LOS ANGELES, May 7 /Christian Newswire/ -- JCTV was honored last month in Nashville, Tennessee, at the 39th annual Dove Awards. Filmed in part as an exclusive broadcast special for JCTV, Audio Adrenaline Live From Hawaii received the prestigious Gospel Music Association Dove Award for Best Long Form Video of the Year.
The JCTV special captured the last live concert performance of the legendary Christian rock band Audio Adrenaline, best known for their 1993 hit Big House as well as for the band’s numerous festival appearances. In addition to the live concert at the Waikiki Shell in Honolulu on April 28, 2007, the special featured intimate interviews with band members, their closest friends, and some of their most diehard fans who made the trek to Hawaii to celebrate the band's retirement.
"We were honored to have played a role in bringing the raw emotion of a legendary band bidding farewell to its fans around the globe," says TBN's chief of staff, Paul Crouch, Jr. "The award is simply icing on the cake."
JCTV has worked with many of Christian music's brightest stars – from The Newsboys and Rebecca St. James, to The Katinas and Out of Eden – creating riveting, exclusive broadcast specials for viewers around the world. This summer, JCTV continues to offer the best in Christian concerts on television, beginning with an exclusive broadcast special featuring hit Fervent Records' recording artist PureNRG.
