The upcoming 10th Annual ceremony will be broadcasting live in front of a sold-out audience from Visible Music College (www.visible.edu) in downtown Memphis, Tennessee on Tuesday, 2.22.22. In addition to the winners of 24 categories being announced, Dr. Alveda King will be on site accepting the first annual UNITY AWARD. President Donald J. Trump will present the award to Dr. King via video.
This new, annual award will recognize a celebrated public figure outside of Christian music who is continually using their platform and reach to encourage communities to find commonality above division, race and ideology through loving faith-based values and ethics.
Dr. Alveda C. King is the daughter of the late slain civil rights activist Rev. A.D. King and the niece of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A leading pro-life activist and the founder of Speak for Life, Dr. King has dedicated much of her life to fighting for the sanctity and dignity of all life–from the womb to the tomb. She is a Fox News contributor and host of the Fox Nation show, Alveda King’s House, and currently serves as the Chair of the Center for the American Dream at AFPI. Dr. King is a former college professor, served in the Georgia State House of Representatives, is a former presidential appointee, and 2021 recipient of the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award.
“Unity has always been at the center of the WE LOVE CHRISTIAN MUSIC AWARDS,” shares founder, Kevin McNeese. “The more we can focus on common ground, despite our differences, the better off our collective communities will be. I’m excited to be able to welcome Dr. Alveda King to our event in Memphis, and look forward to bringing her spirit of faith-based unity to the entire evening.”
Presented by Christian music site NewReleaseToday.com, the live, 2-hour ceremony will be broadcast exclusively at WeLoveAwards.com starting at 9 PM EST/8PM CST. The night will be hosted by DREAM Records’ pop recording artist Branan Murphy and 5-time GRAMMY® nominated and Bethel Music worship recording artist Dante Bowe.
