ATLANTA (AP) — The Dove Awards show for Christian and gospel music returns for the second straight year to Atlanta and organizers hope to hold another successful and inspiring event.

Music artists ranging from Yolanda Adams, Natalie Grant to rapper Lecrae are expected to perform at the awards show, which will be taped Thursday at the Fox Theatre in downtown Atlanta. The show will air on April 24 on GMC, formerly the Gospel Music Channel.

Singer Jason Crabb, who is up for artist of the year, leads all nominees with eight. Laura Story is up for six nominations and Lecrae received five nods for the show, which has run for 43 consecutive years.

Actor David Mann of Tyler Perry’s sitcom “Meet the Browns” and Christian comedian Chonda (SHAHN’-duh) Pierce will co-host the show.
