Delirious? last night (5th April) won a Dove Award for their collaboration on the compilation album 'Music Inspired by The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe'
, which features the song 'Stronger'. The album won the Dove Award for 'Special Event Album of the Year'. The Dove Awards, also known as the GMA Music Awards, are the biggest awards in Christian Music.
The Narnia album was released by Sparrow Records in September 2005 to accompany the recent 'The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe' movie. In addition to the Delirious? track 'Stronger', taken from their latest album 'The Mission Bell', the Narnia album also features songs by Jars of Clay, Steven Curtis Chapman, Jeremy Camp, Bethany Dillon, Rebecca St. James, Toby Mac, Nichole Nordeman, David Crowder Band, Kutless and Chris Tomlin, who himself took home a total of five awards.
The winners of the 37th Annual awards were announced last night at a ceremony in the Grand Ole Opry House, Nashville, hosted by Rebecca St. James and Kirk Franklin. This year was the second time that Delirious? have won a Dove Award, after also winning the 'Special Event Album' award in 2000 for their contribution to the 'Streams' compilation album, which featured a duet of 'Find Me In The River' with Amy Grant.
