Five-time GRAMMY® Award nominated and now seven-time Dove Award-winning family group Karen Peck and New River was honored at last night’s 50th Annual GMA Dove Awards.
The group won the Southern Gospel Recorded Song of the Year Dove Award for their #1 hit single “I Know I’ll Be There,” penned by Karen Peck Gooch, Dave Clark, and Wayne Haun. Karen Peck & New River was also honored to be a featured performer during the program, singing their number one hit, “Gotta Be Saved.” Other performers included Triumphant Quartet and Joseph Habedank.
When asked about the award Karen Peck Gooch responded, “It was such a beautiful, wonderful time at the GMA 50th Annual Dove Awards Celebration. “I Know I’ll Be There” won Southern Gospel Song of the Year! It was a privilege to write it with Wayne Haun and Dave Clarke. We love the Guardians who were the presenters of this category, which made it even more special. Then tonight KPNR performed with Joseph Habedank and Triumphant on a SG segment. What an honor– I loved every minute of it!”
The group is working on their newest project titled Lift His Name. Their current single, “The River,” has been rising in charts and is currently number 2 in the country.
