Above is a video of Russ Taff performing at Red Rocks. A tribute to Russ Taff was one of the highlights of the 2012 Dove Awards.
The Dove Awards will be aired again at 9 p.m. MDT Saturday April 28 on the Gospel Music Channel.
Here's a quick peek at what you can expect on the Dove Awards show airing on the Gospel Music Channel. (FYI the Dove Awards are the only music awards that incorporate all genres of music from hip-hop, heavy metal to traditional gospel, and the show features performances from a wide-range of artists.)
Some highlights: a tribute to Whitney Houston and Gospel legend Russ Taff; former Denver resident and hip-hop artist LeCrae performing, a special performance from former "American Idol" finalists, including Mandisa and Phil Stacey; a song by bluegrass group The Isaacs; along with appearances by Michael Tait, Todd Smith, Blanca Callahan, Natalie Grant, Danny Gokey and more.
The show is co-hosted by comedians David Mann and Chonda Pierce, who keep the show going at a quick pace with light moments.
