Multiple Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter and best-selling author Ellie Holcomb was nominated for two GMA Dove Awards this week for her Christmas project, Sing: Christmas Songs. She was recognized with a nod for “Children’s Recorded Song of the Year” for the song “Sounding Joy” and the Christmas/Special Event Album of the Year category.
“Full of JOY at the news of my children’s Christmas record, Sing: Christmas Songs, receiving TWO Dove nominations,” Ellie Holcomb shared upon receiving the nomination news. “I wrote these songs for kids from 1 to 92 and I’m so grateful they have resonated with so many families!”
This was Holcomb’s first Christmas EP and was featured on HuffPost’s “New Christmas Music” list. The nominated project and song were released alongside her latest children’s book, Sounding Joy, which landed at No. 4 on ECPA’s Christian juvenile best-sellers, Christmas 2022 list and was a Top 10 Amazon Best Seller for Children’s books. She also won the GMA Dove Award for “Children’s Album of the Year” in 2020 for her album, Sing: Remembering Songs.
