Anthony's The Prayer Wins "outstanding Achievement Award.", Australian Gospel Music Awards Announced TODAY 8 March 07

A lovely piece of news...

CONGRATULATIONS ANTHONY

The late Peter Dodds McCormack, the composer of the "Advance Australia Fair" was awarded the Yamaha Golden Gospel Award for services to the music industry in Canberra today. This one of 25 awards given in recognition of the unique Australian Christian music sector that has seen strong growth over recent years. Australian Christian music industry sales exceeded $30 million in 2006 continues to grow rapidly (6% of total music sales, rising from 5.2% in 2003).

PRWEB) March 8, 2007 -- The late Peter Dodds McCormack, the composer of the "Advance Australia Fair" was awarded the Yamaha Golden Gospel Award for services to the music industry in Canberra today. This one of several awards is given in recognition of the unique Australian Christian music sector that has seen strong growth over recent years.

Whilst well known as the composer of the Australian National Anthem, Peter Dodds McCormack (1835-1916) was also a prolific songwriter, arranger and presenter of the Presbyterian Church. In this role he was responsible for forming church choirs across Australia, often against the very conservative elders of the period. In fact his efforts resulted in a world record when he conducted some 10,000 children and 1,000 teachers at the Raikes Sunday school Centenary in 1880 in Sydney. He was highly considered by many as the father of church choirs in Australia.

This is the first time a posthumous award has been made at the Australian Gospel Music Awards. Previous Yamaha Golden Gospel Award winners have included Jimmy Little, Sister Janet Mead and Francine Bell.

And in recognition of having the fastest selling Australian singles and the highest selling single in Australia of all time with "The Prayer," Anthony Callea was awarded the "Outstanding Achievement Award." Anthony was previously awarded an ARIA for the highest sales for this song which continues to receive wide airplay and is an excellent blending of a quality emotive tenor with a classic faith composition.

Amongst other awards, the Best Gospel Song went to "The Yearning" by Geoffrey Robertson, with runner up being "The Greatest Story Ever Told" by Wendy Cochrane. Other highlights included Best Lyrics to world famous a Capella quartet The Idea Of North's Trish Delaney Brown for "Prayer For Peace," rising R&B artist Skylla (a member of girl group "Sheeq") with Best Music for her CD title track "Trials Of Your Faith", and Col Joye prot�g� and praise and worship songwriter, Jim Peters with the Judges Commendation Award for "I Have Decided."

The Best Gospel Song 2007 in the Youth category was awarded to 18-year-old Albury bred Daniel Brinsmead (NSW), who wrote the song "Look Up" dedicated to his grandmother and was present at the awards.

For the third year running, Hillsong Church won the Best Independent Recording Artist Award for its domination of sales and airplay over the year.

The Australian Gospel Music Awards are presented every year by the Australian Gospel Music Association. The awards, also affectionately known as the "Angels," cover industry performance (sales/airplay), songwritting, genre and lifetime achievement and are the highpoint of recognition within the Australian Christian music industry.

Thank You so very much for that Lea :wub: Its really wonderful to know and Anthony is the only Australian included on that wonderful compilations album by some really great artists. :wub: The Prayer sung by Anthony will always be a most beautiful classic and IMO the most beautiful song by any artist ever. :wub: It has always been my favourite song since the very first time I heard OUR beautiful ANTHONY sing it on Idol and I listen to it every single day.

Anthony is just so amazing and The Prayer - his signature song - should be on compilations for many, many years to come. What an honour to be the only Australian recognised. Would be interested to see, had Anthony released a Christmas album, how many more of songs sung by him would have been added - maybe O Holy Night, Don't Save It All for Christmas Day, Grown Up Christmas List - just to name a few.

To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

To our dearest Anth - you are our heartbeat. We love you to the moon and back xx
