It was an exciting evening for Hip Hop artist, Steven Malcolm (IVAV), at the 48th Annual GMA Dove Awards. Besides being nominated for three prestigious award categories, which included New Artist of the Year, Malcolm gave one of the highlight performances for his single, “Party In The Hills.” The song drew a strong response from the industry and fan-filled audience. Guest artist Hollyn joined Malcolm onstage, as he performed Hip Hop raps and stylistic dance moves that brought audience members to their feet and ended with thunderous applause. The Dove Awards will air on TBN this Sunday, Oct. 22, at 8:00 p.m. CST.
The Dove Awards activities began earlier in the day for Malcolm, by attending the pre-show event that included the artist’s two other nominated categories, Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year and Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song of the Year. This was followed by walking the red carpet, and being interviewed backstage at a press conference and with individual media outlets after his incredible performance.
After coming off the successful 2017 "Winter Jam Tour" where Malcolm performed for over 650,000 people, he will be joining another major tour on Oct. 19. He will be featured on Sadie Robertson’s “Live Original Tour” that will visit 16 cities and conclude on Nov. 12. Malcolm will be performing songs from his self-titled album that reached No. 13 on iTunes Hip Hop/Rap chart.[Photo Credit: Jake Orr Visuals]
