62nd Annual ICGMA Convention is a Huge Success


The 62nd Annual Convention and Awards Show of the ICGMA is now completed, and will long be remembered as one of the most powerful events ever staged by the organization.    ICGMA president Dan Duncan's opening statement to those assembled declared “This convention is all about Jesus! He's the main attraction and the central theme of the entire event.  May every word we speak and every song we sing bring glory and honor to Him.  Let us begin by inviting Jesus to the show”!   From the opening song on Thursday evening to the benediction on Saturday night,  Jesus Christ was exalted.  


The amazing lineup of talent appearing on the program included well known favorites, as well as first time members, sharing their God-given talent with the enthusiastic crowd.  Its obvious the calibur of talent gracing the stage reflects a continual improvement from year to year.  This years event has been repeatedly described as “One of the best ever”!   


ICGMA runs on prayer-power.  Not only daily prayers for several weeks preceding the convention, but prayer support among the artists; backstage, in the green room, in the Arena, back at the hotels, and anyplace where our people gather.  

The Saturday morning Chapel service with Barbara Fairchild and Roy Morris was one of the Spiritual highlights of the weekend.  Their ministry in song, thru the spoken word, as well as their personal testimonies were a wonderful inspiration to us all.  Each evening the Civic Center Theater was at or near capacity as people gathered to hear the greatest music in the world;  good Country Gospel Music. It is exciting to see so many new artists using their talents for The Lord. Attendees enjoyed Country Gospel, Bluegrass Gospel, and Southern Gospel Music.  The ICGMA presented awards in honor of excellence in 26 categories and inducted two new members in the ICGMA Hall Of Fame.  For a complete llisting of the 2018 Award Winners,  please click on “Awards” on our  Home page.  All glory and honor for the success of the 2018 ICGMA goes to our Lord Jesus Christ!  We extend our heartfelt “Thanks” to all our wonderful members who faithfully attend and support this organization.  Thank  you for sharing your Music. We love every minute of it!
