Once synonymous with Southern Gospel, GMAC has changed in Canada. Over the years talent such as Bruce Cockburn, Paul Brandt, Reliant K, and Thousand Foot Krutch has grown from Worship leaders and bands in small local churches into Internationally acclaimed artists selling millions of albums worldwide. The Van’s Warped Tour that has just rocked through Calgary featured Christian Rock artist’s Reliant K, and Anberlin. Last year’s Covenant Awards were hosted by Carolyn Arends and stand up comedian Leland Klassen with special appearances by Paul Brandt, Brian Doerksen, Starfield, Carolyn Arends, Steve Bell, High Valley, His Season, The Kry, Sebastian Demrey, Manafest, Drew Brown, Carried Away, Masters Four and Hokus Pick. Hokus Pick was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award and performed their classic hit I’m So Happy.

The 30th Annual Covenant Awards is sure to be most spectacular ever, as the talent in Canada is flourishing. We do not know yet who will be appearing at the awards as the nominees won’t be announced until September 16th, 2008, but we do know that this has been a banner year for all of our artists.

Date: October 24, 2008 - Venue: First Alliance Church, Calgary, Alberta, Canada - Seating: 1700
