Professor Mary Carey, adjunct vocal instructor at the Nyack New York City campus, informed the campus community of great news: the Christ Tabernacle Choir led by her husband, Rev. Steve Carey, won a Dove Award recently for the song, “Hold On,” in the Traditional Gospel Song of the Year category.
The song is from the choir’s latest CD Change the Atmosphere. This was the fifth time the choir has been nominated for a Dove award and a first time win. Mary Carey is a conductor and soloist for the choir.
The Gospel Music Association (GMA) produced the Dove Awards show, a now 43-year-old tradition that celebrates contemporary Christian and Gospel music. The event place in Atlanta, GA on April 19 at The Fox Theatre and will be televised on the Gospel Music Channel on April 24.
Congratulations to the Careys and the Christ Tabernacle Choir!
