom’s second consecutive No. 1 single from their full-length studio debut, Holy Water, which crowned Billboard’s Top Christian Albums chart upon release.
In anticipation of the holiday season, on Friday, October 30, We The Kingdom released an original Christmas song, “Light of the World (Sing Hallelujah),” available at all digital streaming platforms now.
